If you didn't read Running Ricigs post Yes I Strap Laser Pointers on my dog then you need to. I was laughing so hard about it yesterday I was nearly crying, then I would think about it again and just crack up. Did anyone else read that and just love it? Worth a read.
Happy Birthday to my baby sister Jessica today. Less than a month until you are here!
Okay now the three :)
1. I tried the vanilla latte flavored Click yesterday...YUM! If you are a coffee lover this is really yummy. Much better than some of the other kinds and flavors I have tried. Doesn't have an after taste, maybe a little strong on the coffee flavor so I will try to water it down a little more next time. I think I may order some more. I like it!
2. I got in a 6.6 mile run yesterday. I hate point anything runs unless it is a 5k or 10k or half marathon. I like them to be neat little 5 mile, 7 mile etc runs. Now looking at that number I am once again irked. Really I couldn't do .4 more. I think I had some rational for it at the time, like I needed to get home and make the kids some lunch. Priorities!
3. Has anyone else graded their blog? There is a website blog.grader.com that grades your blog. I am kind of embarrased to say it gave me a 59. A fifty-freaking-nine. I got an "F"? This drives me a little crazy. I was an "A" student kind of girl in school. I got my first B in 5th grade and was so embarrassed. It was in science. Biology. Ugh. I didn't get all A's in school but mostly and graduated third in my class. Almost 2nd. I am a little competitive. I can't help it, I like to win. I get that from my Dad. My husband hates playing cards with me, he says I gloat too much. (Is it my fault I am so good at cribbage?)
It did say my blog was ranked 266,709 out of the approximately 911,895 other blogs that they have graded. That isn't too bad I figure for only being around since April. They also said my posts could be a little wordier. and here I was worrying about writing too much all the time and boring people. An average of 489 words a post is too short. Great now I want a work counter on here when I type. It was fun info to look at but this is supposed to be a blog for fun so I have decided that "F" they gave me is one for fun. I have a fun blog. This isn't school after all!
|Can you read it, I know it is a little blurry. Sorry|
EDIT: I checked again this morning before I posted this, I am obsessive like that, and suddenly I have an "A". What? So overnight I went from a 59 to a 96? I'll take it! Now I have an A for awesome! Not sure what the difference overnight was and now I am a little skeptical. Unless it had something to do with my recent domain name change and it was just catching up? Now I am 23,942 out of 911,893 blogs that they have graded.
Am I gloating..oops. I feel like I whined about nothing now. Who are they to grade people's blogs anyway?
Have you graded your blog? Want to? go HERE, check it out I dare you :)
What is your favorite protein powder?
Do you like your runs to be nice even numbers too?
blog grader? Do I really want to know!!! ACk!ReplyDelete
Man, I'm already addicted to my grades with my grad courses, and now you throw that at me?! Totally gonna check that out later, but if I fail and end up in tears, I'm coming back to you! ;)ReplyDelete
Whoa, my blog got a terrible grade! How depressing, lol.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tag! I feel so important (and funny, which is my main goal in life).
I was an A student and borderline obsessive about it. So, do I really want my blog graded? Maybe not.ReplyDelete
Yes. I like even number runs. I will always go the extra distance to make it even but wouldn't consider cutting a run short to make it even. OCD much?
I had done the blog grader awhile ago and I had a failing grade then all of a sudden I am a 92. Who knows?ReplyDelete
hmmm, I curious over what my grade is, but at the same time, I don't want to know : )ReplyDelete
Ha! I got a 27 for my grade. I like it that way :pReplyDelete
I give your blog an A! I just tried it, but it was weird - I didn't get a score like that! Just an analysis....apparently I need to try harder too. Whoops.ReplyDelete
I always like my runs to be even numbers whenever possible, definitely.
I don't think I want to know my blog's grade :-) But, I'd give yours an A for sure :-)ReplyDelete
I hate ending runs in point anything. Yesterday I was planning a 15 minute run and I tried so hard to at least make it to a .25.
