Here Kitty Kitty Kitty....Aubrey?

Once again, I'm sorry for not posting last night. I was working on pics to post and all the sudden I started feeling ill. I was very dizzy feeling, and sick to my stomach, it wasn't fun. So I decided to get Bree to sleep, and head right to bed myself, blogging and pictures could wait...

My daughter Aubrey thinks she is a kitty. First thing out of her mouth when I get her out of bed in the mornings is, "Meow", same goes for after her naps, "Meow". Off and on (moreso ON) during the day, she will "Meow" and crawl around, she will want to be petted, and when she is, she purrs. Its very cute...but also odd! This has been going on for a while now. Should I go along with it all the time? Or try to get her to stop? I guess its not hurting anything, I just don't want her to be in total kitty mode all the time... She will also sit on the floor, pull her foot up, lick it, and then wipe by her cheeks like she is a cat giving herself a bath...I don't think this is normal. LOL What are your thoughts?

I've been itching for change...again. I kinda like my blog look now, but part of me thinks its a bit 'busy'. I also get frustrated that I can not post pics the size I like without part of them being chopped off on the side. AND it totally bugs me that my button doesn't match my blog... I'm weird like that. I need things to match. So I've been thinking about making some changes yet again. Not sure what to do yet exactly though, so I'm looking for your opinions. Let me know what you think about these ideas:

*Should I go with NO background images at all? If I go with no background, would YOU rather see white or a color?

*Should I go WITH a background image that is solid, not stuff on sides, just one thing all over?

*Would it bother you to see advertising on my blog? I've thought about this a lot. I don't have many followers or visitors to make a lot of money, but a few cents here and there might come in handy. I mean, since I love to blog, why not make a few cents doing it, since I'll be blogging anyways?

*What are your thoughts on Vlogs? (if you don't know what that is, it's a video of me talking instead of me typing what I'd say here)

*What would YOU like to see, or NOT see on my blog...your feedback is appreciated.

Ok, I promised the other night I'd bore you guys with pics and videos on my next post, so I'm sticking to my word...be prepared to be bored :) I've put some of the gazillion pics I took the other day into a few collages.

You are so obsessed with change. If it isn't your living room or the girls room, you are wanting to change your blog. LOL. I can't say anything, I usually change my blog every season anyway.

I don't think that your blog is too busy. In fact, if there was a Word Press version of this, I would use it in a heartbeat but I also have an easy way to adjust my photo sizes so that they don't cut off. I have never used your system so I don't know how it works.

I don't care about ads as long as they don't overwhelm the site. Are you thinking something like Google Text Ads? Keep in mind that most of those ad things won't let you cash out until you have accumulated a certain amount of money first. I believe Google Ads are something like $100. Ryan had the Google Ads on the forums for a year and didn't hit the minimum before I told him to remove them.

The girls are absolutely gorgeous and always have lots of fun. I love the silly photos.

I wouldn't worry about Bree. It's fantastic that she has such a great imagination. I would suppose it is no worse than having an imaginary friend. Let her pretend. :)

I love your cute pics Renee!! I too obsess about change. I'm a gosh darn perfectionist, not with other people's blogs but with my own! It's a nightmare really!

I think having a white background wuold be good. Don't get me wrong, I love color! But I've seen many articles about having a blog with just a simple background, a white one to be exact, is easier on the eyes. Go figure, mines not white! :) Ad's don't bother me one bit, especially if they are placed in good spots. Not in between the posts, or those little annoying pop up boxes that you have to 'x' out of. Seriously though Renee, your blog is your own! You always make it look cute! Keep on keeping on sista! :)

PS Maybe Bree was a cat in a past life? haha! I think she is very creative! And that it's totally normal for her age! Ava will pant like a dog a lot lately! :)

I am the same way about needing changes sometimes. I think something a little less busy is a good idea, as sometimes the cute daisies on the side almost block your words. And we don't want that to happen! So I guess my opinion would be something solid, with color, and some funk. :)

As for the ads, I think, if you can make money while blogging then go for it. I was thinking of doing the same thing actually, but I also don't have many followers yet, so I might wait for a little while. But some money here and there would be fantastic. So, my opinion is go for it!!

Vlogs=awesome. Love them. I think they're very fun and sometimes funny. They usually make me laugh. ...like the one I did once. haha. um yeah don't know if I'll ever do another, but I will post random funny videos.

I love videos. And pictures. Your girls are gorgeous. You're so blessed!

Do you think this is a long enough comment? :)

I wouldn't worry about Aubreys kitty thing, if you remember about the same age Izack did it (pretty much the same way you are talking about). I wouldn't worry about it at all.

As for your blog I think its cute.

Great pics! I like your background, but if you HAD to change, I like white too. NO black. It drives me bonkers. (just my 2 cents)

If you want advertising, go for it!
