This past week has been exciting (well, ‘exciting’ by my standards anyway):
I signed up for BlogHer in San Diego next August. I’m really looking forward to meeting my bloggy friends. Ok, this is probably only exciting to bloggers.
I did a little lot of virtual flirting with “GpJeff” on Twitter. (That’s a top secret alias ’cause he’s probably got a nice family and a real job and is probably embarrassed to be mentioned on this tabloid of a blog.) Anyhoo, it was good for me. I hope it was good for him, too. E-flirting is all the action I’m getting these days.
But I did have a couple real life dates this week. OMG! I know! I’m shocked, too.
One was with a long-time friend who, even though he cares very deeply for me, isn’t sure what he wants in terms of a relationship, or really if he wants one at all, blah, blah, blah. His ambivalence has certainly dampened any interest I might have had. (See, now you’re not so surprised anymore. I mean, really – who else would I attract???) At least this one isn’t married/separated. But really, it’s enough to make a gal give up dating altogether.
The other date was with a friend of some friends. Our mutual connection is this sweet couple, and the guy is a close friend of the husband’s. We all went out on a double-date, except it wasn’t really a date because the guy didn’t know it was really a setup made to look like “a casual outing amongst friends”. Yes, I sometimes have to resort to enlisting the assistance of friends in such trickery to get a date.
So I guess I really only had one date last week. Hey, that’s still better than my average.
Well then, back to the sure thing… Whilst e-flirting with “GpJeff” he pimped my blog on Twitter. Way to make a gal purr!
Hang on, I think I need a smoke.
Ok, I’m back.
Then the e-flirting turned from dusty thrusters (ahem) to blog hacking. *sigh* I knew it couldn’t last forever.
Lately, several people have mentioned having their blog hacked. Realizing I may not know enough on the topic, I did a little research and wrote this awesome post about Seven Ways To Prevent Those Bloggin Hackers over on Marketing Squirrel for y’all. You’re welcome. Cash gifts or trips to warm locations being accepted now.
Finally, on the sex blog that has an ad next to this post, two toy reviews were picked up by a large site! No, the reviews weren’t mine, but one of the other stories might be mine because after all this dating and flirting I just had to do something.
