Why My Blog is, Like, The Best One To Follow

I’m not one to brag.

I’m too humble for that kind of thing.

Do you notice how humble people like Paris and me try to hide our assets so we down draw unnecessary attention to ourselves? That's just how we are.

Do you notice how humble people like Paris and me try to hide our assets so we don’t draw unnecessary attention to ourselves? That’s just how we are.

But my blog is, like, really, the best blog to follow…if you’re looking for a great bloggerific experience, that is.

Does it look like I could use some diversion?

Does it look like I’m ready for something new and exciting?

Oh sure, you need more than just my word that this is the blog equivalent to Nirvana, right?

If you’d just trust me, which you totally can, this would be a majorly short post.

And why wouldn't you trust me? I just got back from the, um, er, rest home. Yes, that's it, where they tuned me all up. My brain is working better than ever. I just wish I could remember where I left my body...

And why wouldn’t you trust me? I just got back from the, um, er, rest home. Yes, that’s it, where they tuned me all up. My brain is working better than ever. I just wish I could remember where I left my body…

But, no, you need proof (and by “proof” I mean “a list of reasons I came up with when I woke up early this morning”).

Fine. I can give you proof.

1. I hardly ever post. If you’re maxed out on time, no worries. So am I. You won’t see me popping up in your reader or email in-box a bazillion times a week. Nope. I don’t have that much to say. You’ll be lucky if I show up once a week, and that’s after I get all my boxes unpacked from my move across country (which will be sometime in February if they stop spontaneously multiplying). I’m a low maintenance blog, People.

None of the modern day equivalent of this kind of thing necessary to keep up with me.

2. If you love language, congratulify yourself for finding me. I adore words. All of them, even ones that aren’t registered pure-bred. Don’t mutts make the best pets words?

Scrappy is one of those made-up pups and I think he's scrappalicious!

Scrappy is one of those not-one-breed made-up pups and I think he’s scrappalicious!

3. You’ll never read a rant here. No. No. No! Never. This is a NRZ (No Rant Zone). Why? You’d be amazed how much trouble you can get into when you start telling people what you think. I found that out right before my husband left me.

 

Yeah, I find that annoying. How about you?

Yeah, I find this annoying. How about you?

4. I like silly pictures and I bet you do too. Nabbing them from Goggle Images isn’t the worst thing in the world, is it? Especially when the perfect zany picture and caption makes you smile.

Like this one. Is he as confused about the hat as I am? I'm thinking he got himself inducted into some secret brotherhood of and now he is stuck trying to figure out the secret hand shake and how to explain his long absences every other Thursday evening to his wife.

Like this one. Is he as confused about the hat as I am? I’m thinking he got himself inducted into some secret brotherhood while drinking with his “buddies” and now he is stuck trying to figure out the secret hand shake and how to explain his long absences every other Thursday evening to his wife.

5. I mix it up around here. You never know what to expect, except that it will brighten your dayΒ and maybe even give you something to talk about with the people you talk to. I’m a former college professor and I’m a dizzy blonde. If that isn’t a formula for fun and informative posts, what the heck is?

6. I don’t cuss, curse, or use naughty words. Gomer PyleΒ would be proud. I know dropping the F-bomb is all the rage, but that’s just not the way I roll.

Shazam and golly! The way they drop the F-bomb on that there HBO channel, it's enough to give a guy like me the willies. And think about all them women-folk who have ta listen ta that. I sure am glad my momma taught me better.

7. Finally, you’ll never leave my place saying to yourself, “Well, that was a real downer.” If you do, seek professional help. Really.

That'll make you feel better.

That’ll make you feel better.

I hope you’re convinced, because I’m tuckered out.

Do you have any idea how many boxes I didn't unpack today because I decided to write this post? Oy Vey!

For those of you who have followed me for a while, how about helping me out? Why do you follow my zany little blog?

For those of you fairly new to Lorna’s Voice, what made you join in?

For those of you just whizzing by, what made you land here even for the briefest of times?

By the way, the answer to the quiz is to write with a red marker. Go figure, huh?

  1. Apparently we are both right. And clever, too!

  2. πŸ˜†

  3. I need luck and about four big strong men! Were we talking about unpacking?

  4. Didn’t I just respond to you?

  5. You’re the best, Narelle! Thanks, and I love you, too!

  6. Thanks so much! Like…really! πŸ˜‰

  7. That’s a good enough reason for me!

  8. “Twisted wisdom.” I like that…I think. Love you back!

  9. You are always so peppy in your responses, Izzy! Where do you get your energy? I love it. I wish I had some of it!

    And yes, sometimes I end my comments with just a punctuation mark to be different.

  10. Thanks so much. I did need a break from the boxes. But they multiplied while I wasn’t looking!

  11. I’ve decided to slow down a bit on the unpacking. My dizzy head can’t take it. I don’t want to make myself sick (or sicker)! Thanks for stopping by and saying so!

  12. Hi Devina! Of course I remember and the hot chocolate! Thanks for stopping in. Scrappy has a long and shaggy look and a shorter “do.” I’m keeping him shorter here with all the rain–just makes it easier to keep him and the house tidy!

  13. Happy New Year, Lorna! This is Devina (from the blog named after delicious a certain hot beverage), by the way. I’m writing from my ‘secret’ blog (to much real life ppl know that one), to which you are totally welcome, you’re event exempt from the inductive archaic rituals! I’ve been inexcusably absent for ages but her I am.

