Because I like to let you know when I’m slacking off…

So, I’m writing this post to tell you that I’m not going to be writing a post. Does that make sense? I’ve had a very busy week and I’m really playing catch up right now. There’s work going on behind the scenes that you don’t know about. I’d like to tell you that it’s very exciting, but I know how lying has worked out for me in the past.

Anywho, I’m going to be spending the next few days replying to all of the wonderful comments that you all have been leaving on the blog. I love me some comments, so please, keep them coming. You can not over-comment, unless you’re spamming me, which just isn’t nice. For shame. I’ve added “Recent Comments” to my sidebar, so if you’re a blogger your link will be in my sidebar every time you comment on my blog. It’s great exposure so you’ll definitely want to comment often so that you can snatch up those 3 loyal readers that I have 😉

If you’re a blogger I’m going to be spending some time reading your blogs and commenting. I’ve been trying to keep up with reading/commenting on all of the Goose and WordPress Tribe members and the Mommy’s Piggy Tales and Young Adult Years members. I’d like to get a chance to read all of the Happiness posts in the Blog it Forward Blog Hop as well…but that’s a lot of reading to do. And even though it ended in September I’d also like to go back and read/comment on all of the 4 Moms Open House posts which is also going to take a sweet forever. Like I said, I’m a little behind…so a comment on my blog will increase the chances that I’ll make it around to your blog to read and comment. In fact, you can leave me a link to a post you’d like me to read. Family friendly, please.

If you’re not a blogger, then go and get a blog and make a post and come back and let me know so that I can comment on it. Just kidding! Still, the comments are greatly appreciated. Read and comment. Even if it’s just to say “I was here” and how you found me. Also, subscribing is very important…so check out all of the ways that you can follow me in the sidebar to the right.

I’m also going to be taking a little “me” time to go around and enter some giveaways because, well, Mama likes to win some free stuff. I just don’t always have the time to enter them and I’m going to make a little time this week. Oooo, I hope I win something, or everything! If you’re a blogger with a giveaway going on right now, leave me a link 🙂

I’m still “tweaking” my blog. I’m trying to improve it in any way that I can think of, so please feel free to critique! I’m open to comments, suggestions, recommendations, and advice (whether you’re a blogger or not). Let me know what you like and what you don’t like. Any design or navigation issues? What can you tell me about the content? What would you like to see more of or less of? I’m a people-pleaser…but only on the internet 😉

In upcoming blog-related news, I actually do have a few posts that you can anticipate depending on when I have the time to write them.
+As always I’ll be posting my Mommy’s Piggy Tales on Thursday (2nd grade this week) and Young Adult Years on Monday (not sure yet, but something that went down between 1998-2001).
+This weekend hopefully I’ll be posting a Halloween-related post each day as part of the Canon Rebel giveaway hosted by The SITS Girls.
+I have 2 new “Festival of Festivals” posts coming up soon where you can read about our visits to Hozak Farms and Triple B Farms.
+On Sunday I threw CoolDaddy his awesome 30th Birthday Party. You don’t want to miss this post once it’s up!

And that’s about it. So I’m off to reply, read, comment, tweak, and more, all while doing my mommy thang. Meanwhile, you should be smothering me with lots of comment-love and subscribing to my blog and following me on Facebook and Twitter. My desperation is pathetic, I know, but can you blame me? After all, I hear tell that I have no friends 😉

See you in a few days!

  1. It is nice to stay connected to readers! I think your blog is great. The only feedback I would give is more pictures, either in the banner or along the sides.

    Blessing,

    • Thanks, Chaplain Donna! I love the compliment 🙂 I’d love to add some more photos. I’m not sure what kind of a picture to add to the banner that goes along with my blog/theme. A family picture? Any suggestions?

      I’ve thought about added some small banner sized photos with links to my more popular (and older) posts) so that people can access them easily. I just haven’t had the chance to do that yet. How many should I add? I don’t want to add too many!

      Thanks again for your comment!

    • Thanks so much! Obviously I like to hear that someone likes my blog 🙂 I appreciate any help or advice someone’s willing to give me. I want to make my blog as good as I can, I’m kind of a perfectionist like that!
