A Couple More For The Blogroll...

Occasionally, I like to check to see who is linking to me. Not the general, included-in-the-blogroll links, (although they are important) but actual links in posts, which means that something I've posted has struck a chord with another person.

Google Blog Search is the best way to check that out, either by typing in the full URL of the blog (to find links, although this often just throws up blogs which have you on the blogroll) or by typing in the name of the blog, to find mentions "in passing", or mentions by people who, perhaps, are unfamiliar with how to put links in blog post texts...

Either way, it's rather fun!

It sometimes reveals interesting results: for example, today, I have discovered two blogs for addition to my blogroll...

A Reluctant Sinner came up on the radar with a review of English Catholic Heroines; he seemed to enjoy the book, which was encouraging, and further exploration of his blog led me to a very interesting exposé of so-called modern paganism.

Checking out the blogs he follows (I'm not one of them, sadly) I discovered The Sequere Me Blog, by Simon-Peter... I have a vague feeling I've come across him before, but he wasn't on my blogroll (maybe he'd been edited out - he posts a little infrequently) and there didn't appear to be a Profile for me to check out... but I enjoyed the posts I read, so back he goes...

How can one not link to a blog that may post a request for sympathy, shows cat photos on Mondays, but then delves into a very serious issue (as today) regarding Choosing Bishops?

This is THE place to be, Mac!

Hey I visit your Blog every day even though I haven't signed on as a follower. It's great, varied, instructive and very helpful to me.

Thanx. Keep up the good work.

God bless.

Victor, you are kind, thank you!

Thank you for mentioning my blog... I often pop in to read yours, too, but hadn't got round to adding you to the "blogs I follow" section - something which has now been corrected!

Keep up the good work!

God bless...
