Lots of words and bullets....

Oh me oh my it has been a BUSY day! I love those days though because I just dont know where the time goes! I have lots to discuss with you(Im talking to you)! I have questions, shout outs, anouncememnts and just a little blonde(I had a reader ask what color hair I had-Yes I know my picture is on my blog but I give her the benefit of the doubt with maybe being a  google reader user) randomness! So of course this will be a bullet style post(I know you arent surprised)-

 
  • Commenting- I am a commenter- I like to leave people comments because usually I always have something to say! I like when people leave comments on my blog so I like to think others like to recieve them. So here is my question-when people leave me comments and I want to reply whats the best way to do it? If you go to their blog then you look like a crazy leaving a random comment on one of their posts? I have tried Disqus I had WAY to many emails from people telling me they didnt like it, they didnt want to have to log-in or sign up for it. If I go in and leave a comment on my  own blog then the person wrote probably wont see my response! OH THE STRESS OF BLOG COMMENTING???? What do you do?? HELP ME PLEASE!!! (do you like all the drama in this little paragraph)!
  • While we are talking about commenting I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the people who commented on my Venting post. I really do appreciate it!
  • I am doing a feature blog type post-probably one every 2 weeks(I dont want to get to carried away with this)! I look at a ton of blogs so I just want to share them because I think its FUN! I like them I think you might so I am gonna share... If I feature you I will shoot you an email to make sure its ok and you will be featured to all of my 5s of readers!
  • I am getting an itch to go to New York City soon! I need to work this out because I love it there and I just need a visit! My bestie has family that lives there and her cousin Nathan totally cracks me up so I know if I show up there he will go on the Sex in the City tour with me! Which would probably be super fun because he always has something to say like I do!
                       
  • At this point in my life I only wear heels if I HAVE to(even then I COMPLAIN about it the WHOLE time I am wearing them)! Just because I dont like to wear them doesnt mean that I dont like to look at them! When me and Steph were in NYC looking for her wedding shoes I was totally loving it(We were having a little tift at the time so I couldnt act like I loved because you know I wasnt going to be the first to crack- thats what we do we dont speak for an hour and then we are fine- I think it scared her Mom for a minute but it was fine). WOW I got off from my point for aminute(shocker...huh?). Anyways I like to LOOK at heels and when I came across Pink Preppy Lilly Lovers Wordless Wednesday I couldnt stop looking at it! Love it!!
  • Look what I got in the mail today! I know what I am doing this weekend! When I am done I will give a run down!
                                                        
  • My last question- Do you Twitter mainly from your computer or from your phone???

You can reply via email to comments if they have it set up. So when you get this email in your inbox you can just hit reply and send me back a comment about my comment!

Allyson said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

If I want to comment on something someone asks, I either go to their blog and say "thanks for visiting my blog, I wanted to answer your question" or I see if they have an email listed and I will shoot them a quick email to answer their question.

If you need someone to go to NYC with you let me know!!! :) It is seriously my favorite place EVER and I am itching to go back again soon. Good thing a close friend is moving there in August and I will have an excuse to visit.

And I twitter mainly on my phone. I love twitter! :)

When people comment on my blog, I respond directly to them via email. But I use wordpress, which is easier to do that than using blogspot. At least that's what I remember. I would prefer that other's do the same, but I know that is unreasonable. And blogspot doesn't really allow that to happen - especially since there isn't often a name/email/website option that wordpress has. I almost never come back to a post after I have commented. Does that make me a bad commenter? I dunno.

And if I am at my computer, I use tweetdeck for twitter. If I am anywhere other than my computer, I tweet from my phone.

peace...

I think the best way to reply is in your own comment thread. If that person doesn't check back, that's on them! I am dying to hear how The Carrie Diaries is, so please give us a review! And finally, I too love looking at beautiful heels, but have a hard time wearing them for more than 10 minutes. :)

Shannon said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm totally in the dark ages, I don't Tweet or have a Facebook account. But, I do love how I've been able to connect with so many people through blogging. Regarding comments, I like to have comments sent to me via email so I can reply. The only downside is when a reader has a no-reply blogger account and I can't get in touch with them. Don't know if there really is a perfect solution. Like you though it makes my day to hear from my readers. Have a great evening! Oh and NYC, never been but it is definitely on my list of places to go very soon...and just saw Candace Bushnell on the view talking about this book yesterday. It's gonna be a good summer read!

