(Warning: if you’ve been at this for a while.  Like Cassandra said, I’m new at this.  That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.  Regardless, these people deserve the recognition.)

http://lifein64squarefeet.com/ This dude has some seriously good writing advice.

http://stevenharz.com/ Poetry at its finest.

http://thelettervy.wordpress.com/   Vy’s a thoughtful writer and pronounces her name “V”, like the letter.

Last, but certainly not least…

http://kirstywirsty.wordpress.com/ This girl is one hell of a writer.  No seriously.  She writes from the heart and it’s damn good.  She’s got me reading this lesbian lover series and I’m happily married… to a man.  I know she has significantly more than 200 followers, but I thought I’d drop her name anyway to let you know what you’re missing out on.

So now you know a little something about me.  Are you going to share back?  I hope so.  Congrats to the nominees!!
