1. Things bloggers write can be misinterpreted - if you want to misinterpret it. I never take things bloggers write personally. Geeez. What I mean is: It’s all about having fun, have a nice time. So I don’t take it so serious. It’s called socializing I think…. *lol*

2. I think your posts or your lists are great, no matter what they are about. It’s because that is what YOU want to say on YOUR blog and I have to accept and ponder over that. I’ve learned a lot that way.

3. I accept comments like “Nice list”… That tells me something too - either you couldn’t relate to the post I wrote - OR you’re just hunting for links to your own blog - OR you’re blogging with your left hand while you’re changing diapers on your baby ;-). Whatever the reason is, I don’t care. We have blog freedom. In my mind anyway.

4. Mind though, that if you only leave that kind of short comments here, I might feel less interested in making comments on your blog. I kinda like the two way real communication, not just a brief whispered hello :-)

5. I wonder about all the lurkers. We have sooo many visitors per day on this blog, but why don’t they comment? Let’s presume that a certain percentage of them just don’t get our humor or aren’t interested in the subject in the post, but the rest of them? Are they just like Peeping Tom’s? Like to watch, but not act? Or too shy? Why? It’s so fun, why not join the commenters group?

6. Actually, I soooo wonder what our readers and lurkers are thinking about us and our blog posts. Some of you tells us by your commenting, but others? I’m so curious! Are they thinking that we are totally insane, crazy Swedes, funny, strange or just (*whispering in fear*)…. simply boring?

7. I’ve become blog addicted. The blogosphere has some kind of social magnetism that is very difficult to resist. I guess humans are born to socialize in one way or another and the blogosphere is the next best. Reality is always #1, but can be much tougher to maintain under certain circumstances.

8. I’ve met so many new friends in the Blogosphere. Outstanding people. Creative. Caring. Witty. Real writers. The best thing is that you get to know them from their inside. I love to read about what’s going on in other bloggers life - even if it’s only day to day things - it tells me about other peoples life. From their point of view.

9. We’re all different and should be accepted for the one we are. Just like In Real Life. There is no difference. We can’t all have the same opinions or have the same blog layout or whatever - how would it look like if we all thought the same about everything? *horrible thought*

10. Do you believe you’re a good blogger? I mean a good blogger person, not only a good blog writer? Good, then you can tell me what a good blogger is!!! (Ha got ya ;-)

    Barbara UNITED STATES said:

    I’m a blogger, so I always comment when visiting a blog. I think non-bloggers aren’t aware of blog etiquette, i.e. - ALWAYS COMMENT! It’s like tipping waiters and waitresses, bloggers work hard. Do you hear that lurkers! Leave 15%!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, how do you reach them? I’m curious of how.


    interesting point there about a blog is about yourself from your own perspective. mmm… and your right about the misinterpretation as well - but i also think that people who blog need to think how what they write can be misinterpreted. there are couple blogs that have dropped off of my reader list cause this.
    nice post - my tt is up too. :razz:

    Lifecruiser: OK, we all have to think about what we write, but since we are ourselves and write from our point of view, there bound to be situations when we can be misinterpreted, because we are all different with different experiences behind us. But why not ask what the blogger really mean instead of at once be offended or mad or something else? There is a need of more positive communication in these situations.

    It’s much nicer to be friends despite having different opinions :-)

    Sissy B. UNITED STATES said:

    Ditto!!! Uh, oh….now I’m in trouble:wink:..I feel exactly the same way…you just said it so much better than I ever could.

    Lifecruiser: Hm. I don’t think I said it better, you just said it with your words and that’s what it all about, what you’re writing tells me a lot about YOU and I’m interested :-)

    Tink NETHERLANDS said:

    I agree with you 100 %! I’m interested in everyone’s blog, whether it’s a kindred spirit or someone completely different. If someone is reading my blog and doesn’t agree with something, that’s okay. Just show some respect for my opinion as I do for yours. That’s an important part of being a good blogger.
    Thanks for the “I Like You” flash, made me smile!
    My TT is about things that make me happy!

