My Name Is Josanne, And I'm An Addict

Hello World(hanging my head in shame)

I have a confession to make(looking at my shoes-well, I'm not wearing any shoes actually, but this is how I feel in my heart!)

See, I was reading another blog group site, and one of the commenters posted the longings of my own heart, even tho she was talking about herself.  She said, "I had little traffic and was getting no comments."

After someone actually brought it out into broad daylight, my very own secret in their own life, it gave me the courage to come clean with my readers. 

Friends, my name is Josanne, and I'm a commentaholic(still staring at my shoes, figuratively).

That being said, this week's Five question Friday questions are perfect and fitting for my confession.

1. What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you?  My heart!  The physical pain I feel because I get little traffic and few comments-oh the pain!  I know it has to feel just like Mama M's heart attack!  Oh the agony!

2. How much sleep do you get at night?  None!  I am up all night trying to figure out ways to get my readers to comment!  On a good night, I may get 6--after so many nights of tossing and turning, trying to gain your comment love, it finally catches up to me, and I collapse.

3. How long did you believe in Santa Claus? How did you find out that he does not exist?  I believed in Santa Claus until I was 39.  My entire life, I always received everything I asked for, until I was 39, when I asked for more traffic and comments.  Double Whammy!  Santa Claus isn't real, AND I don't have more traffic and comments.  What a letdown!

4. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?  "I Get No Respect" by Rodney Dangerfield.  Kind of reminds me of my current plight.

5. What do you wear to bed?  Aren't you paying attention?  I already told you I don't sleep!  See question and answer #2.

But folks, there IS hope!  That same blogger that comments on her little traffic and no comments continued on to say, "I sat down on my 3rd anniversary and dumped out my frustrations in a post. Then the heavens opened up and rained grace on me such as I never expected."

She, the kindred soul to my own, broke free from that awful curse, the drought of comment-less-ness!

What's that I hear???  Are the heavens being opened (hint hint!!! grovel, grovel!!! plead plead!!!) ???  =D

Ok - well since you asked so kindly - here I am :-D

I know what you mean - sometimes you feel like you are standing in a vaccuum talking to yourself. It seems to me though that the best way to get comments is to leave comments. At least that's been my I'm expecting to hear back from you - Right?

Funny post!!

Faye said...

Very good!!! You made me laugh again!!!!!

Erin said...

I don't know that I've ever laughed so hard at anything so early in the morning. Well, something my daughter didn't do anyway. ;)

I often feel like I'm "standing in a vacuum talking to" myself, as Donna said. Most days, it doesn't matter because I write for me. But every now and then there's a topic that I'd like the world's opinion or encouragement on and there isn't any. Sigh.

I try the commenting to get commenters, but I HATE just leaving a "LOL" or "Great post!" comment. So I only comment when I really have something to add to the conversation.

Found you from Mama M, and I'll be following to try and throw some comments your way!

Angel said...

Great post! Here's a Comment for you! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE them too!! but I never get comments either

Matty said...

Well then. Here's a comment for you. But only because you groveled.

I felt sorry for you.

Josanne said...

Aww....thanks! I wonder if I could get people to send money.....maybe if I keep grovelling....

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

Josanne!! That's a great idea! Let me know if groveling for money works - I need a new computer!

Hey found you via 5QF, and thought I'd leave you a wee comment to say that I loved how you tied all five questions to your "Gimme Comments" theme! (Very creative and highly amusing!)

Have a great weekend!


Your fellow comment addict,

Are we long lost identical twins or something? Certain we must be. I have proof. Um, your blog background. {grin} I seem to have noticed the word chocolate in your blog title as well. And I hardly get comments and I understand the cry in your heart. The end...

Lorilynne said...

I know how you feel about the commenting, I often wonder if people are even reading my blog or if I'm just writing to myself. Thanks for the laugh this evening!

Meg said...

Your answers to the 5QF made me giggle! haha

Deanna said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I also suffer from the same ailment as you do. Thank you for providing some relief. :)

Love your 5QF answers as well!

Stacie said...

Amber said...

Ok Mama, I am jealous about your comments!! Maybe I should try groveling for a bit and see if gets me any:P
