Blog Comments: I Want to Hear From You!

I am popping up today to say hello!  FullSizeRender{now it’s your turn….}

That’s my subtle way of asking for blog comments!  I know I usually Sound Off! on Fridays, but my plans got waylaid.

I blog because I have a lot of pent-up creativity.  I need to share my love of sketches and doodles, handmade hairdresser gear, trendy haircuts and colors, the 100-year-old farmhouse makeover, and all the other blessings in my life so I don’t explode with the thrill of it all.  Do you enjoy reading it? {your turn again!} I love life, and I’m not afraid to show it.  Is that a bad thing? {be gentle…}

I started blogging for a multitude of reasons.  I love to put my thoughts into written word, although I prefer actually writing by hand over typing.  This will do, though.  Also, I’ve wanted an online portfolio for my work in the salon for quite some time.  This blog serves as a perfect outlet for all the things I do behind the chair that challenge me, excite me, and keep me loving what I do.  Lastly, I have a lot of family who live far away, and I love having a place for them to keep up with what’s happening in our lives.  I really do want to build a strong readership, including my friends and family.  My goal is not to be a writer, but a blogger.  All bloggers are not trolls or opinion-shovers…some of us just like to share interesting stuff with whomever enjoys following along.  Do you read any blogs on a regular basis?  Do you prefer blogs that are light, positive and entertaining, or are you a sucker for a political, radical, daring blogger?  {Do you know what a blog is? If not, Google it!  There’s a wealth of information online!} Here are a few of my favorite blogs:

Posy Gets Cozy  Cozy doesn’t begin to describe this blog!  I love the photos (great nature and food photog!), the stories, the cute stuff she makes…it’s a great read every time.

Hi, Sugarplum! Fun, bubbly, stylish, and happy come to mind when I think of this blog.  I’m always entertained, and I love her style!

The Small Things Blog This is a blog that I have subscribed to for years, and it never dulls for me.  I love this blog’s clean, crisp look, her photography, her hair how-to videos, and her cute, all-American smile.

Lifestyles with Lia This happy blogger can take you through the streets of NYC and show you real, street-view angles of all the best sights New York has to offer!  Her prose is fantastic…funny and intriguing!  Definitely pay her a visit, and follow her on Instgram to see lots more!  Her food photography will make you drool!

Nutsrok By far one of the best storytellers out there, and her stories about the South of her youth will absolutely keep you in stitches!  Her adorable and sassy Mama illustrates her hilarious stories!  I am never without something to read with this lady at the keyboard.

Jimmie’s World My beautiful sister writes this entertaining blog, and she can take you from laughing tears, to real ones!  Her descriptions of the events of her life are so unique (we’ve always said that Jimmie makes up her own language as she goes along), and she has a style all her own.  I believe there will be more to come out of this talented writer, who happens to be my next-of-kin.

I want to encourage everyone who reads A Hair In My Biscuit to enjoy life, share your joys, and feel free to comment on mine.  My blogging goals are to continue to grow my readership, share interesting and useful blog content, and increase interaction with my readers.   If I post a recipe that sounds good, but you have an idea that would make it better, comment!  If I start showing off the details of our remodel and you like what you see, let me know!  If you think something else would look better, speak up!  I won’t approve any comments that are hateful or vulgar, but otherwise, I will enjoy reading and replying to your comment.  {Can you tell I want to hear from you?}

What topics do I post about that you enjoy reading the most?

What subjects have bored the snores out of you?

Is there anything you’d like to see more of?  Less of?

Thank you all so much for reading, and please, please, pretty please subscribe, or ‘follow by email’, if you enjoy reading my blog.  Share it with your friends, family and coworkers.  Pin the posts you like to Pinterest, or share on Facebook!  I can’t tell you how giddy it makes me  to see that someone has read and enjoyed my post, or passed it along on social media! FullSizeRender (1)I hope to bring more and more to the party, and keep things rockin’ at A Hair In My Biscuit!  Thank you all so much for reading, liking, and commenting, because it makes all the hard work that goes into this blog so worthwhile.  I appreciate you!

X,O,X,O,  Martie
