First up is this great post by Roni Loren (she has signed a deal with the devil for her soul in exchange for good blog posts, I tell you) questioning whether writers hide behind walls on our blogs.

I've been writing prescriptive writing posts for years and no one cares. Time for silly.

And finally, Blogger is an ass and published this post of mine on The Law of True Love when I had actually scheduled it for next week. Stupid Blogger, that's the second time it's done this. Just for that I'm migrating to Wordpress. While I'm setting that up, please read my poor, mis-published post.
