Bliggity, Bloggity, Bloooooo......

"Blog" did you know the word was shortened from Weblog...which is pronounced we-blog...not web-blog? I didn't. Still doesn't explain the word blog itself. Whatever, just another trivial bit of information I felt compelled to share ;0)

I've read several Posts of late, where questions were asked about how you answer comments, how you feel about site counters, has it ever been a source of negativity in your personal life, why you blog, for yourself, for your family, to bitch, to share etc. So I thought I would share my thoughts on this subject here. So all of you could "get me" without having to wonder.

Don't you hate not knowing something? Wouldn't you rather have it out in the open so you can deal with it? Oooops..tangent sorry..but this does apply to blogging too.

I am a nice person. And apparently some of you like me because I keep getting these cool things called comments. How to return the favor? Go back and visit...or answer in the comment section or email? I think I like email and return visits best. I'm still playing around with the email thing so if I don't answer you every time, please don't be offended. It's a lot of work don't you think? And if I don't come by everyday or my visits seem sporadic, it's not because I don't want to, it's because I read all of those loverlys on my Blogroll everyday. Or at least try to...lately it's been a game of catch up. And I DO read everything from the days I've missed..

I lurk at some but not usually for long because I can't not comment! I find what I like to read through your blogrolls generally. We all seem to like the same things. Once in a while I'll happen upon something through another means. The Blogette Awards is a good example. 63 Days was getting a lot of votes and so I popped in to see what all of the hub-bub was about. Now I know why. It was compelling, and sad, and funny all at the same time.

I read each of you for a different reason. And my newest addition found me a couple of days ago. Elle at True Blue came to me because of comments I was leaving around the blogosphere. How cool is that? I personally think that is one of the biggest compliments you can receive in this here world of Virtuality.

I think we need to remember that these are relationships we are developing here, however, surreal, with very real people on the other end. I am a talkative type person. I don't hold much in and I don't hold grudges. I don't always think before I speak and this blogging thing really helps me sort out my thoughts and feelings. They are real. I am not unkind and do not expect you to be either. My bloggie buddy Bari has had her share of nastiness from the real leaking into the surreal and it's kept her from being herself. Some of it had leaked into this space, anonymously of course...I have been accused of being a "Know It All" and a "Copy Cat" both of which are unfounded . At least in my opinion. Because I don't know it all, which is why I ask for your help and whatever I have "copied" I've asked permission and given credit to. I don't have time to lend credence to such crap because there are too many other great people out there who deserve my attention.

So, other than that what's not to like ;0) LOL!

Seriously though, I welcome criticism, but be kind. After all, what would the world be like if we all thought the same way? I don't get on my soapbox much...but when I out! Especially when it comes to kids. If I know about anything it's kids, how to teach them, how to reach them. I am a true Libra and on the libral side of conservatism or on the conservative side of liberalism..however you choose to look at it ;) I like living in my bubble where everyone is nice and considerate until it's time not to be. Roadhouse anyone?

If you ever want to know anything about me..shoot me an email..I'll be happy to share, except maybe the personal details about my family..with respect to my husband. He's worried about stalkers and psychos and unfortunately in this world today that's a very real concern.

I will never share info you give me with anyone else without your permission. It's none of my business and no one else's either.

So now that we've got that all cleared up... How the heck do you put those little picture links in your side bar? I have one from the Complimenting Complimenter, Muzik Dude and Mr. Mogul and no idea how to get them there???!!!

Does anyone know how to post wave files? Help!!

Thanks again for all of your help and I have designated tomorrow and Saturday "Compliment Your Blogroll Day" Copy your blogroll into a post and write one or two nice things about each blog and/or person who writes it. Challenging? You bet! Think about Michele ;0)

Happy Thursday Folkies!!
