Welcome, Roll Call, a Giveaway, and an Adventure!

On behalf of everyone here at the Would-Be Writers Guild, I welcome you to our new home and I thank you for coming!  Sure, the walls are a little bare right now, but I hope you appreciate the fact that you can read my blog now without giving yourself a headache. (OK, I guess that could be debated, but bear with me.)

And since I'm paranoid that the few wonderful readers that I have will be lost forever to me, I'd like to take a little roll call to assure me that you've arrived here safe and sound.

But wait, there's more! If you leave me a comment, you're automatically entered to win a giveaway which will arrive in the form of a grab bag filled with some of my favorite delights.  (Don't worry guys, it's not all froo-froo girl stuff; you can enter too.)

In fact, I'm feeling so joyous/paranoid, I'm willing to give away two--that's right, TWO--grab bags!

Think that's all? You're wrong! For my inaugural post, I'm also going to play my favorite blog game, Choose Your Own Adventure Blog Post. Here are your choices:

The Tale of Old Urine

or

Cubing a Watermelon: A Video Tutorial 
(Now with Better Hair!)

Comments will be considered entries until Saturday midnight.  Thanks for coming, for commenting, and for playing!

I don't know how you'll improve on the zuz..um..zguz, er...the last video...but I vote another video!

Messy Jess said...

I'm so glad I didn't "lost" you! You're one of my favorite reads!

Christina said...

So happy about your new digs. And I hate buying watermelon due to the daunting task of cutting it up, so video is my vote!

wunderbug said...

i found you - welcome to blogger!

my vote is definitely for a video post. you're too funny. :)

(oh, and something you're gonna love about blogger is their followers gidget - if you love getting comments, just wait til you get new followers! suh-weet!)

Soul-Fusion said...

I'm here! And oddly excited about your move. For a while I was blaming the slow loading all brown screen on my work's internet connection that constantly gets bogged down for no good reason. Hooray for faster loading! Can't wait for the blog-warming party after you've had time to decorate. I'll sign up to bring cupcakes.
Oh, and since you have the greatest taste in favorite things that always turn into my favorite things, sign me up for the contest.
And while urine stories are generally hilarious, I think I'm ready for another video.

Keri said...

I am here Tiffany! I am one of those infamous blog stalkers. I always check your blog and enjoy your updates, but I never comment. Sorry. Please don't hate me. Thank you for the funny adventures! (Keri aka Heidi's mom)

marta said...

ooh, starting off on a clean slate is always fun. more videos please! and if i knew you in real life i'd be presenting you with a li'l pansy in a pot to say happy new home.

Shannon said...

I'll vote for urine.

But may I make a suggestion for a future post? A "How to host a writing club" would be great. Especially the part about getting willing participants who will come more than once. I can get 8th and 9th graders, but my attempt to get an adult group going has pretty much been a dismal failure for me.

Colie said...

Yeah... I found you on blogger! Welcome, and it's so much better for my eyes to read you over here...thanks.

My vote is for the watermelon video, definitely. please please please

The Coolest Allen Family said...

Here!

I am torn between these amazing choices. I guess I will choose the video. Video's are fun!

Welcome to blogspot!

emily said...

uh, the one with better hair. clearly.

The List Writer said...

I'm voting for urine - anything with 'Tale' in the title is going to be good.

Angie said...

At this point in my pregnancy, I'm always up for a good urine story. Do tell.

Kami said...

Video Tutorial Fo Sho! Welcome blogger blogger, welcome!

ps. Don't count me in the contest. Being your blog buddy is better than being a weiner...winner. :)

tiburon said...

Gotta be the pee.

Welcome to your new home!

And give me prizes.

aimee heff said...

You haven't lost me. You are a favorite.

I vote for both.

MiaKatia said...

Welcome to blogger! I want to see the new hair :)

Kristina P. said...

I am so happy you are here! I can finally read the text!

I'm A. said...

Yay! I'm happy you are here. It is much faster and easier to read...although I never would have left you no matter what. You are one of my most favorites.

Also...can I please win the grab bag? :)

Also again...I choose:

Cubing a Watermelon: A Video Tutorial
(Now with Better Hair!)

Dede said...

Am I going to be disqualified because I'm family? I hope not because I really want that grab bag.

Oh, and welcome home :)

laceyJ. said...

Cool! Welcome to blogger... I definitely choose:

Cubing a Watermelon: A Video Tutorial

SO curious about this one!

Mindi said...

MINDI. present and accounted for!

you had me at URINE.

Donna said...

Welcome to your new home!

As a mother of toddlers, I think I have a tale of old urine going on in our bathroom right now. Besides, my vote almost always goes to bodily fluid stories regardless...

rychelle said...

i love watermelon. i vote for that.

:)

Leslie said...

Yay!! You'd never lose me! I vote for the tutorial, but also for the suggestion on how to host a Would-Be Writer's group.

