You look ever so like yourself in Danish, Peter! *laughing* I thought his blog was yours in Danish! Really -- they're blog doubles! Wonderful tips btw!

I remembered, you were one of the first to comment when I first started blogging in May/June
2008. On my short story, "The Telephone Number." My goodness, where has this past year gone?!

btw, Marge is a die-hard Yankees fan, don't you know? My alter ego, so to speak. :))

Peter, you are a smashing blogger in Danish :D
I have not only had several comments, I have also had more visitors in 24 hours than ever before: 74 (my ´old´ record was 65).

Thanks a lot - and I won´t promise I will never ask you again.

Tak!

I thought it was a nice touch to have a Yankees fan living in Queens, just as I would have had you had a Mets fan living in the South Bronx.

You have may have noticed that my guest post is part of series on DJ's Krimiblog about improving one’s blog. She also brings in guest bloggers on a variety of subjects. Both these efforts, as well her organization of her blog into various themes (blog improvement, “femkrimis” and “machokrimis,” reviews, and so on) make for refreshingly varied reading.

Dorte H, I won't rule out using your blog as an example of how to organize a site.

Thought you might enjoy this RTE report about the final round of the Masters:

History does not augur well for a Tiger Woods comeback from seven behind as he has never won a major without at least holding a share of the lead entering into the final day. His pairing alongside Phil Mickelson, with whom he has zero in common, will probably mitigate against either of them shooting the round in the mid-sixties, which is probably what they each need to do to have a chance.

Illiteracy reigns. Humiliate them publicly, I say.

Oh, that would please me no end :D

Peter, your Danish looked pretty impressive. You didn't cheat, did you?

Peter, the advice you give on Dorte's blog is, I think, of the first water and spot on. Well done! My own comments on crime fiction blogs have dwindled in number markedly, and the reason for that is FriendFeed. DBB is one of the few where there are still sustained and substantive discussions on the blog itself, bless you. The sort of thing that now happens is that a post appears, a comment of some substance follows, but a response to that, if any, appears on FF, where comments usually consist of but a line or two. It is no good replying to that on the blog, and the customary one-liner on FF will not fit the bill. Then, of course, another comment, unrelated to the first, or related to the first but unaware of one-liner on FF, appears on the blog...Phew! And so, the whole thing, split between blog and FF, peters out. After I encountered this dilemma a few times, I simply gave up except wiht regard to a very few venues where a sustained and substantive discussion of meatier questions is still possible on the blog itself. This is all very unfortunate, I think, for I notice also that 'comments' on FF -- they are, I think, more like twitterings, though I'm not well-acquainted with Twitter -- tend to be exchanged among bloggers, with a notable lack of non-blogging gremlins such as myself. Anyway, I may very well be alone in finding this a problem, but I am grateful you continue along your chosen path.

Not that there's any great chance I'll become well organized any time soon, Dorte, but if I do, I'll know where to look for inspiration.

I certainly did not cheat. A genuine Dane translated my post.

Thanks for the kind words, Philip. FriendFeed does indeed sound like Twitter, which is hardly conducive to sustained and substantive discussion and not the sort of thing I want.

I signed up for Twitter only after someone told me about a feature that lets my blog comments, or rather short abstracts of and links to them, be uploaded automatically as twitterings.
