May Poll

12 May May Poll

I think the Internet is punishing me for the bad pun in the subject line. I’ve been trying to post all morning and keep getting an error message. Even the photo, chosen before I encountered the technical issues, mocks me.

So, here I am, fiddling about inside the guts of Blogger’s software and praying things work. I guess we won’t know until I hit “post” for the hundredth time.

Anyway, this attempt at organization started the whole schemozzle:

Time for some spring reorganizing. Yesterday, I added a “Gluten-free” category and was surprised to see 48 recipes qualified. Not bad for a girl with a penchant for cookies and cakes. Of course, my obsession with ice cream bumped up the stats.

Over the next couple of months I’ll be tweaking the site a bit more. My previous multi-media poll indicated you didn’t really want videos, podcasts or an apron with my smiling face on it. You seem to be more words and photos people, so I’m looking at text-based options this time.

From today until the end of the month, I’m running a poll. It’s on the left, near the top, just under my profile information. Vote for as many items as you like (there are a whopping 3 to choose from) and feel free to make suggestions of your own. When the dust settles, I’ll begin implementing the requested items. That is if I can get organized…

    First of all, thanks for pointing out the pun. I laughed only when you mentioned it because my gray matter has turned to cotton.

    I also laughed because when I got back from my last conference, I bought a book on organizing one’s workspace. Then I promptly lost it. It’s still missing.

    Good luck disemboweling Blogger.

    Well, the internet does not like puns.
    Good Luck.

    Well, THAT was a disaster. One chunk of text. Sigh…

    Cheryl, thanks for sharing your story. I’d do something like that if I were organized enough to buy a book on the subject.

    History145, I need all the luck I can get with this.

    CrazyBunnyLady, the Internet has set me straight. I have been dually pun-ished. (Doh! Just doomed myself with that one!)

    Oooh, I love a good poll. I’m tempted to vote for the printable recipes option … but since I haven’t figured out how to do that myself – who am I to ask?!

    oh, oh…I might be the odd blogger out. I’m an organizational freak. I have systems for my systems. I drive my husband crazy and he, in turn, makes me insane since his system is much less ‘structured’.

    But, I digress….I say, set your blog up the way you like it and add the features that you’d like to see on other blogs. That way it will reflect your outlook and not ours.

    Diva, attachments have been a huge limitation with Blogger. I finally found a fix. Email me if you want details.

    Dana, I envy your organizational skills! I love all sorts of features but am trying to work smarter not harder. No sense investing time into something people won’t use.
