A Question For You...

So I was going to post day #2 of pictures last night when I got home, but I didn't end up getting around to it because I fell asleep.

Yes that's right, I slept from 7pm yesterday evening till 730am this morning... and I can still fall back asleep right now! I'm not being lazy or anything I'm just not feeling well. I think I have the sniffles and it's making my head foggy.

Ok enough about my snotty head, I have a couple of blog questions for you bloggers out there.

1. Do you follow everyone who follows you?
2. Do you read every person you follow?
3. Do you comment on everyone you follow or just the people who comment on yours?
4. When you miss a few days of posts do you play catch up and read all the posts that you fell behind in or just the last post from that person?
5. Does it bother you when someone changes their background?

I try to follow everyone that follows me. I make an effort to read and comment on those that I follow. Every few days I go through my comments and comment on those that comment on my blog.

Who's on first?

Oh and I am not bothered by background changes.

1.Do you follow everyone who follows you?
No, but that’s because I’m never sitting still long enough to figure out how to do it. But, even if I did know how to follow, I probably wouldn’t follow anyone because I’d feel bad if I couldn’t always keep up….kind of like having an email lingering in your Inbox knowing you’ve got to reply sometime.

2. Do you read every person you follow?
See #1.

3. Do you comment on everyone you follow or just the people who comment on yours?
There are about 40 blogs I read (no joke) but I only comment if I have something worthwhile to contribute. Otherwise I feel like I’m trying to fill space. I look at it as kind of like sitting at a restaurant and overhearing a conversation at the table next to you….I don’t always say something to the person at the table, but the information is absorbed and stored and I move on.

4. When you miss a few days of posts do you play catch up and read all the posts that you fell behind in or just the last post from that person?
I read all the posts I’ve missed and catch up. My first visit is always to Smileygirl because her blog is where I came to know most of you anyway! Plus, she’s got that neat ticker on the side that stalks you guys and I know when you’ve all updated. Bonus plus, she’s my friend and an amazing soul.

5. Does it bother you when someone changes their background?
No. I love change. It’s good for the spirit. And, I change my background all the time!

The Panic Room said...

I have no ritual. I suck at this actually. I have extra time today so I sat down and decided to go thru everyone on my follow list to try and read all of them. So far it has been a good time. I have a handful of regular blogs I try and never miss. I'm not sure I have a good reason for why I chose this handful. It just happened.

This wasn't helpful to you at all. sorry.

Mista Jaycee said...

No I don't follow everyone who follows me but I read alot of people that follow by saving thier links.

I read everyone in groups. Not everyday because most folks don't post everyday.

I do hit the links of the commenters if I don't know them.

Mary Moore said...

Good questions!

1. I don't, but I eventually do. It just takes me a while sometimes.
2. I do.
3. I only comment when I have something to say. I don't care if they don't comment on mine, although I would probably smile more if I got more comments. :o)
4. Yes, I play catch-up, and then nothing else gets done, and the kids and hubby forget I exist...
5. Not at all. It just confuses me a bit, and I drool more as I try to figure it out.

Kellie said...

I felt like I could sleep all day on Monday. I think it's the time change too. One hour really smacks my chaps. :)
1. No
2. Most
3. I comment on most but not all
4. Just the last post usually, otherwise it would take FOREVER!
5. Not really.

I've had some requests to add links of other people's blogs onto my page but I don't do that unless I actually read them. I save it for my favorites. That would be like false advertising. But I always feel bad not doing it still...

SheBloggs said...

1. Do you follow everyone who follows you?
I do, I think if they take the time out to read my mindless crap then I should read theirs.. to a certain limit..

2. Do you read every person you follow?
Not everyone, I don't have that much time too usally.

3. Do you comment on everyone you follow or just the people who comment on yours?
People that commented on mine, but I reach out here and there if I can.

4. When you miss a few days of posts do you play catch up and read all the posts that you fell behind in or just the last post from that person?
Only catch up on all that I really read in debth & enjoy.

5. Does it bother you when someone changes their background?
I didn't think it did utill someone changed thiers that was really cool and everytime I visit, I feel something's missin? BUT change is good esp if it was crappy before!

SheBloggs said...

