DAVID MCMAHON WANTS TO KNOW

Just visited David McMahon's blog (click the header) and he posed an open question to all bloggers. And the question is: "What do you like most about blogging?" I thought of all the marvelous people who have bothered themselves enough to read and post to my drivel, er, writing, and the fun I've had visiting their blogs and learning different points of view . I thought of its therapeutic value, the laughter, the genuine heartfelt postings that make me feel pleasure in other bloggers writing. The pictures are great, too. (Babzy has wonderful choices on her blog. I wonder if she learned that from David? Nah. Not with her sense of humor.) And a picture of Dubya catching fish in flooded New Orleans is too good to pass up. My personal feeling is that we learn from each other (at least I do). It's good, too, when another blogger is having problems that I think I might be able to help with. And writing deathless prose is good for the ego. At least it is for me. (I hear you laughing out loud, moose.) It seems to me that I cannot pick just one thing, David. There are sooo many more things that I like about blogging. Now y'all get busy and answer his question.

C'mon Cat, it was just a snicker.

I confess Chewy. Me too. A day like today, cold, windy, rainy gives me the excuse to sit in front of the 'puter and save new posts.

moose, I'm having trouble believing that Mooses can snicker.
I know they can wake entire hotels...buit snicker?

Awww Catmoves, you're so nice. David's pictures are stunning whereas mine are a bunch of crap thrown together to help me make a point. But hey I'll take a compliment anytime.

You wrote "...its therapeutic value, the laughter, the genuine heartfelt postings..." and "It's good, too, when another blogger is having problems that I think I might be able to help with."

I couldn't agree more. I think I've said more than a few times that blogging and the people I've met (my little blog family) have helped me in many ways. I think we can say it has done the same for many others.

BTW Mooses snicker. They curl up their big moosey lips and snicker. AND they laugh out loud but that's not pretty.

Babzy, your pictures making points and giving us laughs and thoughts are great to me.
David uses photography as art. And it very definitely is art.
Mooses snicker, for sure? And laugh? Shudder.

Hey , are you two picking on me? Snicker!!

Catmoves said...

Uh, oh Babzy. moose seems to be getting paranoid. Maybe we should calm him down and claim it was generic mooses we were speaking of?
Do those kind snicker?
