Questions for My Readers

I thought it might be fun to have a little interaction with the blog, so I’m posing some questions to you, my fabulous readers. Post your responses as comments, and leave a link to your blog as well, so people can visit your blog, too! And if you have some questions you’d like me to answer, leave those in the comment also. Let the comments begin!

1. Do you prefer to reply to people’s comments on your blog by replying on their blogs, or on your own blog (does this question even make sense)? I’ve seen it done both ways, but it seems that most bloggers respond to comments within their blog, and I have always done the opposite. Is there some sort of blogging etiquette I should be aware of? What would you have me do?

2. What is one TV show you’ve watched this summer that you would recommend?

3. What is one book you think I should definitely read?

4. What is one blog you read that I should read, too?

5. What is one grammar rule you’ve never understood?

6. What is one pet peeve that drives you absolutely nuts?

7. What is your favorite Scripture passage or verse?

8. If you could go anywhere in the world (all expenses paid), where would you go?

9. On a scale of 1 to 5, how would you rate my blog? (With 1 being I really like it and 5 being I really really really really like it.)

10. Where did the word napkin come from?

  2. 1. I prefer to reply to comments left on my blog, on my blog. Keeps it in context, easier for people to read rather than people having to hop around to different blogs to follow the conversation.2. On the Lot and Shaq’s Big Challenge.3. Deception Point, Dan Brown.4. I think you read all the blogs I do.5. Apostrophes on people’s names that end in ‘s’. That and I can never remember if alot is one word or two, but irregardless…6. People with a sense of entitlement.7. Romans 8:38-40, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”8. I think I’ll have to ditto Steven and say the Holy Land.9. Awesome. 10. Obviously, the etymology of the word we know as napkin was derived in the year 1420 from 2 separate words: the Old French ‘nappe’ meaning ‘tablecloth’, and the Middle English word ‘kin’ meaning ‘little’.

  3. 1. I do both. I like to answer them on my own blog to keep things in context, but sometimes I’m afraid the commenter won’t see my reply because they might not come back to look for a response. So, in that case…I am sometimes guilty of responding on that person’s blog. 2. I got hooked on “The Next Food Network Star.” I hate reality TV, but I love Food Network and I actually followed the whole season, which is unusual for me. 3. You should definitely read “Feminine Appeal” by Carolyn Mahaney. Wow. 4. How about http://www.girltalk.com? It’s one I read every so often, and is partially authored by the aforementioned author.5. Not ending sentences with a preposition. It’s hard not to! 😉6. Pets dressed as humans. Hands down.7. I think this changes all the time. Right now I’m really loving meditating on Lamentations (especially chapter 3), and Hosea 6:1 (kept in context of course).8. England. Or Italy. Wait–if it’s paid for, then BOTH.9. Five! (What else!?)10. Napkin comes from the Latin words “nape” and “kin”, “nape” referring to the neck, where a napkin is sometimes tucked to catch spills while eating. “Kin” referring to cloth. (yeah, I totally made that up. whatever.)This was interesting!Thanks for including me in your blog roll. I’ll do likewise!-glenna-
