Once again, our host, Batocchio, has rounded up a year-end harvest of the Best of the Blogs as selected by the bloggers themselves, in the time-honored tradition begun by the lamented Jon Swift/Al Weisel, whose blog blended satire with a great blog-link as you would be blog-linked-by concept crucial to the furtherance of smaller and newer blogs. This great tradition, as continued by Batocchio, by Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, by Tengrain of Mock, Paper Scissors, and by Mike's Blog Round-up at Crooks and Liars, has meant the world to small blogs like mine for spreading the word that we are out there and writing some pretty good stuff, if we do say so ourselves.
So I encourage you, my readers, to go take a look at what the latest round-up has to say. It's a wonderful tour of old and new blog-faces--a walk through of posts you may have already come across combined with an introduction to new faces. It is one of our interwebs' finest traditions, and I am pleased, as always, to have been a part of it.
Enjoy, and if you find some writer strikes your fancy--give 'em a follow or a link to your own blog. This community we create online can be a beautiful thing. Connect! Respect! Keep blogging!
