THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT


Okay I admit I am following allot of people. I just can't seem to help myself. I tell myself no more and then someone mentions someone they follow so I go over and check them out. See if I like the person I am following I should like the person they are following and so on and so on, right? So there I am pushing that follow button again. Yes, for the hundredth and something time! So I was doing some weeding yesterday but didn't accomplish much and there I was today adding three more blogs to follow.

So I can spend allot of time reading blogs each day and I am one of those people who comment on almost each and everyone I read. Sometimes the posts are way over my head with information so I tend to say nothing. Those people are way too smart for my little brain. So let me tell you that I have the gift of gab/type. My comments can be longer then the post. So I have been trying to keep them short but that isn't really happening too often. I keep reminding myself of http://http//www.threewordsblog.com/ a site you should check out. (okay I don't know how to do the other kind of link you all do) So you put all the blogs with all the comments into my day and believe me I am living in my office. God only know the things that a little almost six month old puppy can get into or do when she is over in the family room in her comfort zone! Well I could tell you but you really don't want to hear the story about the poop that was a toy. Yet I must say I do read allot of poop stories out their from all the moms!

So here was the original point to this post. I am sure that you read mistakes when you read me or when I am commenting on your page. I believe I am getting better at it because I have seen way to many misspelled words after I pushed that button to submit it. There really is no turning back after that. So I sit here in my office with two dictionaries next to me. I read, reread, reread again and again. (wouldn't it be nice if the comment sections had spell check?)

So there I am having to go through the magical words after each comment. (Okay it's not on every one but I seem to have to go through that test allot each day) I am calling them words even though that's not what they are. I often feel like I am on trial, someone is watching me when I type those crazy meaningless words. I get turned down sometimes and it would be nice to see my mistake but you can't because they give you another crazy word. There are times when I just can't make out a letter that blends into the next letter. So if you read and don't comment you are missing out on allot of fun. And I have to admit that some of them are starting to look like words to me. I am always saying them in my head trying to come up with some meaning. So what is it I did before I started blogging and taking these spelling tests each day?

And don't get me started on the "Your comment will be visible after approval." I do actually get the point to that because I know that people can get some nasty comments on their blog but there I am wondering and praying "Dear God I hope they accept me."

I do the same thing...end up adding more blogs to my list to read when I already have so little time to read them. Spell check is my BEST friend! I hate when I click on the "post comment" button only to reread my comment and realize I made a really stupid spelling error! Love that road sign at the top, too funny!

Been there, done that myself!!! I take away one and add back 3 more. oh well. I love reading blogs. :)

Brandy said...

I don't know if they ever turn me down because I just keep going and commenting. maybe i should check to see if i'm wasting my time?

Ashlee said...

I, for one, LOVE your comments, your blog, and your thoughts! Keep 'em all coming...typos and all. I'm definitely a queen of typos so I can't judge anyone. I decided to start approving comments b/c I got a hurtful one and didn't appreciate it. I'm a follower of many and I try to comment on everyone's b/c I love to send and receive comments.

Holly said...

I follow quite a few blogs!! And don't worry...I'll accept ya. ;)

Deciding how many blogs you can ACTUALLY follow is really difficult for ALL the reasons you mentioned.

I don't have an answer - - - I've been asking myself the SAME question.

I love reading and receiving comments from you! I feel like you are a close friend, just far away! Ya know how I cheat. I type in dictionary on my yahoo page, let it come up and then minimize it. Then when I am stumped on a word, I just click it on my toolbar, pull it up and spell the word (almost always if I have to check it, I HAVE IT WRONG). And spell check is my friend too. but sometimes my fingers get ahead of me, then I just think, hey,,,, human!!!

I put up the comment thing because of the issues I was having. I think right now I'm following almost 200 blogs and it takes a while to read all of them. But one thing I don't let it take away from my family life. I'm not a very good speller -- I hate spelling and grammar. Writing on your blog or commenting isn't for a grade so I wouldn't worry about it -- half the time I don't even notice someone spelled something wrong or forgot a period -- but their or some that love to catch the errors. LOL

I have a ton of blogs on my reader too and sometimes I just can't get to them all. But I try! I love ladybugs too! My kitchen is done in them. That is my mom's nickname for me. :)

Missy (Two Little Monkeys) said...

Your comments are always accepted at my blog! I love reading your blog and I am so glad you found my blog!

Missy said...

Was there life before blogging? I cannot remember such a time....

Cherie said...

I'm with ya! I love reading good blogs and I love commenting and I hate the word verification. The little handicapped guy on the word verification freaks me out - I mean what is that about anyway?? If you can't see you can press the handicapped guy - How do you see it?? Then it speaks to you and sounds really freaky and scary, especially at 1:00 in the morning.
Ha Ha
Um speaking of long comments!!
BTW thanks for visiting my blog!

Ginny Marie said...

I always wonder if my comments will be approved, too!

I used to do the must be accepted thing, then I moved on to just let it go because I don't have time!
