I have another new widget on my sidebar.
This one will actually be a widget for ME. I can learn a new Italian word every day. This is awesome... at this rate I will be fluent by May (May 2020 maybe)

Which brings me to 'widgetmania'.
Y'all know exactly what I am talking about. Some bloggers have gone overboard with the widgets~ I'm afraid I am becoming one of them. There are widgets for every little thing, every award you have ever gotten, links to favorites, updated links to updated blogs, recipes lists, food searches, google searches...
What to do??
Somebody stop me!!


Sally said...

Yep. You've got a lot of widgets over there. *humming* :-)

Lisa said...

I think I need to get on the widget wagon...

Well, you have officially gone over the top. However, if it wre that easy to stop you from doing anything Bill would have done it years ago!

A better way to learn italian would eb to spend amonth there twice a year!

Oh this is neat...I need to brush up on my spanish...Daddy says cursing in Spanish is not being fluent...perhaps the Senor El Doctore has a point? Thanks for this. I'm reading Whistlestop yet again...sigh...will I ever read it and not learn something new? Doubtful!

Barb said...

I think that's a great ideal,I need to do that....Barb

LOL....who ever woulda thunk it?

hmmmm love the idea of learning Italian, I already have the hand action down..


Barbara said...

I tried to put that widget on my blog too but couldn't get it to work so I had to settle for writing about getting the word for the day via email.

Congratulations for being so computer/blogger savvy that you got this to work!

That's a very cool widget. I will have to come check out the word of the day on your blog every day :)

You certainly do have a lot of widgets! There might be a contest out there somewhere that you can win for the number of widgets on a blog :)

You do realize that when you are away I am going to be living vicariously through you. And your pictures. I am jsut as excited about your trip as you are. Oh...and to go antiquing there. Awesome!

If Kim (who does all my tech stuff) would give me a widget lesson, I might have one, too - maybe tech stuff would be a good project for my summer break. But an Italian word a day can't be anything but good - have fun with it.
