New and Exciting Websites for those with their heads in the Sand!

O.k. this isn't a cancer update but I didn't want to tell you all something. Thanks Kim Meyers for the very cool website of background wall paper. I have been looking for a website for a long time that had different wall paper. I am not very good with searching the Internet I guess because I couldn't find a website. I was on her blog the other day and it had a link to the coolest website full of background for blogs. So thank you I wanted to change it everyday. I think there is enough background options to do that. So figure give me if I am always changing. I love all the variety. If you are looking for different background for your blog the link is at the top of my blog.

And also thank you Alica. I got on your blog the other day which I haven't been on any one's blog in a long time and anyways I was and was reading Alica blog. She told me to get my head out of the sand. I am one of those that had not heard of Google reader. So I thought this Google reader sounded like just what I needed. So I went to www.googlereader to check it out. It took me a while to figure it out but oh I love it. It updates you when anyone on your list updates their blog. So you don't have to go to each website. I like Alica thinks this makes life so much easier. I can actually check to see what people are up to more often. So THANK YOU to you both.

During Thanksgiving my sister introduced my to stat counter that also has been fun. I can see how many people visit my blog each day. That has been fun to watch. So thank you to Bailey.

So I hope I am not the only one out there who hadn't heard of this websites.

I really like how your background isn't separate from your post and side bar. Its more like an actual blogger background than the myspace that that site typically shows. It looks great but I'm also partial to those shades.

I'm glad you've learned about google reader. I'm guilty of having about 170 feeds subscribed in mine that I actually do read. Its a bit of an addiction. But its so nice for keeping track of friends, family, and friend's family too.

Also, I'd check out google analytics. Its basically google's stat tracking program. Its free, and very intuitive and reliable. And separates page views from unique visitors, which is nice to know. Mine very by about 50% on normal days, meaning I have at least twice as many page views as individual visitors. And it also shows the most wanted stuff on the first page. So take a look and give it a try!

I am just getting used to this blogging thing too! I need a special lesson from Jessica one day after preschool!
Thanks for your update! I always want to ask you....but we are surrounded by preschoolers and parents when I see you! You always look great! Your face is always glowing!
I guess your number is 48!
I am glad to hear Cole is singing infront of his school mates! He was/is one of my favorite primary kids! I love him! Just like I love Kamden!
She has grown up so much this year! She is so bright and catches on to things so fast! She is one of my leaders! I am excited for my preschoolers to go to kindergarten to be challenged! We have been combinding letter sounds to make words! She is totally on that one! We are focusing on address and phone number and then I will teach them shoe tying! I will send a shoe tying card home for practice!
Thanks for all your kind words the other day on my blog! I needed to hear that! It was very sweet of you! I do my very best to teach all these sweet children the "Basics" before the big bad world of public school!
"Don't worry, Don't hurry, Do your best and flush the rest!!" My mom always said that to me! Love you, Rochelle! Don't worry! Just like the song, Kari Underwood...Jesus take the wheel!
