Is it just me, or have my contacts disappeared from Gmail? I can't find a link anywhere.

On finding cross-cultural connections in our reading (and important points in the comments about how those connections should be as accurate as possible). http://www.cbcdiversity.com/2012/04/cross-cultural-connections-in-our.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Looking for diversity in your reading? I've made book recommendation lists on Pinterest sorted by genre and reading level, which I've found is more visual and easier to keep up to date than on my blog. http://pinterest.com/stacylwhitman/

We're talking about covers over at The Open Book (the Lee & Low blog), and I've also done a prequel talking about my own cover-brainstorming process. Start here: http://www.stacylwhitman.com/2012/03/09/how-a-book-gets-a-cover-the-prequel/, then go here: http://blog.leeandlow.com/2012/03/07/design-101-how-a-book-cover-gets-made, and then here: http://blog.leeandlow.com/2012/03/14/design-101-how-a-book-cover-gets-made-part-ii/

In the 4 or 5 months since I've been on G+, has there been any further integration of a posting tool like Tweetdeck to allow people like me to streamline these things? Or perhaps a way to mirror my blog here, which might be more appropriate? I figured it'd be worth asking, since I do want to get involved here--and there are so many people on here who aren't necessarily on FB or Twitter--but as the last few months can attest, I also don't need yet another place to have to visit and keep up with on a regular basis. It's easier to manage if I can streamline it all in one place.

Okay, I'll bite. Is there a Stacy Club y'all want me to join or something? A Conspiracy of Stacys? Because in the last 2 days, a total of 7 Stacy/Staceys have added me here. Did each of them individually suddenly decide they wanted to follow a bunch of Stacys? Did they each individually find solidarity with me because of our common name? Inquiring minds want to know.

Well, this is Tildrum, not Mogget, but it's the same principle. I love when the weather gets cold enough that the cats want to sit on my lap again. Or, well, drape themselves across my lap.
