What Will You Think

When I share a big pet peeve. . .

I love blogging. I love the blogging world, but you know what I just dread? Opening the blog with the automatic play list. . . to me it's like pulling up to someone at a stop sign and having to hear his music. I know, I know, I'm totally sitting on someone's last nerve by sharing this, but I just have to say that although I love music and I've never been offended (yet) by any music I've heard on any blog I've personally visited, but I almost jump out of my skin everytime I load a blog and their music starts blaring at me. . .

Okay, enough of that.

A TUTORIAL for my Clippy Boards is coming soon! Thank you for your requests. I promise to deliver. My little Walker man is having his tonsils and adenoids out on Friday, so it may be a few days, but it will appear here!!!

On a side note:

No one in the US has my name. There are 3,035 people in the U.S. with the first name Rachele. Statistically the 3176th most popular first name.
More than 99.9 percent of people with the first name Rachele are female.
There are 27,317 people in the U.S. with the last name Funk.
Statistically the 1298th most popular last name. There are 0 people in the U.S. named Rachele Funk. While both names you entered were found in the database, neither was common enough to make it likely that someone in the U.S. has the same name. If you'd like to find about your name, visit HERE.

I did pretty well at naming my kids too. . . No one has the name Mikensee (exactly) and few are named Wyatt and even fewer Walker. Jessica on the other hand has 66 people in this country with her exact name. . . My hubby ranks up there too, but with a name like Mike we knew it wasn't looking good!

AND, One last thought:

My friend Elaine sent me these:

And if I could I would send them to you! Aren't they beautiful?

I must say I agree with you on the music thing. I now always have my speakers on mute. Love the flowers! -Sparks

That is so funny you wrote that about the automatic playlist ... I was just telling my SIL that she needed to take hers off or disable it!! When my girlfriend added one in her sidebar that you actually have to click on to hear I applauded her ;) When I am blog surfing at 1 AM (which is standard for me) I do not need my family awakened by music that I did not choose to listen to!!!!! Can't wait for your tutorial - so cute! And I would love to find out how she did those flowers (or where she ordered them) ... they are gorgeous and SO creative!!

Interesting, I never thought about it before. I've always had music on mine because I like to listen to it while I'm on the computer. I've only ever received compliments from people telling me they listen to my blog while surfing the net. I never thought about how annyoing it might be to some. I appreciate your saying something.

I have to admit when I firt read that I thought, oh well, can't they just push stop--what's the big deal, but then I really thought about it and realize that I too am a little irritated when that happens and I am someone with music on mine--LOL! I just changed mine over so it doesn't automatically play. A very easy change to make. Then if someone wants to, they can listen, but they don't jump out of their computer chair when it automatically starts ;)

Ok, I didn't mean to write you a book, but I wanted to say thanks for bringing something to my attention I never thought about before.
