The Traveling Meat Salesman

How's that for a title?  This isn't actually about a traveling meat salesman, although he did stop by today.  Sorry.  I'm not terribly interested in buying steak from the back of a pickup truck.  I guided him over to Howard's house.  They like to eat.  A lot.

Anyway, intrigued as you were by the title, stay a moment.  It seems, since joining Rachael Harrie's Writer's Platform Building Crusade (catchy team name, that) I've been meeting some new bloggers to whom I must apologize for my lack of interaction.  It's coming, but you have to be patient with me.  Just ask someone who has been around awhile.

So now I find myself scrolling, quite daunted, through the list of blogs I follow over there on the right.  I'm not one to use google reader or my dashboard very much.  I put everything on the front page so I never have to travel too far.  But it is getting harder to keep track, so I'll be organizing the blogs I follow into categories.  I'm thinking I'll have some favorites.  Keep keeping me interested and you might find yourself at the top of list no one else cares about.

Now I'm starting to think this sounds like a lot of work.  Like writing 6000 words in a day was easy.

Keep stopping by to see if I actually do it.

I know what you mean. It's a big list. I've been prioritizing too.

If you're a pilot, you must have great vision. I have lousy vision.

I love your blog title. Any kind of sarcasm is a must read for me. Now following fellow crusader!

It's not easy getting around to 200+ bloggers and meeting everyone! It's a hasty meet and greet! Hopefully we will get to know each other better over time!

Robyn Campbell said...

Fellow crusader here. I noticed you wrote 6084 words in one sitting. WOW! WOWZIE! That's a good day with the butt in the chair. Congrads. Nice to know you. :)

Great Title! Oh, and I gave you an award on my blog

Traveling meat salesman? Pass. But if you know a traveling falafel salesman you could send my way, I'll be forever in your debt.

Yes, the Crusader thing is overwhelming — I actually clicked "follow" on 200-something Twitter accounts this week — but I'm thinking it will be worth it. ;)

Kari Marie - Welcome, I'm getting around to it. I've been crazy busy with work and learning how to use a new phone. I'm pretty much stopping by to say hello to commenters here.

Michael - My eyes are bad. Can't read the E without glasses bad. But I wear contacts so I won't get beat up.

Raisingmarshmallows - You like my blog? I like that you hand out blog business cards and bumper stickers. Nice to meet you.

Danette - Maybe we should all get together for brunch. I'm I the only one who thinks a Blogfest should take place in a convention center instead of cyberspace?

Robyn - Yeah. 6084 words. It was a long day. I don't recommend it on a consistent basis.

Kate - Wow an old friend! And I thought I'd been forgotten by the academy. Thank you.

Laurajmoss - I think if I saw a traveling falafel salesman I might run the other direction, but I'll see if I can't get his license plate for you. Nice to meet you.

It is daunting, isn't it? Especially with other things that happen in real life, too! I've met a traveling meat salesman too. I agree with you. I'd rather go to the store.

Great meeting you, fellow crusader!

Just give it your best shot. Your first priority is to write your novel. We bloggers will understand. Have a great end of week, Roland

New follower and crusader here. Hello!

Don't feel bad if you can't make it around often. It's impossible to be too frequent with so many blogs. Whenever you can get around is just fine!

Happy writing and crusading.

Hey there, fellow crusader! I know how you feel - it's easy enough linking up with you guys that are in my two groups, but all the 200+ other crusaders? Oh my, it's going to take weeks before I get around to everyone...