Jenni said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm a pretty new blogger and I've had the same issue with responding back to people who leave questions! I'm interested to see what you do! :)

I'm in need of a new book, I can't wait for your run down!

The Girly Tomboy said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I just answer the question in my comments section - I figure if someone asks a question, they'll be back to look at the answer. I have asked questions in comments, and usually people answer - though not all the time.

Also, if you hate heels for comfort reasons, check out SOFFT shoes. They have some cute styles, and their lower heels are comfy enough to wear on a day of shopping. Even their higher styles are comfy! It's magic!

I reviewed one of the styles on my blog - that's how much I love them!

LOL, blog comment systems stress me out sometimes too!

Wendy @RunningonMTT said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hey Beth - to answer your first question, I just email the person directly - most have their email tied to their blogger account so I just hit reply to the comments that come through my email and say thanks for stopping by or answer a questions or just chime in with more randomness!!!

As you will see in your inbox I just did for you...thanks for stopping by my blog and I'm liking what I'm seeing so I going to follow!!!!!

I hope to browse some old posts soon but for me it's nighty night -I'm beat from all my TV watching last night!

Talk soon!

Trish said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hey cutie pie! Thanks so much for the mention! What can I say, I have a crazy little weakness for those pretty red soled shoes..sigh..if only my bank account would allow for many more!

You are so stinkin' cute, I LOVE all the drama in your first bullet :) I try to respond as best I can to all inquiries, comments, questions by replying via email. I hate when the other party doesn't have their email address linked, but no biggie, if that's the case I'll try and reply via their next blog post.

I want to go to NYC with you!! Guess what? Did you know in certain NYC salons, you can actually get a LOUBOUTIN mani/pedi??!! Seriously! Black nailpolish with RED TIPS underneath! Could you die? I think I need a Loub pedi just to say I did it!!

XOXOXO Mwah!

Marianne said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I reply to comments via email-- I get the email that someone commented and I click reply. The only thing that sucks is when you type out this long response that's so well thought out and then you realize it says "no-reply commenter"! UGH! But usually I just then go to that persons blog and look for an email, if I have time. Or I just delete it and say sorry. But I think that's the best way to do it!

Can I go to NYC with you? GAH, I LOVE THAT PLACE! I haven't been in 5 years but I look at my pictures daily (possibly because some hang on my wall HAHA) and dream about that little slice of heaven... ::sigh::

And yes, Brody Jenner & Avril is SO weird. I can't wrap my brain around it (I know that was a different post, but I didn't get a chance to say anything...)

Bridgette said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I email directly or respond back in the same comment field. And I tweet mainly from the computer, but sometimes the phone too. I just signed up for Hootsuite and I'm excited to give it a try!

Take care and thanks for dropping by my blog today! :)

Lacey said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I think I can speak for all when I say blogger really needs to update their commenting system.

After reading through all the comments on this post, I'm realizing that everyone is trying to do the same thing I do - which is hit reply on comment notification emails. Some bloggers have an email set up and some are no-reply commenters. I think I have an email set up. Not sure.

I LOVE NEW YORK CITY too! I've been three times and I can't wait to return. Last time I went with my dad and he actually went with me on the Sex & the City tour....haha! What a trooper, huh?! It was great! I hope you go soon and I get to see NYC again vicariously through your post full of pictures. :)

Hey there, thanks for the comment on my WW post. I couldn't help myself but to come over here and check out your blog. I love blog surfing and I think you have a great blog.
To answer your questions. Actually if someone comments on my blog I always go to their blog and read their most recent post and comment and also thank them for commenting on mine. Although after just reading this post I will definitely be back.
I love that you do a feature blog, I have always wanted to do that. Maybe you have inspired me to actually do it. :)
I would so love to go to New York and one day I swear I will!!!
Oh and I hate heels too, but I buy them and wear them to work. But I do wear flip flops in the car to and from work. :)
And I do twitter, but I do both the computer and BB.
You have a great blog here and I so love your little Zoe!!!

