I'd love to hear anyone else's posts on eavesdropping on public coversations. It's my favourite thing to do (I hardly notice myself doing it now, but my partner sure does!).

From now on, I'm going to call you Santa. ;) This list is Christmas in October for me! I've been putting off revamping my blog because I didn't know what to write about. Now, I have a great list to work from that I'm sure will jog some creative ideas of my own. =) Thanks for the Monday morning present!

Love, Peace, and Freshly Squozen Creative juice,

Thanks for the feedback, Lefa. I'd love to read a post on eavesdropping too! Any takers out there?

Annette, I like the thought of being called Santa, but it reminds me that the holidays are just around the corner! It's time to take out my red elf hat.

Make sure to leave us a link to your new blogs here, so we can enjoy them, too!

Peace & Love back at you!

I agree with Annette! I've just started my web site and blog, and right now I'm writing mostly about the process of getting my book published, etc., but I will need new ideas soon. What few readers I have will be put off by too much, "finished proofing galley.." and the like every day! My next entry actually mentions WOW, but my web master is in Denmark and probably won't get it posted until tomorrow. ;-)

What a great list. I'm saving this one!
