Bling, Bling!

One thing all my Gmail peeps know about me is that I'm online a lot!!! I am an online-junkie. When I get my laptop I think I will get more done around the house because my friend the internet can go with me around the house! For instance I have two HUGE piles of laundry I need to fold yet here I am blogging... So the past few days I have found an answer to my search. What have I been searching for? Blogs! I have been looking for a way to easily read others blogs without just randomly perusing the blogging world. You may have noticed all me new bling to the left, those are my new addictions. Thanks to Busy Dad I have a list of blogs to read through as often as my little heart desires!

I think it is better explained in his own words, so here is Jim.

What is this ridiculousness?
This is classic "when life gives you lemons" lemonade. We've just spiked it with a healthy dose of Vodka. As parents, we no longer have a night life. Sure, a birthday bash here, a bachelor party there, but all in all, you can pretty much set your watch to the fact that we're home on weekend nights. We're also bloggers. Bloggers live and die by the mighty comment. The Weekend Blog Hoppers takes both factors into account and gives parent bloggers a reason to look forward to Friday and Saturday nights (after the kids are in bed).

What do you do?
The best way to describe this is a virtual night out. But instead of hopping from bar to bar with our friends, getting buzzed, getting feely and talking cheeky, we're hopping each others' blogs.

What's the point?
To have a good time, get to know other bloggers whose real-word weekend lives are just as uneventful as yours and build each others' ranking and traffic through comments.

How do you play?
Surf other Weekend Blog Hoppers' blogs and drop comments freely.
Sign your comments as your Weekend Blog Hoppers alter ego (mine is BuzzeeDad).
For any comments that you get from a fellow Weekend Blog Hopper, cut 'em a little slack because it's all in good fun. Don't read into it, don't get offended -- we're all friends just letting it all hang out, virtually (you can always edit and delete the next morning and pretend you never met).
Drinking while commenting is HIGHLY encouraged, but of course not required.
(Optional) Proudly display a Weekend Bloghoppers Badge on your blog and link it to this page. Badges can be found here. I also have straight HTML code for them too if that's easier. Just email me.
Visit other cool bloggers who might have fun with this and recruit them for the movement.
Oh, How Could I Forget?!! The coolest virtual bar on the internet is Cre8Buzz. That's where the party's at right now and long after everything else shuts down (most of us hoppers are already members). It's invite only and I have about 20 or so left. Email me and I'll get you in while supplies last.

Andi and Brad have been married since 2002. They have five squishers who keep them on their toes. She is a second generation home educator. In her spare time Andi creates and sells handmade goodies in her shop, Andi Gould Designs.
