From Cuddlebuggary: Five Reasons Why Stats don't Matter and You Shouldn't Care

Breaking up with stats is hard to do but I did it a while ago. I keep the google follower on my sidebar because personally I find it easier to follow blogs that way so I like to keep the option open but I barely - if ever - read my stats. (except for searches that lead to my blog - I find those Hilarious!) I do think they are helpful if you request books though. As long as you keep a healthy attitude about it.

I find they make me try to blog a "certain way" and then it's not fun for me.


Take a look at this lawn dinosaur on Pinterest. Too cute! They dress him up on holidays and he’s even getting fan mail. LOVE it!

  1. Oh those pancakes look SO good (I say as I eat toast!).

    I love the CB post - follower stress is so not worth it!

    Have a fab week :-D

  2. I want that cupcake!!! Indy looks super cute w/the frisbee on his nose!

    I completely agree about stats. I do look at some if mine, but remind myself that I'm not in competition w/anyone, so it doesn't matter.

  3. Pancakes are the best food porn. I feel ridiculous saying this, but I have had SUCH A PANCAKE CRAVING over the past few months, when I previously was Team French Toast.

    Cupcakes never change, so I don't feel bad saying that one looks delicious. :P Your dogs are cute, too, but certainly not edible. Thank you for the giveaways and the great links - I love following discussions I haven't seen yet.

    1. Now I want French Toast! lol

      I'm so happy I don't live too close to a good cupcake place (the one pictured is from a French bakery about an hour away) I would eat WAY too many. Whenever I go to NYC for BEA I have one everyday. There are cupcake shops on every corner!

  4. You're like me. When new stuff comes, old must go.
    I love the pics!
    You have me thinking pancakes for dinner.

  5. I'm hoping to get a lot of blogging stuff done this weekend, but am thwarted so far. I made pancakes this morning - but not as beautiful as those -- YUM!

  6. HAPPY SUNDAY :D *runs around like crazy* Sunday is almost over *sad*

  7. Thanks for the fun post! I'm currently having a lazy Sunday reading Immortally Embraced by Angie Fox :)

  8. I agree, the pics are cute!! Right now I'm reading Scarla by BC Furtney. It's soooo good!!

  9. I am currently reading City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte. Very magical read!

  10. I am reading if you find me by emily murdoch :D

  11. I've got three books going right now: Dark Triumph, Poison, and The Collector. All are great so far! I kind of never want Dark Triumph to end, though. It's just as good as Grave Mercy.

    1. I have Dark Triumph and I want to read it NOW but I have a few books that I need to review first. It's driving me crazy and everyone seems to love it just as much as GM.

  12. Love finding new books to read and a new author.

  13. The Madman's Daughter. It is a retelling of The Island of Dr. Moreau.
    BTW- I love your shelties! What sweeties!

  14. SAT this weekend. Currently reading the forest of hands and teeth by Carrie Ryan
