Blogging so far

Well, I haven't been at this for long, but so far I have enjoyed blogging. One thing I like about LJ is the ease with which I can follow my friends' blogs. By doing that, I just saw my friend Mindy mindy_klasky got the cover art for her next book (very exciting news). Also, I often find that miladyinsanity often posts notices of author blogs and web pages with really interesting, useful, and sometimes plain funny information.

I feel like I am using the web in a way that's closer to its true potential!

But I am still such a newbie. You won't believe how long it took me to find out how to put those head-and-shoulder icons into this post. I call them Parcheesi people because they sorta look like game markers to me. Thank goodness for FAQs!
