Mike's Blog Round Up
June 7, 2015

We've had quite a week, what with Duggars, tallywhackers, and Quiverfull oh my! We've covered very serious topics, helped rescue flooded Texas' lost doggies, and had a few laughs along the way. Thanks to the extraordinary writing talent of thirty or so bloggers working at their craft on (mostly) small blogs, we've shown that the Death of the Blogosphere is greatly exaggerated. It's been a pleasure being here, and I look forward to visiting with Crooks and Liars again!

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and at Liberaland. You can follow Tengrain on the electric Twitter machine, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
