Ohhhhh, who are the people in your neighborhood?
Remember when you first started blogging and how excited you were when the first couple of people sent you a friend request via BlogCatalog? Then their faces appeared on your followers widget? As a newbie, you are elated that someone out there actually likes what you are doing, you feel validated. For me, these are the people I remember vividly.
Well, today's featured neighbor has been stalking me from the very beginning. I'd like to introduce you all to RedRaider (aka Don) over at Beyond Left Field. Not only has Don been there since I entered the blogosphere, but he was also the first to ever review my blog in his feature, a pimp post for discerning taste, The Sunday Suck-Up Times. After reading his glowing review of The Screaming Me-Me, I was thrilled. I knew then I had arrived!
Beyond Left Field is a southern man's daily rant. Don's sardonic humor and writing style truly draw the reader in. Believe you me, he holds nothing back. It's raw, it's engaging and downright funny. Being from the south myself, visiting with Don each day is like a big dose of down home. I totally relate and I'm sure you will too.
When you visit Beyond Left Field today you'll notice his motto, "I only do that which I do best which is why I do very little." Don't you believe it. Don also wears the hat of administrator over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com and has been my knight in shining armor a couple of times when I've gotten into technical trouble. Ah, I found his soft spot, the southern gentleman emerges when there's a damsel in distress.
I'm know many of you already follow Don, but for those of you who have never visited, please click on over and give him a great big howdy!
