Another Linky and a Sale

First of all I can't believe how fast this week has hone.  Boy how the week flies by when I'm on summer vacation.  Only wish the work week would go as quickly.

Yesterday Jessica from Mrs. Standford's Class asked me to join her linky party.  This summer I'm trying to do more with my blog.  I like to join linky parties.  It's a great way to get to know other bloggers and what they do in their classrooms.  So are just so many great ideas out there.  If I only had the time to make or try all the ideas I have pinned on Pinterest.

So my Pet Peeves are not any different than the ones I already read about on this linky.

Of course the number 1 is the "You are not a Robot" comment when you post a comment on a blog.  Not only do you have to type in two words, but they make it so hard to read sometimes.  I know I'm getting older, but my eyesight is still good.  I feel like I'm at the eye doctor reading those things.
2.  Another thing about the posts is when you want to leave a comment on some blogs you have to scroll down the whole post plus all the comments.  I know I had mine like that, but I just changed it yesterday so that it is a pop up window.  No more scrolling through the whole post again and all the comments.  In the pop-up window you can still read through the comments if you like.  It just makes it easier.

3.  I wish when you reply to a comment it would post right under that comment.  Well I learned yesterday through another blog.  (Sorry can't remember which one that is right now.)  But you can change the format where you can do that, but then again I lost the abilty of having that pop-up window.  I guess I want the best of both worlds. 

So I hope this isn't anyones Pet Peeve but I'm going to celebrate having 500 followers.

Starting on Saturday June 16- Monday June 18 I will have a sale at both of my stores.  I have so many new followers in the past week that I thought I would have a sale.  My items might be new to them.  Hopefully today I will h ave some time to add some more of my items to my store.  All items will be 20% off.  So be sure to check out my stores on Saturday June 16- Monday June 18th. 

Don't forget about Mrs. Bainbridge's Birthday Giveaway.  More information on that on the post below.  My birthday celebration is coming soon.  So check back later for more information.

I have the same pet peeve about having to scroll the whole way through peoples posts so I thought I would try the pop up window rather embedded comments. I then realized when that happened I couldn't directly comment on people's posts. I was so upset that I couldn't have both so I chose and ended up sticking with embedded comments because I LOVE to reply to every person who leaves me a note. Its a bummer we can't have both :(

Congratulations on 500 followers!! I love your comment about the robot & feeling like you are at the eye doctor lol. Even the eye doctor's chart isn't as hard to read! :)

@Hedei I know I wish we could have the best of both worlds. I haven't decided if I wanted to stay with the pop-up window or go emebedded. I like to reply to comments also.

@ Lisa and Greg- I will have to check out both of your blogs.
Thanks for stopping by!

I wish too that we could have the best of both worlds. I love the reply button b/c I can reply to comments people leave but then I realize now people don't like scrolling through all the posts. Maybe someone will come up with a way to reply in a pop up window.

Thanks April for stopping by. I checked out your blog. I am now one of your followers. I really like your post on Making a Collection Tutorial. I will have to try that soon.
