There are many exciting things taking place behind the scenes, as usual. Before I get into those, I want to very briefly address two news items that dominated yesterday.
Terrorism in Norway
It is hard for me to even get my head around this tragedy. There appears to be much more to the story. I’m not going to cover it extensively here. The Anchoress has a wonderful round-up of the situation here. Again, I get the feeling that there is so much we aren’t being told. I’m not the only one.
Death of Amy Winehouse
I wish I could say that I was surprised at this news. I wasn’t. It was building for quite some time. I see her death as completely avoidable. I’m so tired of people dying of drug overdoses, famous or otherwise. I will be discussing this more in-depth in a separate post.
Ok, now for the news here. I’m now going to be contributing to BlogCritics, which is associated with Technorati. I’m also looking forward to possibly contributing to Technorati itself. Stay tuned! Anything I post at those sites will at least be shared here. I may even repost some items. I’m anxious to see how this will play out. I want to see how my experience at BlogCritics rates before I try becoming a contributor to Technorati.
Also, Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde will hopefully have a new contributor in the near future, my friend Cheryl Hedlund. We are currently working on the details. She has many new projects in the works as well. I have her to thank for my invitation to Google+!
You may also notice some cosmetic changes to the blog that have already taken place. I finally got around to adding some links to some great blogs and websites. Please do check them out. Most of them are well-established and several I’ve followed for years. You will find everything from writing advice to art to politics. Enjoy and stay tuned!
