Sharing some blog love

For the next two weeks, the SITS ladies are having a Spring Fling to help blog journalists like myself become better with design and networking. I signed up last week for this Fling. Unfortunately, I neglected to check my email yesterday, so the event started already and I’m playing catch-up. First I caught up by linking my web site on their page (check it: #550!), and did today’s task of connecting to Twitter.

550 (and counting, I’m sure), that’s a –lot— of links! How lucky am I to be amongst them! The coolest part (so far), I’ve found some ladies from Texas already, and another book blogger to boot. I felt compelled to share them with you all today as well:

Wow…I love the design on this site. Great job to its owner, Taylor! I see by her latest post at the moment that she’s a book challenge blogger, too (might have to do that challenge as well), though of course, that’s not all she has to say. Ultra-liking this blog.

I love Nessa’s blog button, very like something I would create professionally. This blog could stimulate my make-money-with-your-blog impulse. Therefore, I must pay attention. And, those bras she’s opining about at the moment are uber-cute; wish I could have gotten that free sample!

Rachel’s site just stuck out to me because of a mutual love for books…so another one to watch to nurture my passion for reading (uh-oh….LOL). I see a review on her children’s reviews for a book on my current TBR list (Agent Auggie Spinoza)…cool.

Only 547 to go [insert wide-eyed look and a squeal of OMG!]….unless more decide to hook up with us all. Perhaps, that next person could be you. Click on the SITS logo to see more details / sites. And, if you are participating, do leave a comment so we can squee together. (okay, maybe not squee…we’ll leave that to the little piggy going home. He-he). Cya in cyberspace, dear readers!

Blog Party Across the WWW

**Beep, beep, beep**
We break from our regular programming here at Slices From the Pear Lady to P-A-R-T-Y! Yes, that’s right It’s once again time to dust off your boots, grab a glass of whatever (might I suggest some of this lovely margarita, or for those “driving by” a Dr Pepper), a dish of ice cream (Bluebell), and dance the week away as part of the Ultimate Blog Party! 😀

First, for the new folks around here, and for those people that may have forgotten or just need a refresher, allow me to introduce myself…I am The Pear Lady. I’m not a mom [yet], BUT I’ve taken care of lots of kids throughout the years, and am a kid at heart (In spite of my constantly aging body – LOL). Where I got the name is a trade secret, known only to certain members of the FBI, CIA (and only because they’re listening in on my phone calls), and local friends. By the way, have I told you yet that I’m slightly sarcastic and have a bit of an imagination at times? Oh good, I just did. ;P

Look! The daily news has just come in and what-do-you-know, it’s all about me! Check it out:

Oh, how I love when there’s such good news in the paper. How about you? 😉

I’ve also found this cool map to explain how a Texan sees the world. It’s not exactly “politically correct”, but it’s good for a grin or two. (And, it’s proof that Texans can have a sense of humor about themselves. LOL) You can learn more about this map and its artist at the Pentagram.

What’s a party without music? How about some American.Idol! By way of Idolfanatic4, we have for our listening pleasure, the performances of this season’s contestants, and more! Okay, so it’s not a rodeo performance like at last year’s party post. And, some of these guys and gals are not that great, but some are good for a listen, once or twice. 😉

It’s time to wrap up this party here, but it doesn’t have to end. If you’re interested in continuing the party, join in by clicking below…
