Here's a refreshing type blog brought to us by who else? Elizabeth Bates. It's a blog that uses alot of conversational story telling, almost giving it a feel of a character from a series like "Sex In The City", where you can here the characters thoughts, except in this case you are reading them. Very well done and the posts keep your interest. I'd add a site meter (www.sitemeter.com) to see who is stopping by and I'd keep posting on a more regular basis because you have the potential for a great blog here. Keep up the good work.
