  • some questions for you blog readers out there: 

    1. do you follow a lot of blogs? yes, lots. and lots.

    2. how do you follow blogs? actually going to the page, or through a reader/some other method? i follow on my reader, unless it's a pw-protected post, then i'll click to view it.

    3. do you comment a lot, or mostly lurk? i don't really comment, i wish i was better at that sometimes. i always get a bit nervous, especially the first time. kinda like how i'd imagine a blind date would feel. i comment with some frequency on duchess's blog, and other nesties' locked ttc posts.

    4. what kinds of blogs do you like to read? i read all kinds. i have quite a few ttc blogs, some lgbt blogs, photography blogs (both how-to advice and photos), cooking blogs (like that's going to help or something), and some random fun things like cakewrecks and the like. see? a LOT.

    5. what's your favorite blog that you follow overall? pioneer woman.

  • 1. do you follow a lot of blogs? Yes, at least 20

    2. how do you follow blogs? actually going to the page, or through a reader/some other method? I use a reader because it's faster but feel I miss out by not going directly to the page.

    3. do you comment a lot, or mostly lurk? I try to comment often

    4. what kinds of blogs do you like to read? I am open to all kinds but mostly read TTC/IF/Baby blogs right now

  • 1. do you follow a lot of blogs?
    yes

    2. how do you follow blogs? actually going to the page, or through a reader/some other method?
    mostly on my reader, though i do click through to many

    3. do you comment a lot, or mostly lurk?
    some blogs i comment, others i mostly lurk. i comment mostly on the blogs of people i "know," or smaller blogs.  big, popular blogs with tons of commenters - i'm less apt to.

    4. what kinds of blogs do you like to read?
    interior design, "mommy" blogs, lesbian family/ttc, local boston blogs, a couple of lgbt news/entertainment, and the occasional timewaster like passive-aggressive notes or cake wrecks (so yes, that is a lot, LOL)

  • 1. do you follow a lot of blogs? - Not alot I have ~6 that I follow daily.  Then a handful I'll check a few times a week

    2. how do you follow blogs? For several I use an RSS feed to have them sent to my main yahoo page.  A few others I get emails whenever they are updated.

    3. do you comment a lot, or mostly lurk? Lurk. I rarely comment or never comment on some.

    4. what kinds of blogs do you like to read? Mostly they are people I know. Although I enjoy cooking blogs and lately random decor/baby blogs.

    5. what's your favorite blog that you follow overall? I don't have a favorite but as I mentioned earlier I love the way Sarah writes.

  • 1. do you follow a lot of blogs? I follow the 14 I have linked from my blog (because they are easy to get to), and a few others that I don't have linked.

    2. how do you follow blogs? actually going to the page, or through a reader/some other method? I actually go to the page. I set up a reader once, but I am a very visual person so seeing the blog background, etc, helps me remember who is who.

    3. do you comment a lot, or mostly lurk? I try to comment on the blogs of people I know, especially those that aren't swamped with comments. I think it's kinda sad when people put something out there and no one responds. I don't comment much on people's blogs when I don't actually "know" them.

    4. what kinds of blogs do you like to read? lesbian ttc/baby blogs mostly

    5. what's your favorite blog that you follow overall? I don't think I could pick just one, but I am really impressed by the nesties who regularly update their blogs. I aspire to be that kind of blogger some day. :)

    3. Mostly lurk although i've been telling myself that I should break that habit

    4. TTC/IF, Fostering/adoption, baby, and cooking

    5. good things catered

  • 1. do you follow a lot of blogs? Yes (sometimes too many).

    2. how do you follow blogs? actually going to the page, or through a reader/some other method? I use Goggle reader (which I LOVE) and categorized by type of blog

    3. do you comment a lot, or mostly lurk? I comment on a few but mostly just lurk via reader.

    4. what kinds of blogs do you like to read? Most (maybe a third) of the blogs I read regularly are LGBTQ families including TTC, pregnancy and parenting. I also read some related to other interests of mine (anti-racism, childbirth, etc) and some just for fun (Failblog, postsecret, mymilktoof, etc)

    5. what's your favorite blog that you follow overall? This is a hard question. I just started reading http://figboiler.typepad.com/figboiler/ and I'm enjoying following their process.

  • 1. yes, too many =) i have two link lists on my favorites: "blogs" for things that are short/easy to read and updated frequently, and "sunday blogs" for when i am bored or things that are updated less frequently

    2. i actually go to the pages. i have tried several times to figure out "readers" and am too stupid to get it, apparently.

    3. almost totally lurk, although like others said, more frequently comment when i know the writer

    4. running/triathlon, cooking, "theme" blogs

    5. don't know that i have a favorite, but I love the Candy Blog (beautiful pictures, thorough info, great writing), Steece's Pieces, Cupcake Blog, my friend Kate Flaim's blog. i also love my brother's food blog, Porkalicious, but maybe that's cheating since i'm a contributor :-D

  • 1. I have 5-6 blogs that look at regularly but I often get really excited about a blog, gorge on it for a while and then lost interest.

    2. how do you follow blogs? I use Google Reader for my favorites and go to pages sometimes.

    3. do you comment a lot, or mostly lurk? I tend to lurk and only comment if I really feel like I have something to contribute.

    4. what kinds of blogs do you like to read? cultural criticism, entertainment and lightweight political blogs tend to be my faves.

    5. what's your favorite blog that you follow overall? Fatshionista. I also love Stuff White People Like (although that's been very slow lately). Bloggishly news sites I am streangely addicted to are realityblurred and queerty.
