I'm so not a professional blogger

I am by no means a professional blogger. I sort of stumbled into blogging by accident. In all honesty, I’m quite impressed that I have made it five months with this blog. I’m quite famous for having a million new hobbies and grandiose ideas that either never come to fruition, or fizzle after weeks of holding my interest. I think I am on to something with this whole blog-hobby.

In case you don’t know, there are blogging rules of etiquette. I don’t do well with normal etiquette rules, so the odds are not in my favor. In fact, I pretty much know I’d screw it up and earn a LARGE SCARLET LETTER S on my forehead if I attempted to engage in professional blog activities.

However, one thing I am a sucker for is comments. It makes my day when people leave comments on my blog. It makes it a little less lonely here at I Used to be Witty and makes me feel slightly less like I am just entertaining the voices in my head. Okay, I don’t have voices in my head, but you get the point. So, with all of that being cleared up, I am going to play on SITS. Readers, go check them out for some great blog links. Bloggers, go check them out to get linked up!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with entertaining the voices in your head. Wait, right? If it's wrong, please don't tell me.

Also, you're entertaining the voices in my head, so thank you.

Christy said...

I see nothing wrong with entertaining voices in your head, either. I do it daily. I have enjoyed your blog, since I found it a week ago. On an another note, I was sorry to hear about your birthday. I have those birthdays every year. I am looking forward to all your new posts. So, keep entertaining those voices, then tell us all about it. :-)

Caitlin said...

The voices in your head have some pretty good ideas. ^_^ And if it's any consolation, I think you're witty.

The SITS thing is great! I got 36 comments yesterday with their crazy blogathon -- and I saw some really cool blogs along the way...the blogroll keeps getting longer and longer!

I also stumbled across a great little blog called Best Post of the Week, where you can send in your best post each week and then go and check out the others. I have a little button link on my blog -- it is green -- if you want to check it out. I'll try and find the link and paste it here too--http://bestpostsoftheweek.blogspot.com/

SITS seems to be a good way to get commenting readers to your blog!

I love comments too, probably one of the reasons I leave so many.

So today my comment is, "You're a GREAT blogger!"

Jennifer said...

hey, just found your blog--loving it!

I read your blog everyday and love it! I don't have kids, so I can't truly relate, but I completely understand. Oh, and thanks for the SITS link. I had never heard of it before. I'm trying to get a following for my blogs, so that site was very helpful to me. Thanks!

Isabella said...

I found your blog a little while ago through someone else's blog roll. So, I'm sending you some comment appreciation.

Found you through the SITS thing. And I'm with you...I never thought I would still be blogging after four months of this (wow! four months already). Hope you enjoy your comment love today!

Debbie said...

There is blogging etiquette? Dang!
Like you, I've probably stepped over a boundry somewhere.

Sturgmom said...

You mean no one else can hear my voices?!?!

Merry SITS-mas! Your little Kate is a cutie!!

Annie said...

I think you're witty! :) I visited every blog yesterday and stayed up late to get them all, only to find you added to the list this morning! Sorry I missed you yesterday. Merry SITSmas to you!

I found your blog somehow and it's very entertaining-I hear you on the wanting comments-which is why I'm leaving you one!

ciara said...

Gaspegirl said...

Welcome to SITS... you are sure to get lots of comments now ;)

Make it a great day!

Julie said...

I luv comments too. They make me feel popular :) hehe Merry SITSmas

Josie said...

I hear you on comments~ all the hits in the world don't matter much if people aren't commenting. When I get one it makes me smile and think "wow- people are actually READING what I'm writing and not just clicking through?" Its like seeing how many people favorite you in your statistics. You mean, people really LIKE me?!?! grade school rejection hangs strong doesn't it?!

Rachel Ann said...

Merry SITSmas! Have a very, happy December!

Denise said...

I also start a zillion different things and then drop them but blogging seems to be sticking for me. Something about providing material for voyeurs... don't know. Looks like you're sticking with it too. Merry Belated SITSmas!

The Rambler said...

Your gonna love SITS, it will feed the comment cravings we all have!

On a side note, have you made friends with those voices in your head, you might get great material for a future post :)

k_sra said...

Yes, I too will do almost anything for comments. Congrats on your Lemonade Award win. To be fair, I never told you you won! : )

Keep up the great blogging.

a new reader,

Valerie said...

I love comments too. I loved it when I found SITS. It's good to know that someone besides yourself is actually reading what you are blogging about. Wanted to wish you a Merry SITSmas!

Janah @ So Not Mom-a-licious said...

Playing catch up from yesterdays link post! Have a Merry SITSmas!

Vickie said...

Your little girl is such a cutie!

Merry SITSmas!

Tiffany said...

Comments make the blog world go round!

Which is why we created SITS in the first place.

Merry SITSmas.

Heather said...

Welcome to the SITStahood! :D

It's a great place for comment junkies (um, like me!) and the folks that belong to the 'hood are all amazing and awesome!

Cheers!

Marshmallow Circus said...

I have many voices in my head. They are rather naughty though and I turn them into my romance book characters. lol

Dick the Prick said...

I've got Barry Mannilow in my head - can I get a refund? Uuurrgghh.

WV: misbush?

None of my business really.

Just say Julie said...

SITS is fabulous! Merry SITSmas a day late... I'm still working my way through!

Miss. said...

Love your blog!

Packsaddle said...

Hope this comment makes your day.

If not, read it again tomorrow.

Nessa said...

Stopping by via SITS. I really like your blog!

Those voices in your head need to be entertained! WE all have them, don't we? ;-)

Nicki and Mathis said...

Hi SITSta! Love your blog!

Katy said...

Love this post! Darling.

p.s. I have to entertain the voices in my head as well. Aslo, I'm in the same boat w/ you......I also use to be witty. I think I still might be a little bit, but I use to be MORE witty than I am now.

Corine said...

I am new to SITS also.. my blog is as old as my newborn colicky lil princess.... 3 months.

Its so funny you say you are known for comming up with new hobbies etc... and them fizzling out. I am the SAME WAY. I cant imagine how flaky people think I am, cause I know how flaked out I feel when hopping from new idea to better new idea. lol :)

Cassoulet Cafe said...

Coming over from SITS to say "hey" :)

dddiva said...

Hehe really enjoying your blog- and since I am also *ahem* ever expanding my repertoire of hobbies I think I need to add you to my blog list. :D So glad SITS has you as a saucy blog and I found you.
