Halloween is on hold today. But I hope to get a few Halloween posts in before the big day comes. It seems like there's always something and today's something is pretty worthwhile.
Pay it Forward! October 14, 2011 The idea is to introduce all of us to everyone else. We want this to be easy - meet and follow as many other bloggers as you like. In your post, we would like you to please list, describe, and link to three blogs that you enjoy reading and know that others would enjoy as well. And what’s cool, is this can be part of your regular Friday blogging.
Visit those who’s signed up. Visit those they recommend! If you don’t have time to comment, just follow. Take the weekend to go through the list. You might find some really cool blogs out there, just like you did during the first post of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group or last April during the A to Z Challenge. (Or during any of my odd blogfests. Really, I am a writer and an author! Just a little movie obsessed…)
You can find the sign up list on the blogs of Alex J. Cavanaugh or Matthew MacNish.
Here are some special bloggers that I think you should know about:
On the blogging scene for just a few weeks, but someone whom I have known for many years is Kelly Robinson with her blog Book Dirt. Kelly has been writing for some time and has had her work published in several places. She is a top notch writer as you will see in her blog posts. As a side note, I first got to know Kelly when she played the lead role in a stage production of "Snow White" that I was managing in 1988. In the photo below you will see why I cast her in the part.

E.S. Boston aspires to be the "nicest person in the universe"--at least according to his terms. I don't know about the nicest, but he might be the weirdest. I love reading his blog My Worlds, My Words, My Worries. It's one of the earliest blogs I began following. This blog is intelligent while being totally eccentric. E.S. can make you think--or maybe make you think you are thinking. I think. You will not find many blogs like this one and I think you will enjoy it immensely. Read it and see what you think.
And since I'm now dealing with wacky I might as well include Andrew's Who Wants Taters? which with a name like that you know it's gonna be something different. Andrew is clever and demented with some real comic writing skill. Sometimes he gets a little on the serious side, but that never lasts very long. The extra bonus is that he usually adds a movie review to every post. Where he finds some of these movies is as much of a mystery as why anyone would want to watch these movies. But just in case, we have Andrew's reviews to guide us.
I highly recommend that you visit, read, and follow these blogs. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
UPDATE: I'm doing a last minute guest post on the site of a blogger I discovered in the past week! That post is up now and you can find it at So You Want To Be A Writer? which is the blog of young writer Stephanie Campbell. Stephanie will be guesting on my blog on Wednesday 10/26 with a special post. Now please check my guest spot where I have some news of something different that I will be doing that might be of interest to some of you. And don't forget to follow Stephanie's blog while you're at it. Oh, and don't forget to visit and follow the other blogs I mentioned above. Thanks.
