Welcome to Storyteller's Blog Rolls, Awards & Bling Blog with Click-able Links and Surprises

Hello and Welcome!
If that title isn't a mouthful, I don't know what is! This is a 'sticky post' meant to stay at the top indefinitely as an introduction ... just because.
I created this 3rd Blog to display my Blogrolls so I could remove them from Small Reflections after numerous visitors indicated problems accessing & leaving comments there.
Then I moved my Awards & Bling page here and added click-able Logos to various activities I participate in regularly on either (and/or both) of my blogs. Just call me obsessively addicted after just 8 months in this 'virtual' world. Thanks for dropping by, and if you have questions, suggestions, and/or comments ... type away because I love finding them ;--)
Hugs & blessings to all!

Addendum: While reading & responding to comments on this 1st post, I've decided to publish here occasionally ... beginning with 'reprises' of earlier posts from my other blogs. I hope you enjoy them.

You did a great job! You certainly have been busy. I noticed the increased speed on Small Reflections. This is a great idea.


Karen said...

Wow--another blog!! This should be fun!!

baby~amore' said...

you have dome a remarkable job. I am so impressed Storyteller.
Yes I noticed SR is loading faster.

I might ask you advice on my blogroll pages.

storyteller said...

Wow – What a pleasant surprise to find your comments! This is way ‘kewl’ …

Tina – I’m delighted my hard work is making Small Reflections load faster. I’ve wondered for a while what to do about it when folks mentioned difficulties, then I saw Barb at WillThink4Wine had moved HER Blog Rolls to a separate space and decided to give it a go.

Karen – Heheh … I don’t know how much posting I’ll wind up doing here … but it’s always nice to have options and ya never know ;--)

Trish (Baby~amore) – Thanks so much. I’d be happy to share what I’ve learned with you.

To all - After setting up the Blog Rolls, the site seemed a bit empty … then I remembered Mike mentioned moving his awards to a separate blog. I figured it couldn’t hurt to move mine over here and just might help speed things up even more. Then my obsessiveness kicked in … and I got the idea to add the Meme Graphics (Logos) with links to my posts. That took much longer than anticipated, but methinks it’s pretty ‘kewl’ now that it’s done.

Sandy C. said...

Wow! Congrats on this new site! I have no idea how you manage to keep up with all of your blogs and organizing all of your bloggy things :)

The place looks fabulous!

yertle said...

Wow, love the new site. It feels so cheerful.

storyteller said...

SandyC – Thanks … I’m not sure how (or if) I’ll ‘keep up’ … but moving the Blog Rolls and Bling over here from Small Reflections apparently DID speed up the load-time there … so I’ve accomplished what I set out to do … and perhaps that’s good enough for now.

Yertle – I’m delighted you find it ‘cheery’ … I love the look and feel myself. It made me want to ‘update’ the ‘look’ of the other blogs too and that’s why I revised the ‘links’ in the About Me section of the sidebars and replaced the ‘sticky’ post at the top of each … adding the giraffes at Sacred Ruminations and the ducklings at Small Reflections. Soon I may choose to replace the ‘headers’ as you did at Smile, Play, Dream!

Thank you both for dropping by my ‘new place’ in the Blogosphere! Perhaps I could add some fresh lemonade and treats for visitors to enjoy too … as I did in my 2008 Ultimate Blog Party post ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

lisa marie said...

Now this is a neat idea. Cool!

storyteller said...

Lisa Marie – Thanks … and I appreciate you dropping by my ‘new’ place! It all does seem to be working out as intended because folks are telling me Small Reflections loads faster for them and it definitely loads quicker for me.
Hugs and blessings,

Sky said...

your blog is so impressive!!!

storyteller said...

Sky – Thanks so much! I appreciate your kind words and wish there was a way for me to visit and/or contact you directly. I do hope you’ll visit one of my other blogs too. I post there more often than I publish here.
Hugs and blessings,

The Blonde Duck said...

I found your blog through Emma's. I love the find your inner princess post! I'll be back--it's too cute here!

storyteller said...

the Blonde Duck – I’m delighted you stopped by and appreciate your comment. I hope you enjoy future visits as time permits and I hope you’ll visit my other two blogs (Small Reflections and Sacred Ruminations) too. There’s a direct link to each in my sidebar below the Peace Globe info and above my Avatar & Profile.
Hugs and blessings,

Mimi Lenox said...

I didn't know this blog existed. There is a wealth of information here. Thank you for this!

And for the peace globe in your sidebar. I have linked you with others who are promoting. Bless you!

Joyce said...

Your online friends logo is so cute, Storyteller. :)

I also noticed that your other blogs are loading faster, too.

storyteller said...

Mimi Lenox – This 3rd blog hasn’t been around long. I created it a few months ago (in June I think) as a place to move things from Small Reflections … and hopefully speed up the way things worked there. I don’t post over here often, but try to add something new at least once or twice a month. In the last few days, I’ve added posts to all three blogs with information about (and links to) the upcoming Blog Blast for Peace and hope it helps spread the word.

Joyce – Thanks, I'm glad you like the graphic. I don't recall where it came from, but you're welcome to use it if you'd like. … Others have indicated that the first two blogs ‘work more efficiently’ now that this one carries more of the ‘load’ as well, so I guess my mission was accomplished ;--)

Thanks to both of you for stopping by and leaving your comments.
Hugs and blessings,

angie said...

Great idea to simplify your other blogs!

storyteller said...

Angie – It seems to have served its purpose. Thanks for dropping by. I hope you’ll visit my other blogs too: Small Reflections is where I blog daily and Sacred Ruminations where I publish 3-4 times each week.
Hugs and blessings,
