News & Grammar Bit #2.

I’ve been passed along the Versatile Blogger Award again! Many thanks to Jill, from Nymfaux, and Danya at A Tapestry of Words! Be sure to check out their blogs.

You can check out my original Versatile Blogger Award post here.


In other news, Trisha at Trisha’s Book Blog has started a weekly post, titled Link Your Reviews. It’s a new, collective way to see reviews that you might have missed. If you follow a lot of blogs, you know how difficult it is to keep track of each and every posted review passing through your Blog Updates. So Trisha’s weekly Linky allows any blogger to add any of their reviews so fellow bloggers can stop by, scan the list, and find a review for exactly what they’re looking for.

There’s a few reviews already posted, including one of my own, but Link Your Reviews needs more promotion, so stop by!


Lastly, I’ll leave you with a Grammar Bit!
