Convention of Statesmen


Much to my consternation . . .

An interesting phenomena has occurred. I'm one of those people who takes something they've learned and take it to an art form. Really, on occasion it is quite humbling. Let me give you an example.

When Tristi Pinkston recommended I create my own blog, I thought about it for awhile and then jumped right into the deep end. Oh, there was no dipping of the toe. It was a running, screaming, jumping into the deep end cannonball that splashed water for miles!

So, I thought to myself as I created my blog. I really don't want to create a blog no one will read. Okay, so sue me, that's the writer in me. I like to think, ponder and write stuff. Sometimes its funny, sometimes its not. You've probably already figured that part out.

So I spent about an hour or so a day cruising blogland. I started by checking the links on Tristi's page. I found some great blogs that way. I followed the links on the new blogs and so on. Soon, I had immersed myself in the blogging community. It was fun. It was addicting. It required self-control if I was to get any writing done and keep my house clean and the laundry done. But I loved it!

Then one day, on my blog, I noticed the View My Complete Profile link. I wondered why all my interests and books, etc. were hyperlinked. I clicked on Nora Roberts name and wahlah! I found myself in a blogland of Nora Roberts fans. Then I proceeded to click on all the others. Then I started clicking on my interests and checking out the blogs attached to those. (I don't recommend clicking on Mormon, heck of a lot of anti-Mormon stuff there, LDS is much safer.) It took me into so many communities and I LOVED reading all the blogs.

And then it happened, I wondered what would happen if I entered my name as one of my favorite authors. How many bloggers would have me listed as one of their favorite too? So I typed it in, saved it and clicked.

Talk about the proverbial pin in the balloon. My excitement plummeted to dismay. Nobody, but nobody had named me as a favorite author. Big sigh. Really, really big sigh.

So, back I went to blogland and found this cute little test. I'm a yellow crayon. I needed some joy. Yellow's good right?

You Are a Yellow Crayon

Your world is colored with happy, warm, fun colors.

You have a thoughtful and wise way about you. Some people might even consider you a genius.

Charming and eloquent, you are able to get people to do things your way.

While you seem spontaneous and free wheeling, you are calculating to the extreme.

Your color wheel opposite is purple. You both are charismatic leaders, but purple people act like you have no depth.

Good thing I like yellow. Now, back to work at writing something that will have people listing me as their favorite author! Hint, hint, hint.

Don't forget to nominate your husband for the "Best Husband in the World" contest!
