BlogHere and other words that should end in 'e'

First, I am thrilled that I'm now back in the good graces of my ad service - BlogHer. See, they feature the posts that they like right underneath the banner. Truthfully, some of the posts that they feature are L-A-M-E but that might be because I don't have the same taste as other people. I've also found some great authors from time to time that I've added to my ever increasing google reader.

So look- look under that ad right now (it'll likely change soon) and notice that it has "Note to all single guys" underneath it. THAT IS MY POST. That means that people that are bored at work are more likely to stumble across my blog and read that post. Somehow, I think it also might be for ladies that read it thinking that this would be some long in depth post - likely to make you think. I can't help but feel that they are likely to be disappointed with what they find.

Anyway, they used to "feature" me kind of often - but nothing for the last several months. I even tried showering, but to no avail. So whatever I did or didn't do, I'm thankful.

Secondly, I'm bummed that I am an idiot. Before you hit "add comment" to write something like "Yeah, Anne, we know...but we love you anyway" let me clarify. In my quirky me post, I wrote that I have issues with the word potato. It needs an 'e.' Maybe it's because my name has a silent 'e' on it - so I think many words need an extra 'e.' Or maybe it's because I have a brain tumor and can't re-learn how to spell words. I DON'T KNOWE.

Anyway, today, I was catching up on my reader and decided to comment on Charlie Hill's blog (which is typically a funny twist on weight loss efforts) - Back to the Fridge. His writing is very funny and I'm not just saying that because he can quote "The Princess Bride" like no one else I've ever been around. I'm saying that because he has an 'e' on the end of his name too.

In the my comment on his post for today I totally spelled potato with an 'e' and then hit publish. Only while re-reading it did I notice my typo. And then commented again where I tried to convince people that that's how we spell it in Colorado. I even added "Look it up." Which is a great tool I've learned when you want to prove your point but figure that the people reading it might not take the time to do so. Not that Charlie's readers are lazy.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, I am an idiot. Also, I heart BlogHer again.

I just posted to Charlie's blog and added an "e" to tomato so you wouldn't feel so alone. I also tried to help you out by posting again that mine was a typo, unlike yours. Besides, I KNOW they spell potato with an "e" in Colorado because my sister used to live there and said they do....sometimes!

OH MY GOSH. Vicki - first of all, welcome! :) Thanks for posting a comment! And secondly, thanks for deliberately spelling tomato with an 'e.' You rock. :)

And also? DANG IT. The BlogHer spies picked other posts to feature so it pushed mine far far away. :( Well, I promise. It was there. I used to be someone that people would stumble upon. :)

I saw your comment on how to add a graphic to the address bar I think the fancy shmancy technical term is favicon. Yes, I can do a tutorial on how to do that!! It's actually pretty easy! Thanks for the request! I feel SOOooooo important!!

I've wanted to join blogher but everytime I've looked into it they weren't accepting applications. Good for you for getting in!!

Here's the link to the website I found on how to do a favicon not sure I'll get to it before the weekend!
