Advice Forum Friday...What would you do?

Have I mentioned that I've been sick? Yeah, with the epizootus. So I totally spaced yesterday and forgot to post Advice Forum Friday. I know, I'm not a very good hostess. I, I know that I've been discouraged because even though I LOVE asking other people's opinion, it seemed that no one else much liked the idea.

But then Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer added a backwards twist to WFMW, which made it just like Advice Forum Friday. So I'm thinking she likes the idea. And then a grillion people said what a great idea it was when she did it, so I guess they liked the idea. And she scheduled another backwards WFMW for next month, so she still likes the idea.

And here's what I'm thinking. I have like 40 readers and 8 commenters, and Shannon has a bajillion readers and eleventy hundred commenters. And my friend Kristin said maybe I should just take the high road and bow out.

What do you think?

I love the idea of your advice forum...but when I asked a question, it didn't get I gave up ;) Good luck!!! I still love reading your blog!

Are you talking about bowing out of the Advice Forum? Sorry, I never did it, cause I couldn't think of a question, but I liked reading everyone elses. I guess I was a stalker. Stick with it if you enjoy doing it. Don't worry, it will eventually pick up!

Well, I actually like the idea too, and I'm one of the few who doesn't participate in WFMW, so I'm more likely to "play" here if I could think of questions! I was quite annoyed at myself last week, as on Mon. or Tues. I actually thought of a good question, but like a dope, didn't write it down. Come Friday, I couldn't remember it for the life of me -and still can't! How pathetic am I? I say do what you like, all these ideas probably start out small in the beginning anyway. If you like doing it, keep it up. And I PROMISE, when I can think of questions, I'll play along! But if it's more trouble than it's worth, or it makes you feel bummed, then it's your prerogative to stop too! Either way, I'm still around! :o)

Keep doing it! I don't know what WFMW is, but why does it matter? I read MANY blogs and intend to start my own as soon as I can figure out how (LOL, don't hold your breath on that one), and if someone liked my idea and decided to use it, I would be flattered.

I posted on works for me wednesday (probably because of the herd mentality) and I got several responses. You could try having Shannon link to you in a post..."If you like WFMW then try Advice Forum Friday" kind of thing. Your a regular reader of hers so its worth a try.

Even if that doesn't work, don't give up. It takes a while for things to catch on.
