Today we join our friends at 2 Brown Dawgs for This ‘N That Thursday
It’s a little of this, a little of that and everything in between….
Follow-up Friday –
You remember my good friend Jodi Chick? She co-hosted the blog hop with me a few weeks back and I’m happy to say, it didn’t scare her off. She’s back for another go and will be co-hosting with me tomorrow.
Jodi got royally screwed and I don’t mean by one of those handsome princes. No, Big Brother Google (the incestuous bum) screwed Jodi’s RSS feed when Google Reader went the way of the dodo. Jodi needs some help getting her readers back. If you don’t read Kol’s Notes you are really missing a great blog. So please hop on over and check them out. Oh and don’t forget to add her RSS feed to whatever reader you’re using.
I happen to be using Feedly right now and I was getting Kol’s Notes every day, but all of a sudden nothing! So if you’re a follower of Koly’s and haven’t been getting his posts, you may want to go back in and add them to your reader again. When I added the feed yesterday I had to add a /feed to the end of the web address and viola, I got Kol’s Notes back in my feed again!
Excessive Heat Warning-
Just like the rest of the country, we’re in the midst of a heat wave. The weather is so hot and humid, walking should be done early morning or later at night. Right now I’m keeping our walks short. Like 20 minutes short. It’s just too dangerous otherwise. Last night we walked the dogs at 9:00 pm and it was still 86 degrees out.
The good thing? There weren’t very many bugs!
Dogs of Blogville Calendar Contest-
You remember the hastily put together Dogs of Blogville Calendar Contest in October/November of last year? I decided in a moment of brilliance or stupidity to have a calendar contest that ended up benefiting some fellow bloggers. I threw the idea out, got some photos back and then I was lost. Thankfully I have an amazing blogville family and the extremely awesome and incredibly talented Julie from The Daily Dog Blog and Leg Up Creative Solutions threw herself in the water with me and handled every detail of the calendar design and production.
Every. Single. Detail.
Well my dears, Julie has agreed to once again assist with this calendar project. I hope to nail the specifics down and make an announcement next week with the contest guidelines. So if you’re planning on purchasing calendars this year, you may want to set some money aside.
And start looking through your photos.
For those who didn’t purchase a calendar last year, this is the beauty who has been gracing my wall these past 18 days.
You can see what a great job Julie did with designing the calendars, the material is good quality, the calendars are printed in the good ole US of A AND the modest price of the calendar included the shipping.
While I haven’t yet priced calendars this year, I expect them to fall within the $20 to $25 range, which should include shipping.
So stay tuned!
Many thanks to our friends at 2 Brown Dawgs Blog.
