Just a few little items before we break for the weekend.
1) WordPress has something messed up with their Reader function which lists new posts for subscribed blogs. Some blogs have totally dropped of my list in the last month, some blogs show up intermittently, and a couple of days ago the function stopped working entirely. I’ve checked on the Support forums and this is a problem that lots of bloggers are having. It might be a problem with Explorer because it seems those who use Firefox are not affected. I assume that the Knights of the WordPress Roundtable are hard at work on this, and it will be fixed soon.
In the meantime, I don’t have any notice of who is posting what. If I haven’t stopped by to say hi, don’t worry – it’s not me, it’s them.
2) My friend Jules over at Go Guilty Pleasures will be 30 on Monday. What a baby – I’ve got shoes older than that! As part of the birthday celebration she is having a competition: describe your guilty pleasure and win a fabulous prize basket. You can trot on over and enter if you like, but I wouldn’t waste your time. I aim to get me that basket – Chocolate Covered Bacon is my middle name! No, really. I had it legally changed. It was kind of hard to fit the new monogram on my towels, but it was worth it.
3) My friend Katy over at k8edid is also having a competition – this one is a writing competition. A writing competition – what a great idea! Hmmm…where have I heard of that before? (hint, hint, right hand column, hint, hint)
Katy has a really great idea – a series of posts on each of the deadly sins. The first theme is Gluttony and the first batch of entrants was posted the other day, including the modest offering of your humble correspondent. (That’s me, by the way, in case the “humble” adjective confused you.) Go check out all the great entrants!
4) Caption contest fame and glory over at the Good Greatsby’s blog continues to elude me, so you don’t need to go over there for anything.
If you want to know which blogs are the bestest, just follow me around the blogosphere like a mad stalker and read what I read. Just be sure to return to my blog constantly (almost to the level of obsessively, but just short of me having to call the authorities) and love my stuff a lot.
Have a great weekend y’all – have fun and be safe!
HEY- late breaking complaining to go with #1 above. Where did “Comments I’ve Made” go as a choice in the header? Now I’m TOTALLY separated from all y’all with no way to find my way back. WordPress is cutting me off from the herd – I’m probably headed for the bloggy slaughter house!!!
