Holy cow, Maynard.

The 9rules Network, according to their website, highlights "the very best web content in the world, and package it in a nice bow for you to unwrap. Our members discuss a wide range of topics from interface design and technology, to business, humor, and many others."

What I've always liked about this site is that they're not a traffic exchange where you surf for credits. Instead, they bring a bunch of independent blogs together, build a community and also feature bits about the blogs on their front page or their Communities and Featured sections.

But to be perfectly honest, what completely sold me on the site was their original 9 rules for living:

1. Love what you do.
2. Never stop learning.
3. Form works with function.
4. Simple is beautiful.
5. Work hard, play hard.
6. You get what you pay for.
7. When you talk, we listen.
8. Must constantly improve.
9. Respect your inspiration.

So, now I await the Member Agreement so that I can officially become a member of an outstanding network of blogs.

To Greenr, Joe and all the others from BlogMad who made it (I haven't gotten through the whole list of nominees yet), a very heartfelt: CONGRATULATIONS.
Also, a special congratulations to Mike Rohde of rohdesign ... I discovered Mike's blog while searching for some reference material to practice my own sketching techniques and fell in love with Mike's SketchToons. So I'm doubly excited to see that he has also made the preliminary 9rules list.
