A Proclamation To The Blogging World

I'll admit it. Sometimes, I just don't feel very "bloggy", and I take a few days off. Sometimes, I just lurk and I don't leave a comment. It's nothing personal, sometimes I just want the luxury of reading without thinking. However, I've resolved that I will henceforth from this day forward leave a comment no matter what. It may say; "I read over your blog and found it to be very inquisitive." Or, it may even read as, "LOL! You're too funny!" Whatever. Prepare for the onslaught of comment mediocrity, but at least you will know that you are loved and your writing is being enjoyed. I will stroke the blogger egos of my friends. I will add to their comment counts. I will be a shining example of blogging sportsmanship to bloggers the whole world over.

You should know that when you go to pay tribute to me that I prefer to be cast in statue form made out of chocolate and mounted on a base of graham crackers and marshmallows.

Mmmm, marshmallows. That's what this post was about, right?

Mimo said...

You don't have to do that for me... just seeing you show up on my stat counter is enough :)

I don't care if you sit in the corner of my blog, don't talk to anyone and eat all the Ritz and cheese. I just want you to show up. It' not a party without elastic waistbands.

So we should immortalize you as a giant S'more? Sounds good to me. You'll be the hit of every campfire.

And I find your posts enlightening and humorous.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

That's right. You've got to celebrate me baby, you've got to praise me like you should! Want S'More? I can continue singing that song all day.

Actually, I just decided that if I read something and vow to come back and comment, I often don't. Personally, I prefer lame comments to zero comments, and I figured out that other bloggers are probably the same way. So, let the lame comments begin!!!! Or, in my case, continue!

mmmmmmm that tribute sounds delicious!!!

Say it ain't so, Joe!!
Here's the thing. Say I write a real dud of a post. Then you stop by and feel compelled to leave a remark, but the only thing you can think of is a mild 'lol'.
Then what happens? I'll feel compelled to respond to That! (Now, of course, you will always be waay more witty than just a plain old 'lol', but you get my point--and really, your goal is to have to have to think less, be 'on' less.)
And here's the other thing--why the heck are you trying to raise the bar so high for the rest of us? ;)

elizabeth, I just want people to feel comfortable leaving lackluster comments in their wake. It happens. We all have busy lives, and we're all, pardon me, lianne, "Excessively Diverted" at times. I'm just trying to alleviate some of the blogger perfection pressure, is all. :)

There are days I don't feel like writing stuff either. I usually put on a video or two like I will do shortly!

You know what. I have heard of Smores of course but I have never had one (or six!). Also what is moon pie?

Carrotjello said...

Great post! Keep 'em coming!

Suzanne said...

I guess this would be a good time to admit that I read your blog! This is my first time posting, but I've know that you're hilarious for a long time. Thanks for making me smile! :)

Syar said...

I was halfway through making you that statue but *bu-urp*, snack time got the better of me. WIll an ROTFLMAO make you feel better?

jams- I built my entire Christmas skit that I wrote this year around the Southern tradition of moon pies. Here's a picture. Moon Pies. I don't like marshmallows outside of hot cocoa, and this has a chewy, rubbery marshmallow layer sandwiched between two cakey things and then dipped in chocolate. Just because I like to "moon" doesn't automatically mean that I like moon pies, jams.

carrot jello- Thank you kind madam for your strong words of encouragement.

suzanne!!!-Welcome! I've seen you around the blogging circles. Glad that I could make you smile when so many real life people tell me I make them cry (or mad). :)

syar- Where's my LOL? Are you being stingy with the LOL supply again, Syar? Is there an LOL shortage in Malaysia? Come on, give it up syar. One big LOL for the Infidel! I need LOL's since you can't very well applaud with gooey marshmallow and chocolate covered fingers, now can you?

jams o donnell said...

Ah so that's what a Moon Pie is. We call them Wagon Wheels

compulsive writer said...

So does this mean if there is no comment from EWL on our blogs we will start to worry you no longer enjoy our blogs? Kidding! That comment thing is so complicated, is it not?

Please know I read you and am highly entertained whether or not I leave a comment.

I also applaud your effort to comment ceaselessly.

compulsive writer said...

p.s. sorry about the shocking lack of chocolate in that previous tribute.

I'm a comment whore compulsive. It matters not what they look like or how they read either. Although, personally, just between you and me, you always have something fantastic to say!
