I'm so lucky to have so many furiends!

Curious Flower Friday

These are Kayla's birthday roses from her Daddy.

Mom and I have some questions for you guys.....
*How do you keep up or find enough time? We're talking about blogging in general. Things like reading, commenting, and creating posts along with working, cooking, spending time with family and dogs.
*Do you follow everyone who follows you?
*Where are the extra treats hidden?
*Do you have a hard time finding things to post about? (Don't tell Mom I said this but sometimes I think my blog is getting boring...and I'm still a relative newbie!)
*What is your favorite thing about my blog?

I have entered in a fun contest over at Munchkin Memoirs. It is the Most "Ear"resistable Contest. Now, I have to say there are some pretty cute ears in this contest but go take a look for yourself. Oh, and vote while you're there too. You can vote once for your favorite set of ears (which I am sure will be mine ;o)). Seriously though, look through the entrants and vote for the one you feel is most "Ear"resistable. I don't have a chance in you know where of winning this one. But that is ok with me!

Have a "Twixerrific" weekend!
Thanks Khyra for giving me that word! It's bound to become one of my faves!

Hey Twix,

Some days our Mom/secretary/photographer has a hard time thinking of something to blog about - other days it's easy. But it should be fun, not a chore. If you are having trouble thinking of things there are lots of different themes for different days of the week.

We do follow most everyone who follows us, but many of them only post monthly or less.

Just keep it fun and if you need to take a vacation, do it (we're taking one soon)

I follow blogs I like to read, and most of the writers don't follow me. I try to post at least once a week, without worrying too much about keeping it interesting, because it's about ME. I write what I want to write because it's good mental exercise. Somedays I read every update on all the (20 or so) blogs I follow. Sometimes I go a week without reading any of them. I just do it as I can. =) Andy said thanks for your kind words on ours. He is lounging with Daddy today while Mommy works and Mommy is very, very jealous of both of them.

Twix, I saw your comment to Tank about EATING HOT DOGS. I am still shivering. We dachshunds should NEVER DO THAT. At my house we only have... TUBE STEAKS.
Now you asked what my favorite thing about your blog. That is soooo easy. YOU You and YOU. I love to see you on your chair. I like seeing you with your Lorenza original dress. Your blog is fun and filled with love. My mom does not let me follow every single blog. She is over protective of me and of my YapStop computer. I have to pick and choose and then SHE has to give her paw up before I can even leave a comment on a blog.
They have to be kind and gentle blogs (like yours is) beclaws there are some children who read MY blog. She does not want what she calls (some nutcase) finding my blog and leaving nasty comments or something that the kids might read and be upset by.
So my dear furend, your blog is as special as YOU are.
Just promise me one thing... no more of that cannibalism stuff. Switch to Tube Steaks instead. Licks and Wags

I take lots of photos, and I mean TONS! As I browse through them, I get ideas for posts. And sometimes it's vice-versa -- I'll have an idea for a post and then I take a host of shots on that subject. Since Ruby is a service dog in training, we go on a lot of outings, and many times good photos happen along the way that make for additional posts.

Hi Twix. We will answer your questions as best we can. We sometimes fall behind on reading blogs, but we try our very best to get all caught up. Sometimes, to get through them all, we only comment on a few until we are all caught up. That speeds it up a little. It's not easy finding time for us or for Mom. And yes, we DO try to follow everyone who follows us. Mom keeps the extra treats in our duffel bag. Yes, we have our own duffel bag. We travel with Mom and Dad so much to go see our Mimi that we have to have somewhere to keep all of our stuff! And sometimes we DO struggle with finding things to post about. When that happens we look back through old pictures or go to that site that generates a random idea for a blog post. Our favoritest thing about your blog is YOU!

Good luck in our contest!

