Blogger Spies - Identify Self Please



Recently I have heard this comment by several friends, "Oh, I saw . . . this or that . . . on your blog!" To which I reply, "Why didn't you leave a comment so that I know you were checking up on us?" The answer to this question varies from my dog ate my homework to I had to wash my hair. I know that I struggle with the same thing; however, I am trying very hard to improve my spying ways. So if I stop by someone's blog (that I know), I attempt to leave a quick (no matter how dull) comment to let them know I was there spying on them. So, if you are spying on the Hines Herald, we are simply asking for a brief hello to cut down on all the stalking in the blogging realm. We have even made this easier by opening up our blog for anonymous comments to those of the "non-blogging persuasion" (quote taken from Don Hines).

When looking up the spy idea, I stumbled upon a huge website with all kinds of magnifying glass clip-art. They had bowling balls to paint brushes holding magnifying glasses. Since there has been an influx of toilet stories on friends blogs (Carissa and Shannon) I thought I would salute you with the plunger holding the magnifying glass!

Happy Commenting!

Okay, Katrina, you caught me! I do have your blog in my Google Reader and check it every time you update! I hope that doesn't classify me as a stalker! ;) Keep blogging...I enjoy keeping up with your lives!

Hey pretty girl club member! Are you proud of me for leaving a comment? I do my best to please Mrs. Hines! I would not want to get silent lunch. Be Good!

Tracy said...

Hello Hines, It's been awhile . Like Trisha, I check out your blog whenever it pops up on Goodle Reader. Sorry to not have left a comment before. I loved your posts with the door competition.

I guess I'm guilty of spying! :-) I have your blog in Google Reader and I enjoy keeping up with you. I really liked your door in your competition. It was very creative. I'll keep in touch!

Spies usually don't tell the people they are spying on that they are spying on them, but... at your request, I'm watching you!

You realize that if I leave a comment every time that I "spy" on someone's blog, my husband is REALLY going to make fun of "all the time I waste just sitting around..." :-) But, I'll oblige you.

Please ignore my husband's sarcastic remark, sometimes he just can't help himself. :)

I am right with you! I need to do this on my blog! I do a lot of blog surfing, and anytime someone says...was on your blog...I want to scream, LEAVE A COMMENT!! :) There's is some weird thrill that comes with the rising number of comments each time one checks!!!
I love the plunger! Micah Tuttle got us a his/her plunger set for our wedding gift! He spray painted one blue and one pink! Too funny!!!

Hey, I'll admit, I'm an occasional lurker on quite a few former NBBC-ers' blogs including yours. :P It's good to see the two of you doing well.

Hi, My name is Abby, and I'm a lurker :-) I often update myself on people's lives, and then leave it there - usually because I don't know if people remember me from my stint at NBBC :-) Glad to hear all is well with you!!
