Just a Quickie- Comments on Comments

I’m usually fairly good about leaving comments on my blog about comments people leave me. I just realized today that I must have been in a brain fog because I was bad and didn’t leave a lot of comments on my own blog. I have remedied that today and left comments to everyone who left me a comment. Ok, I’m sick of using the word comment.

Now, when I become too lazy to leave comments and feel the need to buy them that is when I will stop blogging.

Most people probably won’t bother to go back and read all the comments I just left but that’s OK too. I did it partly for myself–it’s that whole Catholic guilt thing again. I went to a Catholic school when I was young like 50 years ago and those nuns made you feel guilty about everything. Speaking of, I wrote a post called “Smelling the Past”.

Now, I wrote that post on November 2, 2007. Since May 10th there has been a huge spike in the number of people reading it especially in the last couple of days. Like 300 people have read it. What’s that all about??

Why does eveyone want to smell my past all of a sudden?

    i have an ugly post that’s gone past 500 views but has like ten comments on it. Hm.

    Buying comments is just sad.

    I just went and read your smells post too. Good one! I wasn’t reading your blog back then so it was new to me. I may just go back and read all your previous posts when I have some time. I like them a lot.

    I like it when people comment back to my comments and I regularly check the “my comments” section to see who responded. I try to respond to all my comments too, but I go into each one and click “edit” and add my response at the bottom and bold and italicize it so you can tell what I wrote.

    You have to love good old Catholic guilt. I don’t know where I would be without it! Now I am passing it on to my girls. 🙂

    You never have to worry about responding to my comments. I can never remember what I typed anyway. My feed reader is wicked full.

    I think I read that post when you orginally wrote it. Do I get any points for that?

    You’re so good about commenting on comments. I am not so good. I should work on that some. I really should. I won’t buy them though, I promise. 🙂

    You wonder what it is about a certain post that grabs the attention of people.
    I can’t believe anyone would sell comments.

    @Teeni
    Well I am happy you got to read one of my earlier posts.

    @ birdpress
    I could never decide which way to put in my own comments but I have been doing it this way for a while and I’m not good with changing my routine.

    I’m always checking for comments. I love to see what people have to say.

    I think I have some interesting stories that I wrote at the beginning. A real popular one is when I broke my eardrum with a Chinese stick that holds beef teriyaki all because of my cats.

    @Just a Mom

    I didn’t bring up my children Catholic but they somehow inherited the Catholic guilt from me.

    @ Peter
    You are too funny, Mr Parkour.

    @ JavaQueen

    I hope I didn’t corn-fuse you too much!!!

    @ Odette
    I am having a wonderful weekend so far and my wasband will be thrilled that someone on the blogs thought to wish him a Happy Father’s Day.

    @ witchypoo
    Thank goodness, someone else who doesn’t remember stuff.

    @ CuriousC

    You get many points. It shows how long we’ve known each other. You were one of my first readers. I was thrilled to even have a reader. I never though anyone would care to read what I had to write. We’ve come a long way, kiddo. I was going to say baby but that didn’t sound right.

    We all have stuff we should work on. I wouldn’t stress over it. I am sure you are a lot busier than I am. I have all day to do what I please. I’m glad you won’t buy your comments, though. 🙂

    I’m kind of awful about leaving comments on my own blog sometimes too., and like you I feel really guilty about it.

    When I first read your sentence about school, I thought you wrote: I went to Catholic school for 50 years.

    I just left comments on about 50 comments. I got way behind again. Oh God, I’m glad I didn’t go to Catholic school for 50 years. Three was enough.
