SITS Blogathon

(To the tune of My Favorite Things, with apologies to the Von Trapps and Julie Andrews...)

Comments on blog posts
so cleverly written
Heartfelt and cheering
and thoughtfully given
Seeing my site meter soar
like a bird on the wing,
These are a few of my favorite things!

Finding new blogs created by wonderful women
Laughing and crying from what they have written
Women whose playlists can cause me to sing,
These are a few of my favorite things!

When there's housework,
Or my kid is whining,
Or when my hair's gone mad...
I simply escape to my computer and SITS
and then I don't feel so bad!

Givinya de Elba is an Aussie with zing!
Hot Tub Lizzy's campaign's quite a thing!
Eudea-Mamia is a new friend and Ronnica is too

If I ever need a laugh, I read HappyHourSue!

All of these bloggers have a Secret they share
(No, not a "secret" - that's a capital S up there)
The Secret? I'll tell you, so no need to fuss!
It's a fantabulous website made for comment junkies like us!

The Secret is in the Sauce brings us bloggers together
No matter how messy our homes are or how bad the weather
They feature great reads and great giveaways too
(I've even won twice, no, really, it's true!)

So if you are blogging and feel all alone
No need to burn through all your minutes on your cell phone
Just become a SITSta (guys are welcome too!)
And soon heaps of saucy comment love will head right to you!

Featured bloggers and saucy blogs galore!
Contests and giveaways, too.
If you're looking for great reads (or avoiding your chores)
then SITS is the site for you!

***
I love SITS! (And not just for the chance to win an autographed photo of George Clooney, either!) Once again, let me give a shout out to the creators of SITS, Heather and Tiffany - you guys ROCK!

Stopping by from SITS (sorry I'm late) to say hello...I followed your comments all day yesterday and you sure are good with the rhymes!! Great to "meet" you...

nikkicrumpet said...

Good Morning Heather:

ummmmmmm I'm sensing that either you are a big T-shirt fan...which I find a little odd...OR you have a teensy bit of an obsession with George Clooney? LOL your comment had me rolling!!!

Felicia Eis said...

Hope that you had a lovely SISTA day!! Please forgive the fact that I am only now just getting around :P

Smoochiefrog said...

Sorry I'm just now getting around.

Your post is great! In fact, so is your blog.

I'm sorry you didn't win George. Maybe he'll find your blog and send you the pic himself. :)

Givinya De Elba said...

That was great Heather! I'm glad you wrote it - my absurd piece of 'poetry' shouldn't have put you off!
