The Parade is On

OK folks, great response thus far to the Showcase!
Great response on the new-blogs side, that is: about 40 entries already for this week. As I’ve noted at the top of the Showcase itself, I strongly recommend new bloggers consider waiting for next week’s contest at this point; the competition is going to be a bit fierce this week, and I suspect things will lighten up a bit next week.
But now the other side of the equation needs to come into play: y’all got to spend a little time checking these new kids out, and cast a few link-love votes! So get to it!
