nine things or so

Thanks to the SITS ladies, I ran across a post recently called “9 things your Blog Site should contain”…well, let’s see how I’ve done.

1. Have a well-designed blog header. –looks up— I had a prettier banner, but I had to change it to fit a new blog theme and get my tagline back. Picture matches, though one day I’d like to change it to a picture of pears, all info there. So, check!

2. A tasteful background – it used to be green, to match my original banner, but the white matches my button banner. Although, I could change it to tan, purple or pink. Hmm…we’ll revisit this thought later.

3. A consistent color theme…well, it matches.  So, it works.

4. A profile with 3-5 sentences. Oh yeah, feel free to look “inside” me, but be careful, I’m ticklish. ;D

5. Pages and categories. –looks to the left— In the mold, you can look up posts by the month, or pick a category below of  a topic of interest. That’s convenient, I think.

6. Social media. Oh, look at the right! I see site visitors, a link to follow me on Twitter, sign up to get the blog posts in your email and one can even play with my dying neopet (poor thing, but it’s still cute). Oh shoot…my Pinterest link isn’t –digs it up for adding later—.

7.  A list of related posts. They’re below every post on this site when one opens up the post on its own page.

8. A list of popular posts. Well, I had them on the right, but took them off because I had so many links for one to see.. –sits down cross-legged in a huff—So there.

9. A list of archives. Hey, I already covered this one. They’re In the Mold. (Yes, it’s a play on words, in case one is wondering. It could be the stuff that forms on bad food or where you put the batter to bake in the oven. I’ll let my readers decide,)

That’s it. Oh look, I think I pass the test! Yippee-doo-dah day. Hehe What’s next?

Oh, In other news…
It’s no secret that like many other kids, I grew up reading books by SE. Hinton growing up, and to this day The Outsiders is one of my favorite books (and movies). I’ve read about all she’s written, and enjoy saying Rumblefish because it just sounds fun. Anyway… GoodReads had cool chat this week with this author!! Unfortunately, I was so excited my tongue tied into knots! I said as much via my tweets, and guess what?! She responded to me. Oh, happy day, calloo-callay! That kind of made my day. Oh, how easily amused I can be sometimes, but that’s a good thing, eh. Stay gold, everybody.

In a weird note, I’m once again reminded how one should always proofread before sending. Above, I had originally typed “9 things your bong site should contain”. Oh my, I didn’t even realize that kind of stuff was on my subconscious mind. Actually, it’s more likely because I watch funny comedians like Craig Ferguson and Bill Maher.and I read blogs like TheBloggess.com.  Now, that would make for an interesting banner to the site. At least, it’d get people talking. Hmm. ;D

P is for Pear Lady!

Recently, I was tagged with the name meme by a friend on Facebook. I got such a kick out of it that over to my blog it had to come. Consider yourself forewarned on this one: it’s a tricky bugger to play depending on your name. One of my friends (of whom I tagged) called it the “evil meme”, though she ended up doing quite well, too, as I predicted. LOL Anyway, here we go…

You cannot use any word twice and you can’t use your name for the boy/girl name question.

1. What is your name: Pear Lady

Hey, I’m Alive!

Welcome to the middle of the week!

Just in case one had a doubt, I’m still alive. (hey, stop booing already before I swat you – haha) I’ve finally gotten off my butt and back to my blog. Who says miracles don’t happen? ;P I’d tell you where I’ve been, etc. but I’d rather not bore you to tears…well, more than usual. (geez, I’m a barrel of sarcastic wit today, eh…watch out for falling rainbows.) You think it’s bad here, you should’ve seen me on Facebook. Lord help me if I would Twitter, too. ;P

Going through another quiz site today…took some of the more interesting ones (well, of what I’m willing to disclose *wink*).
Check it out…I’m a family friendly blog…(gag me, dagnabbit…it must be all the sugar I eat – hah.)

But, I do have links to some people who do curse more frequently sprinkled through the blog. (no worries, I usually say when) See…I’m an equal opportunity blogger. 😛

It appears I’m getting the “right amount” of caffeine, too:

Oh, goody…I can have more. *devilish grin*

It also appears I may be good for those people with ADD or low attention spans:

We need to remember that thought the next time I go off on a rambling spell. LOL

Like a good little girl scout, I’m prepared…well, sort of…

*Sings “I will survive…hey, hey!”*

Well, isn’t that all lovely. My, I feel like the Church Lady from Saturday Night Live…well, with one exception: I still have a desire to smash the heck out of my keyboard, for it’s been holding my y’s hostage lately. (Haven’t yet…a friend sent me some to keep me from killing my board – isn’t that a nice thing to do…heh).

Your turn to entertain…*opens comments* Happy hump day!
PS. As I predicted from the get-go: American Idol finals…David A. vs David C. Hah…too easy. LOL
PPS. Rest in peace, Ron Stone. You were an awesome Texan-by-choice / reporter / news anchor (among other things).

In case you aren’t aware, yes, I am one of those people that enjoys grammar-based activities. [“Shout out”:  Red Ink, Inc.!] Scrabble has been really good to me lately [online]. Spelling has been a passionate hobby for more than half my life. How could resist this little blogthing?

Gone Political

I’ve done it now. I’ve taken a quiz recently that shows which presidential candidate(s) one aligns with according to current U.S. political issues.

Here’s the quiz link  – http://www.electoralcompass.com/v/wsj

My results: Closest in views to Hillary Clinton and furthest from Mike Huckabee.

I’m not sure if I should tell my family about this one. It might frighten some of them horribly. LOL Seriously, politically I keep flipping between the Democratic candidates: Barack Obama, John Edwards, and some Hillary. (I’m usually an Independent, but I must be a bit frustrated with the whole economy lately or something…making me a bit like comedian Bill Maher – LOL).

Who do you like? Do tell, nicely of course. There’s plenty of warring factions around, and I don’t really want to start another one. But, it can be interesting to see how various readers/friends of this blog align, if it all (besides being a reader of this blog).
