commenting vs. posting

Poll #769289 comment or post

would you rather I:

comment slightly more and post less?
comment slightly less and post a lot more (daily or near)?

Hopefully things will change to allow me more time after hannah's visit, but we'll seeeee... most likely I will continue commenting rarely. I actually comment fairly often, but it gets sprinkled around all 70+ of you and you all get small bits. If I can ever get past my perfectionism and spending soooooooo long on every comment, then I will be able to comment more. I hate thinking about how little I comment. I feel like I know so many of you so well, but of course YOU don't feel like that because I so rarely reply. :-( I'm sorry, but I think it's a flaw I am going to have to live with a while longer. I don't know the real root, though I'm sure it's fear of SOMETHING... I'll deal with it eventually.

also, THANK YOU WONDERFUL invisibleglue!!!!!!!!! I got the CD and photos and letter and it all made me so happy. ♥ ♥ ♥ You are so amazingly generous! I hope to write back sooooon. I love you gorgeous girl!

also, THIRTEEN DAYS. *screamfaint!* By the way, any mutual friends who feel like flying in for a day, feel free! But only for a day, greedy me wants hannah mostly to myself. *snatches her*

we can't have both? ;-)

whichever works for you is fine.

I don't like either of those choices.

I miss your frequent posts. I like reading them so much I sometimes skip down the rest of my friends list to read yours first. Something like the dessert before the dinner, ya know? Only, you know, it's a hearty dessert that is just as filling and good for you as the dinner is. :)

I think your balance between comments and posts is fine :) I tend to go through phases, sometimes I comment a lot on everyones' posts and then I go through weeks where it's more of an effort. There are some of your entries I wanted to post encouragement on but I haven't yet. I didn't forget about them though and I am reading and enjoying your posts very much.

:] I didn't vote! I vote for whichever one YOU feel more comfortable with.

I love your entries and how often they are quite raw and real. I like being suprised by a comment, too, but I don't hold anyone to commenting! People feeling pressured to comment would only make them strained, take a bit away from the authenticity I think.

If I had the means, I would fly over and visit you and Hannah in a heartbeat! I have a gift that I wish to get to her, but don't know where to send it! Do you happen to know her address or anything of the like? I asked her once in a comment but she didn't reply...
ex_alariya46 ══╣╠══
Oh my gosh, i would LOVE for you to get to come out here.

Heh, I don't really comment very much, and I've been shy of adding you for some reason, but I really do like you and enjoy your posting very much. Are you feeling better from when you were feeling bad the other day?

I would love to get to talk to you some time. :)

Where in Georgia are you and Bel? I'm going to look into what it would take to get out there...

hey, though, I meant to ask you if you wouldn't mind waiting until about August the 14th to come down. I'll for sure have a place then, and I'd really like it if you could stay with me.

Plus, if you come down when hannah is here, I'll be distracted since that will be the first time that I'm meeting her too, and I really want to pay you full attention when you come down here. I wanna make sure you walk away from here feeling loved and important and worthwhile.

How 'bout it?

I'd love to have more Bel posts and comments, but I completely understand how hard it is to keep up with LJ. It's especially hard if you're a perfectionist (are you sure that you're not a Virgo?!).

Yay! You got the package :-)

Time is going so fast. It seems like you mentioned recently how it was 100000 many days until Hannah was visiting, and now it's only 13 days. I'm so excited for you, I don't know the girl, but I know how much you love her, and I love how happy she makes you :-) You deserve all the bestest friends!

hee hee i cheated.

pee ess, what are the exact dates again? i don't think i can finegle (sic) time off from school, but it's worth a shot.

and in case you didn't know/remember, this is aubs.
ex_alariya46 ══╣╠══
July 27th to August 13th, I believe.
aubkabob ══╣╠══
bleh, i get out of school on the 18th, so the 13th is around the beginning of my finals week.

ex_alariya46 ══╣╠══
Yes, yes, but the weekend previous to that you won't have any class, now will you?



*looks as sweet as possible*

I voted for comment slighlty more because I think when you're ready it'd be good to let go of some of your perfectionism. I think you're much too hard on yourself when ti comes to comments.

I won't choose Bel love, I love Bel posts and Bel comments equally and wouldn't like to urge you to do either more or less than you're comfortable with: I want you to do what you feel best nourishes your spirit.
dreaded_bliss ══╣bunnyhop╠══
Either way is fine. Neither is fine. Whatever you have time/energy to do. :)

I think it would be good if you commented more and posted the same. I don't know. It's good to hear from you, but then it's also good to hear from you. :-)

sunshinepill ══╣teh snuggleh╠══
i chose the first one because.... when you post it seems so complete *shrug* i don't think you necessarily should post less though. comments could be nie, though. :) (i'm thinking the same thing bout myself, actually... that i should comment more. i do, but it's very random. or i make plans to comment on specific things but get caught up with something totally unrelated.)
misemifein2 ══╣╠══
I'm going for post more, but that is because while I rarely get round to commenting or posting myself, I do get round to reading your posts! Though often it makes me sad these days, because I post so little myself, and comment on your posts so little that I feel very out of touch.

A little more commenting please...without decreasing the posting.
