Well, well, well, my blog has been place in a book. And a “best of” book too. I’m stunned! The book, Best of Blogs also has a companion website, if you want to check it out. If you find the book (I found it at a bookstore, but according to what I read online it’s actually not to be on shelves yet. Hmmm), I’m listed in the Hobby chapter, under Classical Music and then Performers. And okay, I’ll admit that I’m slow; it took me a bit of time to realize “hobby” was probably for the blog, not for the career. (We might be paid like it’s a hobby, but it really is my career!) :-)

Anyhoo, I am a bit shocked, and quite flattered. I’m with some very fine company as well. Drew McManus’s Adaptistration, a Violinists’ blog and Jeremy Denk’s “Think Denk”. (Oh for Pete’s sake! I only NOW got the joke. Think Denk. Duh. See how slow I am?) Under Enthusiasts you’ll find Andante.com, Lisa Hirsch’s Iron Tongue of Midnight, Magnificat Website, Sarah Nobel’s Prima la musica, poi le parole: opera blog, along with Greg Sandow and Vilane Fille.

I visit nearly all these blogs daily. You’ll see links to most on the right of my home page.

It’s quite encouraging to know that Classical Music even had a category. Woo hoo!
