What You're Saying | Fun & Interesting Blog Comments


My friend Duwan had this great idea to do a blog post highlighting some of the fun and interesting comments you all have been leaving here on the blog. She has lots of great ideas - just check out the super cool and uber-frugal way she transformed Parmesan cheese containers into funky silverware holders using socks. Yep, you read that right - socks.

So here we go - some of the cool comments you all have left. I've left links to the commenters' blogs. Hop on over and say hi to them.

Talk Like a Pirate Day

On my post about Talk Like a Pirate Day, Alex J Cavanaugh said:

"Won't be dressing up but I'm willing to discuss salty seadogs with Simon."

What I love about this comment is that he's referring to my imaginary cat, Simon, who tends to make appearances on the first Wednesday of every month as part of the IWSG blog hop. Sometimes, I think Simon might actually be real and maybe I'm the one who is imaginary. Should I be concerned?

Loni Townsend at Squirel Talk made me laugh out loud with her comment on the same post:

"Arr! What be a pirate's favorite letter? Ye might think it be 'R,' but no, it be the 'C'!"

Go pay Loni a visit. She just did a cover reveal for her upcoming release. It's gorgeous!

Blogger or a Writer?

On my post about whether I'm a blogger who writes or a writer who blogs, Inka at Compass Heading 180 said:

"I think you must be some sort of a humanoid to be able to write as much as you do! For me it's an effort to even read as much, let alone write... I usually binge read your blog posts because I just can't keep up with your pace!"

I'm a ordinary human, right? Or am I an android who thinks she's a humanoid? Or a humanoid who thinks she's an android? Is Simon real or am I? I don't think I'm going to be able to fall asleep tonight - too many deep thoughts about what I really am and the meaning of life.

Inka is a Finnish sailor. She has some beautiful pictures of classic sailboats up on her blog right now. You'll want to check them out.

The White Shoes Debate

When I asked the question about whether or not it's okay to wear white after Labor Day, Sandee from Comedy Plus said:

"Fashion statement? I do what I want and at my age no one even says a thing. I used to go by these things, but no more."

Such a great sentiment! I'm of that age where I'm no longer worried about making a fashion statement. Sandee regularly features adorable pictures of kittens and puppies.

And Christine Rains cracked me up with her comment:

"... wear white shoes? All my shoes are black, so I'm good. :) I think these days no one pays attention to that fashion rule anymore, and I have no idea any other rules... as I type this wearing Captain America pajama bottoms and a T-Rex t-shirt."

I love her fashion sense! Where can I get a T-Rex t-shirt? Christine is an awesome writer. Hop on over to her site and check out her books.

Thanks for the awesome blog post idea, Duwan! I know that I've been slow to respond to them lately, but I love reading everyone's comments. I think highlighting what you guys are saying might just be a regular feature on the blog.

If you're a blogger, what are some of the fun and interesting comments people have left you?

  1. I like Christine's fashion sense, too. Some days, I can be wearing a combination of Porg, Minions, and Harley Quinn.

  2. If Simon is real, then he's one talented cat to be writing books.
    I like this feature!

    1. It is a fun feature - I'll probably do this again in the future.

  3. Ha! I like seeing funny comments. They make me giggle. I have no idea where I got that T-Rex shirt, but it is a dino saying "I'm T-rexy for this shirt!"

  4. I hope you didn't lose your sleep - after all I don't know the first thing about humanoids! Maybe they don't write at all, but use telepathy instead.

    1. Oh, now that makes sense using telepathy! I wish I had that skill. It would make life so much easier!

  5. Fun, funny, touching, clever, heartfelt and supportive comments and the resultant interchanges make blogging more enjoyable than I ever would've imagined. Thanks for highlighting some of your best ones.

  6. Thanks for the shout out and I'm still going to wear what I want. I'm old and I can get away with it just fine.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Ellen. ❤

  8. Comments are as much fun to read as the posts themselves. And I love Christine's fashion sense!

  9. Commenters are great, i am not that quick with a good comment, though.

    In fact, my sense of humor and three dollars might get you a cup of coffee...

  10. I love to leave comments, and I love to receive them. I don't usually have anything super witty to say though.

  11. I like Christine's comment - perhaps we should all be honest and share what we're wearing!

  12. I adore comments and funny comments make my day!

  13. So honored that you liked my suggestion and my sock covered parmesan cheese containers! I suspect even more clever, interesting, and sometimes thought provoking comments will be rolling in as people wonder "who will she feature next?" Hopefully we keep you as entertained as you keep us.

  14. Fun and funny comments are certain to make my day, when I read them in response to my blogs. Some people just have such an amazing sense of humor, like you, Ellen. :-) When it comes to myself, I have to be in the right mood to be witty, and have enough time on my hands. My humor tends to be sarcastic though, so people who don’t know me might think I’m incredibly rude or insensible. Oh well. Do I care? As much as I care about my sense of fashion, which has been ever non-present.

    1. I do love sarcasm, which is a good thing as Scott can be very sarcastic.
