A week before my laptop went belly-up, I had engaged the services of Jason Cushman of Harsh Reality aka A Opinionated Man (yes, the lack of an ‘n’ is intentional, before anyone comments) to increase my followers. In just a few days, I had so many new followers, I didn’t know whether I was coming or going! A thousand thanks, Jason!

Equally, I’d like to thank all my new followers — you’ve made an opinionated lady very happy!

While Jason has recently posted that he’s taking a break from accepting more commissions and may or may not return to it, I hope he does, not least because I need to increase my following on Rogues & Vagabonds!

Please check out his blog. It may not be to everyone’s taste but I’m very fond of his kind of ‘harsh reality’.  He says it like it is.  You might disagree with some of his opinions — I certainly do — but you will be prompted to comment, and that’s no bad thing when it comes to blogs – it’s the essence of conversation and debate, after all. If you’re easily offended, steer clear. After eighteen months, I have yet to take umbrage.

Take care and keep laughing!

Hi all:

I hope you’ll remember last week I brought you a selection of blogs I regularly follow, just in case you might find them of interest. As I said there are many I follow, and this is only a small sample, but I thought I’d bring you a few more in different subjects, to see what  you think.

The very best top 10

I’ve been following this blog for a long time (I think nearly as long as I’ve been blogging) and never ceases to amuse me. The most amazing thing about it is not only the fact that it is well-thought, it usually provides links (if it’s recipes, to how to make the dish, or to the website), and it has an incredibly wide variety of topics, but also that this blog posts daily, and it never runs out…

Here is a last-minute plug for my favourite Christmas design, one that I created this time last year when I was laid up in bed waiting for that dratted hip replacement operation and needed a laugh.  Here it is on a coffee mug.  The mug is a little too big for a stocking filler but makes a good present for someone in your circle.  Mind you, you could always try using a very, very big sock and stuff the mug into the toe!  Then again…
