Blogging Polling. And then some.

I consider myself a rather enthusiastic member of BlogWorld. I try to post, I try to give it some meaning, sometimes it's just teasing... But, let's leave that aside. I also read a lot of blogs, predominantly here on LJ, which seems to be rich and abundant enough. And I think that with time some rather distinctly diverse "bloggers classes". So, here's a poll. Help me find out if this is approximately true picture of BlogWorld around us.

And discuss, please.

i get lost in acronyms but i get what you mean.

twitter, politics and hate-talk turn me off.

i like interesting stuff, places, people, things, even food sometimes.
hot stuff and geeky stuff is alright too, but too much focus on television or any one thing really, is blah.

your journal is great.
it's a busy time in my life right now, so i post more than read, but i'm always happy to see what you have to say and share, Tomaz..and when i get settled in my new home here in a couple weeks, you can expect a package..i haven't forgotten :)

I guess the things that make the two of us tick, are in a way similar. I enjoy following your adventures. And life is also busy for me... big things are planned and sometimes I feel like I got caught inbetween Autumn leaves and flashing posts. I need to get back on track. :)

And we are in no hurry, right?

Be well!!!

no hurry at all, altho John Cusack tells me 2012 is the end of the world..
regardless, i'm living on the edge, so to speak, and glad to have a friend on the other side of the world.

call me crazy, but i'd LOVE to come visit sometime.
while in Puerto Rico recently, i was talking to my mom about you and the place you live..she sounded interesting, and loves to travel as well.

where would i start?

Ok....

1. I think my first awake thought was "Oh, idiot, never take another 8-11pm nap again".
2. I needed a low key weekend, needed to recharge. Saturday was lazy, apart from a great stroll in the city, because I wanted to see some Autumn leaves.
3. 2010? That Iggy's and my apt. plans work out. And I want to remain happy as I am now.

sounds like you're fiendish for some stability and level ground.
you must be a busy man.
what, with all that fur flashing and such :P

but i'm with you on all of that, though my path is much different at the moment.

but i think holding onto things is something every man and woman wants.
that, and long naps:)

always happy to hear your thoughts, Tomaz..
you know, i'd love to see a few cute and romantic pictures of you and Iggy :)

I am extremely busy right now yes, but in a way I am enjoying it. Feels good to be in the flow sometimes. Just sometimes.

Romantic pictures.... might happen soon - your 8th is approaching. :)))))

Slovenia and the US are 6-9 hours apart, so it's not too bad. :)

Yes, 8 years is nice... I am a happy man.
