I have learned ...

Over the course of popping into 700 other blogs
1. I use eclamation marks far too frequently!! I'm pretty sure every comment has about a dozen of them!! Mostly two put together for greater emphasis I think!! I'm not really sure why I do, I just do!!!
2. I use the word anyway too often. I'm pretty sure about 80% of my comments have that word in them.

Anyway ... I have had a lot of fun visiting so many fun blogs out there! I have officially visited every blog listed at the Ultimate Blog Party to number 700. Now only 220 to go I think? It has been fun. I have been leaving as many comments as possible, which has also added to my fun. Some sites won't let me leave comments since I'm not a member. Some sites the java won't work on my computer (which actually officially died today. Apparently it was all parties out). And other sites, I'm pretty sure I just couldn't comment on due to my laptop. But I have visited a lot of sites.

I'm pretty overwhelmed with all that visiting. I still want to read them all, but may take a few days off!

And for those of you stopping by here, thank you, THANK YOU for all the nice comments! I am loving this. I do believe I have had more comments in the last few days than in the last few years LOL! I have read each and every one, even yours DeDee! =)
So thank you for coming to visit and saying hi. You've made me day and made me smile!

I am in awe... how much time did you spend everyday... I was not so successful... I blog from my office and I've been real busy these days...

Thanks for stopping by - you read a lot of blogs. I tried to get through the whole list too! I've enjoyed your blog - and have to tell you that I too, use too many exclamation points! :)

MissKris said...

I am SO guilty of exclamation points...and capitalizing...and bold print...but my daughter says it makes my blog sound just like I speak...whatever THAT means, haha! Hey, we have to stay true to ourselves, right?! You read all those blogs??? Good grief, girl! I didn't even dare think about participating with the little bit of computer time I have in a day...it'd take me a month of Sundays -- or more -- to work my way thru almost 1000 blogs. I have a hard enough time keeping up with my regular reads! I am truly impressed with you!

Oh, Brandie! You seem like such a fun person! You are crazy girl. Isn't it great watching our little people grow? They do some of the craziest things! I can't wait to add to my "collection"...or should I say quiver? I don't know...anyway (yeah, I'm guilty on that one too), I am so glad you stopped by and maybe I'll make it my mission to stop by a bunch more blogs too. :D

Wow! You've read a lot of blogs!

I sometimes get carried away with the exclamation points, too! It's hard to avoid them!

Melody said...

Hi Brandie, thanks for stopping by my blog! Wow, I'm impressed to hear you have spent some time going through the list! :) I think that's great and not to mention fun and get to know everyone. Have a great day!

You are awesome! I'm so glad you made it all the way to my comment! :) I'm impressed that you have made it through as may blogs as you have. You are going to have tons of people reading your blog from now on! (I may not use quite as many exclamation points as you, but I'm sure I over do it too!

Nadine said...

I agree. I had loads of fun visiting the different sites. I left comments on all the ones I could. Aren't comments fun? I never had so many before. I've meet so many nice blog people. I'll be back again. I noticed that I wrote...Thanks for sharing a hundred times. :)

Robin said...

Wow..700??????? I lost it at about 8 (lol). The only ones I'm visiting are the kind peeps who came to see me :)--like YOU!

It was daunting, and I was overwhelmed, and LIFE BECKONED!

But, you go, gurrrrrrl, I think you RAWK!

rjlight said...

you've been busy partying! thanks for stopping by my blog although I don't know how you homeschool, visit all the blogs and still have time for crafts!

Angelina said...

Brandie,
Thanks for adding me to your sidebar. I can't believe you've visited that many from the blog party, plus commented. Maybe that is why I only had 12 comments on mine. I visited quite a few, but failed to comment on all of them. I just got back from a tiny vacation so I will get back to the readings. Thanks for visiting.

Donna said...

I wanted to stop by and say hello! Thank you for stopping by my place - I'm trying to visit as many as I can, but life just takes over...I bow down to you - the Party Queen! =)

I laughed when I read you comment about the exclamation points! I LOVE exclamation points! =)

It is really nice to meet you!!!!!!!!! =)

Elaine, on Seinfeld, also likes exclamation points and she once broke up with a perfect boyfriend because he didn't put one after a note about a friend having a baby. This is serious business!!! Anyway, thanks for the visit to my blog and I'm very impressed with your 700 blog visits. I enjoyed my visit here, I'm just sorry all the cheesecake was gone. That's what happens when you're late to a good party. Blessings!
