Keep an eye on it.

There is all sorts of cool shit happening out in the blogosphere.

You only need to log onto your WordPress Reader in the morning to be inundated with endless amounts of wonderful new ideas and initiatives.

I thought I would take a moment to share with you the ones I know about, and hopefully you will do the same.

So here is what I have been keeping an eye on, in between university and publishing new issues of The Paperbook Collective.

It goes without saying that this is the tiniest fraction of the amazing amazingness that is floating around out there in the blogosphere. It would take me a lifetime to try and feature them all.

For more incredible blogs, make sure you check out the contributors pages of
The Paperbook Collective.
There is a comprehensive list of contributors and their blogs, it is well worth spending some time checking them out.

Keep an eye out this afternoon (or morning, or evening, depending on where you are!) for my review of Thomas Steinbeck’s Cabbages and Kings. 

Titus Gatelock’s life, past and present, was an absolute mystery, and not just of the quaint and curious variety, but an enigma that became so tantalizing over the years, that it begged every kind of speculation…

Trust me. You don’t want to miss this.
