I'm Here to Please

You know, I'm pretty happy with my little piece of blogland that I occupy. I work pretty hard at it...braving the elements for my gardening pictures, slaving over a hot stove and grill for my foodie fans, making my cats hold still for their weekly photo op, drinking the wine, reading the books. But I do it cheerfully for you, my peeps, my followers, my lurkers.

And while, I don't dare compete with the master bloggers, I'm pleased with my average of 20 or so comments. I know you, with your 60 or 80, or gulp, hundreds of comments per post are shaking your head sadly at little-ole-me. But seriously, I love my average of 20 comments, it's like the porridge and Goldilocks, it's just right.

So, what am I to think of a recent post that earned almost twice my average number of comments?? What did I have to do to almost double my comments, you're wondering. Simple. Drop hair gel on my boob. Is that what it takes people? Cause if you want more stuff spilled on my boobs. That I can do. I'm here to please.

Isn't that a riot?! Now I'm chuckling over the hair gel incident again. That was funny! Goes to show, every one loves a good laugh. ;-)

SusanD said...

Like many of your followers, I read your blog almost daily yet comment occasionally. Who could resist commenting on your gel mishap? Not me. lol Blessings, SusanD

SDK said...

So that's what it takes, huh? Sheesh, maybe I'd get TWO comments on my blog if I dipped my cleavage in ketchup...

girlichef said...

LMAO...bwa ha ha ha ha!

Kat said...

Good point.

Eve said...

AHAHA. Love it. :) 20 too much is a lot! I might do some boob smothering to achive more comments... If only I had boobs of sizable notice!

Katherine Aucoin said...

I love your posts, the hair gel..well we've all been there and we identify with you.

Patricia Scarpin said...

You crack me up, Pam - I laughed so hard my boss looked from his office (there's a glass wall between us, thankfully). :D

Antoinette said...

Does this mean that spilling something on each boob will garner you 4x the comments? Hmmmm.... food for thought. ;)

Jim said...

I vote for that suggestion....I look a few times a week, but that could turn me into an everyday fan. (you can't see me right now, but I'm winking) He he.

tlm said...

I would be pleased with 20. I prefer your recipe blogs. Now if you would like to drop something on your boob while cooking, I guess that would please everyone! Imagine the comments then!

Marjie said...

Sometimes Thor gets 20 comments. You have a much greater following than I, and so does my dog. I enjoy what you write, and love it when you provide us with a good giggle.

Natashya said...

Ha! Too funny. I try to vistit every day, whether you show your boobs or not..

Rachel Cotterill said...

I always get more comments where I'm least expecting.

Debbie Cook said...

ROFLOL! I was going to comment on the recent skirt you sewed, but this one is more my speed. Still love the skirt though.

Pearl said...

haha that's hilarious!

Paula said...

Now this could get veerrrry interesting! BTW: I love your blog of which I am an avid follower. I look forward to each and every comment on my humble little blog, and feel like I've just visited with friends after reading them. Of course, if I'd put pictures of my spillage on there, I could perhaps up the ante on the friendship level! :-)

annelowry254 said...

I love your blog! The pictures, cats, books, FOOD - everything I am interested in. It was fun to see what you look like as well!

Long dark hair, blue eyes said...

look what a little bit of self disclosure does for your comment level. I have noticed the same thing on my own blog, if in the middle of more general info I put something out there about myself I invariably get more comments. This was the first time I had seen you post a pic of yourself so I had to comment on it.

wyo said...

Isn't that a hoot? Work at it, get results ... spill stuff on your boobs (and take a photo), get double-results! ;) (I like all your posts, except I feel a little sad about the food ones because I personally just do not like to cook ... only to bake!)

April in CT said...

You do that and my husband is likely to join as a follower...and he doesn't even read blogs. LOL

the ungourmet said...

That is too funny! My son's cake must be a rockin' post too! I can't believe how many peeps stopped by to comment. This blogging business is an interesting thing!

a good yarn said...

Cheap celebrity style stunts such as the boob gel antics will increase your audience but as you have experienced, such fame is fleeting. You've had your 15 minutes - now move on.

Les said...

20 is nothing to sneeze at! I love everything about your blog. The photography rocks. The recipes are tantilizing. The humor keeps me smiling. And, book talk. I can never get enough of that. I'm here to stay. When's dinner? :)

Sweet and Savory said...

You got at least 25 on this one so it seems just mentioning your mishap again, has the magic.

I suggest you title each recipe - Gel _ Boob and you will have comments forever.

si said...

hah! i enjoy your blog -- don't always comment, but i do enjoy it.

it might be that most of us can *totally* relate to what happened with the hair gel -- whereas we, (especially myself), cannot always relate to the perfect dishes, beautiful pics of your lovely garden, and the wonderful shots of your darling cats. it's like looking at beautiful art -- so admirable, but we're just wishing for 1/10th of your talent. now klutziness, on the other hand -- we're right there with you! :)

SweetPeaSurry said...

I'm gingerly pawing through your blog to find this infamous blobbed boob pic, I miss so much when I take a little time off (giggles)!

I love ya blog, blobs on boobs or no!!!

Blessings!

Psychgrad said...

Haha...I've occassionally pondered why some posts get lots of comments and others not so much. Baking definitely gets more than cooking...

Maybe you just need to find a way to work in the words "hair gel" and "boob(s)" in every post.

Nancy said...

Okay...let's make it an even 30 comments! You are so funny Pam! I love reading your blog. I barely get 5 or 6 comments...help!

Which boob...maybe I should drop something on mine...the opposite one of course...a pair of dropsys...or maybe in my case droopsies!!

Have a great week!
Hugs, Nancy

i am merely happy with a dozen - so maybe i should follow your lead - amp things up and drop some gel on my sticky outy bits
