Somebody will probably be offended by this … but as an unrepentant penophile, I appreciate the penography you publish. 😉 Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the mention, I am really happy your blog is gaining popularity. You put out very useful reviews and information in your articles. And sometimes I’ve discovered some really neat things from referrals off of your blog.
Thanks for the mention under top commenters, it is appreciated.
The link for my blog doesn’t seem to be working. It directs to a URL that is not valid I assume. The URL is (http://nibandlens.wordpress.com)
And my blog is nowhere as nice as yours, and I make updates to it occasionally when I can find some free. I’m very new to the blogosphere, I started blogging maybe a few months ago.
Thank you for the kind words!
I updated the url, it works now, sorry about that!
Glad you were able to find out about some good stuff, and best of luck to you in the future with your site.
I recently discovered this site and I enjoy dropping in to see the latest. I especially enjoy the ‘weekly loadout’ posts.
*Blush* Why thank you so much for the mention. You’re too kind 🙂 You already know I’m a huge fan!!
Crikey, didn’t expect to see my name up there 🙂
Keep up the excellent work Ed, always look forward to your posts popping up in my feeds.
