2nd post of day...




You know what's really great about *blogging* (and I know you do) versus *journaling* (which I've been doing my whole life)?  It's the wonder of technology as well as that little *bing!* that tells you that someone has read your post and and taken the time to comment. It's like Pavlov's dog... when it bings, I smile.

I have to admit that I read only about 10 blogs regularly, check in once in a while with a few others, and comment only on about 6.  Like Facebook, which I check in on only about 4 - 6 times during the year and have about 20 friends (not 200+ like most people), I'm happy with my chosen few.  However, I do "try" to read more blogs and am not against joining more sites, but by the time I've read the ones I have and then comment and write my own, I'm usually *blogged out* for the day. Maybe I could try to read at least a few more new ones a week. That could be a goal. We'll see.

The way this post came about is that DH and I went walking today... and halfway into our walk, my phone *binged" and I smiled. And I thought, "hmm-mmm, it's funny how a little *bing!" can make you smile."

Oh! - now my timer just *dinged* and that means our steamed stuffed artichokes are ready... gotta go!

  1. I do so enjoy your blog, Rian, and I'm glad that my comment makes you smile twice: once when you hear I've commented, and again (I hope) when you read it! Sending you lots of love today. :-)

    1. Isn't it amazing that such a little thing can bring about a smile? Makes me want to comment on more of the blogs I read. Thanks, DJan.

  2. I don't get a 'bing' so it is always a pleasant surprise when I check back on a post. You are right, though, it is hard to keep up and setting limits are essential.

    1. Yes, I definitely have to set limits. I find that if I stay on the computer too long... or even knit or crochet too long... I end up with a headache (not to mention not getting other things done that need doing).

  3. I'd also like to comment more often but sometimes I just can't catch up.
    Blogging is one of my favorite activities.
    I love steamed stuffed artichokes!

  4. I will picture you smiling when you get a bing as soon as I post my comment :) Limits and balance are important in blogging and you seem to be handling it well. I enjoy visiting all my blogger friends blogs and want to keep it a joy..not a job. I hope it is the same for them towards me.
