I'm so lucky to have so many furiends!

Monday, July 19, 2010

I have a confession......

It used to be so easy to keep up with my furiends postings but I have way more furiends now than I used to. Don't get me wrong it makes me happy having lots of furiends but more furiends means more blog postings to read and comment on.
By the time Mom and Dad get home from work, cook dinner, do this and that, I'm lucky to get an hour of computer time most nights. And, if I miss a night, I have about 300 posts to read the next night.
You guys know what I'm talking about?
 Oh, you want to know about my confession?
 Well, I have to say, it makes me very sad to admit this.

I can't keep up!
No way, no how, not any more.
Do you guys still love me?
I just can't figure out how some of you do it. Momma says she could stay up late and help me but Daddy doesn't like that too much for some reason.
Blogging is a funny thing. You start out with your very first post and think there will never be anyone reading this. Why do I think anyone out there might want to know what I, Twix--a doxie, think?
 I remember being so worried about not having any readers. I would even bug my first blog buddy, Lorenza about how to get more furiends. A year or so later, I have a hard time keeping up with all my furiends.
Anyway, please know that I haven't left you if I'm not leaving comments every time you post. I just can't get Momma to leave work a couple hours early every day to help me out.
 Do you guys have that problem with your blog assistants?
Seriously?

On another note, Mom has been doing a lot of work on our New Computer!!!!  We finally got our own on Friday ;o)
 It seems that it takes some time to get everything set up and working just the way it should.
Who knew?
Maybe new computer of our own to put our photos on etc means more blog time for Twix!!!!!

I know what you mean, Twix. It's getting harder to keep up for me, too, and I don't have as many furiends as you. That's why I don't do most of the Blog Hops anymore. I can't keep up with everyone I already know. It's just that the pet blogiverse is sooo friendly. I just do my best. I guess that's all you can do.

wags, Lola

Tank said...

Ditto what Lola said... I quit trying to keep up a long time ago. It turns into a job if you let it & I'm sure your mom doesn't want another one of those:)

scotsmad said...

We hear you. That's what you get for being soooo popular! Our assistant only works part time, so she can juuuust keep up.

Good luck,

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Hi Miss Twix - oh yeah, we know exactly what you mean! We read all the blogs but we don't always get time to leave comments. We try to leave comments at least once a week and we hope our pals understand - what are we talking about, we know they understand!

We in turn understand that not everyone can comment on our blog - never foget Miss Twix, blogging is supposed to be FUN! But that guilt thing is HARD isn't it?! Don't beat yourself up about not being able to leave comments - you'll always be our pal and we don't expect you to comment on every single post, gosh, that would be MADNESS, he he he!

So, in conclusion - don't worry and just bask in the knowledge that you, Miss Twix, are very popular and have loads of bloggie pals who love you! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Oh Twix!
You are still a great fur-end. I know its hard sometimes. Don't worry, I don't mind if you miss some of my posts. I still love you. Please don't be so hard on yourself Twixie.

Love Miley xxx

Mr Koda MD said...

We still love you Twixxy!

My mother dearest is useless at helping me keep up with the bloggies so we just do a few comments but we read more.

Life goes on!

Happy wednesday

Kari in WeHo said...

we also don't leave comments on every post. Its just too much somedays!

Don't forget, we are changing our blog this Friday. Please update your reader to follow dogisgodinreverse.com

Three Dogs Long said...

We totally understand, Twixie! As the list of blog friends continue to grow, it gets harder and harder to find the time to keep up!
We're just happy to read & post when we can - and expect no more from our blogger friends!

(((hugs)) your friends

The Thundering Herd said...

We all hit that problem sooner or later. I figured out long ago that real life is more important and this is just fun. At any point it stops being fun, cut back.

I scan using Google Reader and comment only on some posts every day. No worries, no pressure.

Zona said...

Don't worry, Twix! We all understand! If you get to it, you get to it. We still love you no matter what! That's what's so wonderful about our furends!

