Comments

If the blogging world is such a popular thing right now and everyone has one then why don't people leave more comments?? I look at everyones blogs and hardly anyone leaves comments on them. I have had over 700 hits on my blog in less than a week and only a few comments out of all that (who knew I would have 700 people reading about my boring life.) But I think if we are gonna share our lives for everyone to read, it's considerate and only fair to leave a comment about what we are sharing. I am not exactly the best person at this but i'm trying to lately. It's exciting when people leave comments and I KNOW i'm not the only one who thinks so. ;) I didn't want to look like a loser by saying something, but I really do wonder why people stop by, read, then leave? Am I alone on this thought? lets see how many people leave a comment...(I know who my true friends are) haha oh but I still love you all!

Lynn said...

Oh you know me.......LOL!

Angie said...

i admit, i am someone who reads alot of blogs and doesn't comment. and i do feel guilty when i do it because i love getting comments. seriously, when i start leaving comments, i waste way to much time and before i know it i ddin't clean or make supper. thanks for the post though, i will try harder to leave comments when i read a blog because i know i sure appreciate comments!

Mark and Hilary said...

guilty!!

Caitlin said...

I agree! It kind of takes the fun out of blogging when you think no one is reading!

meaghan.p said...

Hey... I always read... and then keep going! Sorry, I have lots of "comments" in my head... such as, "your kids are adorable, I wish we could get them together, ect" and I totally feel the same about comments, I wonder how many people read my blog???

caroline said...

Hey you know me Mindy, I always leave a comment! So here's another one for the record! Ha, ha, ha!

Carrie said...

I totally know how you feel. It's funny actually, because I've thought about leaving a comment on your posts quite a few times but didn't 'cause we don't really know eachother. I know Dustin from highschool, and I think we did actually meet once at Zones or something. I'm one of Vinnie's good frieds, Carrie Famulak (used to be Schow). Anyways I guess that's my introduction :), and we can be blogger friends.

Anonymous said...

actually you don't know me Mindy and honestly I am not sure if Dustin remembers me. I used to babysit him many moons ago. I think you 2 are doing a fantastic job with your girls and they are absolutely beautiful. I am only leaving this anonymously because i can't remember my password--anyhow it is Dana Evans(my maiden name is Eldridge)--thanks for sharing your family with all of us.

Janas Bananas said...

I LOVE commets, they are the high light of my blog!!! Good for you for coming clean...lolololol...And 700 hits, way to go sista, you must be awsome or somthing??!!

The Caballero's said...

You don't know me either, so I thought it would creep you out to receive a comment every now and then. But then again, I would love to hear from people who read my blog that I don't know. It's kind of flattering :) You look so put together all the time - supermom! That is definetly a quality I do not posess, but I hope to one day :)
I'll try to comment more often after I read :)

Sarah McDonald said...

I love your blog it's so cute and funny. I don't leave comments because I don't have time haha I am right now because it's 6:50 in the morning and the kids haven't woken and the other kids haven't got here yet! Keep writing it's like a little news paper for me : )

the fellers said...

I am so glad that you said that....but I am glad to say that I do comment on almost ALL of your posts...I think...

Randy, Capri, and Wyatt said...

haha, Mindy you make it hard to not comment. Just kidding. I try my best, but I am sometimes in a hurry. Sorry. I will do better ;)
But I totally know how you feel. I think the same thing.

The Ririe Family said...

I read your blog and dont leave as many comments as I should! sorry!

Kendall & Julie Allred said...

I totally agree I watch my counter go up up and my comments stay at 2!! So I will be leaving TONS of comments from now on=)

Susie said...

Oh my I am one of those occasional blog lurkers. Don't know if you still remember we did meet waay back in Taber once (my husband knew yours). Anyways as if you have 3 girls. You are all way too cute!

Tabitha & Ryan said...

confession time!! I'll admit that i read alot of people's blogs, and i love yours! you girls are so dang cute! although i definatly feel like a stalker every time i read yours or some elses blog since you don't even know me at all!! i knew Dustin from high school, but i doubt that he remembers me!! And i agree comments are the funnest part of blogging, even tho i NEVER get any!!! haha!

Carlson02 said...

K, well you know I read your blog... mine is being STUPID these days, so I haven't posted in awhile. That is why it is showing up as carlson02 instead of Sarah C. Anyways, sometimes I don't comment because the kiddos get in the way *lol* I'm sure you know all about that. But I am trying to comment more too :D

Anonymous said...

I feel the same way about my blog. Thanks for sharing your feelings, I really need to try harder and post comments as it makes me happy too :)

Mleger said...

I like your blog... I only just found it. Well done!

henline crew said...

