Today’s IBOT post is brought to you by Jess’ feet.
Or really, by general randomness represented by my painted red tootsies.
Think of todays IBOT post as a general service announcement, if you will. I have much to impart, and I do promise ad breaks. (Or at least one ;))
The first item on the agenda, is IBOT itself.
As you are all no doubt aware, our beloved linky which began from quite humble beginnings, is steadily growing in numbers. Any week now, we will reach the most coveted (by me anyway) 50 mark.
Possibly even today.
The result of this, is that is unreasonable to expect that I can continue to read and comment on every single post. Although I love it; absolutely love it in a it’s-tuesday-neglect-all-my-responsibilties-and-shirk-my-duties-so-I-can-read-blogs-way, I don’t love it more than my family, or my husband. Something has to give.
And it will not be my marriage.
The result of this, is that whilst I will endeavour to read and comment on as many blogs as possible, I will no longer be putting myself under the pressure of reading all of them. My efforts will be primarily concentrated on new linkers, and whoever else catches my attention 🙂
This means, that I’m going to need help. What I love about Tuesday Bloggers is your absolute generosity with your time; almost all of you make a huge effort to get around and visit others. What I would like to do, is to create a team. #TeamIBOT if you will. The idea is that between the team members and myself, we will make sure that every single post gets read and commented on. The logistics of said team will depend on members and numbers, but if you’re interested, please let me know. (And you don’t have to be a blogger.)
Today seems the perfect day to be rolling out my new found plan, as it is a very special day in our home today.
It is Boatman’s Birthday.
And to celebrate the occasion, and also his one true passion in life (besides, of course, me) I have made him a video clip, the concept of which he, himself dreamed up.
This would be the promised ad break, if you’re interested.
Happy Birthday Boatman!
Moving right along (because he asked me not to make a fuss, and I won’t, but should you want to wish him a happy birthday yourself, you can stalk him on twitter at @BoatmanWassaaa)
Another reason I am feeling the need to step back from obsessive/compulsive blog reading is because I have a few things up my sleeve for the coming year, and to do them, I need to create a little more time for myself.
As part of the plans, I’m needing to ascertain exactly who is reading this little blog, so I have created a short, ten question survey, that I would love for you to fill out. It will take about 90 seconds of your time, but be very helpful for little old moi. (Is that how you spell it?) There is a link on the sidebar there, but to make it even easier, I am putting one right here, just for you.
I had also planned on a new Blogger of the Mo for this month, but I think the lack of sleep from the weekends shenanigans is catching up with me, so if you want the honour, you have time to impress!
And that’s pretty much it.
Which is really not all that much at all now that I look at it.
So to round out the completely random nature of this post, a few random questions for you.
When was the last time you shaved your arm pits?
If you had to choose between chocolate and wine which would it be?
What is the weirdest word in the English language?
I’ll post my answers on Facebook later today. 😀
