Who she is: Belle lives in NoVA and I met her late last year at a blogger happy hour. I'd started reading her blog and particularly wanted to meet her. She's in her 20's, grew up in the Deep South and has been in the DC area for about a year. She's good natured, a good sport and a good person.
Why I read: Belle is a great writer with a good ear for dialog. The details of her dating stories are priceless. She is a tolerant person—to a fault and to many other people's faults—but that's why she's so sympathetic. Unfortunately, her blogging has fallen off in recent months. While I wish she would post more often, I hope she's at least doing her writing somewhere else.
