    Now that I’m back to earth, I wanted to point out that you messed up your headline – it should read “Top 11 blogs…” and it should include Writing White Papers.

    Thank you Mike for leaving this note at my blog:
    “I cannot read your language, but it appears you have said some good things about my blog based on your picture.”

    From this top 10, in picked my personal tip 4 and added the advice to include the RSS of these 4 in the RSS reader. Also taking into account the differences in writing styles, especially promotional writings, between the US/UK and Europe. And you can see from the picture I did include your site in my tips.

    Rgds,
    Erno

    I am hard at work selling my book “Runaway Grampa” the travel memoir of my life after the death of my wife. It was published by RDR Books but I’m responsible for selling it. I’m trying to reach beyond the Michigan county where I live and publish a Good News column in our local weekly. Mention of my book can be found under the title on Google and Yahoo based on an item in my Northwestern alumn magazine. Id welcome any help you or your readers could provide. thanks much, chuck Mason
