Sunday Sidelines

So, in my little neck of the woods, it has rained and poured all weekend long. It could not have happened at a better time. I finished The Hunger Games and Catching Fire (both on the Kindle) and now I can start Mockingjay. The only review I allowed myself to read was rather negative, so I am a bit sad because I want it to be as good as the first two. If you have read the final book and would like to encourage me PLEASE leave me a little comment telling me how good it really is! But no spoilers, please.

Please visit Merit Badger to decide which badge you have already earned as a reader or a writer! I read through many of them and have decided that I have earned the Voracious Reader badge:

Sure, writers write. But they should read, too! Earn the “voracious reader” merit badge by giving yourself permission to refill your head with words every now and again.

Since I am always reading two or three books at a time, I think I have earned this one for sure. Visit this unique blog to see which badges you have earned!

I have one other question for you today...do you use Intense Debate for your comments, and if so do you like it better than the standard comment management on your platform?

Wishing you a great week ahead.

I have recently seen in my google reader Intense Debate being implemented but not entirely sure what the difference is. So will be checking back to see what your readers say.

Intense Debate is great ONLY WHEN it lets people actually access your site, it is also something that slows BLOG LOAD TIME and you lose people that way fast..... You can sign in and it spotlights the last blog post for the person who comments site, it allows email replies and also has a way to store all the comments once you sign up for the service.....

I tried it for 3-4 months and got only a few people commenting here and there forever because ID would kick their browser off before the blog would load and they stopped coming back....

Went back to basic blogger comments and all my posts starting drawing comments again....

Glad you came by CMash!

Thanks Jackie - I think you might be right!! I might hold off a bit before I do anything.
Thanks for your comment!

Thanks for stopping by, I am now following you as well. I did notice this week that there were an abundance of Cats on sites. So very cool. I miss my cats. My husband is allergic. :(
Have a great rest of the weekend.
