The one in which Tova gets all kinds of awesome new readers

Yesterday my blog was Blogger's Blog of Note, and it made my freaking day! I have all kinds of new, sexy readers, and I'm really enjoying my blog's new found "fame." Thank you all so much for stopping by and for your comments and emails (except for the one that just said "Chicken!" and had a link to some food website. I'm not quite as appreciative of that one.)

As you've all probably figured out from my last post, I'm in the process of moving to a new state. My husband, the amazing Mr. Darling, is graduating from medical school to become a real-live-doctor, and so we're moving next week! Fortunately, some guest bloggers have stepped up to offer to blog during Tova's Moving Extravaganza. That's lucky, because if I'd gotten all of these new readers and then disappeared for two weeks, I probably would've lost you all again. And that would've been sad.

All of the posts that show up for the next two weeks are pre-scheduled, as I assume that I'll be without internet for at least a week or two (boo!). But if you Twitter... Tweet... Twit... whatever... follow me, 'cause I'll be tweeting from my phone during the move! Hurray!

Once I'm reconnected with the wonderful world-wide web, I'll be stopping by more of your blogs to comment, look around, and spread some bloggy love. In the meantime, read these packing and moving stories, and imagine me walking up and down multiple flights of stairs with all of my worldly possessions. And please stick around until I come back! I look forward to getting to know you. Stay tuned for Tova's Moving Extravaganza...

Congratulations on being a Blog of Note and best of luck with your move! I've been through quite a few of those and they can be a nightmare!

And while you're gone I'm sure all us new visitors will enjoy the time perusing around your blog which, from the couple of posts I've read, seems quite entertaining!

cheers!

UGH. I feel for you. Moving is the EFFING WORST. Good luck, and we'll be waiting for you!

Congrats, Tova! And good luck on the move!! We'll see you soon!

Blog of Note, huh? Yeah, I'm impressed. Congratulations.

Good luck with your move!

Congrats, Tova!! I generally check Blog of Note, and forgot yesterday. That's awesome.

And I'll totes have to follow you on twitter. I'm not RecoveringActor on Twitter though... but oh well.

I gotta tell you I'm loving Twitter too.

Wow, that is super cool. Congrats on the feature!

Best of luck with the move, too.

Yay for making Blogs of Note! Of course, that's how I found you... but what hooked me was your "Snarky A's Totally Awkward Tuesday" post. I was laughing so hard and loudly because that is something that would TOTALLY happen to me!! Luv it and luv you, bloggy style of course ;) When you're all moved, come on by and visit.
Cheers!

Congrats on being a Blog of Note--and for shouting out to your new readers! :) Moving does suck, and let me tell you--it doesn't get any easier if you do it frequently. My Dumpling and I just moved April 1 of this year, and I had had my wisdom teeth removed the day before due to sudden infection. That was really a special day. I hope yours is much less painless!

It's actually kind of nice that you're taking a break for a couple weeks right after a bunch of new readers found you--this gives us a chance to browse old posts and read up a bit before you come back with current stuff.

Looking forward to it!

Glad you were Blog of Note, or I wouldn't have found you! I like how you write and I like your anonymity. I think I would have done the same thing, if my MIL told me read my blog on the sly (God, I hope she doesn't! Although my blog doesn't have too much about her, but just enough that I could be in trouble).

Can't wait until you get moved, and have internet access again! In the meantime, I'll be reading the guest posts and your archives!

You have 300 + readers now (including me-- how can you really be 2 hours from the nearest one of us?) Can you hint where you're at? I'm going guess not BFE because you keep saying city... but then again some people call it a river, others call it a crick.

hello from halfway around the globe! :) I find your blog through this bloggers of note thing, and it's very entertaining! Good luck with the move, and if you ever find yourself in the Philippines, just drop me a line :)

Morgan the Muse said...

Tova, holy smokes!!! Congrats on being the blog of note! It seems weird being one of he people who was always here... can I say 'hey, I read her before she was famous, dude,'? Seriously!

Vicki Lansen said...

Very funny, insightful blog. You remind me of who I think I used to be long ago before I lost my sense of humor and half my brain cells and sanity. Perhaps had blogging been around "back in the day" I'd have made something of myself. Instead, I am a 50-year old blogger who pretends that the total visitors to my blog is a daily count.

I enjoy your blog immensely!

Congratulations on being "Blog of Note" on Blogger! Best wishes to you and your husband as you begin this new journey.

Congrats on being a Blog of Note!
Moving's never much fun but it'll be great and sure is to write stories about it.

Good luck!
Read you later - so to speak.

Liza said...

So very exciting. Glad to be introduced to a great new anonymous blogger. These are my all time favorite. In the process of moving myself. Check out my little space for my moving stories. Congrats on your new found fame.

Oh, by the way I love what you put in your profile about your blog. Just fabulous. Way to get around your mother in law. Love it!

LegalMist said...

Blog of note? That's awesome - and well-deserved, Tova!

Good luck with the move - may all your possessions arrive unbroken.

Except that godawful plastic bust of Beethoven that your mother-in-law's great aunt Ethel gave you as a wedding gift that you secretly hate but have to pretend you love every time your mother-in-law visits you... or whatever equivalent crap you have that you wish you could get rid of! ... we'll just hope (pretend?) that junk gets lost or broken!
