My Current Comment Cycle

Our Thank You Card

Well, I have pretty much shot myself in the foot since I just found out tonight that Carrie is having a girlie pookie. But, please let me explain myself.

I decided a bit back that I would stop checking blogs everyday. Because I am lame. Because when I would check in, and there wasn't a post, I would be disappointed. I'm serious. It's like I was all bent out of joint when someone would take a blogging break and then I'd get all concerned and worried and work myself into a tizzy. Yep, over a little tiny missed blog post. And who am I kidding? I hardly ever post anything of substance daily. Talk about holding others to a higher standard.

So, as a feat of self preservation, I decided to only check and comment on my blog gals once or twice a week. And, I'm tellin' ya, it has been HEAVEN. Sometimes there are multiple posts to read and comment on. I adore catching up and commenting after the fact. Almost like an unexpected present, just waiting for me to unwrap it.

So, I am commenting. and reading. I just might be a few days late.

And to the rest of you, if a known happiness blogger announces something huge, like the discovery of Carrie Jr. PLEASE email me. I know that you have more to do in your lives than to take care of me, but hey, give a sister a heads up, won't ya? Something along the lines of, "OMG check Carrie's blog!" And I'll be there faster than fast.

You are so cute!

I'll keep this in mind if you haven't posted in a few days. If I miss you, I may "cry wolf."

"KARIANNE, have you read my blog lately!!! OMG!!!"

Love you!!!!

Melissa said... I secretly wonder if people think my posts are dorky or offensive(?) if they dont' get comments on them fairly quickly after posting. I'm glad to know you don't think I'm a dork----or maybe you do and this is just a cover-up so I DON'T think you think I'm a dork. :)

I love it when you comment, so it'll be worth the wait.

That's so cute. I'm the same way. But I still check every day, and am sad when people don't post.

Love you, even if you do discriminate do to my Husky status. :)

Too funny...I know what you mean though...I started feeling like a stalker so I backed off a little too : )

Christy said...

Im so with you on that one. I decided not to do the daily reads much because I get disappointed but also that I dont have time. I already have too little time with the kids and I already spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THE COMPUTER so soemthing had to give. I try to post ot my blog everyother day but I cant comment on peoples blogs everday. It is just too much!! Glad I am not alone!

Christy :)

I am with you there, K. Sometimes I check a blog two or three times in one day and then I think "Wow, this person must think I'm a nut!" Because they probably have a stat tracker and are wondering why I've visited so many times...

Glad to know you're still out there!

Honestly, that is exactly the same comment routine I am on. About twice every week I go through my list of blogging friends and go down the line. I love going, catching up, and most of the time there is always new material to read. It kind of feelings like a guilty pleasure, but there's nothing to be guilty about. haha

Don't worry, no new gender annoucements will be happening on my blog anytime soon, and if there are, I'm locking myself up. I want this GIRL! hehehehe


And I love, love, love the Christmas picture! Your kids always make me just wanna kiss their little faces. But I can tell they're like my kiddos, and probably wouldn't stop long enough for me to do so. :)

LOL - I can't help myself, I still check blogs daily.
