Like dusting and vacuuming, I avoid housekeeping posts like the plague!
However, there are a few new things going on
in my blog that I would like to expand on.
* For those of you who love to join in or
follow weekly memes, blog hops etc Randomizeme has created a fabulous
directory that she is adding to constantly - check it out here or click
on 'Meme Directory' in my links panel.
You can also try The Daily Meme and Memeaholics for a wider (ie non-book related) selection of memes.
P.S. According to wikipedia, the definition of meme is "an idea, behaviour or style that spreads from person to person within a culture". And an internet meme is obviously one that spreads through the internet via blogs, email, social networking sites, youtube etc.
* I've been working on my blog fairly solidly
this year. I want to reach more people, engage in more discussions and get to
know my audience better. So I've joined a number of blog directory's and reading
challenges. Just click on the badges if you're interested. It has been a great
way to chat with more like-minded bloggers.
* A thousand apologies to wordpress bloggers.
I do have an account with wordpress so I can leave comments, but it seems to be
quite fickle. Some days, no matter what how often I log in, I cannot leave
messages. Today has been one of those days :-(
* Finally Linky Friends - apparently for all
non-Blogger blogs, the Google Friends Connect button will disappear after 1st
March. As a Blogger blogger, this wont affect me too much, but to allow other
bloggers to follow me easily, I've joined Linky. This group has also been
another good way to find like-minded bloggers.
* This blog is an award-free blog. My
philosophy is to write quick, brief blogs for busy people - the work required to
maintain the awards process does not fit into this
Finally, a big
thank you to all my new followers for stopping by and taking the time to leave a
friendly comment behind.
Happy blogging and happy reading!
