Unsolicited Advice

Holy crap it's already Wednesday, or hump day, whichever you prefer.


Of course I prefer humping over anything else.



I have a feeling that hundreds of new bloggers are going to be visiting me today to say hi. Why? Because I'm being featured over at SITS, a cute lil ol' bloggin network I joined decades ago.

Ok, so it was just last year but it sure feels like decades (love you guys btw). But since I have all your attention, I'd like to take this opportunity to offer some bloggy blog blog advise to y'all (crap, there's that accent again).

Please for the love of all that is holy, change your comments page to a pop-up window. Please! If you have your comments set up so that they are embedded below your post, poor Pooba cannot comment.

Tragic! I know.

My computer blocks me from commenting only on blogs that have that embedded feature so please everyone go right now to their "Settings" tab in blogger, Click on the "Comments" header and where it says:


Comment Form Placement

  • Full page
  • Pop-up window
  • Embedded below post


Click on Pop-up window!

If you do this, you will win a prize! You will get into heaven and all your dreams will come true. So take my advice peeps, if for no other reason than to make me happy, cuz I know that's all y'all (sh**!)wanna do.

(Make me happy that is, not sh**, I was just cussing my southern accent there. Although, I guess we all sh** too so either way.)

Happy SITS day--you make me laugh! I am off to change my comments to a pop-up window--thanks for forcing me to Ü. I've wanted to--didn't know how.

Brandi said...

Here from SITS. THANK YOU for this entry, I hate when people don't have the pop up commenter and a bazzilion letters and numbers that you have to type in before you can comment. ; )

I LOOOOOVED Stolen Innocence, I will save all my views {cause they ain't all good} but for the most part it was eye opening. Shiaz ... I'm too dramatic.

Either way, True Blood rocks too and so you have officially became like number 1 blogger in my book.

Enjoy your day. : )

Fidgeting Gidget said...

Happy SITS day! You're hilarious. I'm following now. :)

Greetings from Guatemala said...

Happy SITS day. Thanks for the commets advice. Blesings!

Mommyof2girlz said...

Happy Feature Day SITSta! You have a great blog and I see we love True Blood, it's my guilty pleasure. Well that and wine..haha Sorry to hear about your friend "The Mole", but so glad to hear they got all the margins this time. Have a great day!!!

Mama Mel said...

LOL! I just changed my comments to Pop-up! Thanx for the advice.

Controlling My Chaos said...

Good advice. I learned this one the hard way. The pop-up window also saves time when you want to go back and read more posts. That means people are more likely to stay longer, read more, and comment more when you make it easy for them.

I would also add, get rid of that stoooooooopid word verification thingie. I loathe it and it wastes time.

Jessica and Michael said...

Happy SITS day! Congrats too! I'm running as fast as I can to change my page. Haha. I realllly love your blog and will be back more! :)

Karen said...

Happy SITS day!

You are one funny girl! I guess I'll have to come back and visit again!

Brandy said...

Robbie said...

Hey, thanks for the heads up, and happy SITS Day!

hotpants™ said...

Happy SITS Day!

Thanks for the comment advice. I know some people can't comment me. I think a lot of it has to do with Internet Explorer, but I took your advice and changed to a pop-up window.

hotpants™ said...

Also, I love True Blood!

The Main Ladybug said...

HAPPY happy SITS DAY to you!

Amanda Hopper said...

:) I changed my settings...just for you! :)

Mary at My New 30 said...

You know, I don't understand why Blogger even offers the embedded feature if a lot of folks have trouble with it!!?? And I'm pretty sure that the ones who are using it have no idea either. I had my blog set up that way until a kind soul emailed me and let me know, so I changed it.

By the way, bein' as I'm a southern gal to the core, I happen to love your accent. Besides, y'all has crept all across the country now, which makes me a happy gal too!

Hope you have a wonderful SITS feature day.

Faith Imagined said...

Too funny! I am changing mine right now!!!!!!

Jill said...

Happy SITS day!

Jon and Steph said...

Okay, I'm doing this right now!! I meant to do it yesterday when I got your email, but then I got sidetracked. (Surprise, Surprise!)

Cairo Typ0 said...

Congrats on your SITS day!! :)

I thought I was the only one who couldn't use those stupid embedded things! I have to open a different browser and mess up people's hits in order to comment.

thatgirlblogs said...

happy SITS day... I think I have the comments set up correctly... I guess you'll have to visit me to see for yourself ;)

Tabitha@ichoosebliss said...

Happy SITS day!!

Sara said...

I had no clue! Changed. :) Now I need to go buy True Blood.

THE Stephanie said...

You're so silly, Pooba!! But you're right... and while they're at it, they should all remove the word verification to!!

BOO for word verification!! LOL

That's Who I Am said...

Cute Blog and congrats on being the SITS feature today:) I changed my comments just for you so that YOU could commment on MY page lol...love your blog and you are adorable!

Mommy said...

