The Monkey on My Back

Tom Iovino’s blog is one of my favorites; his frequent posts are informative, amusing and personable. He and his brethren woodworking bloggers provide a real service to our industry with insightful posts about all aspects of woodworking. We all owe them big time.

Recently Tom emailed asking for my shirt size. I couldn’t see how it could hurt to tell him and sure enough, soon enough, this showed up in the mail:

Support Your Local Blogger!

He has a few more of these available for sale and I think he deserves a reward for all his hard work so, what the heck, order a Shop Monkey tee. Tell him Ron sent ‘ya.

Thanks, Tom!

And next time you get a chance, thank a blogger for all they do for us. I mean it. Some of the blogs I read regularly (as best as I can keep up) are listed in the column to your right —> (and down a bit.)

Keep up the good work, bloggers!

    Thanks for this post Ron. I completely agree and not just cause I’m a blogger myself. I can’t tell you how much I have learned from my fellow bloggers and I include you in this. Oh and Tom is a stand up nice guy!