* Your gonna steal her again! lol She's rubbin off on you guys! Nah, she loves kickin with you, so I can totally understand. I need to plan a re-visit soon, I wanna do a weekend thing sometime in the summer. Go back so I can put my feet in a beach somewhere!

I wish I could laugh with you guys, I miss ur funny ass.

Gabby said...

1. No...I follow most of them though.
2. I might not read every single post, but there are handful of blogs I always read.
3. Again, not every post. I try.
4. Meh. I suck.
5. Only if it sucks.

For me, it's more about comments. If you leave me a comment, I will go to your blog and comment and I might even follow you. I'm a comment whore, I guess.

Desert Rat said...

1. Do you follow everyone who follows you?
1. NO because some of them are just following me for spammer reasons...I do the ones I know are actually real people.
2.I read every person YOU follow and the ones you set up on mine for me.
3.I comment when I feel like I have something to say or yes on people who comment on mine for sure. But I don't always make comments back on my comment page because I don't write or am cool enough to think people come back to see if I responded to their comment.(but yesterday I did)
4. On my favorites I do catch up because then I don't know what they are talking about...if they write more post in one day sometimes I don't realize until I'm thrown off that they wrote two posts in one day ;-)
5. it bothers my eyes because I have to adjust to knowing "Oh wait this IS bondon I'm reading.
Just got back from the beach. D said "did you take nina here because you should have this is a pretty and cool place" Dude he needs to be jocking me not his NINA - O. K.
YUA SISTA

Frogs in my formula said...

1. No
2. No, I like to sleep and eat sometimes
3. I only comment if I have something to say or I like the post.
4. depends on how much I stalk their blog
5. Only if it's red text on black and makes my eyes bug

Do I pass??

Underfunded Heiress said...

Umm...now I forget what you asked! Hahaha.

I always try to make an effort to comment back. I know it takes time and effort for ppl to comment on my blog so I appreciate it and always try to do my best.

In general, I don't comment just to do it. I have to like their blog. Although, so far, I haven't run into a problem where I didn't like their blog. Such talent out there!

I comment on everyone I follow because their blogs are my favorite. But not on every post, that would be way too time consuming.

I do read everyone I follow on a daily basis or at least every couple days. I will play catch up too and see what they have posted on the days I miss. I'm addicted!

No problem with changes of the background. I think its good to change it up-but not too often.

fhen said...

1. Do you follow everyone who follows you?
basically i'll absolutely linked them. the one i follow is not because they follow me

2. Do you read every person you follow?
yes i do

3. Do you comment on everyone you follow or just the people who comment on yours?
i comment on what i am following and those who comment on my site. i always try to spend time for commenting fellow bloggers :)

4. When you miss a few days of posts do you play catch up and read all the posts that you fell behind in or just the last post from that person?
can be both... it depends

5. Does it bother you when someone changes their background?
not really

Himbo said...

1. No (bad Himbo)
2. No (Himbo FAIL)
3. No, but I do comment on most.
4. I used to catch up but I am so behind right now that I haven't had a chance.
5. No, I like change. Change is good. Change is healthy.

Jeremy James said...

1. I've only a couple followers, so I ten to read 90% of their posts, unless I'm really busy and I fall behind.

2. I follow quite a few blogs so I don't read every single post, but there are a few ones that I read every post.

3. I tend to read more than comment.

4. I do play catch up, not every single one, but about 80% of them

5. Not really.

Desert Rat said...

SO Bondon, how have you been? uh huh; so what have you been doing since I left? Poor thing I heard you were sick? Awe so sad. so have you been anywhere? did anything special...just wondering? trying to keep in touch. You know. I've been dieing to go to the movies? but kind of scared to go here in Cabo? Howbotchu? movies lately? hmm?

Jillian said...

1. I think I follow about 90% of the people that follow me..

2. I try to...I have been slacking on my blogstalking..you know it can be like a FULL-TIME job...sheesh!!

3. Not necessarily...usually only when I am compelled to do so.

4. I will catch up on what I've missed..

5. Nope!

ReRe said...

1. I used to when i started blogging cus i thought it was the nice thing, but now i only follow if there blog is something that interests or amuses me. If it's about knitting -- i'm not following!

2. I at least skim to see what the day's topic is about.

3. I comment when i have a good comment! I will stop following a person if i comment regularly but they never show love back.