Chihuahua kisses,
The Munchkins

Hi Twix...seems to be a blogger's 'can't get going again bug' going around...Tank has put his blog on the market, Dory is cutting back...you feel squeezed...too. We too are new, June 2009. In the beginning I was going to post 3 days a week but it was summer and I had free time...now with the holidays approaching I'll get busy so I might actually go to 3 days a week. I have a select few (about 15) I check daily and comment on...then if someone new comments on my I reply...I read many others several times a month....but then I don't have children at home either....so ....that is my story. As for what attracted me to yours I have love for dachshunds...You need to do what works for your family....maybe just cut back

Hi Twix, yeah it can be hard finding the time to read and comment wiff everything else our parents have to do during the day. Posting every day can be hard, that's why we only post 2 - 3 days a week. I like to read all my furiends blogs, but it's hard to find time to every day. When I write a post I will check up on my furiends blogs. But yeah, I don't have as many followers as you. I don't know what's going to happen eventually as everyones followers keep growing. I mean, what if someday we all get 500 followers? BOL, who knows, it could happen!

We like your blog because you are cute and funny and you have lots of pictures. Picture posts are quicker to read then ones wiff many, many words. Good fur when your mom is pressed fur time and has to decide which blogs to read.

We have a hard time keeping up! Google Reader helps us see who all has updated.
It's easier for us to think up things to blog about because there are four of us. (How come Mom is giving me a funny look?)
We love your blog because it's about YOU and things that interest you. We like to hear what you're doing, see pictures of you, and the flowers are really gorgeous!
Play bows,
PS: They're in the freezer. Really.

What beaWOOtiful flowers!

ANYWAY, on the furry important khwestion about the blog and the khommenting!

It helps I have general themes but somedays, it is diffikhult -

As for the khommenting, I khouldn't do it without Google Reader - I do read 'em all but my sometimes my khomments are limited - I do my furry best to khomment on the ones that khomment on mine faithfully -

I've also had khwite a few new visitors - I add their blog and try to visit them when I khan too -

I do think that the next time I get MAJORLY behind, I will do the 'mark all as read' to keep my sanity - and when I'm sane, my mom tends to be a bit more sane too!

PeeEssWoo: I will admit that I do get sad when some past blog pals seem to stop visiting and/or khommenting without letting me know why - I even try to keep visiting/khommenting on theirs but eventually I tukhk my tail and leave

I hear ya. It helps to give yourself permission to do whatever works best for you. People will understand. Keep posting your gems when you can and they will return when they can. That's the beauty of the internet. You can do it all at your leisure.

Happy Friday!!! :)

The OP Pack said...

We are struggling here with the blog for many reasons. It is very hard to keep up with everyone's posts but we do try to read and comment for all our regular visitors and we do comment on a few that only comment once in a while. That's OK, we understand. But we are considering a shutdown of the blog for a while. We are still thinking things over.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hi, Twix!
Pretty flowers! Happy Friday!
Posting everyday is not easy. I do it every other day. My mom goes to work at 7 am and comes back at 6 pm. That is when she takes me for a walkie (camera in hand!) and then she takes some more pictures while we are at home. She can't read blogs at her work so she has to wait until night to do it. She uses Google reader to know who has a new post. If I get a comment from someone new, we go to visit his/her blog and add it to our reader. Some days it is hard because we have, in average, 90 posts per day to read! She tries to leave a comment for every one but sometimes it is not possible. She does as much as she can!
I love your blog because of YOU! I love to see your pictures and to read your stories. I love you, your Mom and your Dad!
Tell your Mom to do what she feels is better for her. But... no stress... no pressure...
Kisses and hugs

HI Twix,

The flowers are very pretty. I bet they smell good too!

Mom says blogging is for fun. So if it isn't fun, it's time to take a break. I do have trouble at times coming up with something new and interesting to blog about. The past two weeks have been specially hard cause mom has been busy snoopervising the roofer men. I think she may find it easier to help with my blog and keeping up with my furiend's blogs when the bad weather gets here and we are not outside as much.

I like your blog cause you always have cute pictures and your stories make me BOL.

Wags & wiggles,

Twix I love your name. Seriously. Um so I see one of your favorite movies is Old Yeller, I found that movie disturbing on soooo many levels girl, we have to talk about that one.

Have a nice day!

Mochi and Mommy said...

Hi Twix! Sorry I'm so late in commenting. I'm still trying to catch up with all the blogs we missed while I was at the doggie hotel and with the passing of Aunty Ume.

I love reading your blog because it's about you and I love looking at all your pictures! Sometimes we have a hard time keeping up with the blogs and coming up with new things to blog about. I noticed that a lot of people use Google Reader. That's something I may have to try since it seems to help them read through all the new posts. :) Hope you are having a great weekend!
