Random and Tuesdays

Random First…

Is it me or does it seem like Google is taking the fun out of blogging and blog hopping by retiring GFC? Google Circle just doesn’t seem to fill the void for blogs/hops and it’s not as easy to use with a blog as Facebook or Twiiter are.

I’m thinking that the birds around here are somewhat confused. We had some Spring-like weather for a few weeks. As a whole, the winter has been very mild. It just seems like the birds thought it was spring and started to do their spring stuff. Now, you can go outside at 20 degrees in the morning and the birds are chirping away like it’s spring. Well..as long as the rabbits don’t nest in my yard yet..I’m happy.

Apparently, meatballs are back in style. I know..right..who knew? Like they come in and go out of style. Actually, it seems like we only eat them at cocktail parties these days.

okay…join this wonderful host for more!


Welcome to Tuesday Friend and Follow!- the fun hop to boost your friends, followers, and blog.

Thursday Comment Club on Poshonabudget

We’ve had several people ask if we could incorporate the Comment Club into our Tuesday and Friday Friend and Follows. So, if you want comments, simply add a link to your post (NOT A GIVEAWAY!) with “comment” in your link with your site name. Think of it as a ‘comment exchange’.

Tuesday Friend and Follow


How it Works

• On the linky below, enter your name and what you are linking to. For example, Posh-GFC, Mel-Twitter, Mel-Comments, Posh-Alexa.

• If you have more than one page to link to, go ahead and post them all separately.

• Linking to a giveaway post specifically is viewed as spam, and as such, will be deleted just as spam will. For your convenience, there is a giveaway linky below the hop linky

• Under 100 GFC Followers? Under 200 Twitter? Under 200 Facebook Page likes? Under 50 in your circle? Please add “low” next to your name so we know to help you out!

• YES, you can link to your hop. You may want to add “linky” next to it.

• Make a goal to visit 5 others, like/friend them, and then leave a comment telling them hello.

Thanks for joining us!

** I’m looking for Alexa Reviews. I will reciprocate. Simply leave me a comment letting me know.**

Have fun!

    I agree with you about GFC vs Google Circles. I find Google circles unnecessary and sometimes a pain to navigate. They don’t seem to offer any benefit over what Facebook offers (at least in terms of promoting a blog). Yes, you can sort people into different circles, but for me, it is just easier to have everyone in the same circle. The only advantage I have seen with Google+ pages is that when you are linking to a blog post Google + tends to pull up more associated images to link to your post. So you have more of a choice.

    Sunday, we spied a cute bunny in our backyard sunning himself. It feels ridiculously warm for the end of February and I know by the time April rolls in we’ll get a cold snap which will send me pulling out my sweat again. This is craziness!

    I’m totally with you on the whole GFC vs. Google Circles thing – not to mention it took me almost THREE YEARS to build up my followers and now Google, the party poopers, are making me start all freakin’ over. I just don’t get why they have to penalize us non-Blogger blogs. Like my 4-year old would say, “It’s not fair!” :)

    Our birds are confused, too – and tomorrow we have 100% chance of snow and rain…so they’re not going to be happy. :)

    I’m in Northeastern PA, and I haven’t noticed any “early birds” around here, yet…and I live in the woods (sorta). However, even though I’m usually awake by 6:00, I suppose my brain and my senses don’t fully come to life until after I’ve had at least 2 cups of coffee…and that sometimes doesn’t happen until 10:00 or 11:00 AM, lol!

    I wonder if we’re supposed to get snow tomorrow, too…hmm…

    Happy Tuesday, everyone!

    I am trying to build my Google+ but I forget to go there and post stuff. lol One more place to visit everyday. Ugg! And meatballs, yuck! Never a meatball fan so I wouldn’t know if they were in or out.

    Wow I decide to finally come back. Maybe at the right time as well since I no longer know who is following me. But I’m trying to come back. I don’t like this google + either from what I saw today.
