Are you rolling on my blog

My week so far :

843 unread items in Google reader.

31 Lists read twice.

3 posts on this blog and 3 posts on StashaBPhotography.

Over 400 tweets.

Countless blogs read, even more photos looked at.

1 bagel forgotten in a toaster on Tuesday morning. Found on Thursday. Don’t even remember if it was for me or Little J.

Blogging is hard work. It is fun and all, but it is hard work. And in my case it is not bringing me any fame or fortune.

It is however bringing me you. Wonderful, talented writers, photographers, educators, people I wish lived on my block.

I have been meaning to update my blogroll for months now. I just honestly don’t have the time. So this is the beginning. I will be adding all of you as I find time to do so. Because I do read your stuff and I read it because I LIKE IT.

That’s that.

Blogroll part 1 of estimated 317:

(these are in no particular order, cause you know I heart you all).

Old TweenerLetters For LucasBlog Button
and then, she {snapped}

Two Normal Moms, Lilahbility and Not Wifezilla; you girls drove me mad trying to find some kind of image for you. Nada. But I will still read your blog, lovingly.

I must go to sleep. All my favorite photo blogs I will leave for next time.

Update: I will link this post to cookies_chronicles_BOTB_button because all my favorite posts in October were on these very blogs. My list of Best of the Blogosphere!

    thanks for the inclusion, darlin, and backatcha, always, although my list is currently woefully, woefully out of date. Next week’s task.

      I have been delaying this task for months. One of the blogs I have listed in my footer I have not visited since April. Enough said. But soon, very soon I will get around to doing it. And sleeping :)

    I feel so honoured and humbled to be included in your blogroll. Thanks so much and I heart you too. You know, this is the first time I’m using the word ‘heart’ in this context. Your blog has given me a number of firsts.

    I really wonder who the bagel was meant to be eaten by…and how that person didn’t notice that they were not eating it!

    Forgotten bagel in the toaster. Yup. I can relate… forgotten pot of macaroni on the stove (just threw out the old, blackened pot in the end). Busy, busy, busy! I really need to update my blogroll too. Thanks for including me – so honoured to be in the company of the bloggers you listed! :-)

    Awwww, thanks! This reminds me I MUST update my own blogroll and apparently I need to get to work on a button, too. Sorry to be a pain in the behind for not having one! Now, who wants to teach me how to make myself a button… someone, anyone???

    I am so happy to be included in your blog roll! Good thing I made a couple buttons. Is it too big? Is that like asking if my butt looks big? LOL

  11. [email protected] October 8, 2011 at 05:30 #

    You did it, Stasha! Yay! I’m stoked for you and the fact that I actually had a button you could post…what a great idea! Many, many thanks for including The Aums, it means a lot to me! As for the bagel, check this one out: You know when you make brownies, there’s the bowl of wet ingredients and the bowl of dry ingredients? Well, couldn’t figure out why my brownies failed even though it’s a trusted recipe, until next morning when I discovered the dry ingredients still on the counter! Not sure if you’ve noticed, but I prioritize sleep way more these days :)

    I know, it is a hectic life we lead, we bloggers. The reward? To connect with another like-minded soul in this universe.Yes, even if you find only 5 out of the thousands you visit, you’d have found 5 friends.Hope we connect.

    So Stasha, I felt guilty for the lack of pictures. I spent naptime today researching and creating a button for my site. I was tempted to put the little title “For Stasha” on the top but thought that a bit too fresh :) Thanks for the love!

      I was inspired by The Aums Mama. I saw your button and it is so pretty. I was tempted to post it, but I was going to be honest and I have only just started reading your blog. Look forward to placing it in round two :)

    I had a desire to make my company, nevertheless I didn’t have got enough amount of money to do this. Thank God my fellow advised to utilize the mortgage loans. So I took the financial loan and made real my dream.
