Blogoversary. Now that is a word that I did not know a year ago. That and tons of other blog lingo.
A few terms that come to mind:
BFF (Blog Friend Forever)
The list goes on and on. These are some of the funniest terms I've come across recently:
Blogstipation - writer’s block for bloggers
Blogathy - not wanting to post and not caring about it
Blogopotamus - a long long blog post
Blogorrhea - unusually high output of articles
Bleg - to use one’s blog to beg for assistance etc.
Hitnosis - refreshing your browser repeatedly to see if your hit counter or comments have increased
Blogorific = blogtastic - something which a blogger says is terrific
Sadly I think I'm guilty of some of the above terms. Humor me...tell me some of your favorite blog lingo.
So, back to my blogoversary. It is just 18 days away.
I know it is better to give than receive, but I'm going to be doing both. I'm all about balance.
For me? I've been working with a graphics person to add some new elements to my page. I'm keeping my header because I love it...all of those photos represent special things in my life. I actually won it in a giveaway and posted about it here (warning: that post is an example of a blogopotamus). You won't think you've landed on the wrong page by any means, there will just be some added features.
For you? You can expect my first giveaway ever. I'm so excited. By that time, I'm hoping that even my fellow Texans will be enjoying some cooler weather. Cooler weather means it will be time to check out the Starbucks menu to see what new drinks they are featuring this fall.
So, come back in 18 days if you want a chance at winning a Starbucks gift card. How much you ask?
Well, that depends on how much change I can come up with by cleaning out the car and underneath the couch cushions.
Christina, I know that one freaked you out! Meet Christina, who doesn't like sitting on the cracks between couch cushions for fear of what is lurking below...I just love that I know that little piece of trivia about her. Considering that this type of cleaning hasn't been done in...well, that would just be embarrassing if I told you...let's just say her fear would currently be substantiated at my house.
All that said, I think that all of my cleaning out should produce a good sized gift card. Whatever coins I find minus the 8.9% Coinstar fee. Coinstar is another justification of mine. I can turn my coins into a Starbucks gift card right there at the kiosk. So spending that 8.9% saves me a trip, which saves me gas, and ultimately saves me another $5 because I won't be tempted to try one of the new fall drinks.
I'm sure by then though that I will have justified that I need to try a drink or three just so I can steer you in the right direction in case you happen to be the winner. I'm only thinking about you of course.
