Funny your Friday Fives are about blogging. I decided to do some catching up on some I haven't visited in a while and yours was one I came to. We have been having exceptionally cool weather here in Ca., but im not complaining. Hubby is working out of town during the week and we go home on weekends, looking forward to seeing the grandkids.
1. I used to visit about 20 regularly, but lately have gotten behind.
2. Usually try to limit it to an hour a day, but get carried away more often than not.
3. If I have the time, I try to comment. I always have something to say.
4. I love personal ones and reading about others families. Love new recipies. Decorating ideas are always fun. I love inspirational stories.
5. Doesn't bother me a bit finding out what other women do to further their business ventures.
6. I am feeling happy today about going home and seeing my grandkids.

Enjoy cooking for and spending time with your son this weekend, Suzanne. Fun catching up with you.

1. How many blogs do you read? Is your blog list longer than your ARM??? :D
I read as many as possible...I have an extremely long list of good blog friends as well as new blogs that I am just becoming familiar with.

2. How much time do you spend on your blog?
Way to much and not as much as I'd like. How's that for a PC answer.

3. How often do you leave comments?
I try to comment on every blog I read. I think it is courtesy...if you don't comment it's like visiting someone and not speaking to them at all. A Southern Lady would Nev-ah do that!

4. What do your favorite blogs have that you like? What do you dislike?
I love beautiful pictures of homes and gardens. Interested in how people live and interact day to day. I don't like folks who ramble just to hear themselves talk. It is not genuine. Hate preconceived.

5. Does it bother you when people blog about their businesses??
Depends on whether it is helpful, relavant and timely. Oftentimes your business is a big part of who you are.

and for bonus today!!!
6. What makes you HAPPY today???
Family always makes me happy. Knowing they are happy and well is what is important to me.

1. I go in spurts. When my google reader tells me I have more than 1000, I just click "mark all as read" and start over.
2. Not nearly enough time, but then that's why I love summer!
3. I like to comment if I think the author will write back. But just to be one of a zillion....what's the point?
4. I like real people who aren't afraid to be honest. I also like variety - that's what keeps me coming back.
5. Nope!
6. Reading "Green Eggs & Ham" to a little blonde cutie all snuggled in my lap. He doesn't stay still for long and when he does I take advantage of it.

Howdy Neighbor! Let's see if I can answer these questions.
1. I don't have a lot of time for blog hopping, but I love reading blogs, and I probably have about 100 blogs I am regularly behind on reading.
2. Just like number one, I don't have much time to work on my blog anymore. At most I post once a week, but lately it's been more like every two or three weeks.
3. I usually only comment when I read something I really enjoy, when I'm visiting a blobby friend, or when I'm visiting a blog of someone that has left a comment with me. I try to comment whenever I can, but some times I'm busier than others.
4. My favorite blogs always have pictures. I'm very visual, and I like a lot of eye candy. I like a lot of different types of blogs though.
5. Not really. If it's not something I want to read about, I just don't read it.
6. Today I am happy because I'm in transit to Miami where I will be getting on a cruise ship to the Caribbean islands. In the meantime, I have a little time to catch up on my favorite blogs. :)

1. A lot, not sure the number.
2. Very little
3. Not too often. As many as I read it's would take too long to comment on all. And, evidently there's blog rules/etiquette as to what kind of comment we should leave. :o really? I don't think I'm clever enough to leave a unique comment on every post I read.
4. Thrifting finds, garden pictures, crafts ideas. I'm not particularly fond of blogs that only post pictures from magazine websites.
5. Nope, blogging is an excellent tool to build a business.

and for bonus today!!!
6. Saturday morning breakfast date with the hubby.
