Michael Stagliano’s Bachelor Blog: Episode 7

Hello Everyone!

Glad to have you all back for another re-cap. I HAVE to start of this week by saying: thank you. A BIG THANK YOU. The love and support for Emily and I made last week super special. We are crazy happy and all the kind words, comments, tweets, just added to that…WHAOW! Thank you!


Let’s get to it!

Sean and the girls arrive by seaplane to the insanely beautiful island of St. Croix and coming out of Canada, the sunshine, the beach and all around POSITIVE vibe is-ah-flowing!

Jumping right in, AshLee gets the first one-on-one date….which I am mildly excited about. As soon as I learned she was getting it I immediately braced myself for LOADS of conversation about “trust.” Adding to my weariness is Sean showing up in a solid pastel-orange button down, and umm… white and black wide-stripped swim trunks… What the WHAT!?!?

AshLee is very excited to see him, they make their way down to a beach, swim out to a Catamaran, head to a private island and BAM… AshLee delivers what will prove to be the finishing blow to the monster that has become Tierra.

A few things to point out:

1. I don’t think any other girl in the house could have delivered it to Sean like AshLee did. She did NOT bring it up, she waited to be asked, then shared her honest opinion. She didn’t bash on Tierra, or make it an attack…she just shared what she observed.

2. You could see light bulbs going off in Sean’s head, finally.

3. You could tell the message was well received because the next thing they did was: make-out in the sand, make-out in the water… then make out in the sand with the water splashing over them. Hahaha. Huge points for AshLee.

4. At night: she says she can see him as her husband… and though it wasn’t my favorite moment, her screaming that she loves Sean was kind of cute (4 out of 10). Anyways, I don’t think AshLee does things for attention… it just seemed a little forced (in the context of this show) to have to tell Sean about things like “trust” (the scarf) and “love” (the scream)… if you have to do it with a “thing”… Am I wrong? I’d also like to point out that the FIRST time you tell someone you love them, isn’t it a bit much if you are SCREAMING it at them??? Also, it reminded me of a Jewelers commercial… remember? That dude screams it outside the steps of some place outside… I don’t know… Schmee, schmerr…It’s sweet but… That’s all.

5. We learn that AshLee was married when she was 17. Holy Lord, I did NOT see that one coming. Also, something to point out here. I DID NOT LIKE how much she built it up… She kept saying, “Ok, I just want to say it. And be done. Here it is. There is something I want to tell you. And… Ok. I am going to say it…. And it is really hard, for me. Because, I want to say it and just… I don’t want it to ruin anything… and OK… So here it comes… I am going…” After 45 seconds of this I was about ready to POP. JUST SAY IT. I was HONESTLY half expecting her to say, “When I was 15, I killed my mom.” I’m SERIOUS! That is how worried I was because of HOW MUCH she built it up. Unnecessary, IMO.

Moving on.

Tierra gets a one on one, which, for me, is the EXACT SAME feeling as strapping into “It’s A Small World After All” at Disney land: Let’s hurry up and get it over with.

She rolls her eyes about her one-on-one. “It will be hot and sweaty, and gross.” She wishes it would be on the water, like AshLee’s date.

We all just wish she wouldn’t talk anymore.

Something HILARIOUS happened, that made Desiree look a little on the slow side but, I HAVE to point it out because it made me laugh out loud. Lindsay (I think) reads the date card, which says something to the effect of: “Tierra, let’s walk around the streets of St. Croix…” A moment passes, then Desiree blurts out, “Oh my GODs! Tierra, I BET you are going to walk around the streets of St. Croix!!!” Hahahaha. OH, Captain Obvious that was fantastic. I NOW KNOW who asked if the goat was a dog in Montana (remember?)… Thank you Desiree!

They walk around the streets (as per date card). Sean buys her some jewelry. Tierra is GLOWING. They dance in a parade. Sean is checked out and uber concerned about what AshLee told him about Tierra the day before. The sun sets and they move to the night portion of the date. She starts blurting things out like, “I don’t have to like the other girls, they aren’t going to be around!” and “I feel like I am behind in the game.” And for ME, that was where I started to get insanely mad. It’s not a f*cking game. There are no points, there aren’t teams, and there isn’t a field or a court or a referee. So for to her to talk about it, TO SEAN, as a game – this made me mad.

