I have a few items to check off this morning here on the blog and in *real life*, so it will be a quick post.
1. T is having surgery this morning to have a cyst removed from his back.
He'll be home for 2 weeks. And then I'll need 2 weeks to recover from that. 'Nuff said. Please do keep us in your prayers today.
2. We're on for the 5 Reasons Why My Blog Rocks party tonight.
MckLinky will go up tonight after 10 pm (ET). Please feel free to copy this little button for your post. Or just link up. Whatever you feel like doing.
3. Speaking of why YOUR blog rocks, I got a few comments along the lines of "I don't think my blog really rocks, but this is a great idea for a party."
That's sort of the point, my friends! It took me a few minutes to think of 5 reasons why my little old blog is a nice spot, but I did come up with a few. Be creative!! You don't have to have 3000 Followers or a new post twice a day to have a great blog.
Do you post tutorials with lots of pictures? Do you enjoy writing to encourage others or share your faith with the world? Are you a good photographer? Are you an honest blogger who doesn't mind sharing her faults if it will help another person in his/her own life? Do you make a point to return comments in a timely manner?
These are all things that (in my opinion!)) can make a blog a great place to visit! So...think hard and link up here some time in the next day or so. I hope you'll stop by.
4. In other news, I am working with a design company as I type this to get a new, clean look for this spot.
Don't worry! I want Serenity Now to have the same fun feel and the same fun posts, but I need a cleaner and less cluttered look for the blog. I hope to reveal the new look and a new sponsor or two soon! You can still expect regular posts with some new parties here. Just don't freak out if you click over and it looks a little different, 'kay?
5. Speaking of parties, mark your calendars:
Link up with your Dilemmas or Solutions in or around your home/garden and get some feedback from blogging friends on February 10th.
And in March, get ready to share your Progress on March 10th...no matter how small (mine might be just going through some comments and making a few choices on paint and fabric).
That's all for now!
I hope to *see* you here tonight, linking up to share your favorite things about your blog!