OK...how random is your influence over the world? I just changed my settings to pop-up as well, for no other reason than you prefer it that way. LOL!

Happy SITS day!

Rebecca Jo said...

I changed mine just for you!

And look at you -all featured on SITS... I claim you first! For all those that now will follow you - I want to put my stamp of approval & say you were my favorite blogger well before any newbies come on board! :)

Enjoy your SITS day!

*wonders if your Poob Boob post wasn't better after all...*

If you are going to fuss about settings, how's about the NO WORD VERIFICATION thingie too????

I already had my settings for pop up window AND I took a dump, so I would like my prize now. KThanksBye!

Paging Doctor Mommy said...

How exciting that you are the featured blogger for SITS today! WOOOO HOOOO!

Just think, I'll be able to say that I knew you "from way back" when they make you famous after today. (Not that you weren't famous already... you're a rock star!)

I've been thinking of putting advice out there. Thanks for doing it ; -) for all of us.

I prefer a pop up window as then I can go back and reread phrasing or words I might quote in my comment.

Oh! Hapyy SITS Day BTW.

Off to check the rest of your links...

Sarah Jensen said...

Okay, because you say y'all (stop cussing that! I say it 5 million times a day), prefer humping over anything else (me too) and have Blue October on your sidebar, I'm now following you.

I just found SITS and love them. I've found some great blogs bc of them. ;)

And I have a pop up window on my personal blog, but I don't think I can do that on wordpress. I'll check though.

Thanks for a fun read today.

Lins said...

Okay, between you and me, you are the first SITS Feature that has legitimately cracked me up. I'm about to Follow the crap outta you! :)

Happy SITS day, lucky duck.

Oh, and my comments? They were pop-up already. Pop-up comments rule. Now, where's my prize?!

Shawn said...

Happy SITS feature day! I have a full page comment space----does that work? Great blog....enjoy your day!!

LadyStyx said...

I actually prefer a pop up window in the comments because then I can go back and skim the post again. It's also quite helpful so I can easily answer some of the comments on my own blog.

Ms. Wanda said...

I'm going to change it right now! I love the country accent. I moved to Georgia from Jersey and I think my Northern accent is possibly annoying:) I have a tendency to switch my accent when I get around my southern girlfriends, it's all good:)Just joined SITS too, Congratulations!!!

Star Forbis said...

Congrats on being the featured Blogger today! Enjoy. And since my Blog has the pop up comments already, I hope I still get to go to heaven and have all my dreams come true! :)

Bullygrrl said...

It turns out I had it already set to pop up window!! Good to know! Congrats on being featured :) I look forward to reading your future posts.

OceanDreams said...

Ha ha, you are very funny southern lady! Happy SITS day! Yay!

Stalker v1.5 said...

Happy SITS Day and great advice!!

Queenie Jeannie said...

Oh yeah....and since the fine SITS girls picked you, how's about some good ole fashioned NEPOTISM here?!?!? That means you should officially nominate your Big Sis, on the non-Mormon side of the family to be a FB too!!! I'm royalty dammit and I needs me some adulation too!!!! Pooba, Pooba, Pooba...that's all anyone ever talks about......

Fritter Chicks™ said...

Happy SITS day, I almost said SH** just for little ol' you. I was born a southern girl! I live in FL now, and while the southernmost state in the Union, we are not the south.......it's weird.
Your blog is fun........enjoying it! Have a great day.
BTW, I'm a pop up comments kind of gal!

Sandy said...

Just stopping by from SITS to say Happy Day! I guess I already have the pop up feature 'cause you don't see all the comments. Guess I better check!

Yaya said...

Yes! Let's make everyone start posting this until everyone does this!

Kristina P. said...

I'm new to SITS, and I have to say I love your blog!! I just looked through it, and it's great. I'm going to add it to my favorite blogs list on my own blog. I also changed my comments to a pop up window per your wonderful instructions! Thanks for the tip.

Wendy Kae said...

Happy SITS Day.

I've noticed lately that some blogers have changed their blogs so the comments APPEAR at the bottom. What's up with that - hate it. Maybe it's their of giving a little added attention to those who comment. I think we all know how to read the comments if we chose to do so.

Love your blog, by the way.

It's All Good said...

Humping is pretty great isn't it? Congrats on SITS-iness and all!

And good thing I'm going to heaven for my pop-up comment box, cause Im not relying on much else at this point...

Greetings from Los Angeles.

Kristen said...

Congrats! And now let me tell you where you just went wrong. Instead of asking us to change to a pop-up window...you should have asked each of us for 5-10 bucks. New computer for you!

Juls said...

Hey girl, I was just making the rounds..and am so happy it's your Sits day! I don't know ...but I think I have the pop up window dealio....you've commented me before. :)

Woohoo!! Congrats on our SITS day, Chicadee!!

I agree! I wish everyone had the popup window for comments! (and now I'm trying to remember if I do or not. hahaha! I'll be going to find out in a moment. ;0) )

The Red Headed Mama said...

