OK. Amazon is not exactly on my shit list, but they have ticked me off pretty well. So far, I have my new camera CF card, a new lens filter, a spare battery, a new camera bag...but no camera. The ONE item I made sure the site said was "in stock" and it hasn't shipped yet. Argh! The last time I looked the shipping estimate said January 28th - February 12th. WHAT?! I have to wait a MONTH to play with my new toy?!?! In what universe is that "in stock"!
In the meantime, I'll just have to continue to use the old Canon point-n-shoot. It's served me pretty well, so far.
Waiting for a Strike
Tyler shows off his unique bowling style at his pal Liam's birthday party this weekend. Shhh, we won't mention the fact that he is totally over the foul line.
On to another topic. I recently made a comment in Ree's "Confessions of a Pioneer Woman" blog and made the mistake of checking the email me if there is a response to this comment option. What I got was an email EVERY TIME someone commented on that post after I did. My lord, how does that woman have time to pee, never mind do anything else all day. I was staggered at the number of comments one pot roast recipe posting received. Wow!
I was also beset with a serious case of blog envy. I don't want THAT many readers, honestly. But a few more would be nice. Yes, yes - I've read John Scalzi's advice on how to increase the number of readers to your blog. I'm pretty sure that Ree doesn't have time to visit hundreds of blogs each day. I know I don't. I'm open to some more ideas.
What I know I need to do is take a serious look at the blog itself. Ree's blog has a very appealing template. Is mine too blah? Ree posts just about every day. I only post when I have something interesting to say. Am I boring? I don't want to be boring.
Help! I could use some honest opinions. What do you want to see/hear more of? What is appealing about this blog? What is dull and uninteresting? More photos? More videos? More mental breakdowns? Be frank. You won't hurt my feelings.
My new year's resolution is to transform this humble little journal into a rock star personal blog by the end of the year. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :-)
