New World Odor has only been online several months and sometimes, working alone, it’s a burden to post interesting items daily. Being functionally unemployed helps, much to my lovely wife Susan’s chagrin. Should I actually land gainful employment, I make no promise regarding New World Odor’s future. Nevertheless, blogging beats much of what I could do with my time if it remains unoccupied by a profit-motivated enterprise.
I get some crackpots, it comes with the territory. But far more often, I hear from people strewn across the country and globe, whose ideas and creativity amuse and amaze. Many are also bloggers and their sites display a rainbow of content, personalities, beliefs and opinions. I’ve found some of my favorite sites this way and have made friends through blogging, even though we’ve never met.
Today a seemingly innocuous comment on my Cuba post led me to a site I want to watch for awhile, which appeals to me for its humor and apparent interest in music.
One of its links is to John Hodgman’s blog, which if you’ve never visited, is worth a look -especially if you need a quick smile. Hodgman is as ever, quirky, smart and hilarious.
There’s little more to say on this than to thank those listed in my favorites and other sections of my blogroll, who appear there because I serendipitously discovered them through their contact with New World Odor. It’s an ongoing benefit that I continue to appreciate.
I’m grateful that you visit, read, comment and link to my site. Many thanks.
