If you can't see the bling, re-save my blog to your favorites. It will then show up. What? I'm not on your favorites? What you are waiting for? An invite?
Pssst. Can you hear me? I don't want The Man to know this. But I bought a new blog bauble for myself yesterday. Oh wait, he already knows. He helped me pick it out. So why I am whispering? I don't know. I'm alone in the house. Kind of weird. It's so quiet. I'm not used to that. Maybe that's why I'm whispering. My kids are at my parent's house for the day and night. Woohoo. So now, I get to clean out the basement again. Notice I said AGAIN. Yeah, good times. I hate keeping stuff. Once we are done with stuff, off to goodwill it goes or to some unsuspecting recipient like my neighbor T-Luh who will find a Little Tikes Rocking Horse on her front porch when she gets home. Her husband has no idea that horsey is moving in from down the street. That's the way we roll around here. And I mean we roll. As in we roll our unused junk from one house to another. Witness the desk in my daughter's room that was given to us by one of my neighbors. LRRH loves it. Free and functional. Works for me. What does all this have to do with my new bloggy bauble? Not one thing. I just wanted to talk to ya.
Did you notice it yet? My new bling? No? Okay, I'll tell you. Look at the browser tab on this page. Notice the curly cue up there? It's from the dotted "i" in my header title "This is the Life". Cara from Your blogicon custom made it for me. And lucky for you, while I was driving home from the half-a-tank drop off of my kids at my parents house just so I could get
some peace and quiet some projects done, I was thinking that it would be fun to adorn a couple of bloggy friends with some new bling. Just like mine. Don't you love it? Your custom blogicon will look cool on your browser. And when your fans add you to their favorites, your blog will, ya know, BLING.
Do you want your own custom blogicon?
If you do, leave me a comment and tell me what kind of gas guzzler you drive. That's more interesting than "Hi, I'm Betty blogger and I want bling. Enter me in your contest." Plus, as I've said before, I'm nosey like that. (Did I tell you I hate mini-vans? Won't be caught dead driving one. Well, I can't be caught dead driving one because I would be, well, dead. I drive a $75- and- rising a tank SUV. )That's all ya gotta do. Just say "Hi Debbie, I drive an SUV or minivan or car or bicycle or in my case sometimes, a broom." No linking back. No wasting a post about Debbie's 430something post giveaway on your blog (437 to be exact). Simple. And I will have Little Red Riding Hood do a live random drawing of TWO of your names at the end of the week. Polls close at midnight Eastern time, July 26, 2008. That sounds so official doesn't it.
I really have no idea what I'm doing. I just wanted to bless TWO bloggy friends with their own custom blogicons as a way of saying thanks. You all think I'm funny. And, you keep coming back. And, I really appreciate that, because I'm a little insecure about this blogging thing sometimes. And, you all have really encouraged me along the way. Oh, wait, now I know why I was whispering, I didn't tell The Man about the blog bling giveaway. Oh honey, it's only $20. I'll pay for it with Hunka Hunka's (my son) birthday money that's soon to arrive in the mail for only me to see. Ever.
A couple of you have mentioned that you can't see my blogicon. Go to your web browser where you would type in a URL, and there should be a curly cue just before my blogspot URL. If you use Internet Explorer it will show up on the browser tab instead of the blogger logo right next to the title "This is the Life."
