This blog is about blogging. I’ve been doing so since September or October of 2008. I don’t even remember what got me started! I knew no one that blogged, and still, amongst IRL (in real life, something I learned on MckMama's blog) friends, it isn’t something they do. That’s why I love it actually. It’s a diary; a private journal, that the world can read, but that those close, don’t really. Well, except my sister, who follows, but hasn’t yet started a blog! C’mon Kim, it’s a great way to just blurt stuff out, meet new people, pray for those you’d never know need prayers. Those are my top three reasons at least. J I’d like to improve my blogging skills though. So here are a few questions that I wondered if any of my bloggy friends can answer. I’d appreciate it.
First, How do you get 3 columns? Or a right AND left sidebar if that’s what it’s called. I like the look.
Second, How do you write something, and then put a line through it likes it crossed out? It’s probably simple, but I can’t figure it out.
Third, darn, I know I had a third. Can’t remember! Maybe it will come to me later.
Do many of you “surf” Blogger? Across the top of my blog, I like clicking on Next Blog sometimes, and just see where Blogger takes me. I seem to find a lot of Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and German blogs! Wish I could read/speak the languages! Many of them look so interesting! My favorites are the ones that have many pictures. So that’s why I try and post a lot too. If the pictures interest me, then maybe they interest others as much when visiting my blog!
Have you ever had someone visit and become a follower, and then when you go visit them, it just seems like they want your business? I have. I “un”follow them! I’m not here for that!
I love the contests too. I actually won a book on one blog! So neat. I’d like to do one, but I don’t know of what, and, I’m a little scared of where that might lead. Many followers just here for a prize maybe? What’s the harm in that though. Contests are fun!
I am getting ready to change my blog look. I need a new background, and a new Header. OH!! That’s the third question! How do I create my own Headers? LaLaLisa was kind enough to create the one I have, and I love it! But I’m ready for a change. It will include my favorite fruit. Can you guess what it is? Did I just start a contest? Maybe!! I typed/deleted/typed/deleted a thousand times just now, these words: “yes! A contest! Whoever guesses the fruit, I swear, I truly will send them a prize.” I can’t commit! I’m afraid of what it will start! We’ll see…..
That’s it for now. I’ve been typing while the DiSH drives us home from a great meal out with lots of friends and his brother’s family. His older brother turned 40 today! Mr. Smarty Pants takes his laptop everywhere with him, so I said, “hey! Let your mom use your laptop for a while!” Made the trip FLY by! Little Man is sound asleep next to me in his carseat (yes, I sit in the back, next to him MOST of the time, what can I say). Girly Girl is in the third seat (a mini-van, I love it), being very quiet. She likes to look at the night lights as we drive.
Have a good night everybody!
