And being back is half the battle …

WHEW! I’m finally back from the UK. ‘Being’ isn’t a bother, but the travel time is. Getting up at 4.30am for the 4 hour ride between Devon and London, then the 12+ hours in the air, each both ways, is tiring. I’m shagged. Totally.

It’s great to be back in sunny WARM Bangkok. Not that it wasn’t enjoyable visiting friends and relatives and eating way too much then way too much again. But, after almost two weeks of the fog and drizzle and cold of Devon, I’m ready for warm on an empty stomach.

After sleeping most of yesterday away, this morning I was wondering how to relax into a DWB post before posting my end-of-the-year-that-was. I checked 9rules to see if their final list was ready to share. They’ve been working hard to get to the bottom of the pile, but nope, it’s not. This round was just too huge. I did discover Revenge of the ‘Z-Lister’ from my bloglines, a nice exchange.

Liz from Successful Blog authors a D-Z List at The Blogging Times so I imagine she’s also quite chuffed to get a nice package of lists pre-prepared.

The list is part of a meme, so here’s the deal:
(I’ve edited the explanation from Mack Collier’s blog)
Simply cut and paste the ENTIRE list below to a post on your blog and add blogs of your own (not those on your entire 300+ bloglines, just your gravy-of-the-month). That’s it. You’ll get a ton of happy bloggers suddenly coming to YOUR blog to thank you, you’ll get a ton of great new blogs to read, you’ll likely get a ton of links yourself, but most of all, you’ll feel good about making a whole lot of other bloggers feel good about themselves.

DWB is all about giving link love so the idea fits in that sense. Also, a number are discussing marketing, advertising, design, business, etc, so they are right down DWB’s target alley. Some are are already on DWB, but by briefly clicking around I’ve discovered Penina’s blog Work, in Plain English, which is a fit for a project I’m working on.

Btw – there are a number of blogs participating so I’ve snatched the alphabetised list from Word Sell to add to.

My (few) additions are:
A Girl’s Guide to Managing Projects
hypocritical
Inside the Marketing Mind
More than a living
PigWisdom.com
Roger C. Parker Design to Sell Blog
russell davies
