Celebrating Clever

This will be a short post, but I want to try something.

The greatest satisfaction of blogging is probably finally hitting the publish button after you have worked, reworked, and worked again on your post. The even greater satisfaction of blogging is the comment section. I don’t think I ever get boring comments. Y’all are like my own little laugh factory waiting to explode with responses that could make even Kristen Stewart crack a grin. Yeah, I went for that unoriginal and overused joke. You see? I am not the funny one here, y’all are.

So here is what I am thinking. I’d like to end my blogging weeks by recognizing three funniest comments for each week. I will still write a normal post, but I will post screen shots of the selected comments (for those of you who don’t read the comment section thoroughly) at the end of my post, and link to the bloggers with the winning comments.  I don’t blog on Saturday or Sunday usually, so the idea is for these comment winner announcements to appear on Friday posts. Today will be a test run.

I will be be elaborating on the Fly Blog Award next week. As long as I don’t get burned out.

El Guapo on Picture This… (does this count as a birthday present?):

Thanks for making me laugh every day. What do y’all think about this idea? Love it? Hate it? Should I give up blogging and try to become a stock photo model? Express yourself in the comments. Mind you, I said express, not expose.

  1. Do whatever floats your boat, your blog after all! It could be fun but it might get people trying to compete against each other – or is that what you want? 😉

  2. What a great idea…a melting pot of funny! Love it and will look forward to more. Jen

  3. What a great idea, Becca! Unfortunately I can’t see the first comment.

  4. Love it! Comments are the best, and when there are typos, it’s even better. 😉

  5. Great idea. Yes, I just said that so you’d look favorably on my comments 🙂

  6. Now I’ll probably never comment again. There’s suddenly all this pressure to be witty. If I wanted pressure in my life I’d wear pants that are three sizes too small.

  7. Love it!

    Expose you said? Very well, let me just change out of my granny panties.

  8. This is an excellent idea. But Calahan is going to be tough to beat.

  9. oh come now, miss. explain yourself.

    The greatest satisfaction of blogging is probably finally hitting the publish button after you have worked, reworked, and worked again on your post. The even greater satisfaction of blogging is the comment section.

    if something is “greatest,” then is it really possible for something else to be “even greater”?

    now march back to that laptop and think about what you’ve done. and no cookies for you.

  10. I like it! Even if I never win. I always love your comments, Becca cutie!

  11. Oh yay. Something else for me to compete for, just when I am finally getting over the ulcer induced by Le Clown’s blogroll contest. And by that I mean that it is an excellent idea and that I love it.

  12. Don’t worry, coat firmly closed so as not to expose!
    And love the idea! Everyone (except me) is too clever by half and needs to be recognized ^.^

  13. I like the idea. But you’d also make a great model.

  14. Calahan is one of the funniest commenters of all time. He is also a very tender lover…or so Le Clown told me.

    I love this idea!!

  15. Love this community. Your brilliance makes it better. I laugh more at reading other people’s comments than the things I tell myself with my inside voice.

  16. Once again, you have hurt my feelings. All sadness. HF

  17. calahan is one of my all time favorite commenters. He doesn’t know this, but I’ve already designated myself to be the best man in his wedding if/when he has one. And if that doesn’t pan out, I plan on being there at his next doctor’s appointment. It’s what any die hard Internet stranger would do.

  18. You’re such a generous gal, Becca. But now I feel extra pressure to post a witty comment after each of your posts. Thanks for that. Its not like I don’t have enough to deal with as it is…
    You know, for a long john weraring cutie pie, you can be a real pain in the ass sometimes… But I love you anyway… I guess..

  19. The community to me is the best part of blogging.
    A whole bunch of bloggers (including me) do shout outs like that.
    It’s nice to point out those that catch our eye and share it with everyone else.

  20. The comments really are my favorite part because there are so many clever, funny people. That Calahan leaves some of the best! What a hoot that guy is.

  21. lol this was awesome I needed it this morning
