  1. Hi All! I was looking at the WebRing on my blog and thought it might be useful for the Blog Swap. If each of us can put something like this below as the first or last line of the post on Friday, it would create a ring readers could follow.

    I’m Guest author on Marcus’ Journal (with link)

  2. Hi,

    Eerrrmmm, call me dense, but I still don’t see where the ‘swap’ comes into this? Being given a random topic I understand, but not the swap aspect. Last time it made sense because we set the topics for our partners.

    But anyway, I’m in and ready to go! Kyle wanted me as a partner – and he got me! LOL! I just guess he was hoping it’d be the other way around though!

    BTW, what happened to my topic? It was “the empty boat” – simply a title, to do with whatever the writer wanted. An essay on emptiness for example. Or a poem, or a picture, or thoughts on what it means to get to the other shore and the various ways of getting there. Or something about what prompted the title – that experience of being bumped and seeing how your anger rises against, well, nothing substantial at all, etc etc.

    Oh well, never mind.

    Happt writing everyone!

    Marcus