4. I like to play catch up.

5. I don't really notice backgrounds, so nah.

Penny said...

1. Do you follow everyone who follows you? Yes

2. Do you read every person you follow? Yes

3. Do you comment on everyone you follow or just the people who comment on yours? No,I comment on everyone,but not all the time,only when something hits a chord with me.

4. When you miss a few days of posts do you play catch up and read all the posts that you fell behind in or just the last post from that person? I don't go on the Internet during weekends,so on Monday I always play catch up,and read everything I've missed.

5. Does it bother you when someone changes their background? Not at all.I do it a lot.

moooooog35 said...

I would say '5.'

Is that right?

I kinda scanned through this post and didn't read it.

On a related note, I only follow those that don't have restraining orders out against me.

There aren't many.

Kellie said...

Oh no! In all honesty I haven't updated my blogroll in ages. I do follow you though! I'm going to update it right this second b/c you know I love me some Bon Don! :) You are one of my BBF's! Will you ever forgive my idiocity? (Is that even a word?)

repliderium.com said...

I try but sometimes you just have to turn off the computer and drink beer instead.
but I do try.....

Heather Rose said...

1. Unless 4 out of 5 of their posts make me sleepy.
2. No. :( Is that evil? I have at one time or another.
3. I comment when someone else hasn't already said what I was thinking, or I cant contain myself.
4. Catch up, but usually only comment on the most recent.
5. Depends. Sometimes I like it.

I like questions.^__^

PorkStar said...

totally agree on the sleep... a bit lazy now to answer so many questions... : )

John Finn said...

1. I visit the blog periodically, but only "follow" if something piques my interest.

2. I skim the "reading list" regularly, but don't read every post. There are a few blogs I visit regularly - most just now-and-then.

3. I don't comment much - just not very comfortable expressing an opinion in a public form.

4. Depends - for blogs I truly "follow," I read every post. In other cases, I'll read previous entries if there's something in a current post that makes me curious.

5. Not really, unless it's one of those "busy" backgrounds that makes it difficult to read.

La Pixie said...

no, I dont follow everyone who follows me.

I read every person that I follow, but sometimes Im DAYS (okay, a week) late.

I comment on every post that I feel the urge. if I dont feel like Im adding anything, I dont usually comment for the sake of commenting... unless that post only has one comment.

I HATE when people change their background, but I deal with it.

Laura said...

Great questions. I try to do it all :) I comment back on almost everyone who comments on my posts. I try to play catch up on my favorite blogs and it bothers me for a second when someone changes their background. My eyes adjust and then I like it. Are you thinking about changing your background?

Tha BossMack TopSoil said...

Maybe I should follow everyone that follows me?

elin said...

1. Do you follow everyone who follows you? No, but I do look at their blogs every so often if I am not a follower.
2. Do you read every person you follow? Almost, there is only one blog that I don't read everything on.
3. Do you comment on everyone you follow or just the people who comment on yours? I comment more on the people who comment on my blog.
4. When you miss a few days of posts do you play catch up and read all the posts that you fell behind in or just the last post from that person? I typically play catch up and read everything.
5. Does it bother you when someone changes their background? It doesn't bother me, I just have remember who I am reading about. I get used to a background and blog personality.

Ron said...

Yes to all!

#3- I comment on everyone I follow, but it depends on the topic. Some topics are better than others.

And background changes are cool!
Hope you feel better soon!

Hippoleetoe said...

The Loss Adjuster said...

Lordy, I am late to the party. Stupid job. Anyhoo,

1. Yes, but that's because I haven't been followed by anyone I hate yet.
2. Mostly yes. There's a few I only check in on from time to time, but most of them I read regularly.
3. I only comment on blogs I genuinely like (like yours!) or when I find the entry especially interesting.
4. I play catch up. This is why I have three episodes of 24 on my DVR.
5. Nope, so long as it looks nice. In fact, I was thinking of changing mine...

Bow Chica Wah Wah said...

1. Do you follow everyone who follows you?

No -- =(

2. Do you read every person you follow?

I try to but I don't always...

3. Do you comment on everyone you follow or just the people who comment on yours?

I comment when I feel like it. lmao

I have a handful of fav bloggers I read every post... others I skim thru.

5. Does it bother you when someone changes their background?
No not really. Change is good..
