Philipp Lenssen's Blog Surprise

A while back I blogged about Philipp Lenssen's Forty Faces: Who just blogged? and the gracious gentleman popped over here to answer a question (see the comments on this post). Now Philipp has again snagged my attention by coming up with a new game for bloggers: The Blog Surprise.

The objective is to surprise a blogger who just posted their very first blog post ever... by welcoming that blogger to the blogosphere, showering them with attention, and leaving lots of comments.

Sounds like a fun game and a good way to make some new blog friends. So if anyone knows of a new blog about books or writing, please comment here or shoot me an e-mail and I'll check it out. Then we'll organize a surprise party and go make somebody's day.

I'm willing to bend a little, but in my mind, a "brand new" blog would be one that has come into existence within the past month.



UPDATE, 12:48 p.m.

Almost as soon as I posted this, Hornblower left a comment pointing out a blog that was begun on July 31. So...

Let's throw a surprise party for writer and brand-new blogger Kate Austin. Just click over to her place and leave a comment welcoming her to the blogisphere.

Does anybody else want to nominate a new writing or book-blogger for a surprise party?

Okay, Hornblower, we'll give Kate a party. (I've just updated my post.) Many thanks for the tip.

Scribe, thank you so much for reading and commenting.
