I'm Lazy!

Okay, I'm going to enlighten you guys here today. Some of you will get nothing out of this...some of you will.

Let me stand up and say "I'm lazy!"

I mean that.

I am.

So I want to tell you about this new gadget that Blogger came out with. Officially it is called "FOLLOWERS". Nifty little booger...you put it on your side bar (mine upper right hand part of my side bar) and then fellow bloggers can click on the "FOLLOW THIS BLOG" link and follow away.

I'll admit...I was hesitant at first to start following blogs. I already have my Google Reader stem full of blogs I can't live a day without reading...but...

What I have found by making that first step and following a blog...I have found that those blogs are added under a subject header in my Google Reader as "BLOGS I'M FOLLOWING"! It's freakin' SWEET! Now...ANYBODY...friends, family, foe...I can follow stalk in my Google Reader without searching or subscribing! Don't get me wrong...I love to see my OWN numbers go up in the subscribing portion of my feedburner...but it's so much easier for me to FOLLOW someone then to search them out and subscribe to them.

Basically, I understand, it's the same thing. Only that I can see your cute picture on my right side bar when you are following me...and even better is I can see MY cute picture on YOUR side bar when I am following you.

So GRAB the gadget already! So I can follow you. It makes my life easier--that's INCLUDING my friends...that know me in person...and only update their blogs 1.2 times in a month! You see...if I can follow you...then I don't have to keep checking EVERY OTHER DAY to see if you have posted...

It's lovely...

Just thinking about it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Because making me check your blog puts all the blame on your when I neglect my children! That's right it's YOUR fault. I could be using those precious wasted seconds, minutes, hours, cuddling my stubborn 3 year old or baking with my wanna-be-chef 6 year old.

But no...

I am dutifully checking your blog...that you haven't updated anyway.

I know, I know...whoa is me...but the weight of guilt is off my shoulders realizing that REALLY I am not to blame...but YOU...you are...you non conformist, selfish, non-follower-gadget person!


Onto pretty and light things. I received two more awards! One from Giggles who is hilarious, pregnant, and has an funny comic strip to boot! Oh she also is Australian, and if you know anything at all about me you know I am obsessed with all things Australian...I have already received this award but I wanted to let her know how thankful I was for it...and how much it made my day that she singled me out (along with 5 or 6 other people) to tell me:

And the second came from CJ, the Purple Diva who makes personalized buttons for people she thinks is special...this week I happened to be one of those special people...and don't tell anybody else, but MY blog button happened to be the coolest--here take a look:

Usually at this point I give out these awards to other people...but I have already done the top one and the second one doesn't tell me to give it out to other people because I believe her whole purpose is to make them special! So if you want one of your own...you'll have to jump over to her site and beg, plead, or leave a comment for one! :)

Love you all...and for the sake of my kids...ADD THE FOLLOWERS gadget!

I'm so a follower! And you are one of my followers! Good times!
I LOVE what you said about your button! THANK YOU! They are made special for my blog readers! And yes, people can have one...all they got to do is ask! Did I mention I LOVE what you said? Ok, thought so! THANKS SO MUCH!
Hey come on over for this week so you can get another one! I can't wait to see what will fit your week this week! Rock and roll!

I'm totally following you now! I added one last night. I'm lazy too and do all that I can to remain that way.

We are so following buddies.
I still come and check your blog, even if it doesn't show a new post.
Just in case.

I'd love to sign up, I really would. Promise! I do follow your blog, but for some reason, there is no "Follow this blog" link here... I've been able to put myself as a follower of other people's blogs so I don't know what is going on. Am I going crazy?!!! Am I so dumb? Well... just know that I'm following, I guess!

I must say I really enjoy your blog! I only discovered it a few days ago and now I'm here daily as a follower. But I don't use Google or Blogger so I can't add myself to your followers gadget. But no worries, you know I'm here stalking, I mean following your blog every day. :)
