Miss me? Like one day I don't blog and the world comes to a screeching halt? Oh well, a girl can dream, right? When I'm not blogging, I'm writing, except when I'm washing dishes and doing laundry and cleaning the bathroom and mowing the lawn. Y'know, all those glamorous activities that writers do. Actually, I write very little ... okay, almost nothing ... when I'm blogging, which is why I needed to take a break yesterday.
If I were really serious about writing I'd put blogging on hold ... indefinitely. But blogging is disease like alcoholism. Someone could make a good living by conducting a 12-step AA-type program for recovering bloggers.
Hello, my name is Kitty and I'm a blogger.
By 6:00a.m. I'm surfing online newspapers, magazines and other sites. I read everything with a blogger's eye, accumulating blog fodder as I go aloong. Some days I tell myself, "Today I will NOT post. I will surf then write." I have more luck resisting chocolate. (Btw, I've had chocolate from all around the world and Hershey's is the best, hands down. The only other one which came close was some chocolate from Scotland.) By 10:00a.m. I usually have a decent INTERBLOGATORY TRAVELS list to post at LifelikePundits plus a few choice possibilities for KittyLitter.
Honestly, though, I really do need to put more time in my writing, so if I'm not here one day, or two, don't worry. I'll return. After all, I am a blogger, so byte me :)
8 BEHIND THE BLOG: "Jolie in NYC" is Nadine Haobsh, a 24-year-old associate beauty editor at Ladies' Home Journal, who hoped someday to parlay the site into a book deal, yet was genuinely surprised at how angry her bosses were when she was unmasked.
[B]y yesterday evening, the blog had been shut down. And even before that, the more inflammatory entries had been removed. "
BreakupBabe blogger got her book deal the write way.

8 Color me blue: There’s a navy blue folder on top. The editor's fingers touch her lips to hide a tiny gasp. It’s a celebrity book of some sort! Who can tell? The cover letter has three lines. All it says is the celebrity’s name. There’s no title! There’s barely any material inside. But this celebrity is finally ready to tell everything about something, and if I buy it, I’ll get to meet that celebrity! I may get to go to the celebrity’s house and end up on Page Six! I may get to go backstage at Letterman or sit in the front row at Oprah while my résumé builder… I mean, celebrity author… tells the world about the book I acquired!
