Look, see. Lita is keeping up with this finally. Though I dare say it might be like this for the rest of the year. We shall see. But HERE WE ARE for a very special end of monthly post – a – rama.
For the last 2 post – a – ramas I tried to attempt making them huge ones but then I hadn’t read enough posts or kept up. BUT… this time finally it’s a big whooper of content I’ve found. This will be my biggest Friday feature to date but like I said I’d been meaning to make a big one for ages. I’d love go back to doing this weekly but the monthly schedule works for me now better.
Balancing all my hobbies this year I’ve somehow managed to maintain which is mind bottling to me, I’m happy to report. Honestly sure this blog was going to die like it did at the end of last year but you can always expect I have things in the works for the year. Thousands of posts I have yet to write to come, so it’s a thousand surprises. But time to put on display all the posts I’ve come across in February and March, hope you guys enjoy the new material to read. !!

Should You Watch Boogiepop & Others? By Jenn (Hellzone Blog) Jenn always writes the most humorous posts that I feel is close to my own style of blogging. We like to be fun and funny and her argument for you to watch the new Boogie pop is a convincing one. Jenn does a great job highlighting how the series doesn’t follow a particular pattern in-fact it doesn’t care. It’s going to where it wants and it’s sounds like a blast the way Jenn describes.
