Self Proclaimed Google Queen
Knowledge is power and I can't get enough knowledge! (Obviously since I've been in college for almost a decade, lol.) I will find myself randomly wondering things and I think, "why wonder? why not KNOW the answer?" So, I hunker down at the laptop and go to my homepage- google!
When I was young and I didn't know a word, I'd ask my dad. His response was, "look it up in the dictionary." Ah, a wise man. Because, by looking it up, I was more likely to remember than if he had just told me. Thus, that's how I feel today. Why search for someone to tell me the answer, when I can find it myself.
So, I google... or I wikipedia. And with those two sources, I have the world at my fingertips. And I won't give up until I have the answer. That is why I call myself the Google Queen, because if it's on the world wide web, you can bet I'm gonna find it. (If I care enough to look.)
Case in point, I was DYING to make my blog 3 columns. So, after a few different attempts, I had resigned that I was going to have to pay someone to makeover my blog for me. Being a tightwad/cheapskate AND being knowledge hungry, I refused to give in! And lo and behold yesterday, I found what I was looking for, thanks to zimbio.com. I also wanted to learn how to make buttons, which I found googling thanks to accidentalmommies.com. And I appreciate them sharing their knowledge with the world!
And, in that thought, bear with me as I do some heavy construction work to my blog. I'm stoked about the upcoming Twilight Giveaway I'm doing with Tracy @ Book Room Reviews, so I wanted to get my blog in order before it begins. Also, I have several other giveaways and reviews coming up, so I wanted my site to look more like it had a personal touch to it. I'm not completely happy with my picture, but it's a work in progress, so keep coming back for new looks!
Thanks again to all my readers! Love you guys!!
