Hmmm.......

Sometimes when I look at this blog I try and come up with things to write about based on what generates the most comments.

A lot of times, I find however, that what I'm really passionate about rarely generates as many comments as the things I throw out on a whim.

Case in point.... A scant 2 people have commented on the fact that I am in possession of a 100 year old diary, came into possession of it in an unusual way, and now want to share it with you all.....Seriously, have you met me. (well some of you have).. This is big stuff....   However, there are 15 comments in the post where I basically berate the scrambled egg recipes of everyone I know. You all loved the fact that I want a leopard print Snuggie (8 comments) but did not care that I made my own cherry liqueur or that I have baked bread over an open hearth (0 comments, both) .... I see a disconnect between us....(or perhaps it's between me and the rest of the world.) I don't even want to think about what this means about all of you.....

There is no accounting for taste I suppose. Yours or mine....

We all did come to some common ground in my Surveyor's House post but that was because some nice people from the SD tourism bureau happened upon it.

Facebook commentors you are exempt from this tirade* commentary as you all comment on everything. (Thank you Toni Lynn, Stella, Diana & Krista!) although I do like it when you visit me over here... And Michael, you could get a sign on and start posting comments rather than just randomly emailing me your thoughts.... (Ha-worked you in again!) Remember though, I approve all comments before they are published.

Sorry! I try to comment as often as I can, but sometimes I read and mean to come back and comment and forget.

I was excited for you when I read the post. It is very cool and I look forward to this man's thoughts and feelings from way back then--wondering if he feels the same things men do now...

Christine said...

Oh no! Now it sounds like I'm yelling at you all! When I'm really just whining....


I do that too alot with your blog Karley. Sometimes I have too much to say that very minute and need to go back and forget!!!

Christine, I am sorry. I am a new reader and I really enjoy checking in with you.

I was meaning to post responses to two of your posts when I read them but the baby has other plans sometimes. But I will do so post-haste!

Christine said...

Oh no! Here and on Facebook I have all kind of people apologizing. It was more a funny look at the fact that I get more posts on my trivial things than things I really love than lack of comments in general.

I do however, love comments so if this is what it takes, so be it...

However, I think I've done nothing to dispel the current "tone" that I've been accused of as of late!!!

Your posts are interesting,entertaining and educational. You my friend are beautiful, intelligent and inspirational. Now go look in the mirror and repeat this outloud three times :)

Christine said...

Ha! All of this validation. I should whine more often....

Vivacious said...

I didn't know there was a Facebook link...
I want to make the liqueur but would end up drinking it all myself (not all at once of course)...
I gave you a snuggie pattern link ...
and I am DYING to know what is in that diary LOL

Christine said...

Wow vivacious! You're a devoted reader, thanks!

There is no actual FB link on this blog. I just import this blog to my personal FB page. It makes for more regular readers.

Kristin said...

Um yeah I love the egg post and have been using your method. As for the cherry liqueur, I'm down right envious of your talent and passion! Hey whine all you want it's your blog and I love it. Thanks!

Christine said...

Aawww...Kristin....That's nice!
