~my thoughts about life~

Happy Leap Day!  Today is Wednesday so I am linking up with Mamarazzi for We Want to Know!  Feel free to join in!

{1} What are your Top 3 blogging tips for other bloggers?
- Comment on other people's blogs.  It brings a smile to my face every time I receive a new comment.  :)  If I've been reading someone's blog for two years and they've never left a comment on my blog, I feel like they don't care about me. 
- Don't complain too much.  A little complaining is fine...it makes you seem normal.  But when every single post on someone's blog is a complaint, it gets old.  I've unsubscribed from a few blogs because they were constant downers.

 - Use pictures!  Nothing spruces up a post more than a picture!  Even if it has nothing to do with your topic, it still makes your page look lovely!  When I don't have time to take my own photo and upload it, I'll at least try to get a generic image from Google.  Posts that are nothing but words with no formatting get pretty boring. 

{2} What book have you read lately that you would recommend?
Well, I've started two lately but neither is anything to write home about.  The last good book I read was "Minding Frankie" by Maeve Binchy.  I have "The Help" sitting on my coffee table, waiting to be started.  Oh, how I wish I had it in Kindle edition!  I hear it's fabulous!  I'll get to it when life slows down a bit.

This is me.  I have so few pics of me.
{3} What is a physical feature you have been complimented on?
My husband likes my eyes and freckles but random strangers rarely comment about them.  From people I don't know, I usually hear comments about my hair.  That's funny because my hair is such a chore for me!  It's really nice when someone notices it!

{4} What color is your toothbrush?
Blue, I think?  For some reason, Hubby's is pink and I always grab it by mistake.  I just buy tons of random colors and the first one I pick up and open is the one I use.  Yeah, it's blue; I'm sure now.  (I must keep my toothbrush separate from my children's toothbrushes because Baby Girl likes to grab random ones to use.  That grosses me out.)

{5} What question would you like to add to a future WWTK?
How do you juggle it all?  How many different "hats" do you wear and how to you accomplish all you have to do?

Lately, I have more "hats" than heads and I'm having a difficult time keeping track of everything.  You have probably noticed my blog has been suffering because of it.  I love writing on my blog, but sometimes I must neglect it when I have too many other things going on.  Family, church, home, and school come first.  Blogging, television, and pleasure reading come last, if there is time left.

You have a great smile! It's a good pic:)
I love to complain. That's part of life, a good vent here and there. But a balance of it is good. Not all the time.

Great tips. I totally agree with you. I just cannot post something just to post a post. I have to feel it. I also get so tired of following a blog forever, since the beginning of time and it's as if I don't even exist. Well, I have stopped following serveral of them lately! So there! Photos are definitely the ticket. Thanks

You really should read The Help. It's really lovely. I loved it!

O I don't know how other women get around to everything. When I see pictures of these perfect looking homes and then they home school their kids .... I'm astounded!

I'm guilty of constantly complaining!! lol

And, you are going to LOVE The Help!!! The book and movie were both awesome....can't say that a whole lot!

I complain but I refer to it as "turning the vent". I know it doesn't make it any better but maybe I should back off a bit.

good to hear that someone else neglects their blog. i have been so guilty of that. but you're right, some things are just more important... i loved The Help. i bet you will, too!

amazing question! i'm using this one next week. i wear alot of hats.

i'm also not a fan of downers. i hide people on fb who only complain. sure life is hard but there is always a brightside.

Stopping by from Mamarazzi!

Pictures are lots of fun to see on blogs!

Have a great week!

Myya said...

Great tips! Pictures totally help make a post don't they!

I think freckles are pretty. You do have great hair!

I buy a big pack of toothbrushes too. I change them really often so I like having them on hand. I also make sure I buy the girls ones that are totally different then mine so that there is NEVER confusion. LOL

uggghhh the juggling of the hats. I am there way too often. If I go missing for over a week in blogland I am "juggling".

the help is a good one, once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down.
