Thank You Chris Ferrell

You are probably familiar with the Battlestar Galactica post from January 2nd. It was written by Chris Ferrell one of the authors of Nerds of the Round Table. I wanted to start a series on my blog that would have stamina. So often people get ideas and they may last for a couple of months then fade out. This series of guest bloggers will appear on the first Saturday of every month. So far four bloggers have either volunteered or agreed to be guest bloggers when I asked them.

That leaves eight months left to fill. Feel free to come forward. I would love to hear from you. I read recently that guest blogging should be a win-win-win decision. The guest blogger wins because he gets to share his thoughts with a new audience. They usually put together perhaps a post that rivals their best post on their site and that creates a winning situation for the host blog. The host blogger gets to share a new voice with their regular readers giving a new flavor to their reading palate. Lastly the readers of both blogs win because their regular experience on each separate blog is made new and fresh again.

In addition the comments left help give each site links that through Google’s system should help increase our page ranking in search results and therefore increase traffic to both of our sites.

I am humbled that Mr. Ferrell agreed to guest blog for me and I have already thanked him but I want to thank him again publicly. Thank you Chris. I feel it was a complete success for both of us. I know you enjoyed writing the post because the subject is close to your heart. Indeed, Battlestar Galactica was one of the best shows in television history.

Guest blogging on February 6, 2010 will be JeLisa from …And They Lived Blogging Ever After. If you have never read any of her posts, head on over for a visit and get a taste of what you will get here in February.

Thank you.

Must Read Blog Posts: Installment One

I apologize that this list isn’t more exhaustive. As I come across more of what I feel are the best posts on the Internet I will add them here. Also I will on occasion add links that are not from blogs but in my humble opinion still qualify. I think I will make a concerted effort to exclude political posts out of my list.

Excluded are also blogs mentioned on the Honorable Mention posts as well as anyone who opted to submit their favorite post for shameless blog promotion. Please visit these sites and leave comments too.
