Weekend Hangout #9


We’re nine weeks in now. I’d have thought you guys would have made this place hop every weekend. What’s up? C’mon. We all need new readers for our blogs (and, for us writers, for our books). Meeting new people is fun. And it’s not like you’re obligated to hit up more than one person!

Here are the rules…

1. Leave a comment here, on this post. Say hello to me, tell me what you’re reading, what song you’re jamming to… You pick, just say SOMEthing! Leave your link (I can’t get Comment Luv to work regularly) to your blog.

2. Go visit the blog link in the comment above you. Tell them “I’m from West of Mars” and hopefully something nice about their post. Because, you know, the best way to make new friends is to actually read what they write.

3. When three people have left a comment since your last one, you may play again. If no one’s commented for two hours, you may play again. This is the ONLY time you may visit someone other than the person above you.

4. If you’re new here, your comment will go into moderation. I’m going to try to keep on top of that, but do check back to make sure no one missed you. If you were skipped, leave another comment — even if you break the three-person rule.

5. Be nice. Have fun. Make new friends — that’s what this is all about. And, of course, I operate on the Commutative Principle of Friendships, whereby any friend of yours is a friend of mine. Which means anyone and everyone is welcome to play.

6. Game ends Sunday night, even if I post something again in the meantime.

    Hey Susan,
    I am totally loving my revisit to Blondie’s Rapture in celebration of tomorrow. I just finished “Drew in Blue” by J.M. Kelley, a fellow Pennwriter. while I don’t normally read romance, I really enjoyed this one!

    Thanks for inviting me to the hang out!

    Hey Susan,
    Looking forward to getting to read your work. 🙂 Right now writing like a demon and working on the band’s site.

    Hey, I only started a few weeks ago. It takes me a while to get into habits.

    Hi Susan, hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m doing the final edits for my new novel this weekend.
    On my blog this week, you can enter to win a copy of Pixels of Young Mueller by Jerry Schwartz, he’s a musician and the book has a music theme, so I’m sure you’d love it 🙂

    Hi, Susan. Happy weekend. Busy one for me. Finished chores (well, almost), now reviewing potential tenant application for my rental, and hope to write later today. Current reads are No Limit by Fred Anderson, which is fab so far, and Bearing False Witness by Merrill Heath, also good. Getting ready to post reviews on both to my blog once I’m done: http://www.jfhilborne.wordpress.com. Right’O! Back to work. Laters 🙂
