New this year to the blogging scene is Princess Banter. I have some criticism to offer in that I think your posts are a little long. The writing is awesome and of course if you have a story to tell and it takes several paragraphs then what is a blogger to do? I only mention it because your average Joe blog surfer may not have the patience to read through long posts. If you have a regular following, so to speak, and you are not caring about the average Joe blog surfer then your blog is an "A" plus in my book....just pointing out an observation. One thing I would add is a site meter (www.sitemeter.com) to see how many people are stopping by to say hello. Keep up the good work.