    Lifefcruiser: Yes, so true. Glad you enjoyed “I Like You”, it was the purpose with it, to gi´ve you a smile. Personally I just ADORE this flash piece. It’s a masterpiece. Makes me so happy every time I see it. And I can’t resist to run it often, but I’m a bit crazy ;-)

    ~ Stacy ~ UNITED STATES said:

    #1 - Well aren’t you just the kind of blogger I like to meet! Howdy do to you. [grin]

    #2 - Thanks, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say all T13 lists are great. Some of them really suck. [heh] I meant that in the nicest way possible, really, I did.

    #3 - Nice list. [cheeky grin]

    #4 - Yeah, what she said.

    #5 - I think the lurkers are afraid they’ll be pounced upon and verbally ridiculed or attacked, if they comment. It’s just a theory, mind you. It could be that they’re really rotten typists. ‘Course, I could keep going with these theories, but then I’d be stuck on #5 all day. (Okay, one more theory before I move on…) They’re probably not attention seekers, therefore, they prefer to remain in the shadows of blogspace.

    #6 - Swedes are crazy? I didn’t know that.

    #7 - Posh! Reality bites. I’ll cruise the blogosphere for witty conversationalists, thank you. There are so many awesome bloggers that I can’t get enough, either.

    #8 - Yuppers. I totally agree.

    #9 - You know, I think I really like you. [grin] Or, at the very least; I like the way you think. ;)

    #10 - I believe I’ll have another other peanut butter Nutter Butter sandwich cookie, please. (Yeah, I don’t know either.)

    #11 - Cake!? It’s my birthday, ya know. [chuckle] Okay, so lemme read the last two on your list, and then I’ll click there.

    #12 - Well aren’t you just the friendliest blogger! [smile] I’m kinda liking the welcome here. Thanks!

    #13 - Woo Hoo! Me too!

    Well that was more fun than a bag of Brach’s Bridge Mix!

    Have a terrific Thursday!

    Lifecruiser: Ah, pleased to meet you too ~Stacy ~! You have some really good points there on #5 :-) Hope you have a terrific Thursday youu too. And that you’re coming back to visit soon again :-)

    Seren UNITED KINGDOM said:

    Nice list. :grin: No, seriously, that was a good list. I’m quite new to all this blogging melarky. So your list came at just the right time. I’ll try to remember those points. Nice to “meet” you.

    Lifecruiser: Nice to meet you too :-) You’re warmth welcome back! I’ll be visiting you as soon as I can, quite busy right now.

    Louise UNITED KINGDOM said:

    Great list! :razz:

    I agree, I’m happy with just a short comment to say hi to me. I like to leave comments to let people know I’ve popped in, but sometimes lists, particularly on Thursday Thirteens, don’t always have a resonance to me, so rather than just say hello I lurk then leave.

    And I have also become a bit of a blog addict. Lots of interesting people that I would never meet to go and visit.

    Lifecruiser: Well, the good thing with the blogosphere is that you can choose yourself what you like to do. If you don’t feel like commenting, then you don’t :-) And you make so much friends that you maybe had passed in real life and this is something to learn from.


    I think in some ways we should consider what it is we share because there will be misinterpretations, but I don’t think that should be a reason not to share. If that makes sence.

    This is definatly an interesting post tho. I’m a little tired of reading about all the things which are “wrong” with the blogsphere, if it’s such a bad place why do these people stay? It’s refreshing to see some positive and friendly stuff :)

    Just another Thursday Thirteener passing through :)

    Lifecruiser: That totally makes sence. I agree with that. I guess the human kind has something in the genes that makes us easier pick up the negative things…. At least I think it seems like that sometimes :-)

    Tina PHILIPPINES said:

    Interesting observations/opinions. :) I bloghop around a lot because I am curious at how other people live their lives (though I immediately shy away from angst-filled blogs because…they’re just so negative for me. no offense anyone).

