The Outcast’s Bloghouse Welcomes… Adam of Write Thoughts

A few weeks ago Jessica at jessicabakkers.com was kind enough to add me to the Outcast Bloghouse, and while this is later than I had originally intended, I want to take a moment to formally say thank you, and recommend that anyone who has not visited jessicabakkers.com should definitely take a moment to browse the substantial library of past posts.

That’s why I’ve decided to create a new category, discussion posts.
When I’m crafting a post on writing, or a book review, I try to come to some kind of conclusion, combining my own opinions with those of others to reach a consensus about the subject.

Discussion posts will be less formal, more open-ended; in an effort to spark a friendly dialogue with others who may have read, seen, or thought about the topic in question.

I’m going to aim for at least one discussion post a month, but we’ll see how things go.
