Yay! It’s SAFE FYB week.

It’s the time of year for goodwill to all etc. With that in mind, I’ve decided to start a new December tradition. I’m calling it SAFE FYB week (share a favorite entry from your blog week).

Here’s how it works:

Of all the journal entries you’ve made this year, do you have a favorite? Would you like to share it? If so, send me the title, together with the link and I’ll post those details here on my blog for all my other friends to see. It doesn’t matter what the post is about. If you’re proud of it, that’s good enough for me.

To start things off, here’s my entry from the 8th of August:

Have fun looking back through your posts to select a favorite to share, but don’t forget to send me the link when you find it. I’m looking forward to reading your selections.

On an unrelated note
It's the weirdest thing, but lately when some people comment on my journal, I don't get an email telling me, even though I've always got them when those same people commented before. If anyone has any thoughts on why that might be, I'd appreciate hearing them.
UPDATE: Definitely not getting notified about most comments now. very peculiar. I'll see if I can figure out what's happening, but in the meantime, I'll keep checking the actual posts to make sure I don't miss anything.

Read your rejection letter. Thought it was for real then got to the part about crossing out the name.

Then, I thought, "Oh, maybe this was when he first started writing."

Then I read the part about the crimson ink and thought, "That's weird. I thought this guy was smarter than that."

Wasn't until I got to the 'b/c your office is in California' part that I figured it had to be a joke.

Funny. :-)

Thank you :)

The sad fact is, my actual first query letter really wasn't so much better than my fictitious one: http://jongibbs.livejournal.com/23770.html

So, which of your posts do you plan to share for SAFE FYB week?
