Blog Envy

Have you ever looked at someone else's blog and wished your blog could be like their blog? I never knew I could have these feelings. It is odd and I may have reached some new level of strangeness.

Envy (also called invidiousness) may be defined as an emotion that "occurs when a person lacks another’s superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it."

So there it is and I have envy.

Here are some blogs I envy and why:

1. Random Thoughts.
This is a fun blog. If you haven't looked at it, check it out. It cracks me up. Why do I envy it? Her last post had 32 comments. I think I get 32 readers in a month. The reason there are so many readers is because the writing is hilarious and she never bores you with long, dull stories. She keeps you guessing. I don't even know her name. (Just kidding) It makes you laugh until you pee your pants (which is sooner than later for some moms out there).

2. The Meservy Monthly. These guys were blogging before blogs existed. This is my sister and brother-in-law's site. They had a monthly family newsletter they used to send out. It was chocked full of interesting tidbits about their interesting family, lives, and stories. Basically, it is very interesting. Love it.

3. De Profundis. This blog is about my best friend, Tami. She is so amazing and I've always tried to emulate her. She is naturally comedic, brilliant, and very well versed. I just love that she is able to travel all over the world, have adventures, and she does an amazing job writing about it. Plus, she is just plain cool.

If you would like to participate in this exercise, please tag your post with “blog envy” and list 3-5 blogs that create deep feelings of envy and jealousy.

Wow! Melody, I am stunned. As I started to read this post, I was thinking, "What could she be talking about? SHe gets like forty comments on every post. I think the MOST I ever had was 7, and that was when my new baby was born! I usually get like 2."

You are so funny! Thank you very much for the flattery, though. I do wish I had as much readership as you. So, I guess our blog envy is mutual! Of course, I wouldn't wish you to not have it!

Have you seen It is a really cool site/business blog about cool, frugal ideas. He has one post called "100 things to do on a Money Free weekend". Yup. And its as cool as it sounds!
