Ok, a couple of things...
First off, I am sick. No pity party needed, I just wanted to thank whichever one of you it was who sneezed in my mouth this week. 'preciate it.
Next, A Problem:
I have been experiencing a problem with posting...when I publish a post, it takes more than 8 hours to hit Google Reader OR that sidebar widget that reads "8 hours ago"...Have any of you ever had that problem? At first I thought it was a feedburner problem, but now I dont think it is. Any ideas?
I will be instituting a couple of changes to the Tuesday's Tribute program from now on... The first being that I will be offering a prompt each week from now on, to those of you who aren't exactly sure of what to post about, but who like to be a part of what the Tuesday Tribute is about. Specifically, that on Tuesday, it's not about you.
Your Tuesday's Tribute options:
1. Anything/Anyone you feel is worthy of a POSITIVE tribute. Friend? Family? Marshmallow Fluff?
2. Anything/Anyone you feel is worthy of a NEGATIVE tribute. Politician? Celebrity?
3. And this week's prompt: a blog or website that you love. I love it when you recommend blogs or websites, it's like a treasure hunt. I have one that I really want to share this week, so this is what I will be doing.
And the big news:
Each week from now on I will be picking my favorite Tribute from all the submissions, and featuring the link to that post in a newfangled sidebar button...thingy. Whether I love your writing, whatever you are tributing, or if you just made me laugh out loud, i will pick one post per week, and feature it in my center bar directly above. Just a little linky love each week to thank you for participating in Tuesday's Tribute.
Have fun with it.

posthumous pointerTo laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded. - Emerson
