Ultimatum

I've been on a random streak lately and I'm going to talk about something that I haven't had the guts to before.  I just remembered a post called So... we're cool?, by my friend Stefani Jorgensen.  In it she talked about the awkwardness when two people have a great blogging relationship but when it's a face to face conversation, it's like you don't even know the person.  After remembering this hilarious post I thought of almost the opposite.  What about the people that you have on your friend list but don't even have a blogging relationship with you? For a while now I've commented on my "friends" blogs who don't even bother to check mine out or leave me a comment.  Lately I've even been skipping them over on my daily check, yes I'm that pathetic where I'll check everyday... sometimes more.  I'm sick of the one way relationship.  Now if you are one of those "friends" who look but don't write, you know I'm talking to you, or those "friends" who don't even look, You have one week to comment!  After that you're off my friend list.  I know that it's a harsh ultimatum but I need a commitment here!  I know there are posts that are more for family, and you don't have to comment on stuff like that but come on!   Do you comment at all?  I know there are bloggers that aren't drowning in the blogging world yet and will comment once in a while, so I'll give you guys a break.  Last but not least, for my stalker friends, don't worry, I'm not making you come out of your closet, I'm one of you.  If you would like to comment I'd love to hear it, but if you don't, no worries, because at least you are not on my "friend" list.  
That is all!

OK Noelle, I'm probably totally a stalker :) and one of those that comment sometimes that you don't really care one way or the other about hearing from... But I have to tell you how glad I am that you and other cute young friends blog. It's awful to love and care about people then have them drop out of your life and not be able to see them very often. It's a joy to keep up on what's happening with you, Kurt and the kids, and your wonderful mom and sisters too. And Kailua and Lanikai Beaches. <3 Thanks. :)
(p.s. I still have a couple of Drew and Kayla's finger prints under my glass dining table and I laugh every time I see them!) :)

I totally know what your friend met, I just went to read it and then I started reading some other people's comments, I'm a blog stalker, I go and read my friend's friend's blog...but what do you do if you happen to see them in real life...do you say "Hey I blog stalk your blog?" or what? Also I know what you mean about commenting on other people's blogs and they don't even acknowledge that you wrote at all...I'm glad we have a good blogging relationship. We all good G. ;D

Your so funny! I am a big time stalker. If I only have a minute I will pull up the blogs at glance at them. I love seeing your blogs. You make me so jealous with all of the beach photos. That was a great post! Way to get lots of comments!! We miss you.

I LOVE this post! I need to write this ultimatum to my family. I have been getting so bugged because outside of Jeff (Taylor's best friend- so he counts for Taylor not me) the only people who comment live in TVA. What is up with that? I started this for family and I have no idea if family ever even looks at it.
You know I'm a frequent comment maker cause just like you, I'm obsessed. I try to check everyones every other day or so. If I have any time, or if I'm nursing... I go straight to my computer and start blogging. I LOVE IT!

The Chaparro Family said...

Haha, that's funny. I should write that on my blog also because I can see that a lot of people go to my blog, but nobody ever leaves me any comments! But you do occasionally and I thank you for that! I've been trying to do better writing on other peoples blogs...I hope I get to stay on your friend list! I saw you got a phil and ted's stroller, don't you love it?

Jones Family said...

I am for sure guilty, I will repent and do better about commenting, can we stay friends??:)

Williams Family said...

See I am one of the bad ones... I still dont know how to use this blog thing and so I dont know how to pull up other people pages, I dont even know what mines looks like, so I stumble across everyone elses. Give me some tips, and dont delete me! I am trying! lol

lyle & julia said...

you are too funny!! I have actually been trying to cut back on blogger...i waste way too much time on here ;) i tell myself it is because I care so much about the rest of the world...lyle says it is because i am niele ;)

Keiko said...

You are SO funny, and I laughed some more reading the comments. I'm usually like you, check everyone's blog daily except . . . I didn't check or update mine while Jared was gone. I missed him TOO much that I didn't want to do ANYTHING! Then I remembered the post of yours when Kurtis was gone for NY. Now, I totally understand what you said about appreciate him more. Anyhow, you are funny girl, Noel! Don't take me away from your friend list, please! LOL!
