Random Thoughts, a Button, and a Coupon Code!!

Passing it on...

I have been thinking a lot lately. I know, a dangerous thing. And I have come to the conclusion, that I really don't like being a self-centered blogger. Life isn't always about me, you know. I'm not saying I haven't enjoyed the attention... because I have. And I feel totally blessed to have gained so many readers in such a short time. So I want to give back to all of you. I have really, really enjoyed doing the blog Features. I think I will keep doing it... but only once or twice a month. Not only Daddy blogs, but every kind of blogs. There are some great ones out there, and I am most likely talking about YOURS! My readers. My fans! I sit here in my computer chair day after day in awe of the wonderful people out there. And what is more shocking and humbling is that most of them are my followers... yeah, that's right, they follow me. When they have so much more to give. What tears me apart is that they don't get the attention they deserve. Now, don't roll your eyes, I am being honest here. No, I am not full of cra... poop (remember family friendly blog here!). I really mean it. But at the same time, I want to make every feature count. I want to send traffic every one's way. Isn't that what it is all about? So here is what I am going to do. When I get 200 followers, I will start featuring your blogs. Those of you who comment here, and participate in my other features will be the ones I choose from. I will also be giving out a spiffy award -- an original Mama Nut... I know you can't wait to see it!! LOL.

So spread the word and let's get the traffic up here, and then I will send it your way. Your blog feature will remain at the top in my sidebar for a 2-4 weeks (I haven't decided yet) for all to see. Right now I get about 100 visitors a day -- that is a hundred pair of eyes that will see your button... and maybe by then even more! Even if you get a lot of traffic now, more is always better, right?? Or... do you think I should just shut up and keep to myself???

Anyway, moving on...

Due to popular demand, I made this button, snag it if you want. For those of you who are new to this blog see this post: Parenting with The Force.


I was going to put Daddy Nut as Yoda -- but he said I couldn't. Party pooper.

Ok, so you know how technologically challenged I am. For some reason, I thought I was ALREADY following your blog (I could've sworn I clicked the Follow button - sheesh). Anyway, I am now REALLY a follower. ...sheepish grin...

And I'm snagging the "Force" button. I voted for that one! :-)
