A "ta-da!" from this Rockin' Girl


I usually feel like I'm flying under the radar. So I can't tell ya how excited I am that Hunny Bunny singled me out as a "Rockin' Girl Blogger". I don't know how "Rockin'" I really am (my friends who tease me for my appreciation of Yanni's music would probably find me being described as such quite amusing!), but this is my very first blog-award-thingie (what ARE these things called?) so I'm very honored.

The crocheted granny-square baby blanket it finished. And it's already found its new home. A friend stopped by as I was finishing it. She just happens to be expecting a baby girl (her third child) and she didn't think the blanket is as unpretty as I do. And it really is quite soft. So I'm glad I finished the squares up as a blanket. It feels good to cross a UFO off the list.

Now to completely change the subject...

Will you do me a little favor, please? It'll just take a second, I promise.

Go to your blogger dashboard. Click "edit profile". See the third item down? Please check that box next to "Show my email".

This will make it so that when you leave comments on blogs, the blogger can respond to you via email.

I know, I know. Not everyone wants their email address "out there". That's fine. But it's so easy to set up an email address at yahoo.com or gmail.com to use for things where you want to keep your main email address private.

If you aren't aware of how it works, when you leave a comment on a blog the blog's owner is sent an email containing your comment. This is how I read them. I don't go to my blog to read them.

I don't reply to every comment left, but I do answer all questions posed to me.

It is frustrating though to read the comment-email, type out a heartfelt reply, only to have the reply returned as undeliverable. If you check the "Show my email" box you will receive your replies.

So that's my psa for the day. :)

Beautiful blanket! Are you doing the craft fair at the end of the month Dannielle?? I am. I'm working my tail off trying to get my goodies finished.

I'm glad you got it up. I love that blanket it looks snuggly. I changed my email from private. I had no idea I'd done that. Thanks.

Well shoot, I thought my email *was* showing, but sure enough when I checked it was marked private. D'oh!
