Once upon a time, back when I first started my blog, I kicked ass at leaving comments on other blogs and I would always reply to comments I would have on my site. After awhile I got what I like to call comment constipation. Yeah, ewwww. I know...I'm sorry.

I want to comment, I love to comment, but no matter how hard I try, nothing comes out.

Sidenote...I can’t believe I compared my inability to comment to constipation.

Anyway, I do read several blogs but then when I look at the comment section, I freeze up and think agggghhh, what the hey should I say without sounding so lame?

Sure, I say some of the dumbest crap-ola on my own blog but that’s different. There’s also a lot of times when everyone who’s commented on someone’s post has said pretty much everything that I was going to say. So, then I’m left with my 3 options; "LOL" or "Hahaha" or "So sorry, that sucks" or (((HUGS))

If there’s more that I feel I need to say in my comment, it’s like my brain liquifies and I just skip making a comment. But I’m getting better. I’m back to reading and discovering more blogs and pushing myself to comment no matter how lame I may sound.


  1. I know what you mean though sometimes. There are certain topics or posts where I overthink every possible response, worried I might offend or come across as too...something. In the end though, I just know how supported I feel with each comment I receive and try to return that, regardless of how dumb I sound. Your comments are always appreciated Janet, and never lame!

  2. I struggle with this also! I can't related to every topic that someone blogs about and therefore I don't know what to say.

  3. I find that most people have already said what I was going to say. So now I don't read what people have said anymore and just comment. Because I myself, sometimes need to hear the same thing over and over :)

  4. Kharini is speaking the truth!! I know that for me, if 14 people say the same thing...well, that means it's probably something I need to be thinking about/doing/whatever! So don't hesitate just because someone else already said it!!

  5. I sometimes worry that I am going to say something that upsets the blogger instead of making them feel better!!

  6. You are hilarious- comment constipation...hahaha, I love it! You are far from lame, my friend. Your comments always brighten my day! Thinking of you! Xoxox

  7. I would take your constipated comments any day :) I'm with everyone else. Sometimes all you can say is Congratulations, or I'm sorry and I'm thinking of you, or (((Hugs))). If 5, 10, or 100 people said the same thing, that's ok. It's better than silence :)

  8. Yes, yes, and yes. I completely agree. I always feel my comments are inadequate. So much so that sometimes I don't comment (now how ironic is that??).

  9. I feel the same way! Sometimes I seriously type out my comment first, then glance at a few of the other ones preceding it, and realize that I've said *verbatim* what's already been said. Ah well, I suppose saying something is better than nothing... For the record though, I like your comments!
