  1. Great post and some sad, but oh-so-true facts. But after reading this I have decided that from now on I shall post in my underwear and Ray Bans so I’ll be prepared for any occasion. πŸ˜‰

    I can honestly say that no other reader takes my posts so much to heart as you, sweet pea. And can I get a picture of that? πŸ˜†

  2. A great list compiled by a seasoned blogger. *applause*

    When you say, “feel free to add” or “what do you think?” isn’t that pimping for comments? πŸ˜‰

    Oh thanks for the applause, Windy – you’re too kind. πŸ™‚

    I don’t think that is pimping for comments – it’s just a normal part of my speak, after I’ve said what I think, I like to hear what others think. Of course, if they think nothing, then they won’t say anything, right? But, if I said, ‘please, please, make a comment’ I think that would count though. πŸ˜‰

  3. #6 aint that the truth! Someone found my blog by googling blog with sour cream – yes indeedy, I AM the sour cream blog of choice.

    Once again, you’re the exception to the rule, Free. Seriously, someone found you googling blog with sour cream? Oy! 😯

  4. Are you actually telling me that some people actually wear clothes when they blog? That is just plain wrong. You have dashed my dreams.

    I think actually, that clothing is optional. πŸ™‚

  7. 9 and 10, sooo frustratingly true. And I have a number 22: if you want to get one of those stats spikes, put the word ‘sex’ in the title of a post. Don’t expect to keep those visitors tho, unless you are prepared to stick with raunch.
    Ewww, sticky.

    Hi Hilary,
    Oh…why didn’t you put in your url? I want to visit your blog again.

    You’re so right about key words in the title. I did an experiment of this type just to see if I was right – however, I used the phrase ‘stupid shit’ – Well, to this day it is one of my all time highest’s – Just to make sure, I did a sequel to the post called Stupid Shit Part Deaux and yup – another stat getter. I’m seriously considering just writing stupid shit posts and numbering them sequentially. It just goes to show you that when you have the right key words, you get a lot of traffic. πŸ˜†

  8. I’m not as seasoned as you. Although I have had 3 different blog addy’s (BAHAHAHAH!) Does that count for anything? heeee-heeeee-heeeeee!

    This is fabulous and I cannot think of anything you didn’t cover, as usual…. jeez, couldn’t ya just leave a little something out for me? So, I could comment? Now watch, you will and I still wont get it- I took the short bus 😦

    Sorry Sweets, I was sure I’d left something out – I’m sure someone will think of it, too. πŸ˜‰

  9. Hi WC,

    Almost everything I post is controversial, but I never get flamers, and few comments in general. I begin to suspect that no one reads them, and all of my traffic is to going to the posts with nude women pictures. It’s also interesting that those posts often get top 10 Google ranks, while my photographic mocking of politics takes a great deal of patience to find. Perhaps mocking naked women is the way to go πŸ™‚

    the Grit

    Hey Grit,
    You may be onto something there. Although, I don’t know why your terrorist boy and where’s obama pics don’t make the top of the list. They are hilarious.

  10. Yes, I do believe you’ve covered it all. Well done, WC.

    If it were my own personal list of blogging truisms #21 would have to read “…once you’re hooked your real life is non-existent because your cyber life takes over”.

    Boy, ain’t that the truth 2LD? LOL.

  11. You covered all the bases, I do believe. Fine job doing it, too!
    I enjoy blogging in my skivvies .. and after changing themes about 64 times, I think I’ve settled on one … Maybe.

    One set of skivvies or theme? πŸ˜† Seriously though, I know what you mean about the themes, I’ve yet to find one I am totally happy with myself.

  12. I usually blog in one of my old thin much washed old friend t shirts.. I have now been blogging 6 months..and yes you do get hooked and I am amazed at just how much we can care and be concerned about those we don’t really know.. On the other hand, maybe we do know them, perhaps even better than those we think we know..you can learn a lot about someone on these addictive blogs.

    I can’t think of anything to add to your list .Just a big ole shout out to tell you once again..I am so glad I found you.. Sending big ole hugs to a favorite ‘seasoned blogger’.

    So, you’ve got an official blogging ensemble? That is really addictive, Ange. πŸ˜‰

    I think you’re right about knowing other bloggers – some blogs are so personal that you can’t help but know these folks. Funny, how we can seem to say on the Internet what we may be squeamish about saying in real life. Gives one pause.

    I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging for six months, you’ve taken to it like fish to water, butter to bread. You’re one outstanding blogger yourself, my girl. πŸ™‚

  13. Nobody has attempted to copy my blog, so far as I know, though a few individual items have been cut and pasted elsewhere.

    Then again, I am one of the few people who dares to put up a beige-on-beige color scheme.

    LOL CG,
    Maybe that’s the secret. πŸ™‚

  14. Damn, it’s all true! And no matter how witty I think I am, I only have a dozen readers. Damn.

    Great post, as per usual my dear.

    Oh I”m sure there are more than 12 – although, I only have about 14…;) How have you been?

  15. Great post…and funny. Here’s another truism for you: “No matter how benign your post, it will almost certainly piss someone off.”

    Now, that made me laugh out loud, truly. And man you couldn’t be more right. I snuck over to your place and have to say, I like your attitude. Welcome – y’all come back now, y’hear?

  16. I’m sneaking back out from under my rock to take another look around. Glad I did, cause this just made my day! LOL Another truism, well true for me anyhow….just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, RL breaks down the locked door and drags me kicking and screaming away from cyberland. Getting back is a bitch too.

    Take care Annie. Wish i had time to comment on all your “new” posts, but I have a few more spots to visit before I get sucked back into that hole again. πŸ˜‰ Looking good as always though Hon!

    hugs
    Jennifer

    You, under a rock??? No way. LOL – the addiction runs deep – I pity the poor spouses who aren’t in on it. Good to see you again – I know your time is precious, so thanks for coming by. Next time maybe you can stay later.
    Hugs,

  17. Brilliant! Especially number 9! I did a wedding meme and I was so chuffed with it but I swear it sank like a stone, like it’s not even in the public domain!

    Ah well.

    I know what you mean about number 9 – chaps your hide, don’t it? There is just no figuring it out. πŸ™‚

  19. I’d have to agree with everyone else – that was simply brilliant! I haven’t been doing this very long, but already I’m scratching my head at some of those truisms.

    My favourites: 6,9,10,17
    And of course, 21 – I think I’m hooked! πŸ™‚

    Thank you so much for letting me know everything I’m going through is oh-so-normal!

    Hey Daisy,
    You’re welcome, but I’m pretty sure these were universal truths, that I just happened to write down. Is it possible I was the first? LOL – now, that would be something. I have to admit, 6,9,10 & 17 are my personal favs too. Ain’t bloggin’ a beotch? πŸ™‚ Welcome to the world of obsessive outflow.
