Do You Mind If I Whine?

Just for a moment? Then I'll stop, I promise.

I'm a huge fan of The Pioneer Woman and I'm really enjoying reading her updates on the redecorating of her lodge which judging from the pictures, is about three times the size of my HOUSE, but is not their main house! WOW! Anyway, one of the fun things about reading her blog is that she is constantly doing giveaways and the only thing you have to do to enter is leave a comment and viola! you're entered in the random drawing to win 1 of 4 fabulous $350 gift cards to Pottery Barn or something great like that.

My whiiinnnnnnnne comes in to play here in that I'm forever missing her giveaways by one day. One. Stinkin'. Day. Not that I think I'll actually win, because I honest to Pete never win anything, ever...ok, that's not true, I won a TG&Y costume contest dressed as a California Raisin when I was 12...but that doesn't stop me from commenting and trying to win PW's contests because the prizes are always so great. But I don't know how many times I've logged on to her blog and the post title is !!!ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS!!! and every time I just want to wail!

Oh well, maybe some day I'll win! At least I'm not wasting money on the lottery!

The whine is finished.

Do you know about Google Reader? It allows you to enter in all the blogs you follow, and then you just log into one website and it has all the people who have posted since you last logged in right there on one page. I use it and just log in once a day or so and get to see everyone that has posted something in the last 24 hours. It's so much faster than going to each person's blog, and you see them as soon as the person puts it on their blog. Just a thought.

I feel your pain...I am always trying to check in and see what's she's up to and get my name in on one of those awesome draws, but NOPE...Always see that "TIME'S UP!". Damn it! Might have to look into that google reader!

That's why I have blogs I read on an RSS feed reader. I get the posts as soon as they are posted and don't have to go to their blog to read them.

She does have a lot of give aways, but gets so many comments that I don't even bother..maybe I should!! I can't imagine the money she is makng off of her blog with all of these companies!
