Random Tuesday - Rantish


may have PMS? I don't know. I don't feel ticked off about everything, just one thing. (Which reminds me, I need to refill my Xanax prescription...)


The impression that 1) I only visit Entrecard Blogs and 2) If I don't comment, I haven't been there.

First, if you don't have Entrecard, you don't know how often I stop by your blog, Max People.

I have several blogs in my sidebar and in my bookmarks that ARE NOT Entrecard users. I still stop by, sometimes I just have nothing to say.

Honestly, sometimes your chosen blog topics are not my cup of tea. I don't care about working out, or cooking gourmet meals, or homeschooling my child, or History. So I may speed-read through those type of posts to see if there's something that would interest me, but if it doesn't catch my eye, I move on for THAT DAY.

I don't even drop that much.

My Entrecard Drops

See? I'm not one of those users that is just trying to drop to get credits. I actually read the stuff that people write, unless it's history or economics or specific to your country.

Second, even if your article interested me, it doesn't mean that I'll comment. I read Cardiogirl's blog every day, but I don't comment every day. Sometimes I have nothing to say and I don't feel that it's good form to comment "Hi, I was here!" rather than giving an opinion or offering something substantive.

Now, if you want me to let you know that I've been to your blog every day, even if I don't have anything worthwhile to say, I hate it for you.

When I find a blog/person that I like, I do not abandon them. I used to read Blanca Debree every day, even though I don't think I ever commented, she just amused me. I think she's changed her address, because the blog I found was not the same that I used to visit.

I am, at heart, a lurker. How do you think I find all the posts for my High Five Fridays if I'm not going through hundreds of blogs a week? I read that stuff, you know.

I think I must have PMS. Because my flipping feelings were hurt when I read MAX's response to my comment the other day when he asked where I had been.

My Steampunk RingDude, you gave me a ring. We're, like, cyber engaged or some shit. (Kidding, don't show up at my house or anything...)

I just can't read those posts about history or science without my eyes crossing.

Oh, yeah!

There are other places I go online. I don't just read blogs. So I'm participating in forums, tweeting, writing e-mails, designing stuff on Paintshop Pro for people with cute babies, etc. I have a virtual life! Not to mention that I have to watch TV and movies so that I'll have something about which to blog. I occasionally vacuum or wash dishes (though Evan would disagree with that). I have a real life too. Kind of.
