Much to my surprise, A Rain of Frogs has been accepted to the 9rules network. I am very pleased.

At a time when so much has seemed to go wrong, it is a pleasant surprise to have my site selected to join the 9rules ranks.

It’s been a bit of a slow go for me lately, I am usually much more prolific on this site than I have been of recent. Much of this has to do with my mindset, but also because I’ve refrained from writing about most of the crappy things that have been going on.

Not that its all bad – oh no, not at all. Some very good things are going on as well, and at length I will get into these, but not today. Maybe after Christmas.

Today, I would like to thank the 9rules network folks for accepting Rain into the fold. For those new readers coming from 9Rules, welcome. May this site prove worthy of your time.

Thanks J and Josh, I most certainly appreciate your support!
