In conclusion, I would just like to say I've been mentoring several bloggers for a while and it is important to know that the work of a blogger whose url has only 10 hits can be ranked alongside a blogger whose url has 10,000 hits or more. I would like other would-be writers and bloggers to benefit from the fact that I am a bestselling novelist (`Vegemite Vindaloo', published by Penguin) and career journalist with almost 30 years' experience in writing, editing, design, newspaper technology and production.

I wish I had time to read all those blogs but I don't. There are a few on your list I read and I agree they are excellent...Kissing the Dogwood and Ruth's Blog.

Moved up to 28! Hey!

Would be interested to know what criteria you use David, this would be really useful.

Al Gore got the Nobel Peace Price and I moved ahead to place 44. What a week! :-)
Thank you, David!

I hope your manuscript is ready for the printers and you can enjoy a quiet Sunday.

Well, sit me on a rainbow and cover me with dew - wheyhey!! Thank you David, you've made me toes curl up, so you have. Thanks for putting the shine on my week..

Thank you for your very kind comment as well, David. My only regret is: Why were you not born as my brother ... we could have conquered so many things in this world early on, in absolutely delightful ways.

Holy Moly David. I've been working hard all day so went for a little nap. I just got up and am still bleary eyed, so I had to rub them hard when I saw your list.
(Now I have Panda eyes) :)

I ask you, what could be more pleasing than to be your Number 1! This high will keep me going for days and weeks. Thank you! x

Thank you, David for the visit to my site, your comments, your generosity in giving me a few minutes of your time, and for the upgrade to Wild Card. I feel like I've won the Lottery or something !
I'm going to continue the Macro Monday photo theme on a semi-regular basis. I hope others here may want to join in on this, as there are some really talented photographers that frequent this site.
