Nuke Ids on the blog (Zig gone fission)

We're sorry we haven't posted recently. Real life has this nasty habit of intruding on blogging time, shoving bills in your face and yelling, "Who's gonna pay these, huh? Huh? Huh?" Work, we regret to say, has to take precedence over your surfing pleasure for a bit.
But, meanwhile, at the risk of your finding them so hot that you don't come back here, may we recommend a few places to point your browser? Those of you who look at our blogroll will have noticed a few new additions to that august list.
Our penpal, Manjula Padmanabhan, who frequent visitors (hah!) and commenters (hah!hah!) on this blog will know as the Margin Alien, has bowed to vociferous public demand and has started her own blog.
Another buddy, Sujoy Mukherjee usually does a new essay on tech, marketing and/or web-related stuff every week or two at Time is Fleeting.
And Seth Godin's riffs on marketing, respect, and the ways ideas spread is well worth a bookmark too.
Speaking of marketing, all you MBAs, this one's for you [link lifted from Seth's blog].
And if you're interested in blogging and networking as business tools, check out Conversations with Dina.
We'd also like to introduce you to Putu the Cat, who holds forth on lit, entertainment, food and all manner of other things.
And also to Phantasmagoria blog home of a virtual pal from another Zz avatar which we'd rather no talk about right now. Unlike us, she's a gifted, prolific writer who regularly posts essays, word-snapshots and poems. No links, though.
And lastly, a place where we can actually refer to ourselves as "we," without people accusing us of putting on airs or having worms. One of the things that's taken up some of our time is the setting up of a collablog - er, group blog? - for a bunch of (mainly) Bombay writers. We'd like to see it become a virtual hang out for writers to showcase their work, talk about writing and books, comment on lit news, exchange information, and sip coffee. So please visit Caferati. And we, er, this blog, er, Zigzackly, would love to hear what you think.
Right then, we're off for a bit. We need to rob a bank or something.
