At our house, we’re fighting persistent colds, and I think these “new and improved” Puffs would be just the thing to cheer up my 9yo! Now that the season has officially turned, I need to put my talented photographer daughter to work on spring pictures for my header. Meanwhile, here is a round-up of the happenings at *Let’s play math!* blog this month…

## March Blog Changes

I have added the ~~Monday Math Madness contest~~ [now defunct] to **Blog Parties for Teachers** sidebar widget. Have you tried one of their puzzles, yet?

As is traditional for a math geek, I tend to be introverted and somewhat inept in social situations. Unfortunately, I am also rather inept in geeky technical situations, too. But this month, I have made a smidgen of progress on both fronts: ~~With the help of Mamado Inside (including comments), I learned to put social bookmarking buttons at the bottom of my blog posts.~~ [Switched to the built-in WordPress.com sharing options.]

## Adding to the Blogroll

I have been neglecting my blogroll. I guess I got worn out by January’s chore of transferring it to a separate page. This month I took some time to add quite a few new friends. If I am still missing your blog, feel free to send me an email.

I laughed at Sam Jackson’s tag line — it deserves to join this list of The Best Website Taglines Around the Internet — so I am considering adding tag lines to my blogroll. That sounds like an overwhelming task, but I think it would make the list more helpful to my readers. It would also give me an excuse to visit blogging friends that I have neglected in the urgent busy-ness of my daily school and house chores. For now, though, I will have to be satisfied with including each new blog’s tag line (or a snippet from the About page) on the list below.

Thanks for the link and mention – so envious of your gorgeous house…. someday I want to have that much room for my golden retriever ranch! ;^)

I am a blogger and writing about vedic maths.I really liked your blog .Is there anyway that I can join your blogroll?do suggest

Unfortunately, I haven’t updated my blogroll for years. I keep intending to do so, and someday I actually will. In the meantime, I suppose you could leave a comment on my Blogroll page, if you’d like.

BUT… There really isn’t much point in getting your blog on anyone’s blogroll, if the blog itself is marked private. First change your blog settings, then start promoting your blog.
