A lot of my blog posts are about writing and reading, with a little web design and a smattering of everyday life thrown into the mix. I also post about TV, movies, gaming and music. I co-run a writing group and may sometimes share discussion topics or flash fiction.

On the subject of friending: go for it, you don't have to ask first. My reading list depends on how much time I have, how much we have in common, and what we have in common. It's not personal if I don't reciprocate. Also, feel free to de-friend at will - no worries or hard feelings.