    I wonder the same thing about comments too. I know people visit my site, read my blog but no one really comments. Well, not always. Probably 1/3 of the comments on my site are the comments I posted in reply to the comments visitors posted. Did that make sense?

    Ah, anyway. :D I like your list. :) Happy Thursday! :)

    Lifecruiser: I know what you mean. It’s a pity though. Yes, that made sense, I think we’re a lot of bloggers with the same dilemma, though I reall would like to make a change in that….

    meredith UNITED STATES said:

    Love your list!!!!

    Happy TT!

    Lifecruiser: Thank you :-)

    carmen UNITED STATES said:

    Well, THIS blogger thinks you’re great!

    Lifecruiser: *blushing’ How kind of you to say that - we’re great but crazy hah? *lol*

    mar SPAIN said:

    I loved your “I like you” card, yes: I like you too :wink: I wonder as well why lurkers don’t de-lurk… I’d like to know who stopped by and I find it sad if they didn’t have anything to say on my beloved (although average) little blog…maybe they know I will delete any nasty/dirty comment, lol. I particularly like this meme because every person has a very different list, which is fun reading. Happy TT! :cool:

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Mar, that’s comforting to know :-) I don’t think your blog is average. It’s YOU. Every one is showing some personality in different ways and that’s what is so great.


    I liked the list. You make a lot of good points about blogging.
    I sometimes lurk because I am too busy to leave comments but I want to keep up with my blog friends.
    And sometimes I lurk because I’m not in a good enough mood that day to leave a comment.
    I used to wonder about lurkers on my blog as well but then it dawned on me that it really didn’t matter. To me anyways. So I got rid of my hit counter and have never given it much thought since.
    You write an upbeat and funny blog. People who lurk may be coming to your site to read something cheerful. Maybe they just don’t want to comment because they are shy. Or because the people who got there before them said it all. Or because they are lazy and just want to read. Or because…who knows why..

    Thanks Happy and Blue 2. We always love your comments. And you’re more than warmth welcome to lurk in between :-) And we could go on with the guessing for an eternity, couldn’t we? *lol*


    I’m really impressed that you comment on the comments.

    I really love the pictures you post and your commentary on the great places you’ve been. You go to places I will probably never get to so it’s fun to know more about them.

    I like you too!

    Lifecruiser: Ahh, Laaaaazy Daisy, we really love you for that lovely words. Sucking it in totally, like sponges ;-)

    colleen UNITED STATES said:

    “Nice list” is like saying “interesting” which makes me feel someone is holding back what they really want to say. When someone only says NICE LIST on my site, I think it might be spam. You know, all the complimenting spam we get trying to appeal to our blog vanity.

    Ditto on number 8!

    My 13 have fallen overboard.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, you have some very thoughtful point there. As always. You’re making me so curious over your T13 so I have to hop over at once and see the fall ;-)

    Stacy UNITED STATES said:

    I agree with most every point you made - blogs are very personal and I know that a lot of people won’t like or find something that strikes a chord with them on mine, just as I won’t on a lot of blogs I visit. And I do visit a lot - I can get lost in the “blogosphere’ for an hour or more easily. I totally lose track of time! I do love peeking into other people’s lives, but as someone above commented, I don’t particularly enjoy the angst-filled or negative ones. I try to leave comments when I do find one I enjoy, because I know how much I enjoy comments at my own blog.

    OK, that was a big ole ramble. LOL :) Great T13, hope you have a wonderful Thursday! :-)

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it’s very easy to lose track of time when bloghopping… Especially in the nights when I ought to go to bed….


    As a blogger I try to comment on every blog I visit and every blog that comments on mine. It’s just “polite” if you ask me. But it’s also enjoyable for me! I love the blogsphere, the many different personalities oozing out. I have made such wonderful friends through this venue and I wouldn’t trade it for all the world!

