TypePad Featured Blog Award!
About a month ago, I received an email from a real nice guy named Jonathan. It started off, "Dear Kitty Cruiser, We are so excited to inform you that your TypePad Blog has been selected to be featured on TypePad’s homepage. We chose your blog because of its unique subject matter, thoughtful posts, and engaging design – everything we look for in a Featured TypePad blog." It ended with "On behalf of all of us at Six Apart and TypePad, congratulations on being chosen as a Featured blogger!"
Well, I gotta tell you, I was pretty darned excited about that one! When I got done patting myself on the back a little harder than I should ~ calm down Donna, calm down ~ I was over-the-top freaked out and almost had to take another Xanax! This is a BIG deal. They only give out 5 per week out of trillions of blogs...well, all right...not trillions. I'm exaggerating a bit. But still! Now I can put my "TypePad Featured Weblog" badge on my blog and flaunt it a little, OK, a lot! I had to wait until today to see it online and it came out real nice, if I do say so myself. Go take a peek, it's awesome! (I didn't write all those cool things, Jonathan did. What a great guy, huh?) And then he said they'd be sending me a T-shirt as well!
Anyway...Now that I'm done blushing, I'm gonna go take a pill, do the dishes and try to figure out how in the world to get this stinkin' badge to be a fixture on my blog. I have to confess, I know nothing about computers. I'm a baker, chef and wine-o. My daughter Erika, from Stampin' Mama can take the credit for setting up my blog. (pssst! I just noticed she has a Give-Away going on until 7/7!) She talked me into it and took care of all the details. Even now, I have to call her to put badges on my blog! Ahhhh, what a life!
