AD-ITUDE!

So, yesterday, while I was visiting all of my regular blogs on my blog list I came across a few blog titles from other bloggers that caught my eye so I clicked…
Wow. What a mess!

I thought maybe from the titles these would be blogs I might want to follow but once I got to their page all I saw were ads, ads, and more ads!

Two lines of blogging, a big ‘ol ad and then two more lines of blogging all the way thru the post. It was so distracting I couldn’t stay interested so I just left.

I checked around on the world wide web and only 2% – 4% of “pro-bloggers” actually make money blogging. It’s crazy…

I’ve blogged about this before in this post and seriously, blogging is definitely not what it used to be.

Which brings me to an announcement…
Because I soooo long for the days of “old school” blogging I started a Facebook group specifically for us old school bloggers!
EVERYONE is welcome to join and to share your blog posts to a group of kindred spirit, old school bloggers.

It’s as simple as clicking on that photo right there or on this link,
‘OLD SCHOOL BLOGGERS the originals.’

ALSO – If you know any bloggers who would be interested in a blogging group with more emphasis on blogging rather than selling, please do send them to this group!
Okay… That was exciting butttttttttt………
NOT as exciting as the season finale of Game of Thrones…
It’s over and I just want to cry!!!
I heard chatter that people were upset about the ending. I was not one of those people. I loved everything about this show and am really kinda’ sad that it’s over.
Jon Snow was my crush and I seriously wish dragons were real.
Got caught up on another show that I absolutely love, Lucifer on Netflix.
Can’t wait for season 5! Thank you, Netflix for saving this show!
Well, it’s Monday and I’ve got lots to do today. I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week. What did everybody do over the weekend? I’m still on my vacation laundry and re-organizing which is just as well because it’s still raining here.
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Time – 6:10am
Temp – 50 degrees F/High today, 57 and SURPRISE…
RAIN!!!!!
Mood – Awake!!!
Bitch, bitch, bitch – A shallow bitch for the day. I broke a nail so far down it looks like I only have a nub! This never happens to me. Wahhhhhh.
Best thing – Up early starting my day!
Be well.

#27 – YOU KNOW NOTHING, JON SNOW!

I say it all the time… I’m an Italian woman 365 days out of the year unless there’s a sale and then I’m a Jew.
It’s true. I love a great sale. I feel such a sense of accomplishment when I find a fabulous buy on a fabulous product.
It happened three times to me this past week. I was giddy.
I went to Shopko – it’s like a Target – for laundry soap.
ONE item.
A HUNDRED AND ONE items later…
The fabulous find.
Sandals and a wallet just for me.
I know. Whippty dip but hey, cute stuff and ON SALE!
First, the super cute sandals. Normally $26. On sale for $5!
Love ’em.
Then the wallet, leather and roomy. $36 on sale for $9.99.
Love it too.
Headed over to Tuesday Mornings and got a couple of cool things on sale there.
The Olaf Snow Cone Maker for the grandkids, normally $20-$25. On sale for $9.99.
5,000 cranks and one ice cube at a time, they may get a snow cone by lunch if they start at breakfast. But hey, it’s cute, right?
Aside from errands with the fabulous finds, I’ve been trying to stay home in the AC as the triple digits continue on out here. I love my warm, sunny days but holy cannoli. Warm NOT flesh melting hot!

I’ve been obsessed with crocheting lately and I’ve begun to hoard yarn like I hoard fabric. Not even kidding.
You can never have enough yarn!
On the hook tonight? – Waffle weave dishcloths/washcloths.
These work up so fast and I love that they really do look like waffles. They make great gifts and people have already started ordering..
#AndSoItBegins
I’m also obsessed with Game Of Thrones thus the Jon Snow references above. Overall it’s a great show but Jon Snow is hot and that’s just a bonus while watching.
Anybody else watching?? I’m on pins and needles with this season. Sadly, the last and final.
What’s happening on your Monday evening? Anything thrilling and spine chilling to report?? You know I’m a nosey bitch and I gotta’ know, so spill!
I hope Monday wasn’t too Monday for you and that the rest of your week is fabulous!
