It happens to the best of us.

We see a post or a tweet. We overreact and we lay down the rhetorical boom.

Then you re-read the post and realize that you actually agreed with the gist of the post…you just disagreed on semantics.

And you feel like a grade A douchebag.

Thank You! Sunday Link-Fest

I was going to do a recap because I was happy that my blog had hit 1K views (I know it is the small things in life). But then I logged in after church and realized that I had hit over 1K views TODAY! I am glad that people have seen fit to link my post on WHAT REALLY MATTERS so as a thank you! I am going to do a link recap for the week on who linked me or at least try…I am still trying to get the hang of HOW to tell who is linking me…so, if I missed you…my sincere apologies and thank you for your link! Because of all of your kindness, I was ranked the #4 Growing Blog of the Day!

Alright…it seems that I have experienced a second-hand instalanche! Our good friends at The Camp of Saints got an Instalanche. And because I was the lead link in his great review…I got a secondary wave. So, I want to thank Camp of Saints for writing an awesome post and Glenn Reynolds for lanche’ing it as well…
