Some of you may be wondering why I link to so many blog articles and videos...It's because I've been blogging about cakes and cake business for the last 5 years or so, and my youtube channel is full of random stuff that I work on here and there. So it basically comes down to me being lazy and not wanting to rewrite something ninety times. It's easier to just link to things since the same questions come up a lot. One particularly rude person made a nasty comment about me linking so much, but she just likes to write long posts to yell at people and she doesn't write a blog to reference herself, so she can go pound sand.stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye.png

And no, the rude person isn't on here anymore as far as I know, so don't worry about it.

I personally love the links to outside resources. Writing a response off the top of my head, I may leave out something, but if someone has blogged about a topic, they thought about all aspects of the topic and took their time writing the article (or at least I do) so you get a more comprehensive response. Plus, it offers an additional source of information I may not have been aware of before - some of my favorite blogs I found only because someone linked to them.

Keep on linking no complaints here!! It's kind of you (and everyone else) to take the time to respond at all. Any source of information is welcome in my book!!

I have found your links useful. It is people's choice whether to look at them or not.

Personally, I think CostumeCzar is a GOD. 

Gods are allowed to link as they please.

i think your blogging and videos are great -- has become quite a body of work -- linking us to it is only natural and appreciated --

and I would hope all the untoward ghosts of cake central past stay far away from our minds and from here -- answering detractors give them too much credence/attention/importance --

your magnum opus is quite impressive -- i expect to hear about your next book deal any day now

best to you as always

I'm not God, make no mistake. And today I'm not even in a pleasant mood because my cat fell down the stairs yesterday and has screwed up my schedule since he can't use his back leg and I have to be his nursemaid. I got about two hours of sleep last night because I had to close him in my room so that he wouldn't try to go downstairs again like the dummy he is, and he spent all night sliding around and waking me up. My husband is out of town and i was looking forward to a good night's sleep with no snoring and I get a gimpy cat instead worried.png

I need to make him one of those little carts with wheels for the back legs.

Whew - I thought Costumeczar was talking about me, but I guess not. I'm almost disappointed. I'm going to start writing really long posts and yelling at everyone.

Jedi knight, never you, oh no. If you start yelling at people and posting long posts I'd think you had lost your mind or something. Short and sweet.

Jedi, I love your snappy little one liners.  They're always appropriate to the thread :)

Love the links too.  I'm a total tutorial, video, blog junkie....seriously...it's sad...can't get enough of em.

In the other cat thread there was a science lesson about how being a cat lady is the result of a parasite and now I learn here a cat can fall down the the stairs?!!!  How does that happen?  Poor kitty and poor kitty mama.  Hope you both feel better soon!

This cat can fall down the stairs because he's an idiot. But he's smart enough to make me his servant, so whatever...

so just for the record , the cat record -- had to take Rocco back to the vet for another roto rooting -- this has been our norm with him for years -- don't know where you are at in the process -- like I said he's on two prescribed meds plus several special diet foods and we added a new one which will replace some of the others -- it's Great! -- and wanted you to know --

you may already have your cat on it -- but it's called 'royal canin' brand 'gastrointestinal' -- probably has to be prescribed -- don't know for sure but there's a remarkable difference with this kibble -- we soften it with a bit of water and we get it from the vet -- really happy to find something so helpful in lieu of surgery

so I hope 'gimpy' is doing 'loads' better -- was thinking about him

I really appreciate your comments and links. I love how a costumer, Jedi and others are honest but not rude.  It can be a pain in the butt when a pet  is not completely mobile because they don't know to take it easy which makes extra work for us humans