Further to my dismay, she starts talking about how she is falling for him. Sean is MILDLY interested in this, and what’s worse – LITERALLY 5 MINUTES BEFORE, she was in an interview talking about how sweet it is that a guy would buy her something on their FIRST DATE!!! WHAT THE F? There is absolutely nothing genuine coming out of her lips, and the episode isn’t even halfway over!

THANK GOD – we move on to a group date, which starts off SO COOL. They did this on Ben’s season… where The Bachelor arrives at 4am and wakes the girls up, no-make-up, totally surprised – I LOVE IT. It immediately gives you the sense that something awesome is about to happen.

Suspicions are confirmed! They hop in a Jeep and race the sun, to be the first 4 people in America to see the sunrise. SUPER DOPE! (And it starts a race across the island to see the sunset… SUCH a cool idea.)

Let’s break it down by girl:

Lindsay: LOTS more kissing and googly eyes. These two LIKE each other A LOT.

Catherine: OK!!! Ok. Ok. OK!!! I get it. This was a turning point for me with Catherine. We obviously got to see a deeper side to her in her and Sean’s conversation about her father. Super emotional, Catherine couldn’t even look at him! It was really sad hearing about her family situation and it was nice seeing genuine, normal, natural conversation between the two of them.

Desiree: Nothing new brought to light, except that she is VERY CLOSE to her family. So close, that she cries just thinking about them. After their time together I think it is 100% safe to say that she will get a rose, if not during the date, FO-SHO at the Rose Ceremony.

The rose DOES end up going to Lindsay. First hometown rose is out!!

Leslie has the final one-one-one.

They go…Avocado picking…I guess.

Yea, super boring date. They just kind of walk around and talk in a bunch of different locations.

Now, while we have some hope that the CONVERSATION might save the day by being entertaining/light/funny/ or heartfelt/endearing/emotional – Unfortunately, none of those things happen. Interviewing, Leslie gushes about how she is falling in love, and never understood how the girls on the show COULD fall in love, but now she is one of them. Even more UNFORTUNATE is that she literally, can’t even look him in the eye. It is kind of cute, but it also feels like we are watching her on the edge of a cliff just waiting to see if she is going to jump. Instead of jumping, she lays down. She does NOT say the “L” word… But she DOES get a super passionate romantic KISS with Sean… and I gotta say… after they kiss, and she took that deep breath in, and almost looked drunk… THAT is a pretty good sign of LOVE my friends.

(I get that feeling if Emily even kisses me on the cheek… let alone when we lock lips.)

The date doesn’t go badly, it just doesn’t go well.


Back at the house Tierra and Ashley are GOING AT IT…

…Arguing…not…not the other thing.

Let’s be honest, the conversation was pretty hard to follow. Not surprisingly, Tierra was being super defensive, playing the victim, SCREAMING about how she doesn’t have to sabotage relationships and get herself to the top because and I quote, “Girls are just jealous, men love me!” This was one of the ugliest things I have seen on this show. Someone that self-centered and unaware of what they sound like – YIKES!!! She storms off, only to storm BACK in to another room and continue the fight, “making outrageous claims like she invented the question mark…” Seriously, sh*t got loony. But it seems like AshLee delivered a staggering blow when she simply told Tierra. “I DIDN’T SAY A WORD, UNTIL SEAN ASKED!”

Mixed in with all of this are shots of Sean talking to his sister who is giving REALLY GOOD ADVICE. Sean decides to bring Tierra to meet her, goes to the house to get her, only to find her crying, distraught, huddled on her cot in isolation, playing the victim again. THIS TIME… you can just tell on his face that HE… IS… OVER IT!

She whimpers through her hands and her tears, trying to explain how hard it is and what happened… It is just too little too late… and in what is undoubtedly one of my favorite moments for a Bachelor in the history of the show, Sean sends her PACKING! It was AWESOME! This totally re-confirmed that we have a good guy at the head of the ship. I LOVE IT. I think anyone watching LOVES IT.

