Want to sell me on your lifestyle? Don’t visit my blog.

If you’re reading this, then I hope you paid attention to the title, which means that it doesn’t apply to you. This post is written specifically for those of you who take some time out of your mostly free day to look for new bloggers, (bobbing for bloggers, I call it) – and proceed to inform us about your absolutely awesome lifestyle.

I realize that you are obligated to sign up as many people as you can, and that’s fine, but let me let you know from early o’clock that I’m not interested. I’m living in paradise now, by the way. Check out my About page. And work? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it.
