A Guide to Commenting Etiquette

A Guide to Commenting Etiquette

One of the most difficult things to master in the blogging world seems to be commenting on other peoples’ blog posts*.

*This is probably just me, but hey, I needed a blog post subject …

I don’t know why, but it’s hard! Even replying to comments on your own posts is hard on some levels. But on other blogs? AAAAH HELP ME.

What do you say? Do you be funny or serious? Should you comment long or keep it short? Well, that’s up to you! There’s a lot of freedom in many areas. (Hint: be yourself.) However, I do have some basis guidelines that I adhere to while commenting – either on others’ blogs or while replying to my own posts. And … today I’m sharing them with you!

Why I Do Halloween

Why I Do Halloween

*deep breath* Okay. Here we go.

I know I’m going to offend a lot of my Christian friends. I might even lose some followers over it. But I feel a need to summarize all my thoughts on the subject into one, organized whole and present it up to my Christian peers (probably to be slaughtered, but oh well).

Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking on Halloween. Why do I dress up and eat candy, even though many Christians say it’s evil? I decided to dig deep and figure out my reasons.

The Back to School Tag (+Free Ebook!)

The Back to School Tag

Hi, everyone! Today we’re doing something a little different … a blog tag!

I know, I know … I’ve done blog tags before. But this one is Mine Own Blog Tag. Which makes it different. *nods*

As you can see, I’m still fooling around with HTML, and so things look a little strange up in harrr. *fails to do an Grumpy Old Miner impression* But it shall improve!

I mean, anyone can create a blog tag, right? It’s not just a privilege for super special people. It’s a free country (er, blogiverse). So … here goes.

I Am Sixteen (Goin’ On Seventeen)

I Am Sixteen

Last year I did a post on my birthday which was mostly excited and random and unintelligible. I did some blog tags and then spouted a bunch of random ‘facts.’

However, there was also a ranty section at the bottom where I discussed how my birthday was going awry, how depressed I was, etc. And yes, it didn’t turn out like I’d planned, which was really sad.

However, I’ve decided not to be so pouty (spellcheck says that’s not a word …) about my birthday this year.

This year, the DMV has decided to delay me getting my license until September 6th because it’s “busy.” (And yes, it probably actually is, but I’m pretending that the DMV is doing this on purpose just to break my heart.) And my dog is dying*.

*Which is true, but totally unrelated to my birthday.
