To All the 'Lurkers' in the Blogosphere (and my friends too!)

I love me some comments!! I just wanted to let everyone know that.

I recently posted a comment on a blog where my opinion was different than that of the author and was all but stoned for it.

I love hearing different opinions about what I write (whether I know you or not). If you think I'm funny....let me know! If you think I'm boring.....let me know!! If you have had something similar happen or read something that you think is totally wack....let me know!! If you think I am the world's best mother and that I deserve a big trophy...well, then you probably haven't actually READ any of my posts. So, go ahead and read away and then...leave me a comment!!

All I ask is that you keep in mind that this blog is rated PG, so please KEEP IT CLEAN!!

i love comments too...and usually I like hearing the opinion of others unless it is a direct bash to me...does that make sense?

I am a person that sees both sides of the coin, I guess, just don't attack me.

Anyway. I love your blog, I think you are HILARIOUS and I would love to hear your opinions ;)

man you really ruffled that gals feathers... i hope yall make up soon! i know ive gotten involved in a couple comment wars over politics lately b/c of my recent liberal stint... hee hee!!!

anyway...you always get WAAAY more comments than any other blog i see (except for the ones that get paid and all but they also pay for publicity i think) so you're doing great...

this blog is very entertaining...me and drew laugh and laugh! my fave post lately-ish is still the vulture one!!! that one cracked me up BIG TIME!

See you tomorrow!!! Woo! Woo!

Amen! I couldn't agree more. I think the comments are what gives me the motivation too keep it up- because I know others are looking. I am doing it for me and my family and to record things, but the comments from others is what keeps me motivated. It seems a bit odd, but then, I suspect, all of us bloggers feel that way. I agree with you and the above commenter- I don't mind when people disagree as long as they don't get nasty! :)

Sorry about being stoned for your comment -- I wish I had read it:) I probably agreed with you.

I love your blog -- you were my first comment on my first blog post!! For that I will always be a supporter and a commenter :)

Sugar Mommy- You aren't talking to yourself....I'm always listening! :)
Christine- Well, I am glad to have you here. I totally didn't know (or at least I totally forgot) that I was the first comment on your blog. I feel so special. :) I love reading your blog, too.

Your blog is hysterical and an inspiration for me to keep trying to make mine more interesting. Thanks for continuing to share your thoughts and your family with the rest of us.

Porters said...

Well Miss Valerie I love reading your blog. I know I can alway get a good laugh when I read your blog. I don't know if I told you before but you should be a writer, you have such an amazing way of telling your stories that you make me just want to keep reading more.

Betsy said...

You are an awesome commenter! I love reading your blog, and I really do try and comment. And I don't know whats not to like about being stoned for your opinions! lol. JUST KIDDING, you didn't give me a whole lot to disagree with. :)

Dawn said...

I rarely venture into controversial material on my blog with what I post, but the few times that I have, I've expected, and welcomed different opinions- as long as they're said in a respectful manner. From what I've learned about you, you're always respectful and kind, so that's too bad that you were stoned for voicing a different opinion.

I think you're freakin' hilarious -- you say the things we all think!

Kathy said...

I love comments too, but I don't blog enough to really receive any! Hope this helps. I don't go off on people for opinions, we all have one...

Kaci said...

Oh man really??? People are so dumb sometimes...everyone needs to keep an open mind!! UGH! If we were all the same what a sad and boring world we would live in! I say Valerie...GET YOUR COMMENT ON SISTER!

Oh and I got a few comments on Friday about turkey eating, I'm a veg head, it stung a lil but whateva...I'm me and will always be me.

I enjoyed lurking on your blog today!

I think you are.... Busy! 4 kiddos in a row! I have 4, but I took a break in the middle so its more like 2 and 2, which doesn't seem like 4.

None of mine have ever stuck beans up their noses. Yet. Just m&ms, fingers, and a hello kitty charm.

That's pretty funny you got in trouble. You know I just think sometimes these blogs are so personal to people and they take it a little too personal if you know what I mean.
