50th post, 10 questions, 1 mind

Alright so this is my 50th post. I've been a part of this world since March 15, 2006. Many thanks to the first people who came by to comment: Knockout Zed, Nsane Lee Sane, Slish, Missy (then as Ms New Booty), Nikki, and Robin. Who the heck is Robin? LOL.

So as I feel as though I'm a seasoned vet in the blog world, these are 10 things I've noticed for myself throughout these 5 months and decided to ask the blog world if they agree or if i'm on a proverbial island with these. This isn't an official tag, however feel free if you want to make a tag of this, otherwise you can answer any questions in the comments.

10 "You Ever" questions about blogging.

1. You ever think about asking a blogger who has no picture if they could send you one (or a few)?
LOL....oh yeah.....a few people come to mind.......right now on my list is The Mistress. There, I said it.

2. You ever been scared or shy to leave a comment on someone's blog?
Yes. I mentioned this before, but It took me a minute to comment on Nsane's site. She was cursing folks out and I was a bit hesitant. I was thinking "She'll be like who the hell is this Robert Mack dude?" she's one of my favorite people...proof that I think too much sometimes. If anyone is lurking on my blog, don't be scared. Say what up to your boy Rob..

3. Fellas, you ever think that you could be flirting with a man masquerading as a woman on blogger?
LOL! I've thought about it once or twice.

4. You ever have one blogger that you have to check out no matter how busy you are?
Because he writes just about everyday I always check out Zed.

5. You ever feel bad because you can't get to everyone's blog?
I have so much shit on my mind that I cannot get to everyone's blog, and I'll be like "damn I forgot to check them out". And work is crazy now. Back in the day, I would have plenty of time to go to everyone's blog and then some. Now, I'm lucky to have time for my own blog. I try to add people to my favorites' list so that I can see your name and remind myself to check you out.

6. You ever wanted someone, who goes to one person's blog, to come to yours as well without asking?

7. You ever dream about a blogger?
Actually, I haven't yet. Now daydream, that's different. I've had a few of those. Dreaming is the kiss of death for any kind of relationship with me. If I dream about you, that means that the relationship is over or would never start. More on that in another post.

8. You ever feel like delaying your next entry until you get a certain amount of comments from your latest entry?
I always want at least 5 comments from different people before I go on to something else. As always, thanks to all who comment or at least read and may not comment.

9. You ever go to someone else's blog just to get to another blogger's page?
LOL!!!!!!!!! Guilty!!!!!!!!!!! Don't act like I'm the only one.

10. You ever think of how long you'll be doing this?
Yeah I do. There have been times I was ready to give it up, but sometimes after reading a few bloggers, it gave me inspiration to keep going. But I'll be here for at least a year (God-willing) to reflect back. I wonder what will be going on around March of 07.

So Here's to the next 50 posts.
Hopefully more entertaining and maintaining, and less complaining.

Thanks for Reading,
Robert Mack

1. You ever think about asking a blogger who has no picture if they could send you one (or a few)?
Yea, before Zed put the pic up of his nostrils, I had to see what he looked like, and you know I asked you for your pic as well....

2. You ever been scared or shy to leave a comment on someone's blog?
Who was I cussing out ROB? I don't remember that...*lol*
Sometimes I just don't comment cause I don't have nothing to say or what I was gone say was already said...

4. You ever have one blogger that you have to check out no matter how busy you are?
I am with you on this one...

5. You ever feel bad because you can't get to everyone's blog?
I don't feel bad, I just get to it, eventually...

6. You ever wanted someone, who goes to one person's blog, to come to yours as well without asking?

7. You ever dream about a blogger?
Nah....can't wait for your post explaining this one...sounds interesting...

8. You ever feel like delaying your next entry until you get a certain amount of comments from your latest entry?
I sure do!! I want at least 10 comments, I used to get more comments, but now I've noticied people come by like 60 a day and I only have 5 comments...

9. You ever go to someone else's blog just to get to another blogger's page?
You're not the only one...

10. You ever think of how long you'll be doing this?
I always get ready to call it quits, but then something happens and I have to write about it....

I have actually learned a lot about myself from blogging. It started out being something for me and it is going to return to being something for and about me. Love your answers. Honest and funny.

1. Guilty…Brotha Code

2. Nah!! I read a lot of people but I don’t comment because someone said what I was thinking…not because I’m scared though


4. Zed, Slish, T.Cas, Brotha Code and You (no offense to the ladies but I need some testosterone to start my day and then I do my chicas throughout the day as I get free moments.

5. Yeah, I try to always check people who leave a comment on my joint but sometimes my day gets full and I totally forget

6. LMAO!!! Nah never thought of that one…

7. Nope, for some reason if I dream about a man it is someone I can see, touch, hear…blogging is like a whole nother realm for me

8. Nope I just say what I got to when I feel like it


10. I too considered giving it up especially when I got this assignment in ATL but I committed to a year and that is what I’ll do…after that year is up, perhaps on to something different, perhaps not. We’ll see!!!

This was great thinking my child!!! LOL!!

I dont know the address to anyone's page. I usually go through the comments on my own page. Slish ahs just about everyone I check listed on his so I am guilty of that... There is one particular blogger I want to see a picture of.. (she knows). Good post my man !!

Blogger Dynasty said...

I definitely read some people's blog and wonder why some of their readers don't check me out or why they have checked me out, but only posted once, but seem to post on the other blog everyday. What's up with that???

I have to always check you, Missy, Nsane, Zed, Slish and RD out no matter what.

I might jack this for my anniversary tomorrow.

I doubt if I ever fully give it up. I might switch my pages for some anonymity (spelling is jacked) when I reach a certain point in my life. I've actually thought about doing that now.

I think this black blogger world is so freaking small...for heavens sake you can read some folks blog roll and see the same sites. (I don't have a blog roll..need to get one)

You know I gets plenty of nub (love) from the brotha's online so I want to know what they look like...really I want to know what the blunge in their pants looks like *I am a freak*

I do get a bit nervous about the first comment I might leave on someone's page. I don't have a Sitemeter so I really have no idea how many hits I get to my site. Am I missing out on something big?

Hey...I'm saying though, You know I always check you out...don't I always comment on your blog?

Thanks...LOL @ 9.

Bklyn Diva
Yep...I was talking about you! LOL.........I'm fine, just tired. Will write why in my next post. I'm checking you out when I get home, ok?

Yep...its like you see the same people comment on each others' blogs so its like "well let me see what this person is talking about"..and thats how it starts right...

You wasnt cussing no bloggers out, just talking about life and the launguage you were using, and I think you were talking about the ex at one was like wow....I'm not going to talk about the bloggers daydream, but I've been thinking of doing a Rob Mack uncut blog, my version of a true "Beauty is a Beast" blog...

coming soon

oh that sounds hot! lemme reserve that now...LOL...

Miz JJ
You're becoming one of my favs babe...and not because you're complimenting me either. LOL!!!!

3. Please don't make me think that... LOL
4. Yeah, but it switches up every month it seems.
5. I do feel bad,but my list is pretty damn full now.
6. I stole Tenacious from Leon's blog. I don't think she even knows that. LOL

8. All the damn time. I be refreshing my page like why they aint commenting.