I'm not sure I WANT to know my blog's grade :) It might give me a complex, hehe...ReplyDelete
Your blog is awesome, definitely an A :) I just tried it…I think I have to wait for a report, nothing happened?ReplyDelete
I always want my runs to end on a whole number and I like my runs to be even numbers or multiples of 5….nothing that ends in a 1, 3, 7, 9….I'm not sure why.
I got a 24...ah well...Guess it can only go up from there :)ReplyDelete
1. How do you get readers? Im still struggling to get my name out there.ReplyDelete
2. I want to put my blog under its own domain. Where did you start?
Haha I got a 27! Oops. :)ReplyDelete
Hahaha! You are exactly like me. I really like my runs to be an even distance too. Don't know why it matters, but it does!ReplyDelete
ha ha that is hilarious about the blog grade. I do not even dare check mine.ReplyDelete
And yes I used to be OCD about running even numbers but the more that I run the more I really don't care. :)
I don't think I want to grade my blog - I'd totally obsess about it! Good for you going from an F student to A in one day! You should be proud! hehe...ReplyDelete
I hate point anything runs AND if I am doing an out and back I HAVE to run and touch the post, the mile marker, or whatever I am running to before I can turn around and go back....maybe I should see someone about this...
I'm pretty sure I don't want to know my blog grade!! I don't know if I can resist checking it out, though.ReplyDelete
I can stop at a point-something distance as long as it is equivalent to a race distance- such as 6.2, 13.1, etc. Otherwise I have to end on the mile.
I don't even want to know what grade my blog would get :P lol and I love that dog laser postReplyDelete
I got a 27! Glad to see some of your followers are similarly "low"! Maybe that's why I have 59 followers... Alas...ReplyDelete
Ok, so my blog fails too. Not sure that I am terribly shocked by it. My pictures, links, and word count, as well as titles all seemed to be OK, but I don't have my own domain since I use blogger. I don't have twitter or email subscriptions. Those were two big downfalls.ReplyDelete
I am scared do my personal site. It will probably fair even worse since no one but me and my MIL read it.
I hate running portions of miles too, with the exception of one of my standard routes that was 3.4 miles long. It had another loop within it that if I doubled/tripled ect, it would turn into whole numbers. My friend Cristina has the same problem, only worse. Especially when biking. She can only end on a factor of 10, but not 90, she will have to go 10 more to get to 100.
im not going to grade my blog because im pretty sure I would get like a 10. and ignorance is bliss when knowing how lame my blog is. I hate not finishing on a full mile too, it drives me crazy. I'll either stop the Garmin early because I'm actually home or keep going...sometimes around the parking lot just to finish it offReplyDelete
Oh you ARE so competitive! Funny Girl.ReplyDelete
I'm super competitive as well. Like a freak at board games. I have actually cried from being so happy about getting a yahtzee!ReplyDelete
I think it's hard to grade a blog because everyone likes different things.
i'm OCD about grades so i probably don't need to go see a big F for my blog!ReplyDelete
Well, at least you're above Julie Arts, huh?!?!? :)ReplyDelete
I think it depends on if you link a billion social media websites to your blog...but I am too manic to deal with that many sites. Glad you're now an A - yay!
oh I did this once and I dont remember my score but it sent an email with everything I needed to fix...just reading it gave me a headache!!!ReplyDelete
I like my runs to be a pretty perfect number I will run up and down my driveway to make it even if I have to!!!
type A personality over here
I don't know if this is right!! It told me my average post was 43 words...lol. That's just a LITTLE OFF! It also told me I don't have a Facebook link on my blog! So random!ReplyDelete
I don't think I could face it! I'm bad enough about checking my visitor stats regularly!ReplyDelete
I also like to run in even numbers. I was an A student in school. I also did poorly on my blog grade, a 49. I doubt it will go up. Your blog deserves an A+!!!ReplyDelete
seems crazy it would change over night, that is a little crazy but either way good job!! Funny that website even exists!ReplyDelete
