Follow Friday: Part Time Monster

I’m starting a new weekly post, Follow Friday, in which I share a blog that I personally subscribe to and I want to recommend to you!

A.M. Roundup

I’m going to start doing a few of these, and not on any particular schedule. They’ll be three to five links to other blogs. Sometimes they’ll be themed. This one is a random selection from blogs I visit frequently.

Part Time Monster contributor Lyn has one of the best-illustrated award acceptance posts I’ve seen yet at Lazy Lady, and a few Awesome Blog Content and Sunshine nominations.

Therefore I Geek discusses movies and t.v. shows that have influenced them.

OpinionatedMan has some opinionated thoughts on the blogger-audience relationship.
