“… and then we went to this little cafe–no, wait. First, we stopped at one of those roadside gift shops? Oh, it was all just junk. But, we were good tourists and…”
You know the person. You’ve been there. Everyone is discussing the goofiest souvenir they ever purchased when someone pipes up and instead of sharing his, he begins a narrative that ends not only the discussion but the party, too.
Sometimes blogs feel like that.
I mean, I sit here every week (sometimes multiple times a week) and share these long, rambly stories of my childhood, my crazy family, or something that taught me about something else.
I love it, okay? I love reliving the good and bad times and seeing what the Lord has done in my life. It’s wonderful. Other times I spout off my opinions. Because that’s what a blog is for–permission to climb up on that soapbox and pontificate your solutions to life’s evils and ills. It’s fun.

Note:: There are no affiliate links in this post, but if there were (and if I were a good blogger there would be), they would provide me with a bit of a commission at no extra expense to you. I’m not supposed to tell you what I do with those, but it starts with a D, ends with an S and has a couple of Ns set off by an E and a Y. *whistles* Apparently, I’m not allowed to express my gratitude for you purchasing through my affiliate links either. So, I’m not SAYING thank you at all. Nope. Feeling… well, the rules didn’t say anything about that.
Where was I? Oh, yeah. I want more than just a one-sided discussion! I want to get to know you guys. You come here, you read, you participate in all my goofiness (thanks for humoring me!!!), and I try to show my appreciation with the episodes or gift cards now and then, but that still doesn’t help me know you. Who are you? Are you the willing wallflower who hides in corners and delights to watch the rest of the party revel in the socialness of it all? Or are you the center of attention, the life of every party. Are funerals safe around you? Just askin’…
Okay, those aren’t even things I thought of when I decided just to ask. Yep! I’m ASKING.
I even created an easy survey so I can get to know you better.
That’s right, five simple questions. That’s it. And one of them I even showed you how to “get an out” on it. That’s right. I went there. Just for you. So, I’m going to stop yammering and ask you to take the survey. And when you’re done, don’t forget to leave a comment.
Seriously, have a fabulous day! I so wish I could show you the ridiculous video I tried to make that wouldn’t upload. LOL.
