Accolades, Memes, and Twitters, three topics for a cold, winter day.
Accolades are always nice to get and I’ve gotten a few these past few weeks that I’d like to acknowledge, thank the givers of, and then pass along to others.
First, Jodi from Bloomingwriter presented me with an “E for Excellent” award. Thank you, Jodi and ‘back atcha”.
Then my very own sister presented me with an “I’m Addicted to Your Blog” award. Thank you, Sherry. I recently hooked her up with a blog and now she’s off and running on her own now.
I will say that picking blogs to pass these awards along to is mighty difficult for me. I use a feed reader (Google’s) to keep track of blogs so I can readily find new posts because I read a lot of blogs.
I highly recommend that anyone who reads more than a few blogs set up a feed reader. It will make your blog reading not necessarily effortless, but at least a whole lot easier. You’ll find you don’t have to keep going to your favorite blogs to figure out “have they posted again, how about now, when are the posting again?” You just go to your feed reader and the new posts are listed right there for you to review.
I also use Blotanical’s “current list” feature to find new blogs that aren’t on my feed reader, when I have time. It’s always fun to find a new garden blog that you really like and can identify with.
My sister also tagged me for a meme today to show you all my refrigerator and the magnets on it. My refrigerator! I looked at it and thought, “Hmmm, will people think better of me or worse of me if they see the magnets on my refrigerator?” Let’s just say that I have a lot of magnets with a gardening theme on my refrigerator, several Indiana Pacer schedule magnets going back about nine years, and pictures of family and friends and leave it at that, shall we?
Or would you all like to compare “gardening themed” refrigerator magnets like we shared “gardening themed” Christmas ornaments a few months ago?
If you thought that reading my twitters on my sidebar was like watching a plant that appears to being doing nothing, well it turns out you can set up your plant to twitter, too. A co-worker sent me a link to this site, Botanicalls, with instructions on how to set up a plant so that it can post a “twitter” when it needs water. It seems just a tiny bit complicated to me, but if you decide to try it, let me know so I can “follow” your plant, like I’m following their pothos plant.
Now consider yourself tagged as “E for Excellent” and “I’m Addicted to Your Blog” if you see yourself on my sidebar lists of blogs. Plus I’m tagging Mary of Mary’s View.
And if you aren’t listed on my sidebar and would like to be, just let me know, I’m happy to add you!
