Tips to Prevent Getting an Infectious Disease While on Vacation

Dr. Brent W. Laartz thought he was in for the ride of his lifetime when he set out on a horseback riding excursion in Costa Rica.

Admittedly younger and more naïve than he is today, Laartz – an infectious disease specialist and author of the book How to Avoid Contagious Diseases…

Don't worry Dawn. Your blog looks great and I am glad to be following. I kind of felt like it was directed at me for some reason as much as it was you. People join this group on Mom Bloggers to "help each other reach 100 Followers", that is what it says in the description of the group. People should never feel obligated to follow anyone but the point of this particular group on Mom Bloggers IS to get followers. If some bloggers are not interested in getting followers or following others then no big deal, everyone is different but I don't really see the point in them belonging to this group then. Anyways, I have met tons of bloggers while in this group and found tons of blogs I otherwise would not have found and LOVE so it has been a wonderful experience meeting so many great people. Please don't let one person discourage you.

Dawn ~ I think your blog is great, don't let it upset you to much :0) I love your button also!
Comment by Dawn Allen on October 19, 2009 at 1:09pm
Thank you.
I didn't change anything...but I did go look myself too...just to make sure I didn't have something clicked wrong. Everything was fine.
That has been bugging me all day today. I felt kind of attacked. But I'm trying not to take it personally. Ya know? It's Ok...It's Ok.

So yeah...I am not going "Click Happy" with following people.
If I see a blog that looks interesting to me...I will follow it.
I like to read REAL LIFE blogs...not just Reviews, Give aways...and over my head under my feet kind of pish-posh.
I like to read about Real Moms...Real lives.
I love to look at pictures, and search for advice...find recipes and all that good stuff. Girly stuff.
Sure...I'd like to have numbers. Who doesn't.
I invite anyone to follow me. I'll check'em out and if the blog looks like it might be interesting I'll follow too. So I can go back to it later.
I have found that I could have dozens and dozens of Friends and or followers anywhere on the internet...but out of all those people I will find just a small handful of really good down to earth people I would love to get to know IRL.

Hey....I live in a unique situation.
I've always written my thoughts out.
I write better than I talk when it comes to feelings.
It first started as a journal when I was a Teen.
Then when I was Preg. with my youngest child I started to journal everything online on a web-page that I built. I didn't know I was blogging.
Then as years went on, I found Yahoo!360, and that's when I hit the floor running, with Blogging.
I found that I was not only Journaling, but sharing too. It was a great revelation.

I love Blogging. Love it-Love it-Love it!
It's what I do.

Very well said, Alaina! Yes, I'd like to reach 100 followers, but mainly, I really enjoy looking at everyones blog and following the ones that I truly enjoy. I would rather you follow me because you like what I have to say, that to just click follow! I have found some amazing bloggers through this group already, and I am halfway to my 100 followers mark, so I am sure that I'll come across many more, too! If you haven't checked out my blog yet, please so so:

Send me your link and I'll check yours out, too!

OK I just went and double checked your blog Dawn. Your "about Me" clearly states you are a wife and Mom and I re-read the post about your hubby just so I knew I wasn't crazy. I double checked your blogger profile as well and unless you changed it then it clearly states that you are female and live in Maine! By the way, love the new button. See you guys!
Comment by Alaina Forbes on October 19, 2009 at 11:31am
Yes, I always do read the blog before I follow because there are some I have chosen not to follow. And if you do read Dawn's blog it is obvious she is female regardless of whatever the profile might say. I am at 100 now so I will be moving on now- thank you everyone!!! I would say that it is not so much about getting to 100 but making connections with people here and finding blogs you truly do love to keep checking back in on. I am sure some people follow tons and tons of blogs but may only continually go back to a few. Like me, I may follow a LOT of blogs and then find about 10 or 15 I will check back in on a regular basis. But I found those 10 or 15 by doing this group, otherwise I would not have found them and hopefully some people have found mine the same way.

I'm not Canadian.

I'm from Maine. (close enough though right?)

I created a button today, and figured out how to do a grab box! Cool Beans!

My gosh...I'm surely not male.
LOL. I'll look at my profile thingy, and search around in my settings, cuz that's wrong.
Did you find that on my blog or on this MomBlogger website?

I would love new readers! Please visit my blog: Coolest Kid Reviews

Also, there are a few great giveaways with very few entries! Thanks!

Um, Dawn...according to your blog you are actually male....want to explain why you are on the mom bloggers club?

However, I may begin to read you since I always wonder about you Canadians to the North. Women are you just frantically clicking on blogs to get your followers up to 100? Alaina, did you actually read Mr. Dawn's blog, or just begin to follow? Did I type in something wrong.....????

Is getting 100 followers that important if everyone just clicks, but then doesn't actually read or really care or really follow? Even though I plan on continuing to follow the blogs that I've connected with through this group, I think I may need to bow out of continuing.

Anyone have thoughts on this?