Don't stress. :)

Wags,

No worries, MIss Twix!!! Just knowing that you blog is enough for your fans>

It is hard to keep up, but we just keep doing our best!

A MilShelb Mom said...

We agree. We have trouble keeping up, too! There are just too many! Good luck. Don't worry. It doesn't hurt our feelings if you aren't able to comment all the time. :) We hope you're doing well. Just make sure you are enjoying blogging and not feeling like it's a chore!

Remington said...

We are starting to feel the same way....don't want it to feel like a job....just fun! So we understand, my friend....

Nadine, Chewy and Lilibell said...

Oh Twixie...this is not something you should worry about! Everyone has the same problem, including us, we read everyone's posts almost every day, but it's just too hard for us to comment on every single one! You will always be our greatest furfriend!!

Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

As our Mom shared with your Mom, it is very difficult. It becomes a Catch-22. You want to comment and you want to get comments. But sometimes you just have to do what works best for you. We won't forget you, Twix, just be happy and healthy.

Dovey said...

Hi Twix! Blogging is supposed to be fun. Don't let it stress you out! =)

hero said...

Twixie girl, don't be too harsh on momma... she is trying her best and daddy is concern for her too... we all understand. Just remember, once a furiend, always a furiend... we all love you no matter what and we are always here for you.

Licks, hero

The Two Country Poodles & Uncle Puppy said...

Twix blogging is something you should never fret about it is supposed to be fun. Never worry that we will not love you for not being on as much...Mommas and daddy's gotta work to put the kibble in our bowls. Although we put our momma in college so she has more time to blog with us instead of working that might be a good option for you. Any hoo sometimes you just gotta clear the google reader and begin again.

mayziegal said...

Oh, yes...we all know what you mean, Twix! Sometimes we can't believes how hard it is to keep up! Like you said, we thought at first we wouldn't have ANY furends and now that we have quite a few, we worry abouts letting them down. But you most definitely don't have to worry abouts that, Twix. Everybuddy luvs you and if you can only comment sometimes, that's most definitely more than enough!

Wiggles & Wags,
mayzie

Frankie Furter said...

I feel your pain girrrrl. I have the same problems. It takes me twice as long to do blogs as most people beclaws I am on Satellite and don't always get grrrreat connection. Movies often take 5 to 10 mins. to load for me. Blogs with tons of stuff on them take forever to come up. Squiggle word varification adds another 3 mins. or more to EVERY blog's reading time... and if there are a bunch of pictures... they don't always come up so... I have to re=start the whole blog.
It is a labor of LOVE... don't get me wrong. It just takes a LOT of time. SOOOOOOOO dear furend... Keep readin' 'em , enjoy the fun, and comment when you CAN... not beclaws you feel you MUST. We ALL totally understand how it is... and we are all in this TOGETHER... for EACH OTHER.

Bijou said...

Hi Twixie,

Yep, it's not easy to keep up with every buddy and we don't have as many furiends as you. My mom says she already has a full time job and she don't want another one so I can only get her to help me when she "feels like it". Pfft!

Anyways, don't worry your purdy little head about this. Blogging is suppose to be fun so when it gets to be too much you just gotta take a break.

Waggles,
Bijou

Erin and Co. said...

IT is very hard too keep up, so we only comment on a few times a day. I have my google reader folders divided up my blog content so that I can read all my dog friends one day, and my people blogs another day etc..etc.. we have over 500 blogs we are subscribed too so we understand!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

We soooooo know what woo are pawing!

Time
To
Remind
Ourselves
Again:

IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN!

Don't worry 'bout getting to all of 'em and/or khommenting on all of 'em!

Nice to see woo again BTW!

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Twix....my mom says family first...always...everything else has to fall in line.

We do still like you bunches!!
Madi and Mom

Marla said...

Take it easy Twixie . . . you don't have to comment on everyone's blog for us to know that you love us all . . . And your momma doesn't need another job (I question if she really needs the one she has now . . .) Ha! Smiles to you all!

Marla

Maggie and Mitch said...

