Big Blog Browsing Butt

I have done it! I have visited all of the nearly 800 blogs that are participating in the One World One Heart International Blog Giveaway! I always used to call my butt "Browser Butt", but now I'm sure my butt size has increased due to my lack of physical activity through blog-hopping, my fingers may have lost some weight though! It is so amazing to see how many generous bloggers, worldwide, are participating in this amazing event. I have been blown away by the awesome talent that is out there, and the amazing giveaways they are offering.

I have been honoured with a blog award by Linda. It is the The Marie Antoinette, Real Person, A Real Award, thanks so much Linda.

Heather Robinson said...

I am still laughing at your "browsing butt". Wow...there are so many entries in this event this year that one can't help but have a browsing butt getting through them all. I just want to tell you how honoured I am to receive this award. Congratulations to you for receiving it...a well deserved honour.

I, too, have just finished visiting all of the OWOH blogs... whew! 'Course my butt was already fairly wide =) The best thing about being done is now I can get back to my art table and so something productive! But still, there were so many interesting blogs discovered on this journey that I need to go back and revisit them again...

Congratulations on your blog award! I do hope you're doing well. I am anxious about my blog buddies over in Australia. I'm hoping you're all alright.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. Your picture always looks so happy and cheerful. It is a real "pickmeup" and appreciated. I love the rubber banded, rolled and painted fat book pages. You are a busy woman! Hope the new job goes well and all is well in your part (and everywhere there, actually) of Australia. - Jeanne in Oregon

WOW, that is a lot of blogs, I am so impressed.

Christy said...

you are so funny. you should do more 'lmao' to get rid of that big ole butt. hehe

Linda said...

Boy I know what you mean by big blog butt. I feel the same way plus I think my wrist was worn out from using the mouse to click on all the blogs. But it was worth it, most were simply fantastic.

By the way, you picked some great sites to pass on the award.
