I am the first one to admit that I am terrible about updating my own stuff. I'm all for fixing up other people's stuff and having it perfectly up to date, but when it comes to MY blogs, I'm super slow. Sorry about that. I don't think I'm lazy...I just think I get distracted easily and forget stuff. Soooo...
Today I went through my posts and updated both my **BLOG TIPS** and my Awards and Prizes tabs that you can find at the top of this page.
Then I went through y'alls blogs looking for buttons and found lots of them that I needed to share. Some of them, like blueviolet @ A Nut in a Nutshell, I've followed for a long time but they've been busy updating and I haven't caught up with them until now. Not that I haven't read them. I read everyone all the time. I just haven't posted their new stuff yet.
You can get to each of these blogs simply by clicking on their buttons (including blueviolet's pretty new purple button....by the way, she has LOTS and LOTS of giveaways so you should really visit her if you like getting free stuff!). Their sites will open in a new tab so don't worry about clicking like crazy and losing me. You'll still have me and you'll get them so CLICK AWAY!!
I've also started following a new cooking blog, Laurie Holcombe aka Laurie's Kitchen. You can click here to visit her and also get to know her on my cookbook today where she is my Featured Chef by clicking here. She is pretty awesome and I think you'll like her!
And last but not least, the beautiful Ji @ Jingle has given me some awards that I need to share with you...
Thank you so much Ji!! You are so sweet ♥ I'd like to share all of these awards with all of you reading this so please take them and proudly post them or whatever you want to do :)
Put your party hats on and get ready for some cake! Today is a very special day! It's the beautiful and sweet Shakira's birthday!! Yay! I won't tell you how old she is (she can if she wants too) but I wanted to take this moment to tell her Happy Birthday and I love you!!
Click here to go to her blog and tell her Happy Birthday :)
First let me tell you that my computer has issues. It hates the internet suddenly which really bites because I love the internet but I can't seem to figure out what the issue is so for now I'm just babying it and goin' on.
This means that I'm writing today's posts now (Monday night) while the goober my computer is cooperating and will schedule them for tonight at midnight or so...
Hopefully I'll be able to get online tomorrow and visit all of you but if not, I'll be there as soon as I can!
Now let me tell you that I am a horrible person! Ok, not really, but I am really bad about forgetting to tell you about new blogs that I follow. So, finally, here are the newest blogs that I follow:
For those of you that know Jingle, you know that she looooves to give awards. Sometimes I am quite overwhelmed by the amount of awards she gives out and get confused over which ones are meant for me. I think I have these right...like I said, I get confused lol
I just thought I'd share this video with y'all today. It's just crazy if you ask me! I post under my own name though and not anonymous so I guess if someone wanted to sue me for my opinion it'd be easy to find me :)
I told you yesterday that something had made me very unhappy but I wasn't going to get into it on my daughter's birthday. Today, however, you will hear about it.
If you read my Happy At Home blog then you already know why I'm upset. Aggravated is a much better word. Here's the deal... My fish is very sick. More than likely she's going to die. I spent all of my free time yesterday and last night trying to research what is wrong with her. The key word there is trying.
Most of the sites Google sent me to were no help at all. That really makes me mad. Why did Google say they were good sites for the answers I so desperately needed? Because of the tags that were put on people's posts. They added tags that had NOTHING to do with the actual post that they wrote. That is so wrong to me.
Google has no idea that their search results are wrong. As far as I know they don't anyway. Their robots search the site and the labels aka tags that the site administrator added to their posts lies to the robots and makes them think there is something about that thing on the site when there really isn't. (Does that make sense?)
So today I'd like to suggest to you...to BEG YOU...PLEASE DO NOT ADD TAGS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR POST! I wasted a lot of time going to sites that did not contain what they claimed to contain. Ok, I feel better now. To feel EVEN better, I'm moving on to the things I love :)
