No one cares about your blog

So here I am... biting the bullet and starting a blog.  For purely selfish reasons, of course.  I need a place to post scrapbooking layouts for all of the gazillions of blog challenges that I have recently discovered.  I won the November pagemaps contest (see below), and I received a whole bunch of really cool crap from My Little Shoebox.  And as I repeatedly fondled my FREE stuff, I got to thinking...  Why don't I become a scrapbook challenge and contest whore?  I mean, if I'm going to create a layout anyway, I might as well enter a challenge at the same time.   I LOVE free stuff.  Hell, I got some buy one get one free Bandaids at Rite Aide yesterday, and you would have thought I had won the lottery.  Well, the scratch off ticket kind of lottery, not the power ball, but I digress...  

I guess I should explain my blog name, although I think it's pretty straight-forward.  I get really irritated when women criticize their own scrapbooking.  Because damn, I think my scrapbooking is the BEST!  No one can tell my stories like I can, and my layouts are FUNNNNNY!  I scrapbook for me.

And as someone who owns a t-shirt that says, "No one cares about your blog," I am not delusional enough to think that anyone will care about what I post here.  But hey, if I make someone laugh or scratch their head in confusion, that would be pretty cool. 

Now, I'm off to figure out how to make this blog look less assy.

Good luck with your new adventures in scrapbooking and blogging. Your posts on the ACOT boards almost always make me laugh and occasionally scratch my head. I can't wait to see how you dress this place up.

Now you need to come over to the darkside and do digi - at least make yourself a blog header!! I made mine at 370 pixels by 274 pixels and it fit right in one of blogger's templates.

Sandy said...

"I scrapbook for me" ... my new sb mantra. Became a follower since stalking is too creepy. Have fun de-assing the design. Keep the pink, though! It suits you.

I'm not following. In fact, I'm doing the exact opposite of following. Really. ;-)