It's impossible to keep up, Twix! You do the best you can and that's all you can do! Your friends understand. We all have the same problem.
Have fun setting up your new computer!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

K9friend said...

I hear you, Twix. I used to comment on every post. Then I convinced myself three times a week would work. Now it's one or two times a week, and I'm a little concerned about that.

I've decided to be content with doing the best I can. I think most blogger buddies would agree with that!

It's just not possible to comment on everyone's blog every day, or even every week! So, no worries, you just keep blogging and we'll keep reading! :)

Tessa the Maltese said...

Twix, my Mom knows what your Mom is talking about. Mom takes after Lorenza's Mom. Short and sweet.

woo woos, Tessa

Hannalei said...

geeze and I thought it was bad at trying to keep up with the ones I follow. I don't have nearly as many as you I'm sure. You must just be worn out my dear! Xo

Lorenza said...

Twix!
See?
We all know how you feel!
It is not easy!
Just do what you can and when you have time.
As long as we know you and your family are happy and healthy, we will be happy for you!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

Sandra said...

Yes, our mom often feels the same way. She says that sometimes it can take her many hours just to make her way through all the blogs. We don't understand what the problem is? It's not like she has anything else to do besides be our assistant. Right? Right!

twinkietinydog said...

Bless you. I stopped by to pretty much tell you what you posted about today, with the exception of the new computer. Mom is in deep doodoo with her time and her friends, agent, and family are not too happy with her. But, you're our Twixie girl and we had to come by to check up on you.

Miss Reina and Lil Torres said...

Hi Twix,

yeah.. i know what you mean... For myself, i have dad to help me with my blogging. Hes like the editor. Mum will spend time with me reading the blogs of other doggies. both of us are always amazed by the stories shared.

Of coz there are those days where we are all so busy, so we'll always be a post or two behind time.


But not to worry twix, thou are are my new fren, you are one to keep :)

Elizabeth said...

Don't worry Twix. We know exactly what you mean. Our assistant is getting LAZY!!! You are right about getting behind too! We still love you!

BRUTUS said...

I hear ya Twix. When momma has lots of teeth to go fix at work the blog really suffers. Sometimes only a few posts a week, the nerve... And we can't keep up with visiting all our furiends either - we try as best we can, have to kind of rotate them sometimes! We're glad to see any of our pals comments when they get a chance to visit, and appreciate them no matter how long it's been!

Snorts-
Brutus & Carmen

Mochi and Mommy said...

Hi Twix! I know how you feel. My assistant is very busy too and she has been spending a lot of time at work and helping to plan a big birthday party in September! Don't worry we still love you! :)

Sharon Wagner said...

I don't get that many comments, but what I do is just comment on the people's blogs that just left me a comment. And then only check the rest of the blogs once in awhile. It's amazing to me how some people get so many comments. Like you Twix!

Mango said...

Yuh. We can't keep up either. Used to be able to skip a day here and there and still catch up, but now my reader gets jammed packed and momma just uses that old mark all as read button with reckless abandon. We all understand.

Slobbers,
Mango

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Twix
We feel the same way. There is no way mom can work full time, take us for a walk & cook supper & still have time to blog after that. Especially in the summer. Who want to be indoors when its warm outside.
Love Ruby & Penny

the booker man said...

um, miss twix, you soooo don't have to worry cuz as you can see, my mama and are just now getting to your post from MONDAY. lame-o! i know, it is hard to keep up with everybuddy, but don't get all worry wartish cuz you'll be my friend no matter how many times you comment on my posts. :)

road-dog-tales said...

Sounds like we're all in the same boat here - thank dogness! everyone is so understanding. We loooove our readers and want to keep up with what everyone's doing, but there's just so many hours in a day!

Sue said...

We have the same problem, Twix. When we started we only had one reader and now it's all we can do to keep up. We just do what we can and try to check in at least every few days.

Pretty soon we're going to have our 500th post. Can you believe it? We'll have to think of something special to do to celebrate.