You're the best!!! And, "in this economy" it's good that you get to save a few bucks each month!

lizzie said...

oh, i am glad i was not lost. and i say video tutorial. i have a great way to cube a watermelon but i am always looking for improvement! congrats on the move.

Mari said...

Video tutorial for sure...loved the last one! I make your salad dressing weekly (from the last video). Glad you are still blogging away...

Christy said...

Mmmm, touch choice, but I think I want to see the hair. I choose video!

michele said...

pee please.

Mrs. Biscuit said...

But goody bags with froo-froo girl stuff are the best!!

I was all set to choose the urine...but then the chance to see a video was too tempting. Can I choose both??

Okay, I choose pee.

Kate said...

Here. Congratulations on your new home, hope nothing was damaged in the move.

I'm all for movies.

marialuigi said...

I'm here! I'm here! Here! No...here! You are also added to my google reader...la, la, love your bloggity-blog!

Becky said...

Well it looks like a fourth of your followers have found you! Congratulations on your new address. You'll love it here! As for your post- I choose the video as well. Anything so I can see my friend!

Britt said...

I've never commented before but, I sure do love your blog!

Kim said...

Wow, I'm like comment number 35. You are so popular. I have no vote but just hope to win whatever you are giving away.

Robin said...

chelle said...

Michelle Jones (Leslie's Ohio friend and your blog stalker)
*raises hand* HERE!
i VOTE FOR THE VIDEO. I think your georgeous and fun. As good as or even better than ol Bobby Flay!

Lindy-Lou said...

You can never lose your mama. I'm here and it's kinda fun to be here before the pictures are hung. Nice place. Easy to find. Can I do anything to help you get settled? Take the kids for the afternoon? i wish.

Tim and Jill said...

Hi, I vote for watermelon! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us.

katie said...

Watermelon.

That's all.

And I like videos.

Krista said...

watermelon only please.

talk of bodily functions makes me blush. i get flustered by such subjects. in a very uncomfortable way.

so yes, just watermelon.

thank you. :)

Artax said...

Well, if it still means anything way down at the bottom of a gazillion comments, I would like to vote for urine. I kind of feel obligated, after my recent potty humor post.

Aimee said...

I'm speaking up - not too usual for me! Thanks for changing sites, it is much easier to read. I would have kept reading anyway, but now it's easier!
I want a story - I vote for The Tale of Old Urine.

Simon said...

Congrats on the move.
Urine, please.

jennie w. said...

Glad to see the new digs. I love your vids!

autumn said...

I'm here! Umm...Urine is always more interesting than watermelon...but I don't think it would taste as good.

Tiffany said...

Present.
Pee is funny.

Jesse C said...

I'm here, and I feel like a failure for not fixing the layout issues. So sorry.

Angie said...

Hello Tiff. I have to say, this change has me a little rattled, but excited. And I can not believe that you currently have 48 comments. Honestly, I'm lucky to get 4.

I've saved your address on my blogs list, so it's here with me for good.

Tamara said...

I must confess I love your blog. I save reading it for bad days so it will cheer me up.

I'll have to vote for the tutorial...I'm all about tutorials.

Now that you're on blogspot I can become a full-fledged stalker...I mean follower.

Brittany said...

Followed you. Congrats on the new place. :)

Shua said...

Present. and the immature boy in me has to vote for the tale of old urine. lol, that sounds awesome.

Deborah said...

Who could resist a story about urine? Wait . . .

Travelin'Oma said...

I'm here!

Heather said...

I am so happy we can read your blog again! Thanks for the new background. I would love to see "Cubing a Watermelon".

heidi said...

Hi!! I'm still here!! I love your blog! I'll read it until the day I go to Mother Russia! I promise!!

i choose watermelon!

ern said...

glad to see you're still blogging! this probably means i need to change your web address on my blogroll...

jani vegas said...

Hi Tiff,

It's Janivegas. I vote for a video and I would like a grab bag please. I'll pick it up when we come to visit in THREE WEEKS!!!

MrsEm said...

Woah, might be scraping in right at the deadline here. Sorry! I vote for the watermelon video.

alison said...

Aloha! It's me, live from Maui.
I hope I win the drawing since I will be in depression tomorrow when I have to leave this beautiful place.

cutie crowley said...

I know I am too late because I am behind on blogging!! Home your move was fabulous!! ;)

DeAnn said...

You did say Sunday at midnight -- right?
Last night I dreamed that I couldn't find a place to pee in private -- so I think a good urine story is in order.

Omgirl said...

I'm late, but I'm here. Just want you to know that I am SO glad you moved! Cause I loved you enough to wait 10 minutes for your old blog to load, or even enough to read the blue writing version of it when it wouldn't load, and I even patiently clicked back and forth from the top and bottom of your posts in order to comment. But this will make it so much easier for me to dote on you. Welcome to the bloggerhood!!
