Please feel free to NOT leave me a comment.

Blog comments.  It's not like I am begging for them. I mean, I could care less.  Leave them, don't leave them; I don't care.  Whatever.  
Here's what weird though.  Women will comment on each other's blogs as if they may be dying the next day...
SAMPLE:
We had a great weekend.  (Enter child's name here) took out the bubbles and started blowing bubbles all over the front room.  Our front room was filled with bubbles and it was just magic.  A magic bubblethon of adorability!!!  (Women bloggers use a lot of exclamation points!!!)
Here's a picture of (Enter child's name here) with bubbles all over his face.  Isn't he adorable!!!!!!













(Actual picture.  Not computer generated.)
Great post.  Real solid, right?  Probably took the blogger a good 15 minutes.  Within 20 minutes after posting the blogger has 10-15 comments just like these:
SAMPLE:
"Charlotte, you are soooo cute!  I just can't get enough of you.  You are the guiding light that beams through the mists of fog."
"Charlotte, little Joey is the most adorable thing I have ever seen!  Look at how he's reaching for the bubble - it's like the bubble is a puppy dog and he is trying to pop it.  Tell your cute husband hi."
"Charlotte - This picture is the most precious thing I have ever seen in my life.  I ran off 38 copies and posted them all over my cubicle.  Every time I look at it I think of Joey... and of you... but mostly of bubbles.  Love your blog."
Like I said, I don't need them.  Whatever.  I just wish I could just add a tracker after each post that could tell me how many people liked it.  In the meantime, I'll just dream up more colostomy bags of hope to keep the masses entertained.

Hmmm, funny you should do this post right now. Before this post had posted (I know...that's saying the word "post" waaaay too many times at once!), I clicked on the Cheetos comments section to leave a comment. However, the one that was already left there about Punky Brewster was so funny...I didn't want to sound lame by leaving a lame comment. I guess I should have left one anyways. I'm going back there right now....

Funny post, Abe. You hit it right on the nose.

Why don't you add a poll after every post asking- Did you read? Yes, No. Did you enjoy? Yes, No

Cheeseboy said...

Jordan, I actually just figured out how to do a mini poll after each post! This is so exciting!

Sometimes I feel wierd leaving comments on your blog since, well, I don't even know you. But if you really want people to start telling you how adorable your posts are... it can be done. I am well practiced in that area.

The poll is a good idea. Some people might just be tired of actually writing "that's funny" in your comments every day. Now they can tell you without having to think of something original to say.

Here you go Abe. This is a star rating system you can add to Blogger posts http://www.outbrain.com/

Cheeseboy said...

Thanks Lindsey. I think that I found just the thing. And Matt, thank you for the great idea - I didn't know it existed. I may run with the star system thing, depending on the results of my poll. Also, I am not so sure if I am interested in receiving one star for a crappy post. I don't really want to know if people think I suck, just if people think I'm awesome.

Gosh, because I'm now #8 in the comments there isn't much more to say except that I loved this post! And because you're making fun, I wonder what you say about my posts :)

For some reason the blog roll on my blog doesn't always work. It shows that you just updated but when I came over you had 4 new posts that I hadn't seen. Sometimes that's why I don't leave a comment. Or sometimes you leave me speechless and what can I say then?

Is someone experiencing blog comment envy? haha. sometimes you need to leave comments on someone else's blog before they will leave comments on yours (hint, hint). kind of like when i tell my son, if he wants a letter, he needs to send one first. cheeseboy, you are soooo cute! I just can't get enough of you. You are the guiding light that beams through the mists of fog... more colostomy bags of hope please!
