A Poll

True or False :

Married people comment blogs more frequently than singletons.

I have my theories, but I'm going to let you battle it out in the comments. Discuss.

Dood. I comment a lot. I don't know many married people who comment.

Those are my arguments.

Nat Attack said...

Ha! Good point Whit. I'm not necessarily talking just my blog; but personal blogs in general.

Jody said...

True. Although, most of my blogging friends are married, so most of my comments are from married people. To be truly unbiased, I would have to have an equal number of single and married blogging friends. That's all I can offer.

trentathon said...

I agree with Jody's analysis, but I'm the opposite. I pretty much get no marrieds comments

ju said...

my husband and i comment all the time.

Whits said...

Yes yes Nat, I did mean on not just your blog. I comment on a lot of blogs but I dont know many married people who comment. But then again, I only have a few friends that are married.

Cabra Forte said...

I generally just lurk. But I have to get in a +1 for the marrieds in this case.

Angie said...

Haha! I would be interested to read your theory.

I'm a big-time lurker too. Most of the comments on my blogs are from marrieds, since most of the people who read my blog are married. Are you factoring in the whole "kids" thing too? Because I think that makes a difference. I think married+kids=comments, but married-kids=no comments. But now I'm trying to think if I even know anyone who's married without kids.

Oh, wait... Stephanie--and she DOES comment. Oh, who knows... lol

Alaina said...

I think Angie hit on something with the kids theory. We have something to connect on.

My comments are nearly ALL marrieds. Even my single sisters don't comment anymore.

maWeesa said...

duh.. married people don't have anything else to do....

Mallory Jan said...

That was a low blow alaina.

haha

Alaina said...

We're waitin' for your theories Nat!

Mary B said...

I think it depends on how much the married couple hangs out. More hang-out-time = less down-time = less commenting. AND shouldn't Angie's comment about the marrieds + kids thing be the opposite? Married + kids = less time = less commenting. Maybe I'm just drowning in my three!

Erica said...

All right, Nat. You can't get off easy--we've gotta hear your theories. :)

ju said...

please blog again.

Breona said...

Idk. Really, but I guess more married people comment on mine? But I don't think its always a time or kid issue?. Maybe they feel a need to stay in touch more because once married you don't really hang out or call people as much?.

Laura said...

I have been married for... 6 weeks. I have posted 3 comments in that time. All of which have been today.

Before I was married, I did about the same. I think it's generally a function of (a) access to the internet and (b) need for adult interaction. Today I need lots, apparently.

Definitely, maybe, probaby related posts:
