I would like to take this opportunity to thank those blogs and websites that have recently linked to Rain. I am deeply appreciative of the people who read my sometimes inarticulate thoughts on this website.

So without further discourse, I would like to thank (in no particular order) Ann Torrence, Evolving Times, Broken Kode, ​Avuee, Johnny Beloved (a special note here to mention that it was not just a link, but an actual advertisement for Rain!), Catharsis Crystallised, Daydream Lab, Revista, Boxing Jewels, The Rusted Note, Jules dot ca, and The Google.

This list is by no means complete, and there are dozens out there who deserve my appreciation for making this website so much more than I could have alone. This one’s for you.


Zachary Forrest y Salazar Wednesday October 17, 2007

You’re welcome. It’s much deserved.

Adrian Wednesday October 17, 2007

Thank you Zachary, I appreciate it.

Thanks for the shout out!! However, there’s no “w” at the end of my blog. Just thought I’d point that out to you for a possible edit. But thanks again.

Adrian Wednesday October 17, 2007

Ooops :)

All fixed.

Sumedh Wednesday October 17, 2007

Well, yes, you deserve it!

And many, many thanks for this link back post! :)

Adrian Wednesday October 17, 2007

I am more than happy to, Sumedh!

Ann Thursday October 18, 2007

It’s always a treat to see new post of yours turn up in my feeds. Thanks for the shoutout and some new links to explore. AT

Adrian Thursday October 18, 2007

You’re more than welcome Ann. It’s a pleasure to link to your site.

Daniel Black Friday October 19, 2007

I appreciate the nod. Hopefully, in the relatively near future, I’ll return my links to a more prominent spot, and all three of you can see it!

Adrian Monday October 22, 2007

ROTFL Daniel. Your site is one of my favourites to read.

You should write more long stuff!

Daniel Black Monday October 22, 2007

Ugh. I’m making a horrible mess of your comment thing lately. Anyway, here was the note:

There’s bunches in my head. One of the things that impresses me ‘bout Frogs is that you’ve got stuff goin’ on in your life, too, but still manage to write. I can’t seem to consistently make time to get that stuff outta my head.

Adrian Monday October 22, 2007


Manage to write my ass. I feel like I am letting all three of you regular readers down with my meaningless drivel. I don’t think I’ve written anything truly decent in a long time.

And as for the comment thing, its a mess anyway. I am trying to find a better way to make this work than having to preview first. Even I sometimes screw up and lose my comment.

Edward Mills Saturday October 27, 2007


You are most definitely welcome. The comment you left when I was having one of THOSE weeks was particularly uplifting. Thanks for stopping by and sharing such beautiful, wise words!

And if I may be so bold as to suggest that you might be being a bit hard on yourself. Even if your writing is meaningless drivel, it’s beautifully written meaningless drivel! ;)

Adrian Monday October 29, 2007

Everyone keeps telling me not to be too hard on myself.

I will just keep doing my thing, being me.

It’s all I can really hope for, I think :)

Commenting has ended for this post, but I'd still love to hear from you.
