Tuesday Tips ‘N Things

Here’s a thing: I like to give my posts names, like today’s “Tuesday Tips ‘N Things.” (And I’m kinda big on the alliterative names,too.) Oh, I know you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about, since I haven’t quite gotten around to naming my posts here. Until today. But on my other blog, Cathy C.’s Hall of Fame, I’m a post-naming pro. It helps me focus on what I want to write that day, and keep all those posts notes organized.

When I was blurfing (blog surfing-I’m not giving up on this word) I came across the Blue Rose Girls and a naming contest. Apparently, Alvina likes to give her posts names, too. So, if you can come up with a great, catchy little name for her book posts, send it along to her here. Think fast, though. The contest is over on March 15th! (I sent an idea and I’d like to win that Little, Brown book. BUT, if I don’t win, I’m so using that post name here.)

And here’s a tip: Be nice when you’re out there in blogdom, commenting away. Not that you shouldn’t speak your mind, but you can do so nicely, can’t you? And if you can’t, remember that tried and true momism: if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. ‘Cause those not nice words aren’t going anywhere. Except perhaps back to bite you in the you-know-what.

Blurfing the Net

I kind of like making up new words, like today’s word: blurfing. As in, “You won’t believe what I read yesterday while blurfing the net.” Of course, the spell check thingie will probably drive me crazy, but that’s the price you pay for being the first to combine blogging and surfing. By next week, blurfing will be a household word. At least, in the Cathy C. Hall house. Well, maybe not in the whole house. Maybe just with me. But that’s okay. (It’s lonely at the top.)

So, I was reading all these kid lit blogs, or children’s book review blogs, or just splendiferous blogs, filled with wonderful information,  that I wanted to keep reading. I had to add them to the KEEPERS list, ’cause that’s what a keeper is, right?

Try blurfing yourself, and I’ll bet you’ll find all kinds of amazing things. And hey, if you come across a keeper, let me know. I’ll blurf right over!
