BTW Blog Stuff
I added a little section off to the side there... about giveaways. When one of the blogs that I follow is doing a giveaway, instead of doing a post that will just get lost down the page, I'll add a link to that section over there on the right. *** I've been wondering... who are the really popular bloggers? And how do you know if someone is popular? Cake Wrecks- wildfire. Thousands of readers. Hilarious blog. When that day's cake wreck goes up around 9:30 a.m. EST, the comments pour in. I can only dream of a day that I would have so many comments on a post! And others... but I'd love to know more about the bloggers who have "made it big" and make money and have wild success and fame. Like Pioneer Woman. *** Like the connections made and strength built between Braja and Vodka Mom and Amy and Heinous and... Can you imagine having a blog where you constantly get well over 30 comments on each post? *** I so admire the bloggers who reply to every comment. I try, I really do. But from the time I approve a comment to the time that I click back to my own blog so I can reply to the comments... I sometimes get distracted. *** And the whole "Blogs of Note" thing that blogger does. I've found some great blogs that way- like Tangobaby. How cool to become a Blog of Note, recognized by someone at Blogger. I have dreams of someone being paid to sit and read through blog after blog after blog and find great ones, unique ones, interesting ones. Is it sad to admit that I lust after being a Blog of Note?? *** I also wonder about those popular blogs and how it feels to get negative comments. I've seen it happen and I've read bloggers write about getting a negative nellie popping up so they have to review comments first. I review comments only so I know I've got comments to read! Does getting negative or inappropriate comments mean you've "made it?" *** Guess that's enough of my blog-dom for now!
