Ha! So I think I need to create a group of blogs in my Google Reader titled "Bloggers who read my blog and are totally awesome" and start giving you ladies more love.
I posted on Twitter earlier tonight that I was following 300 blogs through Google/Blogger Friend Connect, plus I have even more blogs (those with a large reach/national audience) in my Google Reader. As a result, it's hard to keep up with all of them and I've fallen behind on reading some of the blogs that really matter -- the blogs of you who have connected with me here and on Twitter.
I've culled those 300 blogs I was following down to about 250 and I plan to go through them even more and get down to somewhere in the 150-200 range, possibly lower. But for my 47 followers who have blogs, I promise that I will be following and reading your blogs for sure!
So in going through my blogs tonight and catching up, I realized that I had received a blog award almost a MONTH ago and I just now have seen it.
Thank you SO MUCH Brittany of A Southern Belle and Her Beau for the "Tag, you're it!" award!
