Oh, wow. Okay.

For the first time since its publication, I read I'm Stalking Jake! cover to cover this week.

I am extremely proud of the end product.  I'm proud of the work that I did with Jake Watch, and remain astonished at my luck in finding such a productive and complementary partner in Susie (britpopbaby).

And yet I also now understand why so many people have commented to me on the "honesty" of the book as a whole.  As I wrote it, I was concerned I may come off as too sanctimonious.  I see now that those fears were ungrounded; I did a remarkable job of leaving my character flaws prominently in place.

It made me laugh, it made me clench up in was surreal to acknowledge that the story that I was reading was the story of my own life.  And not only that, but the story of my life as written by me.  That being the case, I can't quite explain how it was that I stayed up past my bedtime three nights in a row because I was dying to know "what happened next."

Jake Watch wasn't just a blog.  It was an adventure.  And it was a work of art - living and breathing art - that swept me and so many other people up in its wake.  I comment at one point toward the end of the book that there was nothing like it on the internet.  And there wasn't; there still isn't, and I doubt there ever will be.

If you haven't yet read the book, I strongly encourage you to do so.  An endorsement from the author may seem like a conflict of interest, but I wrote the damn thing and I hadn't read it yet, either.   Not really.  Not from the perspective of a reader, rather than a writer.

And now that I have, the only thing that I can say is that I am so incredibly glad that I wrote it.  Wow.  What a ride...

You should be proud, Becky. The blogs are amazing, I've told you how damn funny I think they are. It's some of the best stuff I've ever read anywhere. I don't post often, but I hope you know that I am a huge fan.

Hey Becky, I know this is really, really, really late in the game but I just wanted to say that I love your writing. The fact that you were able to publish a book about this type of thing has really inspired me as well. In fact, it was part of the reason I started blogging again after about 10 years of believing that I shouldn't blog again. :)

I'm a little Jake crazy, of course, and so I'm going to do a stack of movie reviews about Jake's backlog of movies. (I mean, who *wouldn't* want to read a bunch of reviews about films that they don't quite remember or never knew existed in the first place? I'm going to create that blog right now, to target that non-existent market. ;)

Love your sense of humour, too.

The movers offer a range of services and there is no standard moving formula, although there are generally three types of services. First of all there is the simple formula (the customer keeps a certain number of operations at his expense such as dismantling, packing, or unpacking). EW Movers in Dubai
The mid-range offer includes for the customer to manage only the easiest operations (for example the packaging of linen and books ...). Finally, there is often an "all-inclusive" offer where you have entered the customer has nothing to do.
