So this is now day four of spending the majority of my waking hours reading blogs, writing my own posts, and tweaking my blog. I am acting much like I used to in the first stages of dating someone (except those experiences involved considerably more showering and primping). I don't want to eat or sleep, I just want to blog and read other people's blogs!!! This actually could be good for my desire to drop 10 pounds. Not so good for the cleanliness level of house, child, or self though.
I had a hint last year that it could be this addictive, but then I had a dissertation to finish and a husband watching over me (he couldn't support us much longer on his income, and he would have felt horridly guilty if I never finished, given that I took over a year of leave to care for our baby so that he could finish first!), so I had to sneak it here and there, and had no time to start my own until the very end. But I had NO IDEA it would be this much fun.
One of the blogs I've been reading obsessively this week is Belinda's hilarious and marvelously detailed account of her life over at Ninja Poodles. She was sweet enough to come visit me today and generous enough to leave comments. (Bless your heart, Belinda! There: did I do it right?) I geeked out when I saw my email alerts that she had commented, and I am truly flattered. So if you haven't discovered her yet (I realize there aren't many readers here yet, but let me be optimistic and speak to those who may find there way here later and read through the archives), you simply must go visit. As she would say, go now and "clicky clicky" over there on my list of faves on the right. You won't regret it.
And anyone who may have advice to this new blogger, please email me at kazasplaceATgmailDOTcom. (For one thing, how do I add the "email me" link? I'm slow on the uptake here and I can't seem to find it in my settings menu.)