    Oh and “Great List!!” ;) Happy Thursday!!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, we know that as well YellowRose, we love your comments :-)

    Froggie CANADA said:

    I love your list. :grin: I’m one of those lurkers. I feel bad sometimes simply writting ‘nice list’ or something ’cause there seems to be a lot of bloggers out there who don’t like that. I really enjoy reading other people’s blog, but sometimes just don’t know what to say. I’m trying to change that! I am a long-time lurker on your site… love it!!

    Happy Thirteen Thursday!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Froggie, well, all I can say that you’re warmth welcome both to lurk and comment - when you feel like it :-)

    Cat. UNITED STATES said:

    Oh, yeah, I can take a hint. :cool:

    Nice list; I agree with most of them. I too would appreciate more comments from lurkers once in awhile.

    Happy TT!!

    Lifecruiser: Well, let’s just say: I’ll be over and leave you some comments :-)

    Kasia POLAND said:

    Now you got me:)) for a few long long minutes I have been thinking: am i a good blogger? Am i?? but - you are right - if I enjoy it, I am!! So be it! And so are you! That’s why I come here every time I surf the net. It’s like saying hello to your neighbours walking their dog and have this nice afternoon chat. So glad to have you here, dear lifecruisers!!

    Lifecruiser: Ah, glad you’re here Kasia, as always. We enjoy to pop over to your blog too when we surf! And missing you when you’re away :-)


    I’d like to say I blog for me, but that simply isn’t true. I have family, friends, and even clients *gasp* who read my blog - I have to be very careful how and what I talk about. It stifles me sometimes, but then again, it forces me to stay positive and I honestly believe that attitude bleeds into my everyday life.

    I completely agree with you on comments. On Thursdays, I only make it to about a fourth of the TT blogroll (and that’s being generous) before real life intrudes and I have to stop. However, the ones I pay a visit to, I always try and leave a thoughtful and/or funny comment. But it really doesn’t matter to me if someone returns the favor on my blog, I’m just grateful for the visit. :)

    “The blogosphere has some kind of social magnetism …” you couldn’t have nailed it any better than that. Just another reason I continue to blog - the truly amazing people out there reading. :)

    Lifecruiser: Well, I must admit that I can’t write all I want on our blog either, but sometimes that’s good… It’s the same here, bloggers I comment don’t have to pay back a visit - though it’s very nice if they do :-)


    I am so blog addicted–computer addicted in general, that I suffer when I am away from the computer. Mostly because when I go a day or two without checking up on things, so much awaits when I get back!

    I appreciate that you take the time to answer all comments. Where do you find the time?

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I so know the feeling -especially when we’re away on our longer trips!!! WEll, I guess I do it out of courtesy - I like to answer when someone speak with me *lol*. And the time - I’m up all night just to answer all comments, so it’s all your fault that I’m like a wandering Zoombie in the daytime ;-)

    Nancy UNITED STATES said:

    Great list…:mrgreen:

    No really. It got me to thinking. I use the great list thing when I just cannot relate to a list. It happens. I have been known to surf and not comment. Maybe the hormones get in the way and I want to be nosy, but not socialize.

    Bloghopping is SO addicting.

    I was worried that no one like my list this week and then just decided to go with it anyway. It’s where I am at. And, it seems that people did like it….So, I’m gonna say I am a good blogger and try to be a good blog friend.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, your example just shows that we should write what we feel. Bloggers really are understanding and caring, so we understand :-)

    Amy UNITED STATES said:

    That is a great list. Love the changing diaper typing one handed–that’s me LOL. Oh and if ppl have blogger sometimes the comment thing goes nuts and you can’t leave one

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I know. A lot of things can happen that don’t allow us to leave a comment, so we should bear that in mind too :-)


    I really like your list! I always try to leave comments on the blogs that I visit… except for the fact that my computer sometimes honestly acts up and won’t open the comment link. :???: It drives me crazy.

