{ThReE hUnDrEd EiGhTy NiNe}

That would be the number of MEMORIES you have shared. UPDATES you have given. THOUGHTS you have inspired. HEARTS you have warmed. Times you have inspired FRIENDS to be better and try harder.


...and you have managed to do all of this in the month and a half!
And this is why I would say that I LOVE blogging!

In December I stopped logging into Google Reader to check my posts. It felt less personal. I love seeing the layouts and the comments. It is just another way to express yourself. I LOVE THAT! Instead I have relied solely upon the updates listed on the bottom of my sidebar to check on your most recent posts.

Today I decided to see how many posts have been made by all of you, through Google Reader. {389} . And that doesn't include my friends that have private blogs!

So, just want to say thanks. I LOVE staying up to date. Getting back in touch. Chatting through comments. Being motivated to be better and try harder. Sharin' the love. All through our blogs!

And to think...we can periodically go to or another site and have our blogs published into books! Pictures and all!

Scrapbooking, Journaling, keeping in touch with great friends! DONE!
I can't wait to see what the next 389 bring!

The other night Matt asked me if I am addicted to the internet..."No" I replied, "I am addicted to blogging." Then he made a smart-a (a for alec, of course) about if I had read my scriptures yet today. I would have thrown something at him but he was on the other side of the fireplace. Anyway... I was thinking "I am totally writing in my journal here."

That is way funny Tana! Don't worry. The "smart" comments eventually go away. Publish your blog in a book for less than $50 and then tell him about all the journaling done and money saved on scrapbooking...NOT THAT WE WOULD EVER REALLY STOP THAT! :)

It's not's a Hobby! :) Yep, that's what we tell ourselves!

I didn't know you didn't check Google Reader anymore...very interesting!

I NEED to get my blog book printed from last year, I can't wait to see how it turns out!

My dear Carrie-

I had to stop. I was getting lazy about it. Never checking actual blogs. Never leaving comments. I was scolded. I removed myself from the temptation! :)

I actually like it all on my blog better. One place to check. One click instead of clicking on each updated name and then clicking on their name to go to their blog. I know I know....LAZY! :)
