They're Back!

Was I relieved this morning to find all my blogs back on my follow list! I was so upset yesterday, I was having withdrawls, I definitely have a problem..... I'm a blog addict!! Wonder if there's a group out there that supports this kind of addiction?

Talking about blogs, I was having an email conversation with Annie the other day and the word "Lurking" came up, you know how people lurk around blogs and never leave comments. Well we think it sounds kind of sinister so we've come up with a new word "Blogurking". Us bloggers have created a whole new language that non-bloggers just don't get, like Blogoverse, and Blogoversary and every other term that relates to blogging. Tell us what you think about our new word or if there's a better name for it we can adopt as our own?

PS I'll stop the posts without pictures soon, I promise!

Ah Jo - that means you would have missed the 10 posts I put up the past couple of days! he he he... oops, I mean the "0" posts!

I think your new word is blogtastic! It's blogolicious! You go for it blogbabe! :-) I agree, lurking does sound sinister... like something you might find written in the pages of a thriller novel!

No pictures eh? I saw a snowman in a snowstorm, eating white marshmallows...

Oh man, I'm gone crazy! I'll shut up now before you ring the men in white coats (they were also in your picture!) he he he...

I think it should be Blurking!! Glad to hear that your follower are back - I'm totally addicted to blogs too. Need to stop looking at other peoples crafts and get on with doing some of my own!!

hi jo I am glad that your blog is working now. I like the new name LOL. I was talking to some lady from my work and they said that how clever I was at blogging. As they go and have a look every now and again at the things I make. They had to ask me what DH meant they had no idea.

Oh good. Maree left a comment on my blog saying the same thing has happened to her and they came back. I've copied my list just in case. I'd be lost to seeing I'm blogdicted. There's another word for you! lol

Kerri said...

So glad you have got them back. Im a bit of a blogger addict too. Dont like it when things aren't working.

Deb said...

So pleased you got your blog list back Jo. How scary would that be to loose it all. I would never know where to put myself.

Amanda said...

Ange beat me t it - I was going to suggest blurking too.

Yep, I agree with you and Annie, Jo - lurking does sound like a very sinister thing to do; but blogurking sounds like something strange you would do in Scandinavia. Blurking? Hmm - I'll have to think about that one!

Isabella said...

I'm a follower so I'll just stick to any new words you all come up with :)

wonderwoman said...

Glad that your blog friends are back again! Blog lurking does feel a bit like stalking don't you think? Blogurking is a great word for it. Blurking is also a good one though.

I have to confess to being a blurker of many many blogs......
including yours......

maybe we should have a commentathon lol

Carin said...

I like it very much! I agree that someone being called a lurker sounds like you need a restraining order or something LOL!

Blogurking - I admit to being one of these. I hang around many blogs when really I should say "Hi"

I read the "newer" blog posting with all the with all the new "blog prefixes" you have come up with, but can see from this post how it eventuated. Yes I think you are very clever with this "blog"ictonary idea.
