Candy News, Sales News, Bloggy News and a Question

So some bits and bobs for you today and perhaps a card later if I get a wiggle on 🙂

First of all, just to let you know that Emma has a fantastic sale over at Sassy Crafts with everything – yes, I said everything – reduced. The sale ends on the 12th Jan so you better get over there, as soon as you have finished reading this (of course!).

Next a list of some blog candy on offer from some lovely people:

  • Tasha is celebrating her birthday (Happy Birthday Tasha) and is giving a massive £50 Glitterpot token to a lucky blogger on her blog Millie’s Magical Moments (finishes on the 10th Jan)
  • Rach over at Papercrafts by Rach is giving away some lovely trims and bits and pieces including some fab Sugar Nellie stamps (finishes on the 10th Jan)
  • Simon Says Stamp have a huge prize on their blog and all you have to do is look at all their lovely stamps and say which is your favourite 🙂 (finishes 10th Jan)
  • Emma is celebrating 3000 hits in just a few months of blogging – way to go girl – with some lovely SU products on her blog Something Sweet (finishes on the 15th Jan)

Is it me or has blog candy gotten more and more extravagant over the last few months? LOL. I will be posting my own celebratory candy soon – promise!

And now for the Bloggy News:
Have you seen that Clare Curd is starting her new range of crafty products on the 1st March? How exciting it must be to launch your own products 🙂 She is setting up a blog for the range called Stampin’ Chic, so go check that out too!

Finally a question:
How do you all read/visit the blogs you like? I held off doing the ‘Follower’ thing on my blog for a bit because I had signed up to my blogs list on Google Reader. But I now have both! So I have a ‘Follower’ list and my original reader list and see them both in Google Reader.

However, this means that I have some of the blogs I read in one list, some in the other and some in both. I thought I was being so clever – everything was organised into folders, I’m going to need to redo them – hey ho.

From my 325 subscriptions (I actually thought I had more!), I have apparently read 3,356 blog posts in the last 30 days – so that is what I do with my time? Mmm, think I’m going to need to do a sort-out very soon!

    You really do read a lot of blogs! I tend to follow and try to keep up with all the new posts – but it is so hard. I also usually nip over to people’s blogs as they comments on mine – well, you never know what you may have been missing, do you?
    Oh – glad those scissors turned up. ;o)

    I have just gone over to a followers list and find I struggle to visit everyone, as I also try to visit everyone who enters the challenges I am dt for. I have cut down to commengting on only one post on eah blog I visit, but it still takes more time than crafting does. Oh dear is there an answer

    I have so many collected blogs I can’t possibly visit them all, I have followers ones I follow, fav blogs in my side bar and over 1000 in google reader.

    Haven’t looked at google reader for weeks now, but that is mainly due to broken PC and using my son’s.
