[Locate the button that advertises or states what the linkup post is about - for instance, today I am participating in Friday Confessional. You can find the button for this post below this note. The person hosting the linkup will usually have a box with the button code underneath it. Simply copy the code in the box and paste it into your post. Sometimes there is no code and you need to save the picture to your computer instead. Simply save the picture and insert it into your blog post. If this is the case, the host will usually have their blog address on the button.]
[Sometimes the host explains what the linkup topic is and sometimes it is implied. Friday Confessional is your opportunity to confess what ever your little heart desires.]
I confess... that there is a child who attends the daycare who stinks to high heaven and I use hand sanitizer religiously when she is near me. I feel like a scumbag doing it but I'd rather feel like a scumbag than get some kind of sick from her germs.
I confess... that I hate watching the news. Our front lobby (which is where I work the majority of the time) shows the news on TV all day. The station they watch plays the same clips over and over and over again. I cannot tell you how tired I am of hearing about the Royal Wedding, the destructive tornadoes, and Osama Bin Laden.
I confess... that I cannot bring myself to celebrate the death of another person. Granted, I know that Bin Laden killed thousands of people and actively planned other acts of terrorism. But-- celebrating his death still seems wrong to me. I strongly believe that God gave life to everyone for a reason and it is not anyone's decision but His to end it.
I confess... that despite being American, I celebrated Cinco de Mayo last night like one of their own. I am now hating life and struggling to get through this work day on 2 hours of sleep. Yes, two. Luckily, my boss went out last night too and is struggling just as bad as I am.
[Once you are finished with your post, publish and copy the post link. Go back to the blog that is hosting the linkup and they will have some sort of linkup widget that you simply fill out. It is pretty explanatory and usually asks for your post link, blog name, and sometimes your picture. Enter your info into the form and viola! You have added yourself to their linkup. Now, others that participate can click on your link and view what you had to confess--or what ever the post topic may be.]
