Petrona on the normblog

I think I can retire now and go to heaven.  Can blogging get any better than this? I’ve had book reviews published in the Philadelphia Inquirer (thanks to Sir Galahad of the Blogosphere, aka Frank Wilson) and on Eurocrime; I’ve made some wonderful friends; and now I have been profiled by Norman Geras on his normblog.  And what’s more, I come over as relatively sane and sensible. Go and have a look and see who I’d invite to dinner and other more serious things.

I shall carry on blogging , because I like it.  But honestly, I might just as well stop here: my cup runneth over. It is true to say that, apart from my husband and children, I’ve never experienced such positive regard; stimulating interactions; friendliness ; and thoughtful exchange of ideas, since the past year or so of blogging. Call it Friday evening sentiment, call it what you will, I feel, er…..happy. (Strange sensation.)

  1. Maxine, what a lovely interview. I feel I know you even better, having read it. And I’ll bet I can guess who recommended _The Art of Happiness_ (at any rate, I know someone who extols that book quite highly!).
    I didn’t read any blogs until a few months ago, and I now I look at three every day: Yours, Frank Wilson’s, and Bryan Appleyard’s. You give as good as you get, mon amie: This is a cool place to hang out and read interesting stuff.

  2. Great interview, Maxine. I love reading these inteviews – in a way you get to know a person more than if you met them in real life.

  3. A very interesting interview, Maxine. it really is strange that we seem to know more about bloggers that we have met on the web, than we do about our next door neighbours.
    I had never visited “normblog” before, but I see Norman Geras has published books on Marx and cricket so I think I will be become a regular!
