Google Hearts Us, They Really Do!

You had us at "hello," Google.  You had us at "hello…"

It turns out that we’re among Google Engineer’s favorite blogs.  Googlite Mike Knapp even made a button for us so you can quickly add Cute Overload to your Google Reader list.

Of course, by reading Cute Overload via a RSS reader you’re quite literally taking food (ad revenue) out of our mouths, but we’re reeeaaallly lazy too, so we can’t blame you.

We heart you too, Google.  In fact, we use Google Apps to run the place.  Well, only Mail, but that’s another conversation…
