cleaning house (blog actually)

I cleaned up my blog a bit. I had way too many buttons on the sidebar so I took a lot off. I still may take a few more off. It just depends.

I also stopped following so many blogs. A lot of the blogs I only followed for their giveaways. I figured that wasn't quite the right reason to follow a blog, so I stopped. Some I started following, then didn't read them. Instead of having to sort through the ones I don't read to get to the ones I do read, I just stopped following.

If anyone was following me just because I was following them, feel free to stop following me.


Ok, just wanted to share. :)

Until next time...

I am so sad that you dropped me. Hoping to connect with you sometime when we are back in your area.

I cleaned out my blog list a while ago, too; actually I don't "follow" blogs anymore because I felt like it was starting to become a contest or something -- who has the most followers, how high can your stats get, you know what I mean? Now I just subscribe to blogs I like via google reader (so if you're wondering why I never "followed" you, that's why. I just use google reader to see what you write).

It feels good when the list of blogs/unread posts isn't so long anymore and you can go straight to the blogs you really enjoy reading instead of wading through a few that you don't really care for -- sounds terrible, but it's really true! :)

Oh, how I love the feeling of accomplishment that decluttering brings! What a great way to kick off the weekend. Hope you had a great birthday. Your card is STILL sitting on my counter because I haven't had a minute to run to the post office yet... yikes. It'll be a happy after birthday card:)

I did a little blog cleaning too. Felt good. Hope all is well with you friend! Yum to your birthday treats below. I love Texas Roadhouse too.

I need to do this too. Why am I so afraid to? What motivated you and how did you know what to cut and what not to cut? Maybe that'd help me do it.

Oh you're cracking me up! I love your honesty. I recently cleaned up my blog list but happy to announce you're still on there. LOL!

LOL, cute! I am following you because this looks like a really cute blog to follow and enjoy! :)

I did that not too long ago, myself. I still follow way more than I need to so I suppose I have to go through and cut some of them out. I can barely keep up, I swear!
