Please leave comments about any profiles that you would like to see recognised, even if it's your own. I love comments.


Note: Due to the unexpected positive response to this first list of firsts, I have begun compiling a second list of firsts. Some of you have made suggestions and most, if not all, of these will be included. Who knows? Maybe some day I will publish a first list of seconds.

Note on the note: I'm a rather busy person. I have two jobs and six blogs. I'm also trying my hand at microtonal composition and preparing some music for release. I plan on frequently recognising bloggers and content, but have to acknowledge that these mentions will always be largely the result of somewhat random processes, and will likely exhibit my personal biases. Please don't be affended if you have an excellent profile or content that isn't mentioned. I have plans for the future that will also allow others to recognise bloggers and content from the directory.

Hi Daniel - thanks for fixing the link. No need to apologise either. Turns out Blogspot has a bug that will do that - randomly throws details of one blog you have registered across to others that you have. Bit of a pain and easy to miss. Glad you like the Pickled Eel name - there is a story in that and it involves a massive hangover!! And yes there were eels in the bottom of the jar - along with a other unknown beasties.

That fancy mark in Billé is called an accent ague. I have one in my name too.
