$$ Delurking and Donating – Keeping it Going! $$
While I was soliciting comments here on Delurker Day, I also managed to do some delurking of my own, dropping more comments than I do most days. (To be honest, there are many times I’ll share a link to a post, here or on Twitter, instead of commenting, because I’m either busy or lazy.) Here are some stats on the visits I made as of 7 PM last night:
Blogs where I have occasionally commented, or haven’t commented for a while: 21
Blogs where I comment semi-regularly: 3
Also, if you’d like to make a your own donation to the Red Cross, I’ve installed an official Blogger widget in the sidebar of the blog that will make it very easy for you.
New Arrivals in my Google Reader
Watch this space! As I mentioned in my Bloggiesta wrap-up, I have begun adding new blogs to a special “trial” folder in Google Reader. Once I’ve had a few weeks to get to know them, I’ll decide if they’re keepers – and if they are, that’s when I’ll mention them here.
Dispatches: Links of the Week
Feeling that you’re where you belong (or belong where you are); or, contentment is underrated
Speaking of being where you belong: have you ever felt that your blog isn’t really your place anymore, and you’re not free to say what you really want to? (That’s when it’s good to have blog friends who’ll let you guest-post it at their place.)
And now, a few links from the lighter side:
How cute is your pet? Enter him or her in A Novel Menagerie‘s 2nd annual “My Beautiful Baby” Contest – send in the picture that will get the votes! (But if I decide to enter my Gypsy again, your pet won’t be getting my vote – sorry, but that’s just the way it is!)
Well, I finally know what to call the fake name I use at Starbucks – my “chai-dentity”! The term was coined by my friend Anna Lefler and was recently accepted by UrbanDictionary.com – check out the entry and give this new word a thumbs-up!
Blogthings Quiz of the Week
|You Are Most at Home in the Living Room|
You’re the type of person who always feels relaxed at home. In many ways, it’s where you’re at your best.
You love to chill out at home. You are not the biggest homebody in the world, but you appreciate the time you spend there.
There’s nothing like having a few friends over to watch a movie or just talk in your living room.
I’ll probably be in the living room a bit during this three-day weekend – where will you be?
