  3. I've earned my "called someone wrong name" and "too nervous, cancelled plan" badges way too many times :)

  4. Ohhh that first image made me smile from ear to ear! I love that :D And thank you for including my wreath :) I'm flattered!

  5. I am going to check out those posts on how to come up with subjects and on why people care about blogging right away! They sound very interesting, and as I'm not a fan of that IFB website, maybe these articles will be of more value to me :) Thank you for sending me to them! :D x

  6. Hey, thanks for including me! And I love the cats full of bees!

  7. No worries, I hope they are useful. I used to be a member of IFB but I quit recently (although for some reason they still haven't taken me off their email list) have you had a look at the Better Blogger Network? Their advice is along the same lines as most blogging advice, but their forums are actually quite useful (and not 99% follow me I'll follow you type thing) xo

  8. oh yay! so glad you liked the bow tie and plaid outfit! and its made my day to be on your list :-) xx

  9. I love those awkward merit badges! I think I've just about earned all of them ahaha