Ding dong… the witch is dead…

NOW LOOK. As much as I DID want Tierra to go, and I DO think everything that was happening to her was her own fault, it does always pull on me a little bit to see someone crying that much, and who is THAT hurt. I am sure that the last 3 months or so have been really difficult for Tierra, watching this all back. Imagine having your friends and family watching all of this???

… Esh…

While I don’t condone any of her actions, it HAS to be hard to have 7-10 million people hating you so I feel for her a little bit because of that…

SO… No cocktail party.

Enter rose ceremony…

Enter Chris.

Enter Sean in another grey suit. Is he going to wear a black one of these times…or no?

4 roses to give out to 5 girls.

Leslie gets the boot.

And while I totally saw them hit it off at the beginning of the season, it did feel like the other girls’ relationships with Sean progressed a lot more than hers. Leslie was absolutely one of my favorites. Sad to see her go :(

But hometowns are up next, and holy crap it looks like a rough week ahead. Is there going to be a FIGHT for the first time in the history of the show!?!?! I THINK SO! DAYUMN!!

THANK YOU for reading as always! Go put my music on your iPod and I’ll love you forever. Even if you don’t, we can still be friends. Itunes.com/michaelstagliano

  1. First comment? Fun!

    I have three things to say:

    1.) I legit said the EXACT same thing when Tierra left… “ding-dong the witch is dead”. Hilarious.
    2.) Your comments about AshLee building it up so much you thought she was gonna tell him she killed her mom… HAHAHA! Dying. So funny. And so true! Way too much build up.
    and. 3.) Michael, it’s a real shame you and I aren’t friends in real life. We’d have some good laughs FOR SURE.

    Oh, and super happy for you and your engagement! Ok.. that was 4 things!

    Keep the hilarity coming! Love it.

  2. I have to say I really like AshLee. She tried to have a fair discussion with Tierra about it.
    However, I don’t think AshLee is the one for Sean, she is not bubbly enough for him. Does not mean she is not a great girl though, she seems like she has the biggest heart, so I hope she is the next Bachelorette :)

    Love your blog Michael!

    Comment by Maya — February 12, 2013 @ 11:21 am

  3. Hello Michael,

    Great Blog, as usual! When you said Tierra being sent home was one of your all time favorites, I couldn’t help but revist William’s exit in Ashley’s season. OMG that was so hilarious I actually rewinded it and watched it several times. He was so, “Oh hi there rose” Then got sent packing. That was the best! Tierra’s was good too. I feel like she was a little bi-polar, or bi-something. On the date she was so over the top with her dancing and literally screaming, “I am the happiest girl alive” She was totally manic. Then did you also notice that while she was crying into her hands when he came to the house 1: She did not have any tears. 2: Once he said he had someone for her to meet she was like, “oh yeah, haha, who? haha” with a semi smile on her tearless face.


    Anyway, have a great week!


    Comment by Heather — February 12, 2013 @ 12:05 pm

  4. Stag – you are the man. Obviously I do not know you, but I’m SO happy for you that you’ve found love – YOU DESERVE IT.

    And speaking of deserving it… while I completely agree that it’s got to be hard for Tierra and her friends/family to be watching for these last bunch of weeks… the truth is, she acted that way. We all make choices every day, how we act, how we treat people, etc. Maybe she’s regretting her choices, maybe she will complain and blame the ‘edit’ – but the fact remains, she is responsible for her actions. Her actions weren’t very nice, so any response/embarassment/pain that comes from watching it back on national television is deserved. Sorry Tierra! I don’t know Sean (wish I did!) but it was plain to see all that drama, fakeness and immaturity is NOT for him. I can’t believe he endured it for as long as he did. I wish her luck finding a guy who does want to deal with that!

    And wish you lots of luck and love too!

    Comment by Jamie — February 12, 2013 @ 12:21 pm

  5. I am glad you have warmed up to Catherine! I think she is so great and will make whoever she marries very happy. Tierra leaving was the happiest part of the episode for me. Internally I was crying tears of joy. Thanks for another great blog!

