Metablogging

Do you guys know Traci at '38 and Growing'? She is a relative newcomer in this bloggy little world of ours and she is a very fun read. Link on through, if you haven't met her already!

Anyway.

A couple days ago, Traci wrote a post about wanting to update her blog, but wanting to do it all herself. She's always up for a challenge - so this is sort of right up her alley. Me? I'd rather just do my writing and leave the technical stuff to technical folks. I mentioned this in her comments and also mentioned that I wanted to put all of YOUR buttons in a slide show, but just didn't know how.

It was only hours after leaving that comment that I found a note in my inbox from Unknown Mami with the subject: 'I made you a present!' That's right. The Unknown One saw my casual comment on someone else's blog and made me a slide show. Can you believe how sweet that was? I am still reeling from the generosity and thoughtfulness. And check it out (on the left sidebar under 'These Blogs Rock the Casbah')! Isn't it cute? I haven't collected a lot of buttons lately because they were stretching so far down the page that I knew no-one was going to see them. Once Mami did the hard part for me, I was able to go off gathering buttons and adding them to my slide show. SO - if you don't see yourself there, let me know and I'll rectify it quickly - because I CAN!

And I CAN because of the absolute knock your socks off kindness of this dang blogosphere we call home.

I feel an 'I love you, man!' coming on...

People are so awesome.

I was going to offer information on how to make a slideshow when you mentioned it here, but it looks like I got beat to it.

How cool! Unknown Mami is a sweetheart, isn't she? :)

Becky said...

That is so cool. I tell you, I would be lost if it wasn't for the help of other. Cause I am stupid when it comes to computers, Lol!

My top border another blogger made for me, just because I commented on how beautiful hers was!
Made one for me! This blogworld is a kind kind place:)

I love you, Man!

Sincerely, I am all aglow (and no, it's not the fever!) You really brightened my day. You really are cool, Mommakin!

Maybe soon I'll have it together enough to have a button for your slide show. :-)

As to Unknown Mami, she is one rocking chick.

And some people say the internet is only for porn! That was really nice of her. I haven't picked up any buttons for the very same reason. (Don't have room for anything on the sides.)

I'm going to pay a visit to your buddies!

blueviolet said...

There truly are some wonderfully giving people out here! It looks nice!

Unknown Mami said...

Aww, I love you, Man! But you already know that. Thank you for the love.

SparkleFarkle said...

Alicia said...

WOW-That was very kind of her, indeed!

Mammatalk said...

Now, that's a friend! Hmmm...Think I'll go pay her a visit!

Slide show looks great!

carma said...

Someone was kind enough to help with mine when I sent out the "call" too - so many nice bloggers out there willing to help the techinically-challenged!!

Your button is scrolling in my slideshow too :D

Melissa B. said...

That Mami is one awesome chica, ain't she? Guess I need a button, huh? Won't Silly Sunday Sweepstakes do? I feel left out, somehow...

Vivienne said...

That is fantastic! I figured out how to make a slide show from some tutorial (I've long forgotten where) but I would give my eyeteeth to know how to make a button. I am buttonless!
