MLK Day + blog re-do fail!

So MLK Day is coming to a close.  For me MLK Day means, in essence, that we all must remember tolerance and equality.  I love this image from LOLcats:

I realize my last post regarding Twitter and Facebook was not very tolerant, and in fact sounds, in retrospect, a little bit whiny and somewhat snotty.  Forgive me.  I can be a little whiny and snotty at times.  And I am duly humbled, as I realize that both Twitter and Facebook can be used for good!  I've already tweeted about the give-away from Beneath My Heart, as well as Christie Repasy's 5th Studio & Vintage Marketplace!  

Now about that blog re-do ...

Fail!  Yes, I failed.  I did do a tiny bit of reworking, like moving around some of the give-aways, which are now listed in chronological order, with the one ending soonest listed at top.  I also relabeled "My Blog Roll" to say "My Favorite Blogs" (because "blog roll" sounded unfriendly, and I like the sound of the new label better) and my "Followers" are now labeled "Friends" (because I hope we all become friends and I really dislike the word "follower" for some reason)!  Accordingly, "Follow Me on Twitter" now says "Come Tweet With Me!," again, I just like the way it sounds better. 

This blogging thing takes up A LOT of time, so I am going to have to do the reworking of this thing in baby steps, especially because I have no clue what I am doing!

Bear with me, please.  Until next time.

Hey Kimberly,
When I tried to email you back through your comment, it would let me. I tried twice, but nothing. Here is what I wrote:

I am so excited for you! You are going to love your Silhouette! There are so many things that it can do. I still have a lot to learn, but I am having fun playing with it.
All of your projects sound fun too. I want to try some type of clothing project in the future. :)
Thank you for using my promo code! I should get credit for it. I will definitely check on it.
Please let me know what you make with your Silhouette, and if there is a project that you really like, share it with me and I will share it with my readers!
Thanks again!

Hi Kimberly,

Thank you again for visiting my blog, you are just so sweet and say such kind things...not to mention funny as can be. Your collection of vases sound wonderful!!!
I love all my cherubs and art work, I hope one day you have the one you are dreaming of having. What are you studying in school? Dont worry about the time it takes getting it done is what counts.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad, I lost my best friend in the whole world when my mom passed. I moved to Georgia to be closer to her and the day I arrived with my truck she passed away. It is hard and I do think we ever get over it, I just hope so day the pain gets better. Ok, I'm going to stop talking now. Keep up the good work in school and your blog. I can not wait to see the pictures of the furniture you spoke of, it sounds wonderful... Have a great night.

I love that image of the kitties... too cute!
This blogging business can be tricky at times. Be patient... it will come to you. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Maybe I can help... no promises though, because I'm still learning new stuff every day... lol! ;-)
Have a great day!
