- Part of my new organizational notebook includes a section on blogging. It's supposed to help you develop short and long-term goals for your blog, manage ideas and basically just help take your blog to the "next level." I still blog primarily for myself, as a journal, but I also do want to use this blog to its fullest potential, without becoming commercial and impersonal. So it's been a good exercise.
The first step I took was to purchase my domain name. So, if you'll check your little browser bar up there, you'll notice the .blogspot is no longer there. I can't lie, it was pretty exciting. :)
- I finally got my (almost) last amazon purchase in this week:
- Have you heard the latest Disney news? Apparently they're working on a deal with James Cameron and adding an Avatar-themed section to Animal Kingdom park. My initial reaction? "Do you fall asleep halfway in?" My later reaction: "It'll be that much faster to go through Animal Kingdom, now."
- The most popular thing I've ever posted on facebook:
- Oh, I have some exciting news! My fabulous cousin Michelle has her own blog now! "Fabulous" is no exaggeration, and she will have you in stitches with the stories of her little family. Hop on over and give her some BB love!
- Don't forget to enter my giveaway!
- And, last but not least, I am super-dee-duper excited for the weekend! Primarily because tomorrow is going to be so much fun. We're having a game-day party with some of our great friends, Jessica and her family. I'm pretty pumped.
Not least of which because, in case you missed it, OU saved the Big XII this week. I wish I had had time to write a post about it earlier, but it was pretty obvious from the get-go that OU's statement of "wanting a stable conference" was a bluff to force the Big XII to make the necessary changes. And today, those changes were made. Beebe was resigned, all member schools committed to staying for the next 6 years, an expansion committee was established, and multiple teases were made as to other big changes in the making.
And OU's President, Head of Athletics and Head football coach got to make the announcements. That's a big deal, folks. A super big deal. I have a feeling the Big XII's best days are ahead.
- Have a great weekend!!
BTW, I got all of that nail polish, and the spice rack holding them, almost free. I won a few through a giveaway, had a couple I bought 3 or 4 years ago, but all the rest - most of them - I got using Amazon giftcards I won through Swagbucks.
