We spent nearly all of last week in southern California with Bart's family, swimming, visiting the beach, eating at In-n-Out, and going to Disneyland. It was a delightful week.
I will not deny you the pleasure of many pictures of Ella, but while I get my life together enough to share those pictures, might you do me a favor?
I spent some time last night responding to comments and noticed how many many people do not have their email address attached to their profile. This is troublesome, when there are so many of you that I want to respond to and say, "Yes! You can be in my very (non) exclusive friend club. We will eat cookies and marvel at Kayla's abilities to dress herself."
If you don't have this set, when I get your comment via email and go to respond, it looks like this. I'm guessing your email is not "firstname.lastname@example.org." Unless somehow dozens of you signed up for the same email address.
And because I care so deeply, here's how to do it. It is incredibly easy (we're talking two minutes, tops) and then I will be able to respond when you ask things like, "What book should I read?" (Answer: Okay for Now).
Also, even if you DON'T have a Blogger blog, many of you still have Blogger profiles so that you can comment, so it'd be very very lovely if you could do this to your profile too.
Anyway, without further ado:
Step 1: Go to Blogger.com, sign in, and ta-da, there is your dashboard. Click "Edit Profile" (for your convenience, I've drawn a very impressive red arrow pointing to it with Paint. Because I am a high-tech blogger).
The "Edit Profile" Page will open. Two things to do on this page. First, check the box that says "Show my email address." And then, if you scroll down a bit more, you'll see a box labeled "email address." Enter the email address you'd like people to respond to in that box. Please.
Then, scroll to the very bottom of that page and click the big orange "SAVE PROFILE" button.
That's it! So easy!
And I will love you forever because I'll be able to respond when you ask a question or if I want to ask YOU a question or just say "Hey, how about we be friends?" And believe me, if you have your email address set to display, we will be friends.