Hi from SITS!!!

I just might go change my comments, just for you :)

Orange Juice said...

Isk8Jewel (~Julie~) said...

Popping over from SITS tonight. Congrats on your day. I didn't know embeded comments could cause such problems since I seem to have issues mostly with the popups but I will try your advice and see what happens. Thanks for the tip! :)

Ashley said...

Changed mine! Thanks for the tip on how to do it!

parentingBYdummies said...

Sorry I'm visiting so late, but I'm here! Lovin' your blog, off to read, read, read:) I love SITS for pointing me to so many awesome bloggers!

scrappysue said...

someone ELSE on my blogroll is the SITS FB! it must be because you're on my blogroll - there can be NO other reason for it.

congrats! now i must check my pop ups!!!

Bee and Rose said...

Happy SITS Day!!! Hooray! You are going to be slammed with comments!! I completely agree with the pop-up window!!! Your accent is adorable!

Kimberly said...

Happy Sits day!

~ A Moxie Mom said...

Happy Sits Day! You are cracking me up. I can't say the word "hump day" without giggling like a 12 year old school boy, my husband is just as bad.

Sue said...

I just discovered SITS today. I have my comments set to embedded maybe I should change it.

Reviewer11 said...

COngrats from a fellow SITSsta. :) Have a terrific week. It's almost Friday.

FrancoB. said...

So many comments, I hope you read mine.
I know about the pop up windows it's so frustrating. Too bad I already had my comments in pop up form, now I won't get to redeem my sins. Heaven is so exclusive, I'll probably would have to sneak in through a back door.
I wanted to join SITS only for the chance of getting a lot of comments one day, but I don't think they take boys :(
I made another vblog, come see it, and I not just saying this because I'm a shameless self promoted whore.

The Redhead Riter said...

Okay, so you same I'm going to heaven and all my dreams will come true? Do I get to choose when I go to heaven and should I give you the list of the dreams? I'm ready! I'll go write my list so make sure you get back to me on that one. Let's see...#1...

Christina said...

Happy SITS Day! Enjoy being the FB.

Happy Belated SITS day!!

I have the same problem with the embedded comments, so I feel your pain.

Christie-A Work In Progress said...

I know I am a day late but congrats on being the featured blog on SITS!! You know I think you are fabulous!!

Debbi said...

ARE YOU FRIKKEN KIDDING ME!?
If, every day, your comment page looks like this, I'm gonna get carpal tunnel syndrome just scrolling down!! You are famous today *(er, yesterday)!! happy SITS day.

And, glad you told the world about your preference for humping! ;)

Those of us who follow you regularly (follow/stalk/love/fantasize about!!! ;) ) already knew you were like that.
Cuz ya'll are just the sh**! :D

KC Mom said...

Congrats on being sauced today!
I checked out your Native Honey handbag blinkie...incredible!

Lindsey said...

HA HA HA!! I just busted laughing out loud at work for the 'I prefer to hump'. Oh you are so funny!

Aleta said...

Happy Featured blog day!

My blog is pop-up friendly
:-)

Julia said...

OK I will humor you on your SITS day of recognition! Whoo hoo... and all that crap. And I got the whole memo on the pop up and all. Yada yada yada.

Now do something funny lady. ;)

3 Bay B Chicks said...

Will you even be able to find me amidst all of these comments, Poob? I'm here! Here I am! I am reaching out to you...don't let go.

Don't ever let go.

(My attempt to quote The Titantic movie may have failed, but I think you get the idea.)

Alexis AKA MOM said...

YEAH girlie, so deserved!!! You know I love ya, hope you get lots of people that stop by. Believe me everyone you won't be sad, she cracks me up with every post. Plus she is an amazing kind person that you'd be lucky to call a bloggy friend!

I so AGREE with the pop up windows! I have so many problems commenting on the embeded ones. Sometimes it works, but most times I can't comment easier. Plus when entering giveaways it makes it so much easier to click back over to view the rules! Instead of going up and down or clicking the back button! I think we need to start the pop-up window movement :) ... LOL.

As for breaks for moms ... it doesn't happen very much in my world :)

Congrats again! XOXO

Mom said...

Hi and congrats on your SITS day!

Life...Exaggerated

Fellow SITS-er....I did as requested and changed to the comment box. :) Your blog cracks me up! I just stumbled on it today but I've already read a whole mess of your ramblings. Quite entertaining I must say!

Debbie said...

Why does your computer do that? That would annoy me to death.

Suzi said...

Happy Hump/SITS Day! Congrats to you, sorry I missed it.

Justine said...

Praise for the pop-up!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also hate the whole page comment thing too. Often I forget what I've just read and need to look it over again. Can't do that with a full page!
Pop-ups, people!

Justine :o )

Gail said...

I wonder if that's the reason so many people are complaining that they can't leave comments on my blog. I changed my setting immediately after reading this. Thanks for the heads up.
