Over on the right hand side of this blog there are several little including a link to one of my published short stories, matter of fact, my personal favorite among the things I've had published thus far in my writing endeavors.
There is also a VOTE NOW button for a site called BLOG4REEL who is holding a competition to turn a blog into a reality TV type of movie. I was invited to join, but truthfully I think anyone can sign up to compete. Anyway, registered users can vote once per day, so if you are so inclined, click away.
There is also the rotating list of fellow bloggers that I affectionately call, ME HARDY'S. I'm guilty of not updating the list often enough, but I just did so if you post a new blog an do not show up amongst the 25 most recent posters let me know so I can add you and your blog.
But the creepiest of all widgets in the one Blogger recently brought out. The one with the Little pictures and the caption MY FOLLOWERS. Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled that as of right now there are 46 people out there who are willing to publicly declare they read my words. But am I the only one that associates tainted Kool-Aid and Jonestown with the words MY FOLLOWERS? Come on blogger is that the best you could do? I challenge you to come up with a better term instead of painting us all with a coat of Cappuccino Cult. Least that is what they would call it at the paint store where they have to have a fanciful name for 8 bazillion shades they stock.
But don't worry, I don't serve Kool-Aid here.
