If you haven't heard of Gary Hoover, you will soon. He's a terrifically funny author with a great blog out, called Land of Nod. Now - here's the thing - he just started the blogspot and he already has thirty-eight followers. As a wizened old blogger (been writing this for three months, now, which gives me the right to wave a cane at you and shout, "Get off the lawn!") I can tell you that it is really hard to get that many followers.
And to do so in a week is insane. This guy has mad skills. Check out my brother in arms / pens and while you're at it, check out his book: Land of Nod: The Artifact
And as for you, Gary - Come on down and pick up your Blog on Fire award!