LOL you are hilarious!! It's true I love comments too and I always wonder why there aren't more of them on blogs either. Hmmm, I guess great minds think alike. haha

M said...

I totally read your blog, I think your family is so fun! I have to admit, i uually only comment when the blog calls out the lurkers....lol.

Kels said...

i am commenting. amidst the craziness. just for you. there you go.

Ashley said...

We all know that I love comments and generally ALWAYS leave comments on others but don't get as many back. That is why I haven't been commenting lately.

Johannes and Megan said...

Ok, I'll comment. I usually don't because I don't know you that well, and I think you might be a little creeped out if you knew how often I check your blog. I just enjoy reading about your adventures of twin-hood...and motherhood. Well, I guess it's out...and now I can post more! I'm Megan Hillyer (Freeze) by the way.

nicole said...

I don't even know how I came across your blog but thought it was reassuring to come across someone else like me. Like you I have a toddler and twins. My son who just turned 4 on Friday is the best big brother we could have asked for. He was 2 1/2 when we had our twin daughters. He was so in love with them from the very beginning and still is. My girls were born at 34 1/2 weeks and were tiny but were great as they didn't need anything for breathing or feeding. They did it all on their own. Sure they stayed in NICU for 2 1/2 weeks but only because of the darn bradys but besides that everything was awesome.
It makes life so much easier when the kids get along so great. Makes it easy for the kids and especially on us parents.
great work

Jessica said...

My comments seem so inadequate. HAHA. Just kidding!! I try to ignore the fact that people don't comment and think of it as a journal for me and my fam.. But comments are fun and I'll try and be more commentating!! Love you and your beautiful fam.

Tyler and Kristin Smith said...

holy fetch! I don't even know 28 people, and that's how many comments you have. Make mine 29! I love seeing your kids get older, because they're pretty much the same ages as mine. It's fun to see what they're doing. Good for you for calling us all out on it!

amieandmichael said...

I look to see if people write comments also. Looks like a lot of people are reading your blog. You sure have lots of exciting things to tell because of your kids! I will take your advice to leave comments on the blogs I read! By the way, I am watching the bachelor also, and its SOO good hey! Did you see how Deanna tells his she made a mistake???? Looking forward to a good seaon!

The Taylors said...

Hi Mindy, I like to stop by your blog sometimes and check out your cute girls and how you are surviving with twins! I am Meagan's friend and my cousin left the first comment, we sometimes chat about out blog stalking friends lol! Your sister dated my brother in law (Matthew) Anyway while I am at it i guess i should tell you that i also had many challenges with my daughter and not pooping properly! #1 no problem but #2 she would go and hide and let it out in secret in her panties and it frusterated the heck out of me, she held it so much that she started to get constipated and then I gave her an enima and she has been fine ever since and has a sticker chart going curently for a new barbie doll once it is complete. So that is my advise, go buy and enima at the drug store to clean her out and then start a sticker chart with a good reward. Sorry to be the grossest commenter ever on your blog!!!!! You asked!

The Evansons' said...

I have read your post twice and not commented, 3rd times a charm I guess!! haha! so........ COMMENT!

Meagan M said...

ha ha ha ha...I'm totally laughing so hard at the Enima comment. Oh so funny. Totally classic Laura too.

Anyway, I always read. And I hardly ever comment. That's just me. Usually I'm reading while Hailey's tearing the house apart, and right when I want to comment I get pulled away for some serious damage control. But I really truly intend to comment. So next time you post something just think to yourself this: "if Meagan didn't have such a terror for a little child, this is what she'd say:__________". And then insert something like "you're so brilliant, or beatiful, or your kids are adorable, or I hope that never happens to me...etc.etc.".

Does that make sense?? Probably not, I tend to babble. Sorry.

Meagan M said...

Oh and just so you know...I sometimes read, don't comment and then come back to your blog a million times. I use your list of BLOGS sometimes to check in on other people I know. I don't have a list on my blog, so I have to use yours.

So I probably loaded your front page 5 times before I actually commented.

ashley said...

I randomly found your blog. I was surfing around looking for old friends came across yours. Funny thing was my sister was like i know her! She was friends with your sister in high school.(kristy)
You have the cutest little girls. I hope when i have kids im as good as you. Also you baby braclets are sooo cute.
Ashley

Tim and Ashlee said...

I try to comment and I apologize if I miss sometimes! But you know I'm here all the time!!!

kyleandtaryn said...

I totally agree! I love to read comments!

Kimberly Yuill said...

Hahaha.... you're too funny Mindy! I'm a regular visitor to your blog, and I relay the funny stories to Brendan. Thanks for always keeping us "up to date" on your growing family..... we still haven't met the twins!
