As a reminder, I recently added the Google Friend Connect gadget to my sidebar for those interested in joining the site. You just have to scroll down the page a little to see it. Additionally, I just published a Contact Me page to the tabs below my blog header where you can either email me or follow me on Facebook, PInterest, and/or Instagram! Happy Navigating!

Web hosting + blog registration = confusion
I have a question today. Does anyone out there use web hosting for their website? Also, do you register your blog? I’ve been doing research on these two topics and I’m still not understanding them completely. Apparently a web host makes your website accessible on the world wide web. This is strange. The minute I created a domain name, I was accessible to everyone on the internet. I’m not sure I get it. Among providing accessibility though, hosting sites will provide you with various amounts of disk space to back up your content to. Some hosting sites also provide security monitoring and advertising credits (which I’m still not quite sure what that is). I don’t know about you but the back up services alone are enough reason for me to purchase services. Does anyone know if Blogger does this already? Back up your content?
And why would you register your blog? Is it for the sole purpose of marketing yourself or does it have other benefits as well? God I’m confused! It seems like registering your blog allows people to find your website on search engines more easily. I could be misunderstanding though. Not sure. I welcome clarification! Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? (Sorry had to throw that in there). If you haven’t seen Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, you are missing out!
Anyhow, hope that made you smile on a Monday! Now onto my pictures. I’m linking this first shot up to the following photo challenges. I love when Alivia sleeps! It’s about the only time that picture taking is easy for me. Besides, I just love the peacefulness it exudes. You got to love the opened mouth too! How freakin’ cute right? As my mother would say “you catching flies”?
My mom just got a new plant for the front of her house. I just love yellow!
And if you look closely you can see that one bead of water on the left hand side!
