WWTK – Blogging edition


 

Hosted by Mamarazzi and Crazymamanull{1} Please describe your blog. Does it fall into one category or many? How has it changed from post one?

I guess it’s sort of a mish-mash of everything; I talk about my life, my kids, work, etc. You can check out day one and it’s kind of funny how it explains why I started a blog and sums up this place in general still.

{2} What 3 things do you LOVE about blogging?

I really love a.) being able to express my thoughts somewhere and b.) when people actually comment and say, ‘hey, I know what you MEAN by that!’ So then c.) I love meeting all the people in the blogosphere. It’s like making friends in real life, only easier for introverts like myself.

{3} What 3 things do you DISLIKE about blogging?

I really dislike how a.) some people use anonymity to be mean and spiteful towards others. It’s just unnecessary and it’s also cowardly. b.) I dislike when blogs try to be a writing blog but have ads and try to sell too many products. I am OK with some plugging because I know we gotta make money but it’s when they are sneaky about it. And c.) I dislike the feeling of guilt if I don’t blog. It’s self-imposed – I know – but it’s part of the whole thing.

{4} What 3 things do you WISH OTHER BLOGGERS would do? Any tips for them?

I guess I a.) wish people always commented back. I know we can’t always do that; hell, I don’t always have time either, but it would be nice. b.) I wish people would not have autoplay music and c.) If you open yourself up with some kind of touchy subject, be ready for people to fight you. It’s just the way people are.

{5} I know we all have lots of blogs we read, but what are 3 blogs your never miss?

  1. Just checked out Sundry Mourning, and read the Avengers Dateability post– gotta say, I agree. Bruce Banner all the way!

  2. I’m so with you on the commenting back think. I know we are all super busy but hey just send a quick reply as you are reading your comments.
    I’m going to be checking out a couple of your favourite blogs, thanks for sharing the links

  3. The automusic thing–so startling and not so cool if you are taking a break at work and sneaking in a quick blog jog.
    I too feel I can’t totally call myself a mom blogger, my blog is about me with family, friends, my thoughts, and stuff. Not just mommy related.

  4. I also feel guilty if I miss out a day or two of blogging…I have no idea why, but I get stressed out over it. So weird.

  5. Yes, if someone reads my blog and comments I always try and return the favor- it might take a couple of days depending on life, but I’d they took the time why can’t I?

  6. oh, yes, the automatic music drives me nuts! i usually turn the speaker off on my computer when surfing as soooo many people do it! great answers!

  7. not a fan of people picking fights on blogs. but you are right, be prepared for it..it happens, sadly.

    thanks for linking up!!

  8. i’m totally with you on mean anonymous comments. i’ve had my share and they are usually made by someone who has no idea who i am or what kind of person i am. it’s lame.

    commenting and visiting more would be awesome. i wish i had time like i used to.

    i used to have self induced guilt over posting. my readers needed something to read, they treated it like their daily paper, etc. i got over it. i have no idea who reads, no one comments and i only post for myself these days. i love the archives.

    thanks for linking up, you had some great answers!

  9. Like your answers…direct and true. I wish I could comment more..I seriously would comment to everyone I followed if I could or had the time..one day when I’m old and my kids are out of the house I will be a creepy blog stalker

  10. Uggghhh I have that self-imposed guilt too. It is just so hard to keep up sometimes. If I don’t have enough time to post or enough time to blog hop I at the very least try to respond to comments.
