3-28-2008 Friday Round-Up

*You might have noticed I added two columns to my website and a few new buttons.  Previously, I did not have much advertising on my blog and now, I am really trying to make a bit more of a living blogging.  Rough, I know…but I want to be able to at least have an excuse for why I spend all day writing (until hopefully, hopefully, hopefully, I can publish another book).  So, sorry for the advertisements, I hope they do not annoy my readers too much, if you feel so inclined, buy me a cup of coffee through the donate button (it will help me write better) or click around on some of the flashy, shiny banners.

See my Segment on CBS 4!