    Have a great Thursday!!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks my 2 cents :-) That has actually happened my a few times too, maybe it’s blogger who got problem sometimes OR maybe the browser.

    Amy-OhMy UNITED STATES said:

    I used to be very intimidated by blog life and refused to do it even though I kind of wanted to. I’m still a bit intimidated but really addicted:)

    Lifecruiser: I can understand the intimidation, because the blogosphere is HUGE ans especially if you aren’t that used to computers either. It can be a bit overwhelming in the beginning, but I’m glad you have over come it :-)

    Christine UNITED STATES said:

    I do agree with #7. My favorite thing is, I love to travel, and I may or may not be able to visit all these wonderful places, with their wonderful people, but I can visit them through everyone’s blogs.
    And not just visiting places, but learning about different customs and different foods and how life is different, but we all share the same thing….We love to blog!!LOL!
    Have a great Thursday!:grin:

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it’s like virtual travel - on earth and in minds :-)

    Courtney UNITED STATES said:

    I totally agree with all of these. You’ve made very good points. I never understand why people tell others what they should and shouldn’t write on their own blog. Thanks for stopping by today :)

    Lifecruiser: Thanks to you too :-)

    Frances UNITED STATES said:

    What a nice card.
    I love the blogging life too.
    One of my first blogs rarely got comments - then I didn’t blog for a few days and I found e-mails and stuff wondering where I had got to - so they are reading just not commenting. But they missed me and that was nice.
    Have a marvelous week.

    Lifecruiser: Nice to know that they do, but it would be even more nice to have the two way communication :-) I guess some bloggers may underestimate themself, thinking they can’t answer good enough. Little do they know that we love all comments :-)

    semitough CANADA said:

    Nice post.


    Sometimes I crack myself up!

    All seriousness aside, sometimes I just read and don’t comment simply because I’m time constrained. I love reading other folks writing. there are some really smart people out there. It is all so unique and interesting, but most often just don’t have the time.

    I meant what I said though….nice post.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks. (I really mean that ;-) Yes, of course, the time have a place in this too. Still, with the number of visitors in mind, I’m surprised, no matter how many excuses I can think of to not comment. *lol*

    Mom Nancy UNITED STATES said:

    First off, thanks for the nice comments on my list and my baby boy! I’m totally with you on wondering about the people who come by but don’t comment. I guess I figure that they don’t relate to what I write. I read a lot of Mommy blogs but I recently wrote A LOT of entries about my trip to Romance Writers’ of America’s National Conference in Atlanta and only the last one got any comments, and that was because I BEGGED for them. My statcounter says I was getting visits but no comments. I admit I often leave, on TT, nice list comments but I always feel bad about it. Like semitough said, sometimes I just don’t have time. I do want to do better though!

    Lifecruiser: Well, we shouldn’t feel any guilt about it, as long as we do leave real comments at other occasions :-)


    Great list! My T13 is up.

    That was my clipboard message for today. It is the very least I will leave because it is rude to link and run. At least I think so and it’s all about ME! LOL. And who are you that is so wise in the ways of the blogosphere? I will return to recieve more of this wisdom.

    Lifecruiser: He he. We’re the crazy Swedes… *lol* You’re warmth welcomed back at any time to witness our strange wisdom :-)

    Denise UNITED STATES said:

    Nice post.

    Lifecruiser: You teaser!!!!!! *ROFLMAO*

    Denise UNITED STATES said:

    HA! Kidding!!! :lol:

    We were certainly on the same wavelength, huh? I don’t take much personally on the web. Unless I see my name or a blatant reference to my blog, I just let things slide off of my back.

    According to my counter, I get plenty of visitors…not as many comments as I used to, but I’ve noticed that comments are fewer almost everywhere.

