    Don’t we all wish we could do this writing thing full time. Good for Susan. I read her blog over at The Urban Muse and look forward to seeing her other work in print. The blogging community is small I find. I almost feel like I know everyone personally. I see an article in a national newspaper by some of my online friends and I think “hey I know that person”.
    I have also bought two books from my interactions online. It will be neat reading them seeing I “know” the authors, who are bloggers over at Ask Alison (Alison Winn Scotch) and Trish’s Dishes (Trish Ryan).

    Thanks, Patricia! I met Trish for coffee once and she is every bit as funny and gracious in person as she is in her blog.
