I have a blog as well, but I am not terribly reliable about updating it. I also post reviews of fantasy and science ficiton novels, but they aren't on my blog proper at the moment, they're in the two groups I belong to on LiveJournal, and they're all in my Memories section. You can find my blog in my sig too. :)

 

Edit: Huh. I didn't even realize you could block signatures. OK, to make things easier, you can find my blog here:

I have one, but it is very boring--no bells and whistles, no running commentary, no promotion of it at all--it amounts to just a book journal with reviews of everything I read. I started it as an online storage place for my book journal when I lost almost everything in a hard drive crash. Now, of course, I have an external hard drive to keep bunches of stuff on, but I still end up going to copy/paste my reviews there, at least a couple times a month.

Argh! All you signature people...LOL I have signatures blocked (because there are so many very annoying ones) so I sometimes miss good stuff. Will investigate further when I have a bit more time.

I thought if the people that had blogs posted them in one thread everyone would be able to look them up.  I do look at signature lines sometimes but not often.  I really enjoy reading blogs.

Cheryl - I block signiture images otherwise (SHINY OBJECTS! SHINY OBJECTS!) I wouldn't be able to read threads at all.  I keep the text in, as nothing too irritating - and often useful stuff - can be seen.
