Me: Yeah, so just 3 blogs to plug for today's Pay it Forward Blogfest.
Self: Cha, so which ones are YOU going to choose?
Me: *feeling quite put out* ME!!! What?
Self: There's no way I can pick just 3!
Me: Ohhhh...so just stick ME with the hard job. Alex and Yoda - I mean - Matt MacNish - are the ones that put this together and they are spectacu-awesome. Should we pick them?
Self: I dunno? Why're you asking me?
Me: *rolls eyes heavenward*
Self: Sheesh. Anywhatnow..
Me: Yeah, yeah, I know. It's just...only 3? I heart ALL my blogs. Just want to roll them all up and give'em a big group hug.
Self: Ugh! Focus!
Me: Sorry...okay. Maria Zaninni is one of my faves. She encouraged me to take the leap into blogging.
Self: So I can blame her for your new obsession?
Me: Really? Tangent much? Besides, you didn't blame her when you were curled up reading her book all smiles and feeling nice. Now, get back on track. I love Cate's SSS and 1000th.monkey does SSS as well and I love to read them every time they post. Oh, and I love the Ninja - Ali Cross - and her dojo. And there's Elana Johnson. Her wit is quick and sharp. Can't forget Bookanista Christine Fonseca. Creepy Query Girl is awesome by name alone and her blogs are always fantastic. Zap's Lobster Tank, Write.Skate.Dream, and Writing the Other are such wonderful finds, too. There's Nadja and Isis. Nadja has the Ren3 piece that has my eyebrow doing that thing (hehe!) And the recent interview at Isis's blog was so great. E.R. King, Susan Kaye Quinn and PJ Hoover are so awesome I'd have a hard time NOT picking one of them. Maybe a guy blogger like David or Reece Hanzon? What do you think?
Self: *eyes glazed over, doe in headlights, nobody's home anymore*
Me: *snaps finger*
Self: Wait, what? Did you say something?
Self: What did I miss?
Me: You didn't hear a word I said after I mentioned Maria's book, did you?
Me: You. Are. Hopeless. Look, I can't handle you right now. Go find something to read and be happy.
Self: That went about as well as expected :-)
So if you came here today expecting only 3, I apologize, sincerely. We - I mean - I couldn't make up my mind. There are so many blogs I just want to tell you to go to them all!
How did everyone else do? Am I the only blogfest fail? Please, this shouldn't be a reflection on this blogfest. It's just, well, the only thing I could decisively do was be indecisive. :-(
