Bragging of sorts

Well of course it’s braggin, now I’m not a natural bragger regardless of what you think you heard. But, don’t ya just love the but, not like Sir Mix A Lot does but the other way. Y’all member when I told you about the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) rule changes? If not you can find my post here. Well anyways, in one of the paper magazines I subscribe to, The Writer, volume 123, Issue 2 (I love this magazine) on page 8 is an article about the FTC Rule Changes; and in Writers Digest Magazine (Feb 2010) on page14 titled "Blogger Beware ?" (I love this mag too) And, AND remember you heard it from me first (First is said a sing songy sorta way) and this is me bragging.

Okay so that’s all I got, my dear internets. Maybe not exciting to you but it was exciting for me.

And now tell me and all my dear internets what it is you brag about. I guess you can include your children if you must, but (hey there’s that but again) I was sorta hopping to hear something about YOU. Come on give us the scoop—What about You do You brag about?

FTC disclaimer: I was not compensated in any way for my reviews/opinions in this post.

Here's my brag: I can lie in bed for 24 hours straight and not feel any desire to leave it.

What? I consider that a major achievement.

Ha! I can brag that I dragged my tired little heiney out of bed this morning!

Seriously, this is a big deal. I, um, review books. SOMETIMES I am asked to review by book pubbers and they send me a comp or an ARC. I have not yet disclosed. But I will...

On the other hand, I really am having a tough time finding time to write, so MAYBE the FTC will find me in violation and send me to a nice, warm jail... sans kiddos, sans coworkers, sans grocery shopping and toilet-bowl swiping... Hmmm... Peace, Linda

Well today I get to brag that I caught a thief! Yep, my ISP was over charging me and I caught them and made them pay it back (sort of: we reached a deal).

Apart from that little victory, I like to brag that I have the sweetest hubby and son on the planet:)

I heard the FTC's new rules the day before I had planned to post a review, (that I did receive a review copy for), last summer, so I promptly inserted my little blurb before posting. I'm pretty sure it was you I heard it from first Paige. The only other review I've done since then was for Drain's Jack Rabbit Moon, which she didn't even know I was doing, and Geo liked my "snarky" note to the FTC about that one. [I know you know these people, so that's why I don't feel the need for introductions].
Anywho, I can't think of much more than my kids to brag on, 'cept maybe that I can crack a pretty mean whip sometimes. Hard to imagine, I know, I'm soooo sweet. ;)

About the only thing I can think of Paige is my cinnamon rolls. The smell of cinnamon leads people to my door.

One moment spent on my blog will probe what a fierce braggart I am. See my 3 new buttons?


However, if I do not thrust my magnificence upon the world, who will?? Therefore I perhaps do not so much brag as.. guide unsuspecting peeps to a land of funsterment and love?

(I received no financial compensation in the creation of this comment.)

I can brag about my husband Jimmy. He's like no other and waits on me hand and foot. My every wish is his desire to fill.