    I love ‘Lorna’s Voice’ because of your energy that make the words come alive for me and you’re hella funny. Also, has Scrappy gotten a new hairstyle? I can’t say for sure but he’s looking particularly sharp. Good luck with the unpacking, I have tons to catch up on here. I can come over with box cutters or tequila, which – oh darn, I near for got you’re Buddist, sorry πŸ˜›

  14. I don’t have much to say either. I really can’t find the words to respond to this post but I’m digging deep. Won’t hold up your time since you’ve got all that unpacking to do.

  15. Whew! I’m tuckered out right with you. πŸ˜› Love the creative word creations, especially ‘bloggerific,’ because mine is too! I know I’d be blogging instead of packing or unpacking boxes. Bleh. Moving sucks, and I want to move out of state if we ever get a chance to escape this place. Thanks for the fun read, Lorna. Good luck with the move.

  16. SORRY … !!!! I looked it up. …. add elaborate, typically red, capital letters or other decorations to (a manuscript). I must remember that for when I write my manuscript someday … YUP .. someday. : O
    I know you posted it at the end but I’m a curious gal. I have to read it from an official dictionary. lol
    Well … this was your usual SUPER SPECIAL captivating post. I love everything you write about even a rusty nail. No. Don’t write about a rusty nail. I’m kidding. You’re too intelligent for that.
    I can’t say enough about Lorna’s Voice. Keep them coming !!!!
    Izzy πŸ˜€ ❀
    p.s. Are you tired of emoji's? I am sometimes. : (

  17. I follow because of your wit and twisted wisdom. You are a clever girl. You make me think and smile. We are a great team. Love you. πŸ™‚

  18. ❀ πŸ™‚

  19. Why do I follow your blog? who the hell knows, but I do enjoy laughing and maybe that is the reason…

  20. Lorna, simply put, you make me smile. THANKS! (Plus you are a darned good writer and I enjoy reading well-written stuff!)

  21. Lorna, I follow your blog because I love you. xx

    PS. I appreciate your generosity and empathy for others, and of course your mastery of the photo caption!

  22. Ha, ha, you always make me smile, Lorna!

  23. I follow you because I often get a feeling of dΓ©jΓ  vu. Didn’t I just answer this question?

    Nice to see ou — I hope the move was untraumatic.

  24. Hey, thank Patrick! Hood to see you over here at my place! πŸ™‚

  25. Sales person? Me? Golly gee willerickers! No! I’m a very shy person in real life and would likely talk people out of buying something for fear they didn’t really need it! That’s why I find marketing my book so difficult. I have to do it with humor, otherwise I couldn’t do it. I also rely on Blogger Buddies with Facebook and Twitter accounts to spread the word. I don’t even know how to market myself on social media. 😐

  26. I bet you thought I made it up (which I should have put as one of the options! Glad you learned an absolutely useless word. πŸ™‚

  27. I’m so glad you think so. I’ll just have to keep things up when I come down off the panic attack I’m having from being in a Steven King-like horror novel about boxes that keep multiplying and moving in on me when I’m not looking! πŸ˜‰

  28. Al, do you mean to tel me you go stumified by real words you could look up in a real dictionary? I’m not surprised. I haven’t cracked a real dictionary open since I was getting higher edumacated.

  29. Hilarious you, Lorna. I had no idea what Rubricate meant, but I thought it was none of the options, so I didn’t vote. πŸ™‚ Good luck with the unpacking.

  30. Oh dear, you’re picking up life tips from a girl who blundered her way through life? Peter, have another cup of tea and rethink your life plan…please! πŸ˜‰

  31. I think I lost Scrappy in all the paper. I keep asking him to speak so I can find him, but he’s enjoying the solitude. Oy vey! πŸ™‚

  32. Well, there’s this one guy back in New York State by the pseudo name of Victor… πŸ˜‰

  33. That would be another great thing for you to research, Len! Who, besides this dizzy blonde, gets struck by lightning twice and writes a funny book about it? πŸ™‚

  34. Just sticking my head up over the boxes to try to find some sanity. Can you blame a girl for and her aching back for wanting a break from the chaos? πŸ˜‰

  35. Shucks, I really like you, too! ❀ I think I'm cyber-blushing!

  36. Shazam!! I like you. I really, really like you 😍

  37. Like all things Lorna. So happy to see you pop up over the cyber horizon. ❀

  38. Love, love the photo of Scrappy. In answer to your query, I found your blog because you found mine first. I thoroughly enjoy your humor, and after reading your memoir, kind of understand where it comes from. Who gets struck by lightning twice?

  39. Who wouldn’t like Lorna’s blog?!

  40. Insanity can be entertaining. Happy unpacking!

  41. You know I’m a committed reader of the Blog, and I am happy to confirm I have picked up many useful “life-tips” from your posts. Long may they continue πŸ™‚

  42. I couldn’t agree more with your reasons!

  43. I like the humour, the realism and down to earth thoughts. I can learn from all the facts and especially figures not always numbers. heehaa! I do love your style,, were you ever a salesperson?????says me smiling..I especially like your loyalty in return…

  44. I follow your blog because it’s so funacious. The crazy pictures are laughistic. And it’s terrificable how your write. As for the thing about the pure bred words, I’m not exactifiably sure what you mean by that?

  45. Hilarious! Excellent reasons to follow and I love silly pictures.

Silence can be just what the doctor ordered. You know I'm a doctor, right?
