Notes from An Alien (the book) is three years and eight months old—and, you can still download a free copy :-)

Counting today’s post, there are 1,091 articles on this blog

I’m going to share a number of new articles from other blogs and sites in just a minute; but, I want to recap the different ways to mine all the information that’s already here

Of course, there’s that handy Search Bar in the upper right—use words or phrases.

Then, there’s the Top Posts & Pages widget, down a little ways in the left side-bar.

And, just below that is the Top Tags widget—the larger the words, the more articles.

Further down the side-bar are an Archives Calendar (select by day of the month) and the Archives Drop-Down List (select by month & year).

Just below those is the BlogRoll (other blogs and sites I highly recommend).

Plus, there are many other Valuable Assets in that side-bar

So, as many of you know, I scan the news and other resources for helpful articles I can share and comment on.

And, since I rarely know what I’ll be blogging about on any given day, the bookmarked-possibilities grow beyond any immediate need

Naturally, I want to share what I’ve found but don’t want my bookmark-closet to become so full I can’t close the door :-)

To relieve some of that pressure, I give you the following links to articles about Reading, Writing, and Publishing:
