Funny things I <3 - Scrolling Sunday (just for today)

Secret Agent Mama - posted this yesterday - Scrolling Saturday (sorry I am a bit late)
Melissa at Such Simple Pleasures and Coleen at Manners and Moxie have introduced a new “meme“. Basically, you just go back in your archives, dig up an old blog post, repost it, and let it get some new love! Hope you enjoy this flash back in time.
So , maybe I have a lot of few posts that I can repost or then again maybe I just tell you about them or link them or maybe not. I iz lazy and time poor sometimes.

Yes, I should be doing something else but have you seen thiz site.

I wrote a post on it here but no-one commented - is it just me that wants at least ten one person to comment. Someone wish I could remember to thank them wrote a great piece about whether we blog for ourselves or so that others will read & comment. I sit on the fence. I journal about things that interest me , my twin things and my precious boys. I have a lot of stuff I want to blog about but haven't - slowly I am coming out of my deep dark shell to reveal my innermost thoughts and anxieties.

I don't have a potty mouth (LOL - here at least but don't ask my teen *eek* or the neighbours double *eek*) , I don't blog too much about my ever so perfect husband (no - you can't meet him and no you can't have his email address .I haven't shown him how to use the computer on purpose) and save for happy snaps of my little boys my photography talents are hit and miss - lucky and just as well they do lots of cute things for me to blog cause I wouldn't be doing Blog 365.

I crave comments like I crave chocolate LOL. I try to make genuine comments on lots of blogs but sometimes I feel very discouraged that they don't return to visit me - even some I know are only small blogs. I am getting paranoid that maybe no-one is really interested and my comments aren't worth it either. I see who visits me sometimes in my widgets but many don't comment. I am thankful they care to visit at all - so please drop in again. I am baking a Banana Walnut Caramel cake tomorrow

Well on to brighter and funnier than I stuff ...

'Crikey' - in the immortal words of Steve Irwin it is funny and Google page rank is 7 /10 so obviously a few people <3.
Lolinate you blog here - mine won't work at the moment *sigh* it was funny b4.

Hi Trish,
Scrolling Sunday sounds like a fun thing--I've never seen it before.
I haven't signed up for Weekly Winners because I don't want to give my readers the idea that I consider myself a photographer! :P Is that kinda silly?
Hope you're having a good day!

I try to blog with the intent that no one will comment, that way I don't work myself up about it, ya know.

I also try to return comments, when I do get them, and have been thinking about doing other things (like commenting to the comment at my blog) because on most days, I just don't have time to go around commenting like a busy blog bee. I'd love to sit and read and comment all day, though. LOL

XOOOXOX I lurves ya blog, Trish!!

CelloBella said...

Oh I so know that place Trish. I'm the same. I just love it when someone comments. Pathetically so.

Visit their site, add to my reader list etc.

But you can't write for comments.

Or at least, I can't.

I think there's a danger you'll lose your authentic voice but also if you write for comments, and you still don't get any... what then?

So I just muddle along and focus on why I started blogging in the first place.

Which was...???!

I can relate to the disheartening comment syndrome. For me it's traffic. Some day it's great, and then others it will cut in half....and I have no idea why :(

LOVE those cat pics..that site is hilarious :)

Kellan said...

Hi Trish - I'm always so glad when you come by my site. I love coming over here and seeing what is going on with you and those sweet babies!!

I have never actually visited this funny site until now (it is hysterical), but I love those cat pictures and have used one or two on my posts from time to time.

Comments don't, in anyway, validate how good a site you have, how good a writer you are, how great a person you are! I get a lot of comments and still question all of these things. When you get comments you wonder why and when you don't you wonder why. It is impossible to know - either way. Just keep doing what you are doing and try to attract readers that you have things in common with (like twins). I think bloggers want to feel connected.

Take care and have a good Sunday - I'll see you soon. Kellan

Hey thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment-I too crave comments like chocolate and coffee! Your twins are adorable. I am glad to have my first Australian friend! And I am not really competition, just a fellow blog sister.

Laura said...

Great posters of the cats! Those are funny! I love reading about your kids...nice to know there are others out there going crazy like me!!

Thanks for the funny lolcats.

Veronica said...

I love icanhascheezburger. I always nip over there for a giggle on a bad day.

I know how you feel about comments. Comments are like blogger crack, the more you get, the more you want.

Thanks so much for the tip! I was wondering what the heck one had to do to get referrals! It took me awhile, but I figured it out!

Jayne said...

Love the cats LOL.
And I enjoy reading your posts :)

Louise said...

I really enjoy genuine comments and try and answer them, to me blogging is like a conversation so it's nice to 'talk' to people from all over the world via comments.

I enjoy your posts and the photos are always gauranteed to make me smile :)

Veronica said...

There is something on my blog for you!

Cathy said...

lol at blogger crack!

I too love comments - making them and receiving them! I thank you for all your comments on my blog too :)

I think we write for ourselves, but we are also doing it to share our thoughts and feelings - if we didn't want to share, we would have a paper and pen diary in a drawer at home... so yeah, I get where you're coming from. Feedback/comments are nice :)

Glad to see you got a huge (by our standards) response to this post!

tiff said...

We all love you Trish!
I love getting comments too and also feel disheartened sometimes when there are none or only a few.
When it gets down to it though, is it really about the comments? Remember when we started our blogs? We didn't know about blog communities at all. Oh how things have changed!

Still love every single word you write! MWA
