I've never signed up to join a blogfest. Usually I've been a little intimidated by the number or frequency of posts required. But I saw a nice little one over at Lydia Kang's blog that I thought I could handle. One post and not even a new one at that. Oh yeah, that's my speed. So I decided to give it a try.
I entered my name and URL, clicked on Subscribe and, lo and behold, my name was added to the list. Then I was magically tranported to the Mister Linky site where I followed the steps to set up an account. So far so good.
Not quite sure what to do next, I went back to Lydia's blog and saw a link to Get the Code. Clicked there and found myself back at Mister Linky, who gave me the code but told me I needed to click on Subscribe to subscribe to that meme. There didn't seem to be any magic Subscribe buttons on that page so I went back to Lydia's blog and tried Subscribing again. Now my name is in the list twice. Back to Get the Code and Mr. Linky still says "you've selected a shared meme to which you are not currently subscribed."
I've left a comment on Lydia's blog apologizing for my woeful failure as a blogfester and asking for help, but since I've already revealed my ignorance I might as well ask here, too.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Groaner of the Day: Animal activist Bo Derek was horrified to learn that the Queen of England wears antique sable coats. She decided to confront the Queen over the issue, and arranged to get herself invited to an event which the Queen was also due to attend.
A month later, they were at a high class tea party. Rich people everywhere. Bo started looking around for the Queen. Sure enough, there she was, and wearing sable.
It was time for the confrontation! Bo marched up to the Queen, stated her cause, and demanded an answer.
Queen Elizabeth responded haughtily: "Some wear old fur to reign, Bo."
(Betcha had to say it out loud to get it.)
