My Blog’s Very First Advertisement

MyFirstAd

For the first time today, I was surfing my site and updating things as usual, when all of a sudden I see… dum-dum-dum… my very first advertisement staring back at me!

I asked it what it was doing here and it just tilted it’s big doe eyes at me and blinked innocently. This instantly takes my mind off the situation and for a moment, I actually focussed on the “cuteness” of the advert instead.

It was a handsome little devil with looks so enticing they will transfix you and draw you in immediately. With a cheeky look on its face, my new advertisement finally says to me, “I’m here, I’m cute, and I’m staying unless you want to pay me to go away.” Eff!

It wasn’t very sweet about things, but it did make me think. Should I pay to have this intrusion forever disappear? That’s a tough question, because my site is still so new. Instead, I thought I would try to make it my friend. Yes, that’s what I’ll do – I’ll ply it with compliments and make it welcome here until the day I no longer need it’s affection. Mwhahahaha!

The sweet victory of producing a blog busy enough to warrant an advertisement is a great compliment to me and for that, I will wear each one of them like a badge of honor. So don’t be shy, feel free to click any ad here that catches your fancy. I’m not a selfish person, so sharing the advert-love feels just fine to me [wink].

Now I want to know, have any of you noticed any ads on your blogs? Have you paid to get rid of them? Was it worth it? If you have any info, please feel free to share below.

We’ve Been Tagged

Well here you are. Thanks so much for coming. 🙂 You may find yourself as one of the lucky few to have been tagged by me. Or maybe you’ve just stumbled upon this post out of curiosity. Either way, I’m glad you’re here.

If for some reason you find that after reading this you are no longer happy to have heard from me, I sincerely apologize. Feel free to delete this post as it will not hurt my feelings at all. I mean… I didn’t originate this plan, so it’s not that big of a deal, but I would like to get to know more about you.

Anyways, I myself was tagged by rossmurray1 and since I have nobody else to point the finger at, I will urge you to focus your attention on him as well. I don’t know him at all, but I’m sure he’d love to hear from you. 😉

So being that I’m pretty new to this whole blogging thing, I figured that I may as well go ahead and give this “Tagging” a shot even if it is against my better judgement. It might be a good way for you to get to know me a lil bit better too. So enjoy and here goes:

The rules:
1. Post the rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and eleven random facts about you.
3. Answer the questions given to you in the tagger’s post.
4. Create eleven new questions and tag new people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and let them know they have been tagged.

7. I successfully managed 21 people nationally when I was only 21 years old.
8. I’ve been a severe nail biter my whole life, but last year I just stopped. It’s weird.
9. I have 3 tattoos, but they are all hidden. I named one of them “Frank”.
10. My bf & I wear matching lucky charms. We’re both Snakes in the Chinese Zodiac.
11. I was born at exactly 4:20am. 😉 Lucky me!

Here are the questions given to me:

1. What’s that behind you?

7. No
8. Come up with a better one then, if you’re so smart.
I’ll try. This has been magic though…
9. I was at the liquor store one day stocking up on wine – five bottles to be precise.
As he was ringing them up, the clerk said, “If you run out, we close at 5:30.”
Witty or rude?
Rude. Just plain rude.
10.Getting dressed with the shades up is like _________. Complete this simile.
Flirting with your top down. Gotta keep em’ guessing, ladies. I try to be good…
11.Is getting blog-tagged more work than you bargained for at this point?

Welcome to My First Blog

Click to visit my About Me page

Hello everyone and welcome to my very first blog post!

This is definitely something new that I’ve decided to try out, so I thought I would take a quick minute and give you a sneak peek into who I am, what I love to write about, and how you can help me out along the way.

Who am I? This is a question that I’m sure many people wonder about from time to time. I like to think that I’m always evolving and trying my hardest to be the best I can be in any given situation. I am the kind of person who will always look for the silver lining in things. I enjoy stopping to smell the roses as much as possible. I guess you could say that I’m an eternal optimist and I try to stay that way even when life throws me sour lemons.

What do I love? Maybe a better question should be, ‘what don’t I love?’ LOL. Taking the time to reflect upon the beauty in things is how I love. In turn, it enables me to be introspective and thankful for the little things in life. The art of happiness, beauty, personal confidence, relationships, and travel are just some of the subjects that hold great fascination for me. These will be the things I will explore coming up.

How can you help me in all this? Well, I am of the opinion that many minds are better than one, so I would love to hear any experiences you’d like to share as well. If you are the kind of person who is looking to continually make your life better or even if you would like just a touch more happiness, then I’d love to hear from you. In my mind, discussions on fulfilling desires and self-improvement can only build a strong foundation of support which would benefit us all.

I look forward to getting to know you; I hope you will enjoy reading what I have to say; and I can’t wait to see where this blog will take us. Thank you very much for coming and ttys.

For additional information about who I am and what’s going on in my life, please see my ‘About Me’ page located here.
