Most people who read Courting know Doug.
I have known him since early this past year. A long time in the blogosphere world; and never knew this story.
His more popular blog is Waking Ambrose; it is a re-telling of Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary for our times.
Doug Drones On is his weekend blog. You can either listen to or read Doug’s own stories about his life. Unlike me he neither whines or talks about his great qualities.
Doug inspires great loyalty from the growing number of people who read his blogs. He claims that I have mentored him, yet he has taught me how blogging can truly become a community of people with disparate interests, but all love words.
Do admit to a slight jealousy over how well he moderates his comments. I don’t moderate mine because I fear if I do nobody would ever read Courting again.
Actually I fear that all the time. I love blogging and meeting people like Doug is a big part of the reason why. Doug truly is very modest and he will probably hate me for doing this. But, uh, the devil made me do this?
