Bloggy Reading
How do you decide what blogs to read? Are there certain blogs you read every day? Do you read a blog because it inspires you? Makes you laugh? Informs you on a particular subject? Are there any blogs that you lurk on? Ones that you're not quite comfortable with leaving a comment? Or is that just me?? Enquiring minds want to know...

I lurk on about 10. Other than that, I try to visit everyone who visits me. Sometimes I can only do it once a week so set aside a block of time to respond to comments.

There have only been a few I've been uncomfortable with enough not to comment. And those folks have never been back to visit!

P.S. Haddie's Mary Jane's? Well, I got them at Target, of course. :-)

i lurk around a little. visit the same ones a little. I like funny ones or ones with parties.
I feel shy if there's an emotional post

I like frogs

I'm not really a lurker but I'm not a good commenter. I'm trying to comment more often so I don't come across as a snob! But I do have a list that I try to read most days....I'm sure some see it as a waste of time, but better than a drikning problem, right?

I try to comment on every blog I read, just not on every post I read. You know? I don't really lurk anywhere... I always comment sooner or later. Some are for inspiration, but most are just ones I happened upon and kept up with.

In the summer holidays, I'm all over the place, as in random. I have my favourites book marked and usually manage to drop by every day as some random point, quite often v late or v early.
I don't always comment [depends upon brain capacity] but I do try.
I used to lurk a lot, but I'm getting braver.
Cheers

Meliissa, you soo need to get Google reader! It saves so much time. Whenever someone posts something it shows up on your homepage (sometimes it takes a few hours), you don't even have to go to their blog unless you want to comment! If I find one I like, usually someone who I can realte to or is funny/friendly, I just add it to reader!

Jessica introduced me to the reader and it saved my life... it's amazing.

I have been working on my blog since June but have only really ventured out looking at others in the last few weeks. (I only personally know 2 people who have blogs) I was really worried about the whole anonymity thing and maybe I'm naive, but I don't worry anymore. I like blogs where I'm comfortable with the things they are saying and/or they make me smile and I now have a list I visit often.

I never lurk because I crave comments too much. Generally, I'm looking for a two way street when it comes to blogging. It's a hugely social thing for me. But there are some I'd visit regardless. You know...like you. =)

i read a lot. i lurk a lot. i'll admit, i've lurked on yours often. don't know why exactly. there's just a lot that i don't comment to and for some reason, your blog was lumped in that group. i will say that i enjoy reading your posts.

this particular post has convicted me to leave a comment this time. and i'll try to be better at leaving comments from now on. i know, my bad ;(
