I like to believe Beth Cato's post
was influenced by my own penchant for LOLCats.

I love your pick of the week, Jon! I belong to a writing group & I've noticed a tendency by several members to really wallow. They just spur each other on and, maybe it's just me, but my desire to respect & support them dwindles with each pity party or catty remark regarding another author's success. But I've been at a loss how to address it without offending everyone. I think I'll definitely be sharing that post. :)

You've linked to Lydia Sharp in the past. I've always enjoyed reading her blogposts.

And of course I get to follow celestialgoldfsh on my blog and share her joy there!

There are always so many great blog posts out there. It's hard to keep the list down to just 10 or so a week.
