Blogging Business

Yesterday I spent over an hour trying to figure out how to add something to my blog. I clicked copy, and paste, and delete, and save as, and edit html and ... well, you get the idea. But no matter what I did I couldn't make it work.

This morning I called my little sister and said, "Can you help me?" She walked in to my office and said, "What do you want to do?" I told her and she did it - in less than 5 minutes.

I said, "How do you do that? It's not fair that you're so smart. Why can't I be even a little bit smart when it comes to computers?"

She laughed and said, "What I wish is that when you write about this on your blog (she knew I would) you could somehow write it in the same voice you're saying it with."

And then I said, "Don't mock. It's rude." (I'm sick. Remember, 4 hours of camp fire sitting = a cold. And I don't really have a voice, and when I do talk it's interrupted by fits of coughing.)


Because baby sister is so intelligent I'm able to show you the award I got from Jessica!

Isn't it lovely?

With this award I'm supposed to answer the following questions and then pass it on to 5 other blogs. 5 blogs? How am I going to narrow it down to 5? I may get an ulcer during the decision making process.

BUT...I'll do it, because I'm a rule follower. (As far as you know...)

The five people who I'm giving this award to are (in no specific order):

1. Sandra @ sandrasdance - This woman is superwoman. That's what I think. (And Sandra, thanks for the book!!!)

2. Lauriann @ Little Starling Photography - She doesn't know I read her blog. I guess now she will. We went to high school together. She's incredibly talented and her blog always makes me smile.

3. Stephanie @ Laughing At Life's Little Wedgies - I love her blog...and I think if we were to ever actually meet we could be BFFs.

4. Tia @ The Way I See It - Tia is adopting a little boy from Haiti. You should see his pictures.

5. Amy @ Two Scoops. I can't link to her blog because if I do my Internet crashes. (If someone can tell me how to fix that...well, that would be amazing!) BUT...if you click on one of her comments it will take you to her blog. She's great, and I love her.

This is turning in to a really long post. But on to the questions:

Phew...glad we got that one done.

One more little thing: see how my profile remains ever so blank? It's because I can't think of anything to say. Want to write my profile? Please? Anyone? (Well not anyone...Mr. Woolley might not say nice things...he has that tendency...)

And with that I'm off...Grandma Lucy needs me to call the bank. That will make my day.

Congrats on your award:) You do have a great blog:)

Sandra said...

Wow, thanks. I'll have you know that my cape is currently at the cleaners and I could use a sidekick to pick up the slack. Or at least take the blame.

And Mr. Woolley seems to be MIA lately.
