House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

Blogging Tip- You Can't Always Count On Spellcheck!

HouseTalkN is almost 3 months old and I thought this might be a good time to share a blog "tip" of my own.  That's what all the big girl bloggers do.
Amanda at Serenity Now, A Mommy's Solution To Staying Sane and Sarah at A Beach Cottage were two of the many generous bloggers that shared their "How Be A Better Blogger" tips.  (Sarah is about to begin an online "blogging" class, fyi)

Thanks to Amanda, I finally braved a "link party."
Amanda pointed out that like any polite party guest, you should always thank your hostess.
Similarly, when you "host" a visitor, always thank them for coming.

Much like when Sarah started "Fashion Friday" with all of her loveliness, I had to share my unfortunate "Mascara as eyebrow enhancer" fiasco tip. that Amanda has pointed out the "please and thank you's" of blogging,  I better share with you the importance of READING BEFORE SENDING!
Here is my disclaimer...My kiddos started school this week.  I started teaching.  Throw in a few baseball games, soccer practices, meetings and a bit of cooking, cleaning, laundering, and you know the drill because we are all doing it!  I know, I know.  I'm just trying to whine about explain why I was in such a rush.
I live for "comments" on HouseTalkN.  I am so happy to find out that someone out there is actually reading it!  (Besides my mother)  So, when I do get a comment, I am thrilled to go to that person's blog/site/email to thank them for popping by my place.
You got that?  POPPING.  Not to be confused with POOPING.
In my rush, I typed  "Thank you for pooping by my place."