    Lifecruiser: Yes we sure were and I laughed!!!! The few comment might have something to do with the heatwave in the summer and now all is getting ready for schools and jobs again. And the weather are still very good, so people like to do things outdoors instead. Pity that I don’t have a laptop…. *lol*

    peri UNITED STATES said:

    nice 13
    thanks for stopping by.
    Blogging is fun and there are so many great folks out there with interesting points of view and lives.
    I enjoy and try not to worry about “rules” because then the fun is ruined.
    Happy TT

    Lifecruiser: Exactly what I think too, rules ruins the fun, better to chill out and just have some fun :-)

    LaShawn UNITED STATES said:

    I wonder about lurkers as well. Only about 5% of my visitors comment. Makes me wonder…hmmmm.:???:

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it’s about the same low number here, what are the rest doing here?

    Janet UNITED STATES said:

    I totally loved this list! I particularly liked what you had to say about those that write “Nice list” or similar…I’ll try to remember it!

    Thanks for stopping by :-)

    Lifecruiser: Glad you did Janet :-)

    Debbie UNITED STATES said:

    I did not play today but came to visit and say hi! Wow great list and I got to blogroll and listen to pink butt monkeys and sunflowers with glasses! So cool! :-)

    Lifecruiser: Yes, they are really coool, my favorites - besides you all ;-)

    wolfbernz UNITED STATES said:

    Hello Lifecruiser,
    I agree with #7
    My name is…….and I am addicted!
    And the lurkers! Who are these people? And why are the so quiet?

    Lifecruiser: I’m glad you’ve come out with that, now there may be some help for you. But not to quit blogging ;-) About those lurkers: maybe their keyboard is broken and miss some keys? *lol*


    You bring up so many great points. #5 is the one that really sticks with me. I get a good number of hits, but comments, except on TT, of course, are few and far between. Even when I ask specific questions that just about anyone would have some opinion on. Can be frustrating to feel like you’re talking into this void, huh?

    Thanks for visiting my TT! I’m glad I stopped by here. :)

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it’s sure keep you wondering who they are and why. The ever ending mystery :-)

    K T Cat UNITED STATES said:

    I asked about comments once on my blog. I got an anonymous email from someone who said they were confused by the comment form and didn’t want to make a mistake, so they never commented. I think uncertainty and a lack of confidence in your voice keeps many people from commenting.

    My TT is up.

    Lifecruiser: Well, maybe there are a some unsecure lurkers, but surely not all of these thousands we got hit by….? Of course there are a lot of reasons for why they don’t comment. But there is sooo many visitors, so it keeps me wonder anyhow.

    Danielle UNITED STATES said:

    I love your blog! This is definitely the most friendly, warm, and comfortable-feeling blog I’ve visited!

    I’m fascinated by other countries and cultures and this is the first outside US blog I’ve found (at least that I find interesting or is in English :smile:) so I’m adding you to my blogroll!

    My blog is still fairly new, so I worry a lot about the lurkers–I’m still in a nervous stage of letting the world know my strange ways, thoughts, and ideas! Comments and the social interaction are one of the main reasons I blog!

    And I think I’m going to have to try your potato dish–sounds yummy!

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Danielle - I’m sure we’re going to love your blog too :-) You know, although I really would like to RIGHT NOW, I have to decide to re-visit your excellent blog another day. It’s 04:05 in the morning here and I should be in bed now, don’t you think? *lol* So, I’ll be back, be sure of that. And I’ve added you as you going to notice…

    Happy Pyttipanna ;-)

    Leanne UNITED STATES said:

    You’ve got so many comments, what do you need mine for? ;)

    I know what you mean, we blog, we love the comments, we blog some more. It is totally addicting! Language is a common barrier, though, and if more people understood that there would probably be far less bickering. He said/she said/What I meant Was…. the written word is hard to hear, sometimes!

    Wonderful, thoughtful Thirteen, as always!

