Taking a walk…

Posted by Catherine on February 17, 2009

…down blog-memory lane. It occured to me from catching a glimpse of someone’s blogaversary sign, that my own blogaversary is coming up! And after I installed mine, I realized how soon it was coming up!

Wow, I can’t believe that I’ve had my blog for almost a year! I know that I didn’t write as much or post as much in terms of ACTUAL projects (as opposed to the stuff I buy *LOL*) but that was my year and I can’t take it back or change it (actually, I guess I could by way of back-posts, but that would just be cheating myself, wouldn’t it…) All I’ll have to do is just try harder to be a much better blogger!

I think now’s a good time to put in another of these posts since I haven’t done much of those either!


Although I don’t update my blog as much as I should, when I get to like peoples’ blogs, I read them all from the very beginning. Not just a few posts back…I like to go to a blog’s archive and start from the veeery beginning and work my way forward. It’s fun to really get to know someone and their beginnings…I guess it’s also one of those things where you treat yourself how you’d like to be treated, and I guess I would hope that some people would find me interesting enough to read from the very beginning. It must just be the nosy-ness in me. I just like to know everything there is to know…plus it’s fun to see how people’s work have evolved…speaking of which…

Want to know something? I went and started reading mine from the beginning. It’s really fun…I make myself laugh with the weird, crazy things that I say and think and it’s so FUNNY to see how crazed I could get over buying things and waiting for things in the mail. Want to know something else? I was in the middle of reading one of my earlier posts and The Mister walks by and goes, “Ew, that one’s UGLY!” *rolls eyes* Can you just imagine the backtracking he had to do to try to dig himself out of the hole he just dug and threw himself into when I told him it was MY card? *sniffs* Hmph!

Anywho…I came across a couple things that I had written that made me laugh out loud (either in actual entertainment or embarrassment) and I thought that I would post a few of them from now until my actual blogaversary.

Plus, word on the street is that some people give away blog candy on their blogaversary, so I wouldn’t want to be the odd one out! Looks like I’ve got to get some fun things together, then! We shall see…

On to some SillySkittle-isms throughout the year…

The problem is, I need more stuff.”

Confession #11…

Posted by Catherine on February 3, 2009

…wow, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! But I was sorely reminded of it when I went to do a little blog-hopping this morning at work before start time.

I’m really sorry for those of you this applies to, I don’t mean anything by it and it just might help with your traffic…but I SERIOUSLY have a hard time with blogs that have music. ANY kind of music, but with the loud, fast kind of music. I mean, even if I like the song, I still don’t like blogs with music. Especially if I want to have peeks at blogs here at work and on my break, it practically makes me jump out of my seat when music starts blaring out of my usually quiet speakers.

But it’s not even when I’m not work…when I look at blogs at home, too. I don’t know, I think I just find it a little bit distracting and takes attention away from what I’m coming to see, which is crafty ideas and creations, etc. Plus, as much as I enjoy the music that I listen to, I don’t normally choose to force it upon anyone else either. And sometimes the blogs who have playlists, it takes me forever to find the little dashboard so I can press stop! While I do stay and complete my visit at blogs with music, it does shorten the length of time that I choose to stay – especially when there’s no option for me to stop the music. *shrugs* Just my own little confession/preference…maybe others feel the same and maybe not. Just a thought though if you have it and want to keep it…make it easier for me to find the stop button! 🙂
