Paying it Forward

Matthew McNish and Alex Cavanough had this great idea for a blog fest.

Paying it forward.

Technically its suppose to be on Friday, October 14 but since I work tomorrow I won't be able to post anything in the morning. Combine that with the fact that my schedule thing isn't working means I'm posting this late Thursday night.

In Alex's words, 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.

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.

Plus we're to feature three blogs that we think other people should follow.

The first person I think you should follow is Robyn Campbell. She is the most positive person I've met through blogging. She always has a kind word for everyone and her comments always leave me smiling.

The second person I think you should follow is Heidi Willis. She is a fantastic writer and photographer. She's doing her MFA and always has great advice about what's she's learned.

The third person I think you should follow is Laura Pauling because she has great advice on how to structure your story and I've learned so much from reading her blog.

Have fun looking at over 200 blogs. It might take a while but I'm going to try and get through all of them before Monday.

Have a great weekend.
