It's all about blogging

I found this meme on Mrs. B's blog, and I understand it is written by Blest With Sons. From my answers, I guess I'm not a hard-core blog addict yet. Thankfully!

How many do you read regularly?

There are about 3 or 4 I look at daily. Others I check once or twice a week.

How many are written by women? By men?

All are by women.

Are they all Christian? How about the same denomination?

All are Christian. I’m not sure of their denomination.

What kinds of posts do you like the best?

I like the encouraging, the honest, the funny and the ones that bring me closer to God’s heart.(that was Mrs. Blythe's answer [and Mrs.B’s] but it was so good I decided to leave it). I also like homemaking ideas and posts that convict and challenge me.

What kinds of posts are you most likely to comment on?

I like to get comments so I try and reciprocate by commenting on other's blogs, but we still have dialup so commenting is not as quick and easy as it might be. For that reason I don’t comment as much as I might like to. I like to comment on posts that speak to me personally, or posts where I think a comment might encourage the writer or someone else.

What makes you add a blog to your favorites list/bloglines? Or conversely, what drives you away from a blog?

If I regularly enjoy reading a blog – beautiful or funny writing. Inspiring posts. Lovely pictures or artwork. The ones I am likely to avoid visiting are debating/argumentative types. (I’m with you on that one, Mrs. B!)

What’s your favorite kind of post to write?

Posts about the Bible or the Christian life and posts about my home. Also posts about something interesting (small or great) that we might have been doing. I also like to write posts about cooking and recipes, and posts about my memories. Maybe you have deduced that I just plain like to write!

What do you think is your biggest strength blogwise? Biggest weakness?

Biggest strength is that I enjoy writing just for its own sake. Although I hope that others are reading my blog and enjoying it, I would probably blog even if I knew no one else would read it. But then, my biggest weakness is feeling bad if my post doesn't get's silly, I know! (Again I left Mrs. B’s answer in place -- it was so true of me!)

What do you want to change, if anything, about the way you blog?

I would like to find more time for blogging. I have so many ideas for posts I’d like to share. I am trying to get over the idea (and I’ve been helped in this by reading Mrs. Wilt and Mrs. B) that I need to have a long post to make it worth my blogging time. Shorter posts can be every bit as interesting and helpful. I’d also like to include more pictures.

How many times a day do you say the word blog?

Maybe once or twice. (You didn't ask how many times I *think* the word!)

How many bloggers have you met in real life – not counting the ones you knew before they started blogging?

None. Several of my real-life acquaintances have blogs, however.

And that's all about blogging for now!


  1. "How many times a day do you say the word blog?

    Maybe once or twice. (You didn't ask how many times I *think* the word!)"

    I LOL when I read this sentence!

    I really liked you answers and you're right....I think short posts are wonderful and it took me awhile to feel this way too. I used to think 'Why should I share this....EVERYBODY already knows this.' but my friend and teammember on Be Not Conformed, Mrs. R, told me that that is not the case.

    I think ladies like to 'visit' and share their home with other like-minded ladies so the picture posts and tips posts are greatly appreciated.

    Of course, my comment was **anything** but short! LOL (o;

  2. But I loved your nice long comment... thanks for sharing!

    By the way, did you notice my sidebar is back where it belongs? I edited my profile to add in my newest grandchild... and lo & behold, the sidebar returned to its rightful place! Hurray!

  3. Yay!! Who can figure these things out? I certainly can't!! Blogger can be so temperamental sometimes! Oh well, can't complain, it IS free! LOL


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
