if you don’t know dooce, you need to meet her. she’s a blog sensation -she’s been on TV forcrissakes. there are many female bloggers out there, many who in their spare time have developed loyal readers – for ex my favorite – belgianwaffle; and there’s evany with her daily outfits, and desert candy and orangette who blog so wonderfully about food, and dustpan alley in my neck of the woods, with her chickens and her crafty projects.
then there are all the bloggers for whom blogging has become a wonderful (enviable – sooooo enviable) job – they blog on a variety of sites, or have multiple sections in their blogs, they get some cash for it, as they should, for all the hours of entertainment they provide. it makes them no less compelling to read, but on the response side of things, let’s just say it’s a bit thin. i am sure it’s not that they don’t care, and would never suggest any of my comments were ever worth a response, and they do get about a million comments a day. so it is understandable that they no longer get so excited when there’s a comment on their blog, like i do. and i usually respond asap (altho it took me a while to realize that could respond directly to the commenter, instead of responding on my own blog, which left me wondering if that person ever came back to check that i answered, and if not, do they think i am rude and ungrateful?)
annnyway. all this to say dooce does not respond to your comments. let me rephrase: dooce has not responded to mine. i even sent her an email once, she had a question about a 1950’s soft drink, which i tried to elucidate. neither has sweetney. and i don’t know if bossy will ever respond or comment on my blog, but she made the most hilarious video of herself pining for a response from dooce. it’s funny, self-deprecating, not mean. in short hiiii-larious. enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaQG766uCQk
i heart dooce, but i may just heart bossy a tiny little bit more. i am biased by her great dane, who looks a lot like HRH. go on. compare bossy’s photstream of pics of her great dane with HRH, and you’ll understand [note to reader: somethin’s not right with wordpress or my pics and have not been able to load a gallery of HRH’s best shots. note to self: must get flicker]. check out the new flicker widget on the right to compare (omg i managed to do this with only 1 email to the wordpress helpdesk). i also love the post she has today – if you know me and refer to my cast of characters post, you’ll understand why. http://www.iambossy.com/i_am_bossy/2008/06/just-a-quick-no.html
and i am happy to report the caffeine, advil and claritin have done their job, my brain is snot free and eyes are clear. tax regulations of yore, here i come.
