Re-replying to a Comment
13 April, 2017 / 5 Comments

The Situation You make a comment on someone’s blog post. The blogger kindly replies to your comment. But the blogger asks a question in his/her reply. Ask Yourself Do you make the effort to return to the blog to re-reply to your initial comment to answer the blogger’s question? Why or Why Not? Okay, I don’t get why people don’t do this. Please don’t take offence if you are one of the people that don’t, as I am just expressing my opinion. In fact, I would like to hear from you! Please explain to me why not. The way I […]

A Look at March 2017
2 April, 2017 / 2 Comments

Well peeps, I didn’t get much up on the blog in March. Why? Well, because hubby and I are getting our house ready to sell SO THAT WE CAN MOVE!! It’s proving to be a lot of work and very time-consuming. Add that to caring for an infant and there is hardly any down time! So, blogging unfortunately has to suffer. We’re hoping to have our house up this month, though, so hopefully I’ll get to blog more after that. But then there will be looking for a new house and the big move, so we’ll just have to see! Oh, […]

Commenting on old Blog Posts

Commenting on old Blog Posts
15 February, 2017 / 22 Comments

  This thought actually occurred to me recently when I was reading the February Discussion Challenge Link-Up & Giveaway on FYFA. You can earn extra points toward the giveaway by commenting on select old discussion posts of the chosen blogger. This got me wondering: how often do you comment on older blog posts? I almost never have people commenting on my older posts. At most it would be posts from the last month getting new comments. If I do get new comments on my old posts, it’s typically only spam comments, not even real ones. I, myself, will comment on older […]

Negative Comments
17 January, 2017 / 14 Comments

I recently received a negative comment here on my blog and I was taken aback.  I didn’t know what to do about it.  I moderate my comments because I don’t want a bunch of spam comments going up, and so I wasn’t sure whether I should approve this negative comment or not. Now, I’m not saying this person was negative in the way that they were disagreeing with me or something.  No.  This person was straight-up rude in their comment.  Comments that disagree with me or an opinion I express, sure!  Go for it!  I love discussing even if we […]

New Year’s Resolutions/Challenges
1 January, 2017 / 6 Comments

Happy new year everyone!  I kind of (without meaning to) took a month off blogging there.  Oops! December is a busy month!  Anywho, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all the best in the new year.  Below are my resolutions and challenges for this year! 2017 resolutions: Blog more often and more consistently! Keep my house cleaner. Start and finish (at least) my second draft of the manuscript I wrote for NaNoWriMo in AHEM! 2013.  Seriously.  That’s pathetic. Be the best mom I can be! Be happier overall with life and stress less. 2017 […]

So…I had a baby
19 October, 2016 / 4 Comments

Well, hello everyone!  Hope you all have been doing good!  So, I’m back…again.  Remember that time about a year ago when I went away for a while because I was pregnant?  And then I came back for a few months…and then went away again?  Well, I had my baby about 4.5 months ago.  Now that I am through the newborn fog and moving on to more of the sunshine and lollipops I was actually expecting to come of this (man, they are NOT KIDDING when they tell you it’s hard!  Seriously, people, listen when people give you advice about the […]
