Sunday Stealing: Our Third Meme About Blogging

Cheers to all us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: Our Third Meme About Blogging

1. How did you come up with your blog title OR what does it mean?
Because of Demon #1 & #2, I live in a padded room world and most days I need a straitjacket... it's the world called parenting.
2. What are your general goals for blogging?
We are supposed to have goals in all of this?
3. Do people “in your real life” know that you blog and do they comment on your blog OR is it largely anonymous?
I have a few IRL people that read. And most of the people that have commented, I've become "online friends" with through blogging. But, then of course, there are those few people who think they read anonymously, but I know they are watching.
How often do you post (x per week)?
Depends on my mood, if I have something to blog about and/or if the memes are interesting. 3-5 times I suppose.
4. How often do you read other blogs (x per week)?
I try to read them everyday... or as often as they post.
5. How do you select blogs to read (do you prefer blogs that focus on certain topics or do you choose by tone or…?)
if they keep my attention. Simple as that. I tend to be turned off real quick of the ones who are constantly running contests. I don't get that.
6. Do you have any plans to copy your blog entries in any other format, 0r do you think that one day, you’ll just delete it all?
I'll just one day decide thats enough, and poof, I'll disappear and take the posts with me.
7. What are the things you like best about blogging?
the people I meet through it.
8. What are the things you don’t like about blogging?
People who visit religiously but don't leave comments. How hard is it to leave a comment? I love memes, but I have issues with those who just do the meme, leave their link on the meme site and then don't go visit other blogs.
9. How do you handle comments?
Handle them? I read them... sometimes respond if it's worth responding to.
10. Do you have any burning thoughts to share on blog etiquette?
I guess it goes back to the meme commenting. Take the time to comment.
And take the fricken music off your blog. First of all... it slows the page down. Second of all - how do you know I'll even like the song? Thats as bad as people who use those answering tones... you never hear the song anyway, only your callers do and newsflash for you - not everyone likes your kind of music.
11. Any desired blog features?
To blog for me when I have nothing interesting to blog about.
12. Have you suffered blog addiction?
when I first read this I thought it said "accident". Silly me. No, I have no addiction. Yet.

I'm commenting, my music player requires that you click on it and I try to throw in something other than a meme once in awhile! See, some people listen to you! *wink*

Have a great Sunday Berleen!

LMAO @ #10.

NurseExec said...

I can't stand blog music as well. Ick.

Melissa said...

I read and comment although not all the time. I don't like the blog music either. It definitely slows down the page load.

Jodi said...

Totally agree about the memes.

His d said...

i am another who agrees with the autoplay music being irritating.

Each time i do a meme, i usually read at least 3 bloggers who've done the same meme and leave a comment. i try to pick different blogs each time so that i will eventually get around to visiting everyone who does that meme.

Rae said...

Love your #10, I hate hearing someone elses music picks! Good answers.

It's very hard to leave comments, see how hard it is! LOL
