How do you roll?

Looking for my giveaway?  It runs through today September 23 closing at 10:00 PST.  Check it out here.

I admit that I'm a quasi-techno geek.
I feel more quasi more often than not.  I'm beginning to lose my savi-techno lingo with each iteration of new technology that comes about. 

Do you KNOW how long it took me to figure out how to link photos from flickr here?  When I realized I didn't need to up-load my photos in two places I was so excited!

So, how do you follow people? 

I follow people mostly through Google Reader.  Do you know that I get that 1000+ posts to read more often that I like to admit!  I love being able to view everything in a snap shot. I know that doesn't show the bloggy love in the stats but I do see the posts.  Oh and I can search them too.

I love the blog post I found when I was a newbie blog reader about the 'Next' button.  Do you know about that?  I can't find the blog person or post that I learned this trick from. Clover and Violet has a great post on this trick you can find that post here.

I put some of my fav peeps in my 'blog roll' over on the bottom right ---> {you know these ladies ROCK right?}

Do you Flickr?

Yeah this is so much eye candy for me.  I love that so many quilters have found their way there to make groups!  When I was going through blogs I was so amazed these people made their ways into groups.  How did they do that?  Ohhh flickr has GROUPS!

I found my way into the Quilting Bee Blocks group.  Yeah and stalked the 'I want in' thread.  I admit -I did stalk this a bit too much the first few months - thus the MANY a bee I'm in.  I do not look at this group anymore!  I find my groups through blogs now.  Oh dear.

You can see my plethora of photos here

Do you Pinterest? 

I have a few boards found here.
I have a bff from grade school who is a tastemaker in the 'technology' category.  That means she's SUPER cool and spends a few hours on pinterest sometimes.
She's amazing on the techno geeky love.  One day I'll pay her to redesign my blog.  Now what will I have her do?

Do you Twitter?

Bonnie, Jenna and I do. . yeah we might talk a bit here. :)

Do you blog?

I stalk many a blog but I'm always looking for more. ♥  

Do you bee?

So do you?
I would love to see what you got going on!


  1. I'm lovin' the linky love honey ta very much :)
    I also now have lots of reading to do (Who needs a tidy house anyway!)

  2. I would do so much more if I actually paid for my internet. :-)

  3. I follow people by blog,email and newsletter but my best way is go to the blog.

    I joined a group in flirck,my first time.

    Love that block,is great!!

  4. I usually follow blogs by email. I need to change this because I get to many daily emails.

  5. I follow blogs via Google Reader/Google Friend Connect and that "Next" button thingy pretty much changed my life. I love it.

    I do Flickr, and like you, I was gobsmacked at the size and vibrancy of the Flickr community. I love it! I over-committed to bees, too...just finishing up a couple and limiting myself to one for the coming year.

    I can't let myself get on Twitter because I have enough trouble finding time to actually sew!

    I'm here from Ellison Lane - i'll stay a while and have a look around your lovely blog!
