Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22384 – 835:
Here’s the haps:
I haven’t done one of these for quite a long time but for a while there, life had been getting in the way of blogging on a regular schedule. For me, a schedule is really important. Plus I have been working on a writing project and am starting to take an online class for web development. But the scheduling is a big deal for me. If I don’t commit to posting at least once a day I wind up putting it off and putting it off. As a matter of fact, I have every intention of starting a Procrastinator’s Club in the future sometime.
But it is my current intent to go back to one of the more popular features I have had in the past where I share with you a blog I have discovered that I think is worth my time to follow and is, in my opinion, worth sharing with the highly intelligent audience that follows this blog. I would like to present you the blog: Haoyan Do – Casual Notes Along The Margin. This blog has been interesting to me because I am not particularly knowledgeable about Asian culture or being a non-native English speaker trying to maneuver the pitfalls of our very idiomatic and often inexplicable language. But this blog is not simply about those things. This blog also has fictional stories and poems that are based on real-life characters and experiences as well as her discoveries of new words and their uses. She is very kind and thoughtful and down-to-earth. And I cannot think of a post of hers that I have read which would require anything worse than a “G” or “PG” rating.
As you know, my award does not require any back-links or answering a bunch of questions or finding a bunch of other bloggers to tag. She can put it in a post or place it on her blog, link to me if she wants, or do nothing whatsoever with it. but I am offering, from Herb’s Blog, the “Herb likes this blog and would like to have coffee with this blogger sometime,” award to the interesting, intelligent, sometimes whimsical Blog, Haoyan Do at Casual Notes Along The Margin.
