Couple Things

Thanks to Jackie, who did my last blog layout, I now have a button.  My very own button...just like everyone else in blogland.  I'll never be cutting edge, but at least I'm sorta caught-up instead of left behind.


You can get the code on the right sidebar



So.  If you would like to post the cute little button on your blog, I'd more than love it.  And, if you are already cool and have a button, please let me know so I can post it on mine...because it's all the rage.  Or so I've heard.

She also tweaked my header for me, and it makes me happy.  Feel free to let it make you happy to.

One last thing.  The other day I tried to comment on my own blog and I realized HOW COMPLETELY ANNOYING those little pop-up boxes are that make you type in the squirrel-y letters.  I tried half a dozen times and still couldn't get it right...which then made me smash my computer (only in my head, of course.)

In an effort to reduce your stress, and mine, I deleted the need for that dumb box...only to find out it does serve a purpose in blocking spammy annoying comments.  Which finally leads me to my point:  I enabled comment moderation.  Which means none of the comments post until I allow them to.  I've never had that enabled on my blog before and I just wanted to give you a heads up so that you didn't try posting a comment only to find that it didn't appear, and so you post it again, and nothing, until you finally realized it was moderated.  

I *may* have learned that from experience.  

Happy Friday to you!

  1. Just wanted to stop by and say it is nice to see you blogging, I enjoy reading your thoughts. I don't remember how I found you but I've been a follower for a long time. :)

    I get a lot of spam comments too. I thought about turning the text thingy on.

    Have a happy weekend!

  2. Love that you turned on comment moderation . . . it is set to ON on my blog too! Wouldn't be without it!

    I don't care for those little boxes that pop up either . . . so glad you took yours off!

    Love your little Bloggy Button . . . will have to add it tomorrow.

  3. 1. I just put your button on my blog, and the polka dots are making me so happy.

    2. I have a new blog button too - it is under all for our family photos on the right side bar. No pressure or anything though. ;)

    3. I think I may do what you did and just enable the comment moderation thing. I hadn't even thought of that. I get TONS of spam every single day from fake blog comments. But I kind of want to swear when I try to leave comments and can't figure out the cotton pickin' letters and numbers. And I don't swear, ever.

    4. I had never heard that song before and I think it is a new fav!

  5. You might "moderate" the comment I just left, and not publish it, because I said "cotton pickin" in it.

  6. Happy Friday to you too, but its Sunday now and the weekend is half over, so you can save the Happy Friday greeting for the next one! Happy Sunday!

  7. Thank you for taking the frustration away regarding comments! I would type those letters over and over and over and rarely get them right. Usually I just figured my comments weren't meant to be and gave up! ;)

Thanks for commenting, you make blogging fun. :) If your comment doesn't appear right away, it's because it's awaiting moderation, but it will show up soon!
