No Reply At All

Are you a Phil Collins fan?
I don't have any albums, but
I think I'd say I am...
He certainly helped fuel my love affair
with Miami Vice back in the day.

I mean...who didn't have heart palpitations when Don Johnson
was walking around with all that sexy stubble and no socks?
Whooo.  Let me wipe the drool off my chin.

But I digress...that was so far off topic I need a map to get back...

Anyway...the bigger question here is:

I recently read this post from Chelsey @ Budget Girl
(okay, it wasn't so recently, this post has been sitting in my queue for a looong time)
that made me think about this in a whole new way.
You MIGHT be and there might just
be nothing you can do about it.

Because some of the things Blogger does is goofy.

So...I know I can be really bad about not responding to comments.
I DO really appreciate and love and read

But it feels contrived when I'm responding just to say "thanks" you know?
SO, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
...For being here, for reading my rambling randomness...
for taking the time to share some sweet words.
You're fabulous...just so you know.
Even if I don't respond to your sweetness.

However...if you ask me a question about some project or recipe or whatever...
I will do my best to get back to you as soon as I am able.
If you read Chelsey's post'll find that sometimes
Blogger does not want to show me your email
address even if you entered it in your profile.
And if you have a Google+ profile it's no fun either.

I will spend a reasonable amount of time finding a way
to respond to you because I feel if it's important enough
for you to ask, it's important enough for me to answer.

If you ask a question and you don't get a response from me...
I am may have to resort to checking
the post for the public reply on your question.
I know this is a frustrating topic,...
so, I've made you some cupcake cake pops so
we can drown our troubles in chocolate.

This is not huge, earth-shattering news...
but I wanted to address it and attempt to be amusing at the same time.
Shouldn't we always try to be amusing? :)
Well I hope you are having a fantastic week...
and if not, keep your chin up...
I'm pulling for you!
The bathroom makeover reveal is coming up soon...
I promise!


  1. Hi Kelly, I know what you're talking about. I also try to respond to each comment by acknowledging them and thanking them, but when you have 20-30 comments, that can get repetitive and not sound sincere. So, at the end of my posts I will usually give a general thank you and appreciation. Thanks for writing this!

  2. Kelly,

    Exactly. :) You are such a great writer and the Phil Collins reference made me laugh. :)

    Happy day friend!

  3. Congrats oh so excited for you. This is such an honor and your home so deserving. I cannot wait to see you in the next issue.

Sweet comments make me a happy girl!
I love and read each and every one!
I do my best to respond to all of them...even though it may take a while...questions I try to answer right away.
