Interview with Blogger......

Sherry:  Blogger, thanks for spending a few minutes chatting with me today.

Blogger:  Well, I am pretty busy, but I understand you have a few things to say and thought I could help you clear up a few issues.

Sherry:  Yes, as you know [you know everything, kind of like OZ in the Wizard of Oz], I am fairly new to this whole blogger gig and I have come to learn that it is freakin enormous!!!  I literally had NO idea what to expect.

Blogger:  Well, it has really gained in popularity in the last few years, the numbers are HUGE!

Sherry:  Right, so when I started, I figured it would be friends and family, because I really could not figure out how other people would know I was doing it.  AND...as usual, I did not read up on how to do it.  I am really bad with directions, and after just getting the basics, I was all "OK...I can do this, I don't need to know anymore".

Blogger:  Well Sherry, I hope you have learned your lesson.  Your old enough to know better than that. 

Sherry:  Hey dude, we don't have to bring my age into this.  I already have a husband who tells me those very words ALL the time.  So back off buckwheat.

Blogger:  Simmer down there cowboy, can we get back to why I am here please?

Sherry:  Yes sorry, you just touched a nerve.  OK, what I wanted to say [and please do not roll your eyes] is that in the beginning when I would receive a comment on my email, I would hit reply to send  a follow up email to thank them.  I thought....

Blogger:  What?  Are you for real?  Did you not read that it said "no-reply"....

Sherry:  Hey, can I finish please?

Blogger:  Sure, this ought to be good [loud sigh]

Sherry:  Cut me some slack, I never got one back, so I thought it  was some crazy blogging phenomenon.  

Blogger:  Yea, well I am sure a lot of people thought you were SO rude by not answering their questions.

Sherry:  I get it MR. BLOGGER....my bad.  I feel really stupid that I did it for so long and did not figure it out sooner.

Blogger:  OK, enough wining, I have things to do so we need to wrap up this little party here.

Sherry:  Of course MR. IMPORTANT PERSON [said under my breath, "somebody needs to take you down a notch"].  That last thing I want to say is a HUGE thanks to all the people who have featured me on their blogs Emily from: emilyaclark.blogspot.com.    Rhoda from southernhospitalityblog.com.  Michelle from mynottinghill.blogspot.com.   Abby from themancheskys.blogspot.com.  

Blogger:  You said it little lady!  Come on, interviews on blogs can be boring with out pictures.  Wrap it up.

Sherry:  OK OK.....I hear ya.  Thank to everyone for all of your comments and please know that there are replies  somewhere out there in cyberspace.  I WAS NOT IGNORING YOU.......if that is what you were thinking.

Blogger:  We're done here, this was painful. 

Sherry:  Bite me.

Sherry this is great. Oh you are so right there is so much to learn in blogland and I am on the learning curve with you!!! Very cute way to get your message out there!! If you have a chance come by my blog today, I have a post up called Whats in a name. It has been really fun to ready why bloggers named their blogs what they did. Leave a comment and tell me why you named your blog design indulgence, if you have time and feel so inclined, Happy Saturday,Kathysue

Sherry, you are so funny! And I have to tell you that I thought we were the same age: 30ish. I was SHOCKED when your last post said you had a step-daughter in her 30's! You look so much younger!

I am so glad you joined the blogging world. I'm still learning every day, and I look forward to countless more posts from you!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Haha, Sherry! Yes, there is SO much to learn your first year of blogging. I think I spent a ton of time looking up how to do something, the behind the scenes stuff of blogging. Thank goodness, I don't have to do as much of that anymore. Hang in there!

Wait, I'm sure I've received lots of emails directly in response to comments left. Tell you what, why don't you hit reply to this one and I promise to tell you if it arrives??

Sherry, you're a hoot! I feel like I don't know what I'm doing either :) Now, I'm wondering if people get my replies. That's how I always respond to your comments. . . Hmmm.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

That is too funny. Yes, there is a lot to learn on here for sure. I do wish people would remove the no reply from their comments and then you can reply right back to them.

Privet and Holly said...
