On my way here, I noticed that page views for this blog are about to hit 20,000 - well, sometime in the next couple of weeks. Can't be bad. So, by way of spreading a little of the love - or is that 'lurve'? - thought I'd recommend a couple of blogs I haven't recommended before, but wherein I guarantee you'll discover some pretty damned fine writing.
I've been a regular visitor to one since the beginning of the year, when a young friend confessed she was blogging. Since then, her blog has accompanied her travels around Europe, while many of us have tagged along with her words. It's witty, astute, well-crafted writing, and can be found at: http://palindromeiam.wordpress.com/
I was pointed in the direction of the other site only yesterday (thanks, Rhianna), but liked it so much that I hung about to read every short story, vignette, article and snippet that Howard McKenzie-Murray had posted there. I particularly enjoyed the Foreign Correspondent pieces, but even the By-line and Biography are deftly written and worth lingering over. You'll find yourself over In My Little Country of Long Summers very smartly if you click here.
