Blog This!

It's been a full week since I began blogging here, and I'm discovering lots of new things. I've managed to add counters (so I can sign on 10 times a day and still be depressed that I'm the only one moving the damn numbers), I've added an email update button (to which no one has subscribed. And you call yourselves my friends), and I'm learning what the hell a blogroll is and how to speak the computer geek language. I've managed to earn $2.86 from my Google ads (Early retirement is just around the corner) and if you people don't start frappr-ing yourself on my map, I'm going to have to take drastic measures. I might have to post more stories about underwear. Don't make me do it, because I will!

I think it's pretty clear that I have no earthly idea what I'm doing. But I thought I'd share links to two sites that clearly have it together.

First, Miss Doxie and her crazy dogs and even crazier boyfriend keep me highly entertained. I mean, the poor girl had to dress up like an elf at her office Christmas party, and posted pictures of herself. Now that's sacrificing for your readers, people! (If you subscribe to my site, I might just sacrifice for you, too!)

Another site I came accross yesterday through BlogExplosion was Jenny's It's All Greek to Me. I loved the design, and she had all the bells and whistles, plus interesting posts. I think I managed to insult her when I emailed (great Carms, way to ingratiate yourself to the blogging community) asking that she put her semi-professional eye on my site and give comments. Well, she's a Web designer by trade, so she's not semi-professional, she is ACTUAL professional.

I can only hope that my blog can someday measure up. I mean Miss Doxie had over 70 comments on her newest post. 70! I'd get excited for just one comment. Oh, dare to dream! :)
