    I am pretty sure my girlfriend will leave me if I add to my challenge :P

    @justinwenger4
    No, thank you for reading them! I greatly appreciate the positive feedback I have got from this challenge :)

    Thanks of a lot revfitz for doing this. It was pretty fantastic.

    I sort of feel that we probably need to more stuff like this more to get some more readers, or to spread them around. Some sort of blog tour to put the word out for all us web serial writers. (Scalzi's Big Idea seems like a nice format to do it with)

    Anyway, here is the much delayed link back from @bluepencil and me.

    Put your legs up and relax for a while. You deserve it.

    @thelonewanderer
    Of course! There seems to be a thirst among authors for content about serials, I am happy to do things like this. I know that the last thing authors want to do is commit to writing articles when their time is already precious, but I do think the feedback I have got demonstrates that there is an opportunity to expand our reach and visibility through traditional blogging.

    Thank you for the write up! I found the imagery in your post to be very entertaining :) I also appreciate the link to my serial.

    @Everyone
    I have been thinking about doing an article on my thoughts on how to execute the best first impression along with my overall thoughts on the importance of hooking a reader. Though I have other commitments, and likely will not be able to post it for some time (probably closer to July) it has been on my mind. Would anyone be interested in seeing something like this? Further, would anyone know of a good place I could possibly guest blog this to? Thanks!

    @Revfitz: I'm not sure when, but I'm probably going to have a personal site up along with my friend some time in the next few months (the person who's coding the site is doing it in his free time). I'm planning on having a whole section dedicated to writing resources and grammar fun. Depending on how many typos this article has (:P), it would probably fit in nicely over there. The site probably won't be done by July, though.

    @revfitz That article idea sounds great!

    I'd be interested!

    The Serial Box blog is probably your best bet. Wildbow runs a blog, but he posts to it rarely so it'd make sense if he didn't want to take guest posts. Sparkler Monthly also has a blog about serials, but the posting schedule is infrequent. Wattpad's blog probably has the most readers, maybe check if they have guest posts?

    Sorry, but I'm lazy and don't feel like finding all these links. If you can't find one of them, let me know and I'll find it.

    An article sounds interesting. As to location, I know "Tuesday Serial" accepts Guest Posts (not really long ones), they have guidelines here:

    Not sure how much traffic they get though. T4nky once guest posted with them (http://forums.webfictionguide.com/topic/tuesday-serial-guest-post). He had his own site as well at some point, I think. (Wattpad has a blog?)

    @unice5656
    That sounds awesome, I would be interested in sending an article your way, let me know when your new site is up and running!

    @nippoten
    Groovy :)

    @Billy Higgins Peery
    Thank you for the list, there are a few there I have not considered. You have done enough work sir, I appreciate it!

    @mathtans
    I was considering them, but they do not respond to their e-mails and I am too afraid of twitter. Thank you for the lead though, I definitely want to get an article on their site.

    Serial blogs. Serials blogs everywhere.

    Get out of the bubble.
