Hey folks! Just a real short post this Saturday morning to take care of some tech-y things. If you are real observant and you stalk my blog like a hawk, then you may have noticed that I've done some updating to my page this morning. But seeing as how I JUST GOT DONE fighting with Google over how to arrange everything, I doubt anyone has seen it yet. So let's look to our right of this post, and I'll give you a little tour. (FYI: If you are reading this on a phone or tablet, you may need to scroll to the bottom and click the little link that says "View web version". Go ahead and click it, I'll wait.)
Ready? Let's go.
Alright, I didn't change the position of the "Blog Archive" or the "About Me" sections. But in case you normally read my blog on your phone, you may or may not have seen/noticed any of this stuff. So for the sake of being painstakingly thorough, I'll give a short explanation. The Blog Archive is a place where you can see a list of every. single. post. I've ever written ever. You're welcome. The About Me is for those of my readers who do not personally know me....or for those of you who just really like to read things that you already know. Pretty self explanatory.
The next section, called "Follow us on....." is new. I have created individual accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr (because I can't do Instagram on my phone...sad face sad face sad face....) for this blog. Even though I have a personal account already, I'm not quite ready to dive into full Internet disclosure and accept friend requests from people I don't know, just so they can see when I slap up a new post. So having a separate account for those of my readers who do not already personally know me (what's up folks! nice to have you!!) seems like a good way to go. Can't be too careful these days, ya know??? I post the most using Twitter, just because it's easier that way. So if you just can't get enough of us through this blog, then you can get some more of us there. For right now, the Facebook page is just a place for me to link up my blog posts since most of my reader traffic comes through Facebook. And to be honest, I've only posted one picture on Flickr because I'm still trying to figure it out. So be patient, OKAY??
And while I'm taking entirely too long to explain all of this, let me just add one thing: people come up to me all the time and say "I read your blog all the time, I LOVE it!" And then I say "Really, I thought the only one who read my blog was Roman and my mom. I now love you forever" (Or something like that.....Shout out to my homiesss!!) So for all of you beautiful people who, for whatever reason, love to read this blog....can y'all do me a huge huge HUGE favor? Go like our Facebook page and if you have a Twitter account, start following us. (Also, if you know how to operate Flickr, give your girl a shout out!) And if you like a particular post that I wrote, share the link on your Facebook page so other people can see it. (There are tiny icons at the bottom of each post that you can click to share it on Facebook and Twitter, or you can just take the link that I post to Facebook each time and click "share".) Seriously, I would owe all of you great big milkshakes and lots of hugs if you could do that. In looking at my statistics, probably around 95% of my readers follow a Facebook link to read my blog, so sharing the links on your page would be a BIG help. Okay, enough about THAT.
Next up we have the "Blogs I Lurve" section....I didn't add anything to this section. But if you want to know who I follow/stalk every day, then check this section out. Many of them are marriage bloggers, but there is a good mix over there of some for-real awesome blogs. So if you are bored or just don't feel like answering that e-mail at work, check it out!
Alright, next we have the "Mercy House". I'm going to do a special post on this next week highlighting what this is about, so for now I'll just say this: if you are looking for jewelry, t-shirts, bags, etc. and want to support a GREAT cause, then follow this link and check it out. This is not an affiliate link so I don't get any income if you make a purchase, but I just love the Mercy House's mission and wanted to share this link with all of you.
There is a light at the end of this tunnel....last section! Right now there is only one link under the "Affiliates" section, but hopefully in the near future I will be adding some more. This link is to a book called "31 Days to Great Sex" by Sheila Gregoire. IF YOU ARE MARRIED or about to get married, I highly recommend this book. Sheila is a great writer and covers the topic of *ahem* marital intimacy with great tact. So if you're looking to spice things up, or just improve on something great you already have, then check out this book. (DISCLOSURE: This is an affiliate link, so if you click this link and then make a purchase, I do get a small percentage of the profit.)
Okay, so I guess I lied to all of you when I said this was a real short post.....oops. Forgive me? But that's all I got for you this morning. I'm off to go ride horses with some friends (probably a terrible idea since it is stinkin' COLD outside!!). I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will "see" you guys on Monday! :)
PS: I am SO thankful for my readers and seriously love you guys. It makes my week when someone comes up and says how much they enjoy reading my posts. All of you are awesome!