Comment on their blog, it's the concept of blogging "sometimes captcha & word verification are a pain"

So, Otherwise it would just be called emailing or commenting yourself.

So glad you stopped in my site and I following you now.

You know I always wondered the same thing about answering people on my blogs and I have seen quiet a few people that do a blog just about answering peoples questions. If it just a sweet comment then I will go to their blog and say thanks in a comment on theirs. I have thought about doing an answer blog but honestly don't get too many questions mostly sweetness and I love all the sweetness.
I love reading your blog and it nevers fails to keep me intrigued! I think a feature is a great idea have mentioned other blogs in my blog from time to time. I just figure people don't mind but never thought to give them a shout out in email..eeeks sorry!!
Have a fabulous week and I can not wait to hear about NYC!! I have always wanted to go but never been in the area myself.

Pammy pam said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

thanks for showing me some bloggy love. i love your pooch!

i try to visit the people who have taken the time to post on my blog (to answer your question)

Allison said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hi, can we be really good friends and go to NYC together! I was just day dreaming and making my list of places I want to visit when I go there someday!

Gen said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I twitter from my phone.

i love leaving comments! i reply on my blog, but if there is an email addy, i use it! :)

rebekka said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

No clue how I found your blog this morning...totally random...but wanted to say hello because I'm in Nashville too. So, Hi!!!! Cute blog...will read more :)

-Rebekka

Ashley said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I think we were meant to be! Haha...I am just like you and say it like it is and love to talk and am very random.

I normally just respond on the comments that people leave, but like you said, they may never see them. So, for me you can e-mail me at ashleysmith_82@hotmail.com anytime!

We are going to NYC for a week after our wedding and I can't wait to shop and do the Sex and the City tour!!! I am sooo looking forward to it, R might not be so into it though...hahaha!

Love your vents, rants, crazy, random posts and what have you. You are terrific!

MJ FIRST Wild Card Assistant Director said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I only tweet from my computer. *grin*

My personal policy is to reply on my blog. I use wordpress (now! and newly) and just can hit reply and there it is. But if it is something really conversation worthy I will email them. Yet maybe I'm just weird, but in addition to commenting back on my blog via reply. I try to always go to their blog and visit. See what's up. Hence, my current presence. *wink*

Thank you for coming by!!

Whitney said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love wearing heels and looking at heels.... anything to do with heels! GAAH! I turn into a big pile of mush.

Laura said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I was wondering the same thing about commenting back. I have been just leaving a comment back on their most recent blog posts. But it does seem kinda of awkward because what Im responding to has nothing to do with their blog post. If you figure out a better system let me know!!

I have never been to NYC. I would love to go sometime!

Can't wait to see the post on the Carrie Diaries book! I may have to buy that one myself.

cherimarie2 said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I would like to say that I feel the same way about heels! They are so cute, fun to look at, yet I don't wear them much and when I do I complain! I love your blog, it's too much fun so I became a follower :)

Jessica said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hey! Whenever someone comments on my blog I answer their question/send a comment back on their most recent post that way they will see it. Because like you said I doubt they come back to yours to see if you responded!

I love NYC! I havent been there since my teenage years and am dying to go back! What is this Sex and the City tour you are talking about>? That is only my all time FAV movie! (I have a countdown until the second one comes out)

Let me know what you think of the book-my friend ordered it for me for my birthday so I should get it soon! I am so excited!!!! :)

Have a great Thursday--one more day and it will be Friday!!!

Erin said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

When Blogger emails me their comment I just hit reply and send them a response via email. That is, if they have their email in their profile. Otherwise it doesn't work, but I think most people do.
I only twitter from the computer, my phone isn't capable, but I don't Tweet that much anyway. Maybe every other day.

Lauren said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Your posts always make me smile, because you say so many of the things I think about every.single.day! Don't you just love randomness... And I am jealous of your trip to NYC! I was JUST there last week, but only for a few hours.

mindy m. said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hmmm. I should probably answer questions on my comments through email. Huh, I have been doing it all wrong I bet. Most people prob. do not come back to get their answers. ugh.

From now on, it is email!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting yesterday! Nice to "meet" you here today!

Mindy
