I got a code to enter here for my badge and it's not working so I hope they show us how in the next Bloggiesta challenge.

This was the first challenge I have ever taken part in as a blogger so I am not so worried about the next one and will be more prepared next time and hopefully do better.
Another problem-I am in SA and could not really work out what time 8 am Sunday was for me actually ok excuses excuses!!!


  1. I think you are doing great, you're almost done.
    Good luck for your next challenge :)

  2. You made some good progress on your goals. As much as I got done I feel like I still have a long way to go.

  3. Hey Lazyking if you weren't posting such funny stuff on your blog for me to read I could have made that extra post you know.???
    Nicole thanks I am going to keep working on these till it's done and then start a new to do list.

  4. Hey Hon..

    That's a hell of a lot.. I just went by the original list - as I was on top of a lot of things on my blog..

    But needed a regime to get me to finish up some things - which I did..

    I am doing a blog crawl to catch up on tip and tricks - you never know when they will come in handy..


  5. Hey E.H.
    I also still want to find out how some blogs have the followers gadget but yet don't show the number of followers.How do they do that?anybody out there got the answer............

  6. I'll email - the how to..

    hope i explain it properly


  7. Yes please E>H> I would really appreciate it.

  8. Hi Yvette, I'm tired just reading the list! I would have so many unchecked things for quite some time! I am amazed at how much you get done and you are still able to enjoy reading!

    On #4 is that Sybil the original book from way back when? I remember in Junior High my best friend and I were at the library and they wouldn't allow him to check out that book! Can you imagine! Now imagine what all kids can read today (like on the internet).

    I read Sybil and Fatal Vision and highly recommend them.

    I'm glad you put some links in that post...I'm going to check out some of them!

    Have a great day!

  9. Hey John
    I am sick with the flu and probably going to take to my bed soon.The Sybil book is the one from way back when.I also really enjoyed Fatal Vision.
    Sorry for late reply
    thanks for stopping by!!!
