I discovered the Black Box yesterday and immediately became riveted to it. My fiance already has expressed worry about my compulsion to the press the "decide" button. It's a good thing that "Black Box Anonymous" doesn't exist (at least not yet!), or I think my fiance would be dragging me off to meetings. And this within 24 hours of discovering the Black Box!
It is heaps of fun, though. I'm particularly intrigued by the consistent patterns emerging in the results that the Black Box produces. With only one possible exception, all of the "mystery blogs" to which I've been directed (and there have been many!) are penned by people who have a deep appreciation for the written word -- everyone is a professional writer, an aspiring writer, or has a "favorite book" list that is a mile long. Also interesting is that almost all the blogs I've discovered through the Black Box are written by Brits, and the remainder are written by women who live in Africa and who have a real talent for painting with words. On top of that, it appears that several of the bloggers I've discovered through the Black Box were commenting on one another's blogs even before the Black Box made waves. Wow! I think I've found some new "blog kin!"
For those of you who got here by way of the Black Box, welcome, I'm glad you're here! My blog is less than month old and I could use some more readers! If you have the time and inclination, by all means let me know that you stopped by.
A Fond Farewell - Hear ye, hear ye, the end is here. I mean, the end of the Gold Puppy blog. I've been thinking about it for awhile now, wondering what in the hell I'm do...
