Confessions of a Blog Addict.
I was originally going to title this post Xanga vs Blogger part 2. But I thought I might as well come clean. I'm a blog addict, I have a problem! I wake up and check everyone's blog, I check before I go anywhere, I check before bed and sometimes, Yes, I even wake up in the middle of the night and have to check out my favorite blogs. Pathetic, I know! So, why am I revealing my dark, embarrassing secret? It's Xanga's fault! I'm doing a comparison of the two (blogger and Xanga) over this next month, I want to find out which one is better. AnywayI discovered a tool in Xanga last night called Footprints. It is a tracker. I originally thought, "cool" I can see how many people read this thing. Oh No, it does way more than that, it tells you who is reading your blog. Cool right? No way! Not if you read people's blogs as often as I do. All this time, they (you) can see how really pathetic I am and how often I check their(your)site. I look like I'm stalking. So for all of you who see my name several times a day on your "footprints", really, I'm not a stalker! I never even knew blogs existed until I started this adoption adventure. I rarely got online. It's amazing how connected I've become to the internet now. I did my research on adoption agencies, countries, immigration laws, yahoo groups, blogs all online. I first saw Marion and Emmanuel's picture online. I fell in love with the kid from the foster system after seeing his picture online, I've met great friends, yes, online. I look forward to new posts from all of you, okay maybe a little too much. It's the one time or in my case multiple times a day that I'm not focused on what's going on in my life, or my adoption, or with my kids, but I'm truly listening with all my heart and praying with all that I have for your family, your adoption, and you. So, yes, I am a blog addict! And as far as Xanga vs Blogger- If you are not a blog addict, you might like the footprints thing to see who has visited you. Or if you're like me the whole footprints thing might make you feel like a dork. Either way, it's a cool feature!
