Everyone said yes to my linking! Thank-you!
Consensus was that you don't need to ask to link, only if you want to use a picture. I also learned it is a little rude to link to a blog if your blog is by invitation only and the person you linked to is not invited to join.
So the best thing that came out of asking to link is that everyone e-mailed me back. It was like having a movie star e-mail me!! They called me by name, and then wrote something to me!!!
I don't really get into actor attraction, in fact I can barely remember their names and if I do remember their names, I have no idea what their faces look like. So feeling all a flutter about these internet gals is a little strange for me, but so exciting! It's kind of like moving to a new school and coming home and telling your mom you think you made friends. Very exciting!!
