McMommy goes POW!


I have spent quite a bit of my recovery time on the laptop and getting into blog reading. It's kind of like therapy without the bill. And it's addictive. About a month ago, I happened upon what is now one of my favorite blogs in the blogosphere - The McMommy Chronicles. McMommy is adorable, sweet, genuine, absolutely hilarious, and has two of the cutest little boys you will ever see. In fact, I'm quite sure that if I met her in person, we'd be great friends (or at least I'd beg her to share a glass of wine with me). We even share the same lame-o thyroid!

McMommy recently started doing POW Fridays. What is POW, you ask? Post of the week! It's an opportunity for us bloggers (yes, it's my 2nd post and I will dare to call myself a blogger) to link our fave post of the week to hers. As she describes it (perfectly), it's like window shopping the blogs! You just click on one of the links and it will take you right to that blogger's post. What a fab way to discover more blogs to become addicted to. Did I mention blogs are addictive?

So, in the spirit of my learning, I *think* I actually linked my first blog post to her POW post for this week. Check it out - not only will you meet to marvelous McMommy, but I dare you not to find more blogs to add to your blogroll! Speaking of blogrolls, my next task is to start a list of links to my fave blogs so you can see what inspired me to take the plunge and go for it myself. In the meantime, if you have made it here, please leave a comment! And for all of you avid bloggers, please leave ADVICE on how I can up the coolness factor here. I consider myself to be fairly computer savvy, but some of this stuff is just downright confusing! Yeah, I already managed to find myself a template I liked, and I can probably figure out the widget thing, but take a look at the bottom of my blog - there is a big rectangle I can NOT figure out how to get rid of! Like I said, I'm learning . . .

How EXCITING!! I am the first to post to your most excellent looking blog! Clearly you know a little something to not only start off with such a cute site, but pictures and POW!

Wish I had some good advice, but I'm new to blogging too. However, I have been a smart a$$ my WHOLE life!

Congrats!

Ok, I wish I could go back and do things a little different with my blog. I've even been thinking of starting a new secret public blog (yeah, I know that makes no sense). Take it from someone who "thinks" she has a stalker, If I started over, I would definately try to be a little more anonymous. Of course that's totally a personal decision too.
Otherwise, even though I've had my blog for a while, I've really just gotten started, so no advice other than to play with things until they work.

I totally added you to my list.]
