The Soul of a Blogger

You know you've gone over the edge with blogging when you surf other blogs and post snide comments about them. Actually, I'm not being snide. I'm being sympathetic about this. I would be really embarrassed if this happened here. Actually, it may have for all I know.

By "this" I refer to a site called bookmunch making an embarrassing error in a title. It did a review of How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague and spelled Jane's name Yolden.

How would I feel if some blogger picked up on my spelling error? Actually, if any other blogger noticed me at all, I'd probably be delighted.

And if you think I'm being familiar by referring to Ms. Yolen as Jane, well, I've almost met her. I've heard her speak at conferences twice, and at one of them I asked her a question. Which she answered. We interacted. She can call me Gail, if she'd like.
