Bear with me ......

but I feel like whining for a few minutes.

Am I the only one who gets frustrated by bloggers who don't "maintain" their blogs?

What I mean is; it seems like a lot of people on here (people with a lot to say) go mute on a topic once they've posted it.

I realize that blogging is essentially an ego-based behavior, but WTF?

There are people on here who post every day. Sometimes several times a day, who seem to NEVER go back to anything they've written. You can check back every day to see if there's a response to your comment and find ZERO follow-ip posts from the blogger in question. Then, 2 weeks later, they'll mention what you said while they respond to a post of yours.

Maybe I got spoiled when I first came to blogville.

Very quickly I hooked-up with the likes of [blog Mizzkitka] and caressmewell. 2 very prolific bloggers who are also experts at communication and maintaining contact.

Perhaps they set the bar too high for many others to reach it.

And I don't want to hear any bullshit about being too busy. I'm busy, too. So is every other adult in America today. And if you have the time to rant, or celebrate or complain about something that happened to you today, you certainly have the time to read what I wrote on your blog and have the common decency to reply!

The way I fee about it is this: if you weren't craving SOME amount of interaction with other people, you would be satisfied with a simple paper diary or journal. The fact that we are blogging PROVES that we value interaction and communication with other people.

If you're on here and claim any different, you're only fooling yourself. The rest of us know the truth.

true... sometimes less IS more.

Call it my ceaseless pursuit of the soptlight. I just like to be noticed. Usually online it's because I'm an argumentative blowhard.

I've tried to tone that down on here, though.

Off to visit loosetooth.

Oops, sorry I'm late to the party..

I try to keep my blog updated. With comments running late these days I have been waiting in some cases 2 days before leaving responses. I also try to read as many blogs as I can and to visit the blogs of those that left commments for me so I have to balance my time between each.

Thank you for recognizing me in your post..once this friendly site is running faster I will try to get responses updated faster.

You are NEVER on my s-list! With the traffic on your blog, I'm surprised you have enough time to do anything but read the responses!
