Ah, good steamfolk, another post the blog!

Indeed, it's not much to vent steam about; merely a chance to pose the opportunity for mirth and merriment, were any dear reader at hand with which to spar. Instead, I suspect the storm caressing the inlets and shores of the eastern coastline, with all attendant catastrophes such as the lack of steam, may have thwarted the masses from joining us in this medium. It's possible, don't you agree?

 

Being in an all-too fair clime, here where I have landed in my interdimensional voyaging, I have no expectation of rain nor wind but solely the blazing of sunlight. Thankful am I that Earth is still blessed with only one star. So, having no fuss from the weather gods, I ventured out into this city, having coin in my pockets and a full take of steamfodder, and made my way to a shoppe containing grand shelving of literature.

 

Twas an amazing site to behold so much made from the skin and bones of your trees. Granted, it is the most plentiful building material. Nevertheless, I had in my mind the goal of procuring such a literature aligning with the theme of steampunk societies. Indeed, after much perusing, I spied such a volume and snatched it form the shelf with such speed that none around me even noticed my movement. This volume, titled "Steampunk" and authored by Mr. Jay Strongman, is a grand compendium of steampunk marginalia, from its early historical origins through to its various sub-categories and variations throughout art and literature. It seems a fascinating resource!

 

Having no suitable storm to deter me from connecting via this communicator device, I sought only to mention this book in the event any person here perusing might be so compelled to search for it for their own business. I, however, shall enjoy the remainder of this vacation period learning what I can from said volume. Then, with my muse's fire stoked, I shall endeavor to write on! 

 

Good evening and may you all partake of much frivolity through the remainder of your weekend!

I am absolutely aghast!

I see the flaw in my once-perfect post: the omission of a very important word: "to" in the initial line of text. Indeed, that first sentence should read (no doubt the good steamers of this fine establishment managed with little effort to decode the meaning, nevertheless) thus:

"Ah, good steamfolk, another post TO the blog!"

Therefore, I humbly beg forgiveness for taxing your communicative skills so outrageously. I do solemnly swear to check and re-check all textual products prior to submitting them for public display from this day forward.

Thank you all for your superhuman patience!
