Blogging Buddies

While I'm still trying to put together a longer post on an actual topic, I thought I'd introduce you to two new blogs of a similar ilk that I found this week.

Marc Tyler Nobleman is a prolific author. Check out his site, Noblemania for titles (my local library has 16 of his books). He's written a book on Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the two Cleveland, Ohio teens who created Superman. He's got a great new post about his search for the home of Joe Shuster where the first Superman drawings were probably done. The search proved difficult because the building no longer exists. It's the kind of research that fascinates me but gives my wife shivers of apathy.

Another brand new blogger is Lucas Hardwick. Lucas lives in Evansville and we've met once through mutual friends. He started blogging last month and posts more in a week than I do in a month. And it's cool stuff, too, like this picture with Gene Hackman! I'm just confused about the name of his blog. On his blog, it's Smells Like Blog, but the web address is "younameitthen". I guess in the web address he's remarking to the people who don't like the name...or maybe there's a contest in the offing. We'll have to check back in and see.

But don't let these other blogs take you away from what's really important...which is my blog.

ACTually...when blogspot asked for a URL "smellslikeblog" was already taken. So after about 3 or 4 more tries of other related names I typed in "younameitthen" half jokingly and it stuck. I'd like to change it, but I don't know if it's possible. Thanks for the mention on your blog!

Yes, thank you, Matt!
