Google Reader + Blog Candy

NOTE: This is a sticky. Please scroll down to the next post for my newest entry!

Hi readers! Before I get to the blog candy, I want to write this…

I’ve been a bit slow in updating my blog. Reason being: Just very little time since I went back to work. Besides my full-time job I am also an adjunct for the university where I work at and this semester I am also taking a photography class. Ok, I’m not doing it for a grade but I do want to learn the material and try to read my text books at least every Sunday evening (the night before the quiz, ha!).

Initially I started this blog to share my crafty stuff. I actually had other blogs that I update. But I got lazy with the other blogs and this one is just so much fun to keep up. Then I started making blog friends too and the blogging thing became more exciting. In all honestly I didn’t think anybody would want to look at my stuff or read what I write. But I actually do have people subscribed to this blog and I kind of feel bad that I haven’t been posting as regularly or worst yet I haven’t been visiting my friends’ blogs as frequently!!

The other day I made this video. It’s meant for work and my class but I thought I’d share here too. Since I’ve been random at posting and it’d suck if you click or type my web addy and there’s no new post I suggest that you use this method of keeping up with my blog and others too. If you’re still using email subscription and you love it, that’s fine, but subscribing through the RSS feed and using a reader, like Google Reader, will be so much easier (cleans up your mailbox too). If you’re already using Google Reader, that’s great. Maybe the video will show you a bit more about it. Keep in mind though that there are many RSS readers out there (if you use Outlook, you can use Outlook for your RSS reader for example). Google’s just my favorite cause I already have a Google account and I love using iGoogle as my homepage.

Another good way, if you are just bored and want to know what the heck is going on with Savitri’s life, you can follow me on Twitter. I’ve been Tweeting since before Twitter became huge. I don’t know what happened there… great marketing? Who knows but I do use it everyday. When I started Tweeting I only Tweet work stuff but since I went on maternity I’ve been a bit more random and personal. I figured why not.

The giveaway… share with me one little/big thing that you did to help somebody recently and you’ll be eligable to win $25 to spend at Tina aka’s Travelingmama’s new Etsy store. There are tons of wonderful stuff there and all profit goes to a wonderful cause which you can read in her store or her blog. Share this candy by posting it on your blog and be eligible to win some extra goodies that I will snail mail you (ribbons, buttons, paper, chipboard, all that good stuff). Just include the direct link to your post in the comment! One more… tell me that you’ve subscribed to my blog either via email, a reader, bookmark, blogroll, whatever, let me know (I’m just curious) and I’ll throw in more goodies for you. There you go (pics of the goodies to come). You have one chance to win up to THREE things from me. You have until Sept. 10, noon Central U.S.A. time, to comment and be eligible to win. Good luck!

Alright, have a great day and I hope I’ll be able to get into the swing of things again and craft regularly – I really want to sew more! Oh, I added this plug-in for the comment portion and so even though you’ve commented before, if this is the first since I installed Intense Debate, your comment will be moderated first before it post.

  1. Hey girl! I love your writing style, so I really don't care WHAT you write about, I'll be ready to read!!! Lol... I purchased some postcards from Tina's Etsy Shop last week, and this morning I snagged some more! I wish I could have it all! I love that these purchases are truly going to a wonderful cause. The Traveling Tribe are just an amazing bunch! AND.... lol... I subscribe to your blog through Google Reader. :-)
  2. I helped a friend to get a job :) I like this question :) It makes me think - have i been good to others recently! Your post is not only about candy, but is about Love, savitri :) Thank you!
  3. I do love your blog, and totally understand what it takes to keep it going, with all we have going on in our lives! As for my entry, last week I took a meal to a family who was in need. It always makes me feel so good to do something that is really not hard to do, but you know it makes an impact on the recipient. I'm grateful I had the opportunity to do that. ?Thanks for the chance to win!
  4. I have been a Savitri fan for awhile - I follow you on Twitter! Now, I can follow your blog as well. It is so great to find a new cyber friend who has kiddos, is in ed tech and loves to stamp/scrap. Now on to the assignment - I work with a local Youth Group. It helps me to stay connected to the kiddos (now that I don't teach anymore) and provides them with another positive adult role model...

  5. Hey Savitri! Well I usually hav eyour blog in my favorites, because I didn't know how the Google reader worked. But I think I figured it out, and will be following your blog like that now. I try to help everyone that I can, but as you know I have been sick and haven't been out of the house in days, but before I got sick, I created a football / cheerleading rooster for the Pee Wee football program to sell for a fund raiser. I guess that's not to big, but I gave my time and sometimes that's all we can give. :)
  6. ah heck girll.....really gets me thinking...I should be doing more ...now I'm feeling all guilty...LOL I follow you in reader...I better get my crap together and go do something......
  7. I started to use Google Reader about a week ago and I love it! Of course your blog was one of the first I added :) Last Saturday I helped a friend. She had a total breakdown and we stayed with her and got her home and calmed her down. Really took some time and it was in the middle of the night plus it was freezing outside. Now we all took a vow to look after her a bit more and also exchange what's going on from time to time to make sure everything is alright.
