Late Tuesday night I added a widget to Straight From Hel – a Networked Blogs widget. You can see it in the sidebar. It wasn’t hard to add. You can google “Networked Blogs” to find where to go to get the code (or click the link above), then add it to your own, if you’re on Facebook. I’m pretty new to Facebook, but thought I’d give it a try.
I’m happy to report it’s working.
When I signed up for it, I also signed up to follow about three or four blogs that I recognized. Being the neophyte that I am, I thought my new widget would show the blogs I’m following. It doesn’t. It shows the blogs following me.
When I went back to my blog to see the pics of the blogs I had followed, all I saw was my “giant head,” as I call my avatar picture. Just me. I kept coming back to look at it ‘cause it made me laugh. It was like I was stalking myself.
I sent an email to the BBTCafe and told them about my giant head stalking myself and about five of them went right over and followed me. So my giant head is not alone now.
I thought I’d post about this because it shows how wonderful cyber friends are. They may not live close enough to stop by for coffee, but they offer advice, cheer you on when you’re stuck on problem, and step in when a giant head is stalking you.
I’m trying to remember to check each blog I visit to see if they have a Networked Blogs widget so I can follow them and to watch my widget so if someone follows me I can follow them back.
Hopefully, if I keep doing that, eventually the giant head will disappear from sight.
