Over the Labor Day weekend I spent  lot of time reading some blogs I found on the Entrecard.com network. Entrecard.com is a bloggers network. They provide a system for finding and introducing bloggers to one another. Members of Entrecard, such as myself, have to add a “widget” to their blog that indicates they are a member. The widget also allows members to advertise other member blogs. You can see the widget at the top right of every page on Skylarking.




One of the blogs I found on Entrecard was titled Splinters written by a blogger who calls herself Suriel. As far as I can tell, Suriel lives in Arizona with her husband. They’re musicians in a band called Reliquary. Suriel also plays with a band called Paris Burning. She plays “bass guitar, keyboards, and sometimes percussion”.

One of the things I like about Splinters is the graphics.  She has a great anime style ad for her blog (shown at right) along with a great photo of her playing bass onstage.

Of course, I enjoy Suriel’s writing, sense of humor, and the way she plays with words. Lately she had been writing about her move to a new home which had scorpions in it, but fortunately they were “killinated”. She’s also been keeping an eye on Gustav which has come very close to members of her family.

She’s been blogging since 1998 about her daily life, food, songwriting, music, photography, cooking, her cats, and more. Suriel writes in her blog at least once a week, and I’ve found myself checking in at least once a day to see what’s new, and read some of the older posts as well. Feel free to take a look.

I’ll be writing about more blogs I found as the week goes on.

  1. Hi Robert,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog – your comment to set up a facebook page just for my blog is great. I know that people do that but I was not sure what to include there. Oh, and I am a L.I. girl at heart.

    BTW, in my entrecard travels I have stopped by Splinters site too and I agree with your review.

  2. Hi, Renee, thanks for the reply. Let me know when you get your Facebook page setup, and I’ll check it out. I still have to link mine in, too.

    Splinters is a great blog. Suriel sent me a note through Entrecard today, too.

    I like your blog and shop, too. First time I saw “Cutie Booty Cakes” I was like, “Uh oh, adult content.” But I see it’s a actually a very creative gift for parents with newborn babes. I’ll have to write an article about that, too. Or perhaps you’d like to be a guest blogger here, and write about it yourself? Let me know.

    Regards, and thanks again,
