A Weird Request

I'd like to interrupt this blog for a bit of marketing selfishness...

So I'm (finally) putting together a media kit for myself, and one of the pages I want to add is for the blog. I have testimonial blurbs for everything else, and I'd like to be consistent. Anyone willing to give me a quote I can add to the kit about the blog? Feel free to add your own blog name or book (if you're an author) if you'd like. I'll add it to the sig, like --Jane Doe, Booklovers blog or --Jane Doe, author of Eek! Zombies!

You can either put it in the comments, or email me if you prefer: janice (at) janicehardy (dot) com.

Thanks guys!

We now return you to the blog, already in progress.
