It’s my Birthday so I’ll bitch if I want too.

NOTE: This has been an ongoing struggle for me and I’m not out to upset anyone, just getting some “stuff” off my chest.

I have this little thing about blogging that irks me big time. When I go to someone’s blog and leave a nice comment on a post or multiple posts and I don’t even hear a “hey thanks for dropping by.” from them. I visited a whole bunch of new blogs yesterday and of the one’s that I visited only 1 person commented back, who has been added to my blogroll and I hope they come back to visit. I’m hoping that I do hear something back from the others also because I realize that people are busy, etc. but it’s just a little bit disheartening to go and leave comments on blogs and not hear anything back. It almost feels like I’ve been blown off in a way. Does this bother anyone else or is it just me? I’m done bitching for now.


Later tonight….Bathing Ms. Laci….Complete with pictures.

  1. Happy Birthday Chica!

    Don’t get too disheartened about the lack of return comments. I’ve learned not to take it personally and I’ve been guilty of not returning comments too. Sometimes life gets in the way and too many days pass and you just lose track. I don’t think anyone’s lack of response is meant as a personal statement. And too, it may take days but I bet a lot of them end up coming by here after all.

  2. Thank You Terri!

  3. Happy happy! It could be that it’ll take those bloggers awhile to get back to you. Not everyone is as addicted as we are. Also go back and check their comments where you commented. I check on the blogs that comment on my site (always) but I usually respond to them on my own comment section right after their comment. I find it strange to hold a ‘conversation’ in 2 different places.

  4. Happy Birthday.

    I always try to respond to any comments left for me. After all, making new friendships is what it is all about.(at least for me) On, the other hand my sister doesn’t comment, (she reads) she only comments on someone who she knows personally. I guess every one is different.

    Hope you have a wonderful day:)

  5. Happy Happy birthday! Um, I usually make a point to visit a person’s blog if they have made a comment on my blog. Somtimes, I take a day. But usually, I’m good about it. I think it is considerate. Plus, I’m always interested in who visited my site (isn’t that the fun part of the blogosphere, to get to see who all is out there?) If someone never comes to my site to comment I just, um, I don’t give them a second thought.

    By the way, I think your background is very very cute!

  6. Happy birthday! I always try to comment back with a “thanks for stopping by”, and since not many people leave me some love, it’s not too much to keep up with. Of course, if I’m the 300th person to comment, I don’t really expect a thanks comment any time soon. =)

  7. Oh, and Wenda was seen lately on my blog! Check it out! =)

  8. Happy Birthday! And I completely feel ya on the leaving comments and hearing crickets back!! I usually comment back on the same day and so I apologize for even my slight delay!! It’s LAMEO! So bitch all you want girlie!!! πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by and please come again! πŸ™‚

  9. Happy birthday! I sent you a cowboy in the mail. Hope he arrives on time!

  10. Happy Birthday!!

    I try to comment back on everyone that visits me but sometimes I get behind and then forget. But I do agree that it’s disheartening to take the time to comment and then not get any recognition back. SO I try to make a great effort to not forget.

    Visiting from SITS and following Wenda. =)

  11. Thanks for stopping over and leaving a comment…hope your b-day was a good one!

  12. Happy Birthday! I hope it’s a good one.

    And I hear ya. I at least try to stop by those who visit me (ummm, thanks for stopping by btw!), but many of the blogs I read regularly don’t comment and I’m ok with that. But I am *this* close to dropping some of them because they just don’t interest me enough anymore AND it’s totally one way.

  13. Happy Birthday! And I know what you mean. I am beginning to understand how the strange, uncool kids in school felt. I feel so uncool and kind of stupid when I am ignored…..I’m not used to that. Are there clicks in blogland?

  14. happy birthday!

    thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. i wouldn’t get too worked up. if you left comments yesterday, it has only been one day, and it is the weekend. most people take off for the weekend. plus, with the ability to preschedule posts, someone could take a couple of days off from blogging and not be around to return comments.

    i work full time, blog, have a family, etc. so i don’t get to return comments the same day. i always do get to it within a few days but there is life to be lived.

    i hope you had a great day!

  15. Day 3 of the Where’s Wenda? Contest is here. Today I am visiting all of the SITStas that commented on Three Bay B Chicks. That means you! Thanks so much for stopping by and for being a great SISta!


  16. Happie Birthday! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  17. Happy birthday!! πŸ™‚

  18. Happy Birthday to you… Happy Birthday to you… It’s my daughter’s bday today, too!

  19. Hope you had a great Birthday!! I completely understand your frustration!!

    I am here from SITS!

    Hope you have a great Sunday!!

  20. Happy late birthday…I’m always late! πŸ™‚ Hope it was a good one, and I understand your frustration when comments aren’t returned… I think I have like a 80-20 return rate just keep on keepin’ on..but you’re right..bitchin’ is definitely allowed on your birthday, so chime on! I’m wondering, if I left a comment on yesterday, which would have actually been about 5 days ago……?!? If not, sorry! I get there eventually, and try to comment on everything i missed!
