Polls, Blog E-mails, And Good Posts

I've got alot of blog housekeeping to do here, so just bear with me. I'll try to highlight the critical points.

Did you know that there is a way that anyone can find out the e-mail address that is associated with your blog? I know this because I tested it out with my blog. This isn't a big deal if you sign into your Blogger account with a specific blog e-mail, but if you sign in with a private e-mail address, this is a problem.

When I originally signed up for Blogger, I signed up with a private e-mail address, because I was inexperienced in blog security and I was naive. But I'd really rather not have the whole world know that e-mail.

So I scoured the internet (okay, I actually just searched the Blogger help boards), to find out how to transfer my Blogger account from one e-mail address to another. The actual transfer wasn't too hard, but transferring the blogs I follow got kind of sticky - so if any of you noticed weird things going on with your followers list in the last couple weeks, it might have been me fixing my accounts.

If any of you have your blog associated with a private e-mail account and are interested in changing it, I can post a how-to. Just let me know.


I never posted the results to the last poll!

The question was "What would be included in your dream vacation?" And the results are:

-Trip to the beach/tropical destination - 30 (44%)
-Trip to the mountains/wilderness - 10 (14%)
-European tour - 23 (33%)
-Luxury hotel - 11 (16%)
-RV trip across America - 6 (8%)
-Cruise - 14 (20%)
-Disney World - 5 (7%)
-Pure relaxation only - 9 (13%)
-Lots of site-seeing - 6 (8%)
-Other - 3 (4%)

I wonder if there would be a way to combine all of these answers into one vacation? Because as I look at the question now, I'm really not sure which answers I'd pick - all of them look good to me. I think I'd like to go on trips that fit into each category at some point in my life, so maybe my "dream vacation" would be spread out over several separate trips.

I know, I'm totally cheating by saying that!

Overall, the majority seems to prefer either a beach vacation, or a European tour. I think those two could be combined in one trip, actually. I'm sure some European countries have decent beaches.

I'm going to give the poll questions a rest for a little while, because clearly they are getting away from me. I asked that question a month and a half ago, and I'm just now posting the answers! This time of year things get a little hectic for me, so I'll probably bring the polls back when I know I can handle updating the questions again.

Lately I've come across so many good posts from my fellow bloggers. Seriously, you guys are coming up with some good stuff! I think I've starred more blog posts in the last few months than I ever have.

So in order to highlight some of the posts that stood out to me, I'm adding a "featured posts" section in my sidebar! When I find a post I really like, I'll feature it in the sidebar, and I'll put them all in one post at the end of the year. I'll update the list every couple weeks or so.

Let me just say that I've read alot of great posts lately - these are just a few of them! I'll be adding more as I remember them and as I read new ones.


Okay, I think that's all the housekeeping I have. I am off to the zoo today with two friends! We thought we'd take our babies, and it's a good chance to visit. Wyatt is too little to appreciate the animals, but it'll still be fun.

Happy Wednesday!