    Lifecruiser: I need your comment just beacuse it’s YOURS :-) Your words are so true, the written word can be much harder to hear when you don’t hear the other persons vioce or can see face expressions etc.

    claudie FRANCE said:

    I’m agree with you! Looking at blogs is a real pleasure! yours is particulary attractiv! you love your life so your blog is full of energy!
    But for some people as me it’s not so easy to writte comms. Why? First you have to speak a good english and i’m french and often french people have problem with english or other. Two as many people i beginn on internet. Three, for a long time i thought what could i say on my life: all goes so quick when you work and you would want to have passion but with your family life…but now i’m free, holidays and so curious to see how people think, their passions, their life. In this moment for different reasons i can’t travel but in my futur i will! So looking and speaking with people is a very nice thing!
    Don’t laugh for my bad english please, it’s not easy for me! Have a good day! Bye bye!

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Claudie :-) And it’s not at all difficult to understand your english and I wouldn’t laugh at your english either - on the contrary - I think it’s worth even more because you’ve at least tried to comment. I know that it can be difficult to get french people to speak English and it’s a pity. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t 100% right, you get yourself understood anyway and that’s what’s matter :-)


    I totally agree with your list 100% I LIKE YOU too!! The care2 video was so funny!! :cool:

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Ocean Lady. It’s always making me so happy watching that one :-)

    Cindi UNITED STATES said:

    This is my first visit to your Bloggy world and I was really interested in your list. I too like for my visitors to really take a few minutes and tell me a bit about what they thought of what I said. If people didn’t like it well it’s okay to say, man your list sucks, or that post was stupid. Or whatever. Being inherently nosy, the blog world is my chance to eavesdrop all over blogland.

    Thanks for reminding me to write better comments, and better posts.

    Cindi :wink:

    Lifecruiser: You’re welcome Cindi :-) I’ll drop over and say hello (and some more) to you soon!


    Excellent post Lifecruiser!

    I totally agree with #3, 4 & 5. Which is why I am only commenting to this TT today (it’s Sunday!)

    I hate brief comments or comments that indicated that the reader didn’t even read the post.

    I try to visit people who visit me but it’s not always possible. If I do take the time to go I try to give it my all, otherwise I sometimes just don’t visit just for the sake of visiting.

    I blogged about something like this similar a few weeks ago on my TT which I don’t believe you read, or at least you didn’t comment to, so I’ll give it to you now if you’re interested. (Not trying to get more hits, just trying to save you the trouble of looking for it - I try to be kind that way, but maybe I shouldn’t bother because people interpret it the wrong way.

    I am starting to be a lurker on some sights but only because they never visit me or comment so I’m not bothering to comment on theirs. What’s the point? I should really just stop going but I hate to admit that I am kind of hooked on their blogs, as lame as the blogger may be. These are not people who have alot of traffic either which I can understand you can’t visit everyone if you are very popular. Maybe they just don’t like my blogging but I would like to know in a constructive way if that is the case. You can’t cater to everyone and you have to be true to yourself when you blog. Anyways, these bloggers are what I refer to as the snobby bloggers in my TT above.

    Well thanks for visiting my TT. I will try to be back more often.

    Have a good week! Hope your sis and your other peoples you commented about are ok.

    Lifecruiser: Well ICL, you were wrong - I had comment your post :-) And I still think it’s a good post too! I don’t mind that people leave links in comments either. I’m not the kind of person that get annoyed over all sort of things ;-)

    I loved this! Number 3 was great, especially the one hand diaper part! :)

    Lifecruiser: Thanks, well, I guess I wanted to show that we all have different reality and that can be what actually is going on. We have to have more understanding for each other I think :-)

    first of all, am so glad you not only stopped by my blog, but commented so that i could find your wonderful blog!

    second, what a fantastic idea for a Thursday Thirteen! you expressed your thoughts so well, and i can’t even tell you how many of them i have wondered myself in one way or another.

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Dawn. i’m glad you liked it :-)
