These Needles Are Chains

Thanks for not reading my blog, guys. So in my previous blog, I wrote about the types of comments people leave on blogs. I thought it would be more respectful to leave blog-related comments, but some people didn’t seem to notice the โ€œI’ll just ignore your commentโ€. Ironic.

Anyway, moving on. Vivien timed me returning comments earlier, and it took me 52 minutes. Not terribly exciting. Shows how much time I have on my hands… not. ๐Ÿ˜›

I had some nice plans for today, to fix up the website section, and also to set up my scribble portfolio, which is on another domain. It’s going to take a really long time to scan all of my scribbles and make pages for them. A really long time. I have about three hundred scribbles, and scanning them all and making pages for all of them is going to be hell. I have five more weeks to do it, so hopefully I can.

I have a few ideas for domains to display more of my photography as well. I was also thinking of giving away some .info domains, possibly in the next month or two. But that may be quite some time as I’m rather busy.

I received some questions on my last blog, so I’ll go ahead and answer them.

Mallory asked me this question and Heather also asked me this question previously.

How do you get so many comments?

I have always found it hard to answer this question because I’m really not sure. I get a lot of comments and I try my best to return all of them promptly. I used to “bloghop” a lot in the past, but now that I get so many comments, I haven’t had the time. Many of my comments are from affiliates, and we do have little conversations through comments. I do appreciate receiving comments, so that is why I try and return them all and keep in contact with my visitors. I try and update regularly and write interesting blogs. I don’t have the greatest resources or tutorials at all, and I think that my visitors like to read my blogs. ๐Ÿ™‚

Gillian asked me a few questions.

How long did it take you to validate your XHTML? ๐Ÿ˜†

A long time. I did it a while ago, when I opened this domain last October, if I remember correctly. Before that, I didn’t know a thing about XHTML or accessibility, so I had about two hundred errors. ๐Ÿ˜…

Whatโ€™s your favourite song?

This is a hard one to answer; I have so many favourite songs. At the moment, it would have to be Soft Skeletons by Anberlin.

Would you rather be super skinny or super fat and why?

I’ve lived with being rather skinny. I would rather be skinny because I wouldn’t have as much difficulty moving around. I can’t imagine carrying a lot of weight because I’ve been skinny all my life so far. I think I would be able to adjust to it better. And I wouldn’t mind having smaller boobs. ๐Ÿ˜›

Em asked me this question:

Do your family/friends know you own a website? Are they supportive?

When I started web designing seven years ago, my mum didn’t like me putting photos of me. That was about the only thing she didn’t like. Right now, she and my dad know that I blog and maintain websites, but they don’t really ask me about it. They know I talk to people online and so on. Now they sort of trust me with what I’m doing so they’re not worried. They don’t ask me about it, or visit my website or anything.

My close friends such as James and Lilian know about my blog and websites (and domain addiction). They have blogs of their own and comment on mine as well. ๐Ÿ˜„

I got a few other questions which were rather general – like “How is university?” – well, it’s good. Even though I am on break right now. I return to second semester in July; about a month from now. All my blogs seem to revolve around my website (James is easily bored of these kinds, aww โ™ฅ๏ธ ). I should probably get my butt out of the house. ๐Ÿ˜…
