I'm Blogrollin', Yo

Now that I have these three capacious blog columns, I finally got around to adding a list of the blogs I like to check in on. Look over there, down to the right. If you don't see yourself on there, and you would like too, please lemme know. If I left you off, it is not a snub. Probably I was just about to add you when Hank screamed, "Mama, I'M A PIRATE WOBOT!" about two inches from my ear. Or if you ARE there and you don't want your name associated with this blog, let me know that too, but gently!

I am thinking, wow, that's a long list. Do I really read all those blogs? Yes, I do. And I've wanted to add a blogroll for a long time, because I like how it collects everything in one place and puts the most recently-updated at the top. I am weird in that I know how to use Google Reader, and even have a ton of blogs added to my subscriptions, but I still go around to people's blogs one by one, by hand. (By hand? I don't know. The old fashioned way?) So some of those folks over there are my friends, some are my brick-and-mortar friends, and some of them don't know I'm alive. That's okay.

I had time to sit and do this, because Laura seems to be an invalid today. It is mysterious. We had a very active Saturday, riding bikes at the park, kicking a ball around, playing and cartweeling, you name it. She had no complaints. Then last night, she complained that her leg hurt--kind of everything above her knee, it seems. I suspected that it might be a case of drama-titis, brought on by impending bedtime. But this morning, she didn't want to put any weight on it. I think it is a pulled muscle, from the way it has progressed. When she's stretched out on the couch, she is fine. It only hurts when she tries to use it. Matt carried her downstairs this morning, and she hasn't stirred from the sunroom couch. I guess if she doesn't start to perk up, I'll take her to the doctor.

So all that is to say, there's a blogroll! Enjoy your Sundays, friends.

Wow, that's quite the roll. I probably read the same amount but I'm *awfully* lazy about adding people onto the blogroll. Mostly because it sounds like bogroll. Which my spent-some-time-in-NZ brain is a not-classy term for toilet paper.

Ahem. Hope Laura feels better soon.

Thanks for including me! I'm heading over to check out some of these blogs.

Becky, thanks for "rolling" me! I am so flattered! When I figure out how to do it, you will be on mine. Right now I am having a lot of trouble w/my computer -- this is my 2nd attempt to get to your comments page. Time for a new one, I'm afraid.

Thanks again. You made my Sunday!

Woot woot, I made the list. Google Reader changed my life but it's a gift and a curse. Now I have the GR pressure looming over me all the time. Doing it by hand almost sounds like a good option anymore but then I'd probably miss someone and feel bad. Blogging is so stressful.

Thanks, Becky! Can't wait to check out all of your 'roll.

And I will always allow pop-ups from this site. Always. ;)

Pirate Robots!

I'm honored to be included! Thanks!

I hope Laura's leg is better, and I'm a huge fan of pirate wobots myself.

Thanks for the mention! I'll check out some of your other links - I see some I don't recognize.

Love the new 3 column look! Wow, you know how to use Google Reader???

Michele said...

Wow! I am so tickled this Mon morning! I am learning slowly but surely and you are inspiring!

Hope Laura feels better soon. And I'm honored to be on your blog roll! I find new bloggers by seeing who the people I admire read -- I guess it's the cyber equivalent of word-of-mouth. Do we call this word-of-mouse??? Sorry! I obviously need more caffeine before I talk anymore.

I need to do a blog roll. Next time I redo my layout maybe I'll make that happen. For now I am also checking out blogs the old fashioned way. I have you bookmarked.
