Moving can shove it (shove what....) Anyway...
For two solid days straight, we did the damn thang. Before sunrise to waaaayyyy after sundown it sucked the life from me, the hubs and our darling offspring, though I promised myself I wouldn't get all "listen to my moving story" on you, so thats that. Plus, I have way more important issues to address. Like socks.
Where. Does. Half. Of. Each. Pair. Go. When. I. Launder. The. Little. Bastards?
And my toilet phone. The keys have taken some major hits, and instead of typing what I *want* to say, they say what they *think* I should say. Like when Candyland *wants to effing say "I'll C U later," the C magically becomes F and changes the whole effing meaning. Not cool, toilet phone. Not cool.
No seriously. Blogging. Keeping within the spirit of what I've seen over the last few days, I want to give you some "yay you" tips for gaining new followers and maintaining a fresh, sparkly blog. The Candyland way.
Tips for being one of the
~Don't be a dbag. It's a lot harder than it sounds. I've been one on many occasions, but when I blog about it, I try to leave out all the major MAJOR major dbag baggage. Blogs should be d-bag-free. People like people who are real, people. Be yourself, NOT her or that one over there. If youre not unique and not you, you're a dbag (sometimes Candyland has to dole out tough love) (It's for your own good. Promise). Not sure what this means? Read GUTS AND THE DBAG INCIDENT OF '07.
~Get to the point. Sure, I tend to ramble on and on and on and on and (omg shut up, CL) about the delicious, delightful, insightful, compassionate, (insert more and more fabulous words) about peeps like Matt BR80. BUT, my blog has a purpose. I think. Does it? Maybe it doesn't. Who knows. There are some blog posts that are the length of my offspring and honestly, I don't have the time or attention span to...hey what's that over there?
~Lose some weight. Like all the gadgets and music players and this and that and map of the world and key to the golden treasure and family tree. They clutter up all your biznass and it burns my eyes. I want to see your words. Don't take away from the beauty of that.
~Be as loverly to your commenters/followers as they are to you. Basically, do unto others, and all that crap.
~Givegivegive and you shall receive. In the blog world, in life...because were all just people, dudes. People, looking to connect with other people. And that's a beautiful thing. Speaking of (PLUGS <3), hop over to Sheri's blog to sign up for the coolest of blog fests, and a big thanks to Karen G for hosting an amazing virtual BBQ!!!Woo for new peeps!
Be kind, not rude. Be real, never ever fake. Be honest, don't hide. Be humble, not boastful. Be mine. Because I'm in love with every single one of you. Honestly. More than BR80 (shhhh...don't tell him).
So there you have it. Follow these tips and get about 298 followers in no time (9 months), and 298 friends for life. Now, off to find the runaway laundry while I throw my phone in time out.
Until tomorrow, friends, if you could move one more time, where would it be? And would you say it can suck your ass?
