Question for YOU ?? - YES --- YOU ;-)

Question for YOU ----
Comments ? Just thinking a bit lately and hearing friends say "they LOVE it when peps leave comments on their blog" ... Soooo -- my question to YOU is ???

Why is it that we don't so oft ? If your up for the answer ( which i'm sure you are ) how come we don't send out a little love ?
I think maybe we ALL want to feel validated / heard / understood / maybe that someone hears ... and we are alive and living - in this CRAZY world / life that goes on and on and on ...

Sooo - pick your A. B. C. or D. E.-- and you can even do it anonymously ... this is really to get an idea what people think . Please -- pRettY PreTTY pleasssee :-)
Thanks ever so !!!

A. Don't have the time to respond - running out the door ... late , late , late for a very important date !!!

B. Feel silly - don't really know what to say or how to say it

C. Don't really know the person , just came upon the blog by chance

D. This post doesn't even relate to me OR don't really relate to it ...

E. Other ... that's where you type out the idea -- you can still do anonymous :-)

Well - me personally - most of it is TIME -- Rrr... Wish I had more - or knew had to organize it better . Poop !! Oh well . Then - as far as knowing what to say - I don't really make lots of sense anyways , i pretty much type like i talk , which is my own lingo anyway . Let's just say ... Glad for spell check on HERE - cause then NOT only would peps not understand they ALSO wouldn't even know what word I was trying to SAY ... LOL Thanks Thanks ever so for playing along :-)

i think my reason would be a,b,c,d, and e, depending on the day! but you're right! i love it when i get comments. i often find myself going to my blog just to see if anyone has left any comment, yet, i rarely leave comments myself. i think i do enjoy the validation or that someone cares what i say or think. so, i'm going to do better. i will leave more comments because i want more comments. thanks for the thougth, shye!

Thanks trina :-)

I've read a bit about professional blogging. even bloggers that have up over 1,000 readers a day have trouble getting people to comment.

for the most part you have to say something outrageous to get people to respond. I read a lot of blogs where the post is nice, cool, whatever. but that is it. it is nice and there is really nothing that I would want to add.

you really have to write something that is heavy duty to get people to respond, and even then they might not have the time or are already off to another blog.

plus, we like to be voyeurs I suppose. it is easy to drop in, check things out and move along.

maybe your next question should be "Is it proper to leave blog comments that are longer than 4 paragraphs?"

Sorry.

zane ,,, that is PERFECT ! love it
:-) -- thanks - you ROCK !! that is all soo VERY true . you could have even done 6 par and i wouldn't a minded .

becki said...

All of the above depending on the day. I do have a lot more time at the moment so I am gonna comment lots more. Who doesn't love getting a comment right?

Marily said...

Hmmmm, since I don't really know what to say I almost didn't comment. :)
What letter was that one?

But yes, I am totally with you--comments are great but I don't always leave them....

John, Lisa and family said...

What a great way to get comments! :-) Most of the time, if I can relate in some way to the subject, or have something to say AT THAT MOMENT... I'll leave a comment. I guess in reality, I assume some of my comments might sound silly or dumb, so I don't leave one. Has nothing to do with what someone posts that day...just how I think my comment would sound in cyberspace.

simplyshye said...

Lisa - you wayyy to cute :-) - i think your comments in space would sounds superba !!!

simplyshye said...

Burgess said...

I think of something to say and then half the time I delete it because I think I sound stupid. It's funny that we think that about ourselves, but then we don't think any comments are dumb, we like them all!

I was just about to do it again with this comment. I'll just let it ride this time :)

simplyshye said...

thanks burgess !!! I'm sure we have ALL done that a time or twooooo or three :-)
I'm so glad you didn't delete this time and for that matter you don't have to delete ANY on MINE from here on OUT !
Love the RED flower in your hair - BTW - and you are SOOO GREAT with your class !! They are all so cute
loves and loves to YOU --shye

Hannah said...

I love comments too, but sometimes I feel like I don't want to be the only one to comment, or there are so many comments maybe mine doesn't matter, just writing it out makes these reasons seem like silly excuses!! thanks for pointing out our need to share the love!!

Jan said...

Hmmmm...Well, ummmm..... Hmmmm....Maybe some of us wonder if our comments matter???? Plus, sometimes I feel sooooo old compared to all you younger ladies????? My heart and spirit feel young though! It's just the rest of me that has this problem - of not feeling so young anymore. And, Shye, when I heard that you asked Brian M. out to the prom and decorated his bedroom back when you were in high school - well.... that really made me feel old! Brian's two younger brothers, Darryl and Rusty, practically LIVED at our house when my boys were all home and in high school! And Darryl married my niece Karen... And Rusty was my son Chris' best man at his wedding... And....well...it all just really surprised me!! Just so you know - I found all that out on Facebook when I saw that you were friends with their Mom and I asked her how she came to know you. It's such a very small world sometimes!

simplyshye said...

Hannah -- you always share "love" -- so no worries :-)

simplyshye said...

Jan - WOWOWOW !! small world INDEED - crazy ! Yes - I think i asked brian to christmas formal - it was just a few years back (wink-wink) - then Yes - i did talk to his mom on fb ... they were always soooo very kind to me .

AND BTW - your NOT old !! Your just have many more talents than we all do -- it's AMAZing to me how you can do your scrapbook stuff on the umpter -- i love to look at it :-)
Thanks for always sharing them !
