Welcome first time visitors

I started off my day by checking to see how many visitors I had in the last day. All I can do is to quote Ghandi "HOLY COW!". It seems the folks at IT2M reviewed my site today. Not a great review, but okay. At least I didn't get bitch-slapped or nuked. Apparently, they have some clout and they have sent quite a few people my way. Welcome to all.

Although the site navigation makes sense to my warped brain, most of the feedback I received was that the "Archives" link on the side bar points to my other blogs. I can see how this could be confusing. Techinally, they are other blogs. But the contain all the stuff that I previously posted on this blog. The Rebeleyeball Links is like a table of contents for all of my posts. Of course, it doesn't have a summary of each of the postings which can be a drag as well. What can I say, I'm freaking lazy.

The Break link takes you directly to all of the chapters of my novel-in-progress that first debuted on this blog. I put them there so my readers could enjoy my book without having to read my daily drivel. I mean, my extrememly entertaining blog.

Additionally, I have a blog that is a preview of my first novel Web Site.

As my regular readers know from one of my previous posts, I did contract a professional web designer to develop a more robust web site. Unfortunately, he seems to be the only peron in the world that is lazier than me. Not an excuse, just a fact. Regardless, things here aren't as organized as they could be. I feel like a bunch of people showed up at my house and I was still in my bathrobe vacuuming the living room.

Truly, the reviewers at IT2M have an excellent following and I am very appreciative that they took the time to review my blog. One thing I take exception to is that a few people referred to my blog as "dry"? DRY? Moi? Hell, no. But okay, whatever. Subtle humor is lost on some.

Anyway, my warmest welcome to all newcomers. I hope you can see past the mess that is Misadventures of a 42 year-old writer wannabe and enjoy your stay.

Hi Paul,

Have you linked to Bestest Blog of all Time? It is a very popular site, and I get a lot of my traffic from there. You don't have to surf to earn credits like blog explosion either. It's worth a look.

Regards, Rhys

I'm not a first time visitor, but I've been periodically reading your posts. We have a few things in common (both writers, males, and I just turned 43). I like to see what others in my age group are doing. Keeping blogging and writing. You're doing a bang-up job.
