Famous by Association

Congrats to Jen Robinson over at Jen Robinson's Book Page! Her blog got mentioned in Melissa P. McNamara's column over at CBS in her weekly Blogophile Column (which is something I was unfamiliar with and may start reading).

She was mentioned in relation to the Fib fad started by Gregory K over at Gotta Book. We have posted previously on Fibs here.

McNamara's article talks about how something that began on blogs, was picked up by other blogs and then picked up by the New York Times (as we previously reported HERE - go Greg!). Jen's blog comes in to play with her comment on the Fib phenomenon HERE. Well done!

In other news (and briefly, because I am taking the day off work to do some work on my Masters' Research Paper), Fuse 8 has two fun posts - one on a contest of sorts where you are required to post about a fly on the wall and one HERE updating us on Winnie the Pooh's stardom.

The UNESCO Blog points out that April 23 is World Book and Copyright Day.

And finally, Jen Robinson has a link to another new blog with possibilities called Dear Time.

Thanks, Louise! I appreciate your support / encouragement. The best thing for me about this whole blog phenomenon is definitely the feeling of community. The other people who blog about kids lit are happy for Greg's fib fame, and my tiny little brush with fame, and so on. It's really heartwarming.

Have a great weekend! Jen
