Dear blogging world,
My family is in the middle of a rather complicated, rather chaotic move so, naturally, my time for writing blog posts has been cut back severely. But I don’t want to leave all my followers without posts for several weeks, so I asked some friends if they would consent to being interviewed on my blog, as those posts would be both fun and interesting for all involved. Quite a few agreed, so those interviews will pop up regularly over the next little while. I’ll still be doing my Friday Finds posts whenever I’m able, but all other reviews and such will be on hold until my family and I are settled into our new home. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the interviews!
Hamlette, over at Hamlette’s Soliliquy, is my first interviewee.
