Tiggers Love to Bounce!


Look familiar? Well, I did warn you waaaay back here about my manic Tigger tendencies, but I probably wasn't clear. I sometimes (not all the time, which is why I am not diagnosed as ADHD) bounce from one brainstorm to another to another, ideas leaping so damn fast that none come to fruition. And so I am with blogs. I leap from cooking to fashion to writing to derby to autism to quirky to angst to laughter blogs... And like the blog whore I am, my interest waxes and wanes, fading almost as quickly as it is sparked.

This is probably why my blog is full of random nothings amongst deeply personal revelations. I SHOULD pick a theme. The most successful of blogs stick to a motif. But do I want to prosper under those conditions? Or is my blog more of a personal therapy experience? The latter, methinks.

But I know it is not a lot of people's cup of tea.

Oh, and whilst I am on a bloggy binge whinge: Why do I not appear in blog lists on the pages of some of those who I know follow me? Hmmm?

Is it a NOCD thing?

Go on, do tell...

Dunno. Have wondered that same question myself. For the record,you are on my blog roll.

Don't pick a theme. Stay eclectic. i much prefer blogs that are a bit of everything. Stops things getting boring.

Well i haven't added you as I can't remember how I added the list straight out of my google reader into my wordpress page. If I could work it out, I would re-do it. One day!

PS. Tigger was always my favourite AA Milne character. ;)

What's..... NOCD? I am sooo not part of the cool group, I have no idea what you mean.

I was having this very thought (about the choppy-changey blog without a set theme thing) just the other day. Thought I should probably get myself one. But I guess, like you, I settled on the fact that mine, too, is a personal 'therapy' journey. Well that's how it started, anyway.

Oh for a theme, huh!? ;P

OMG, thanks for reminding me! Was going to update my blog roll yesterday and forgot!!!!! I'm onto it right now. xx

No way, don't change a thing! Random blogs are way more personal, that's why they work!
Glad the NOCD question was asked, I didn't know either!
Yes, I do know I am on very few people's Blogrolls too.
I try to make an effort to move all Blogs I read to my Blogroll, it's just polite to spread the love, ya know?!
Sometimes I do have trouble with links & feeds though, for some reason there are a few I can't get to update even if I put the URL directly on my blogroll. Go figure!

P.S. awards & tags for you at my place! Though I think you've already got them up here!

Love Tigger. My grandson calls him Tiggerboo. I tried clicking on your follow button several times. Nothing. Can ya help me out? Found you thru Brenda's FYBF. Lovely blog.

Madmother said...

Am loving the floggin! No idea - are you with blogger or wordpress?

If I cannot press a follow button (am with blogger) I just copy the url and go to my dashboard and add it there.

Sorry I'm not more help...

Tmena said...

Nice. Thanks

Ratz said...

Well that's something i can't understand either.... My blog's got no motif... Hmmmmmmm.. Maybe that's why? (Whatever)

Found you via the Great MummyTime...

Nice post!

I haz no Blogroll. I goit sick of the politics and just opted out of the drama.

Theme blogs are boring! Its way better when you never know what your gunna get! I have theme blogs in my reader, and if I dont feel like that "kind" of blog today, I dont read it. Then there gets to be about 20 posts for that one blogger and I end up just marking all as read. Mind you, every morning I wake up to about 350-450 posts in my reader, and I read posts throughout the day, for about 14hrs a day!

You have made me paranoid now. I have a blog list, which I haven't updated in ages. And I have all the blogs I follow in Google Reader. About 120 blogs. Should I put all of them in my blog list? (Can you tell I have NFI on the etiquette of blogging?!)
