In my life, the things in my title go hand in hand.
Let’s start out on a sweet, fun note, shall we? I’ve got 2 new pages on here. 🙂 Look up top…
Cloth Diapering 101 takes you on a tour of cloth diapers, from terms to travel, from the best to the worst. I plan on updating this quite often as I buy cloth diapers quite often. Thankfully they are a “necessity.” ::cough::
Friday’s Featured Blogger is just that – someone I’m going to feature on there for a whole week, along with link up’s on the home page to their blog. It’s an interview with (or without, your choice) pictures that explains a little about you, your family, your blog, etc. It even has it’s very own button this time.
Because I am getting pretty darn nifty at this technology stuff.
Another little ditty – my dear friend Law Momma from Spilled Milk is doing a fundraiser to help the Grady family. Their little boys Drew and Trent were both diagnosed with late infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (LINCL), or Batten Disease.
Both little boys. 🙁 This breaks my heart. Can you imagine what their mom and dad deal with every day?
So at this point, most of us are like, “How sad, wish I could help, we can hardly spare anything though. I’d be embarrassed to give so little.”
No. This isn’t about that. Honestly, Law Momma is asking for $5. We can all spare that. On top of it, you are entered to win one of her prizes for every $5 you give. Right now, before you click off and just think about them all day, make it a point to do something. I am. No, it won’t be $200 like I want to give, but I’ll give up something (like buying cloth diapers, going out to dinner, buying Starbucks) to give a little.
Thanks. I know we can make this family be overwhelmed by the generosity of complete strangers that were touched by their story.
Quick side note: Not everything needs to have 10 exclamation points after it. I don’t understand this. My Facebook wall is filled with !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and honestly, it’s a little hard to believe you’re that excited 24-7 about everything. Yes, grocery shopping can be fun. Not that fun.
Also – Twitter hashtags. OMG. If your hashtag is longer than your actual tweet, you need to rethink it. Because tweeting, “My kid is asleep #omgnohesnotreallybutkindaandilovenapssoimgladhesoutforawhile” is out.of.control. Simma. Keep it simple enough that we can actually read what you wrote.
And no, these were not directed at anyone in particular at all. I can’t even think of names because so many people are doing this. Just general statements. 🙂
Be sure to head over to Law Momma’s site.
