Welcome to the meeting. Feel free to get coffee and bagel from the coffee bar over there. The fresh fruit...well, I trashed it. Didn't look too fresh. My assistant, Patience, is handing out agendas. Excuse the crumpling and chewed corners, some might still be damp. Sorry, Persistence wanted to help.
* Would you like to join my Good Blogs Book, Music, and Art review community?
* Are you in my favorites?
* Bloggy identity crisis
I got an email the other day from The GoodBlogs. "Hi, it said, uhhh, are you okay? Your inbox is stacking up with messages. Why don't you go read your mail and save our server some space, eh?"
People sent me messages at The Good Blogs???
I quickly clicked over to check. Holy mercy: messages! One from the famous The Lovely Mrs. Davis herself.
"Hi," all the messages said, "You have a community...about reviewing books, music and art? We'd like to join."
Great scott. So I do. It sort of fell off my radar along with my own review blog---neglected geez louise how embarassing---back in January. I have been thinking I need to get back on the wagon with that and now I am motivated. I think.
So listen, if you'd like more link referrals to your blog (in which you regularly discuss and review the arts) or a review blog you have (not to be snobbish, but it needs to review books, music, art, that sort of thing) let me know. I'll add your URL in.
Also, after a dinosaur's age, I finally set up Technorati Favorites (thanks to J at Oh, The Joys who lit a fire under my rear). Okay, I am in the process of adding blogs. I also started using BlogRoll so my blogroll on the sidebar has changed, and is dynamic---will show Fresh! when one of you updates.
How cool is that! And I can go scan my favorite blogs in this main window. Quit laughing. I know you all knew this and set it up about 100 years ago. Some of us get electricity a little later out here in the boonies, okay!
So slowly but surely I am adding in people to my favorites---you comment and make sure I've got you on, okay? It requires a lot of concentration. LOL
I've also been sort of jonesing for a blog name change. When my husband created this blog he called it the artful flower. I know why he did that but boy did I not like that name. So I just changed it fast, having no idea the implications. Now that I feel more established, I'm thinking of changing to something more appropriate. Would you all hate me and unlink me?
I think people use my name more than the blog name, though. So I don't think a blog name change will make me too much of a stranger.
No, I don't have anything in mind. Yet.
Okay, I'm opening the floor to questions, discussion, and comments...