    Comment by Beth H. — February 12, 2013 @ 12:24 pm

  6. Hi Michael,
    First off, congratulations on your engagement! That is super cool, and I hope you and Emily will have many happy years together. (I will admit, though, that I was hoping you’d be The Bachelor one of these days!)

    And here’s my take on Tierra–ditto “ding dong the witch is dead”–perfect…she is such a toxic person that I’m glad Sean heeded his sister’s advice (unlike Ben with his sister) and sent her home. As to the other ladies: AshLee is sweet, kind, and just not Sean’s goofy and/or bubbly type, plus she has all of her trust issues; Catherine has too much bagagge family wise, and after last night’s previews may not be ready to settle down; Lindsay is cute and goofy and does seem to like kissing Sean, but as you and the rest of the long married world know, there’s a lot more to making a relationship work; finally, I really like him with Des–she is fun, has a good sense of humor, but can be serious, and has that sense of family that seems to be so important to him in the long run.

    Sorry I made this so long, but just wanted to add to your already sage observations about this season so far. I really look forward to reading your blogs–keep up the good work!

    PS: Your Emily isn’t the same girl from Ben’s season, is she?

    Comment by Ginny — February 12, 2013 @ 12:28 pm

  7. “She whimpers through her hands and her tears, trying to explain how hard it is and what happened…” There were NO tears. It was all just an act. All I could do was roll my eyes. She’s pathetic.

    Congrats to you and Emily!

    Comment by Annette — February 12, 2013 @ 12:35 pm

  8. Loved the blog as always!
    I agree about it being hard for Tierra to watch this with her family & friends…..however, with what we have seen from Tierra – I don’t believe she has any shame or believes she does anything wrong. I am almost certain, even as of today, she is still blaming everybody else for HER actions. Her arrogance is at such a level – it is very puzzling. She is actually making Courtney from Ben’s season look like a saint. EEK
    And……Love Love Lindsey, super genuine and sweat.

    Comment by Katie — February 12, 2013 @ 12:43 pm

  9. When you hit things on the head you TOTALLY hit things on the head. The only thing I disagree with is Catherine. I felt bad for her with the father story but still don’t see the connection between them. I liked Leslie a lot but it wasn’t meant to be. I am curious to see how it all shakes out now.
    I will admit that I am a bit sad for the Tierra show to be over. She was so totally fun to so totally dislike.
    The previews for next week are REALLY SOMETHING.
    Sean is a great guy and deserves to be happy but can I just say I am SO THRILLED for you. Will have to keep saying it cause I am very happy for you!

    Comment by Claudia — February 12, 2013 @ 1:18 pm

  10. This was by far your best blog. i enjoyed every single word! Thank you. You are a very talented writer and I’M looking forward to reading your next one.

    Comment by Bobbie — February 12, 2013 @ 1:36 pm

  11. Hey Michael! Excellent blog as usual! And congratulations on your engagement! You and Emily are just the sweetest thing :)

    Here’s my question.

    Your signature “WHOAW!!”; how exactly does that sound? Whenever I read it in my head it sounds like “WAH HOO!” But I don’t think that’s right. Just curious. :)

    Super sad to see Lesley go, she was my favorite! She’s my vote for the next bachelorette!

    Comment by Kyla — February 12, 2013 @ 2:37 pm

  12. I’m happy you finally see the chemistry between Sean & Catherine! I’ve been reading each week waiting for you to change your mind!! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts about hometowns, hometowns are always the best episodes!

    Comment by Carmela — February 12, 2013 @ 3:26 pm

  13. Another good one, Michael! Thanks.

    Comment by Jessie — February 12, 2013 @ 3:40 pm

  14. I would like to point out that when Tierra was throwing her hissy fit, she was fake crying. not one tear came out of her eyes, and Dr Phil says that, that is a sign of a liar face.

    Comment by Paola — February 12, 2013 @ 5:36 pm

  15. No thoughts on the bizarre reaction from Catherine when Leslie was booted? That threw me. Also I can’t believe you let the “I can’t control my eyebrow” jokes pass. Anyhow congrats “putting a ring on it” your happiness is inspiring.

    Comment by Jessica — February 12, 2013 @ 5:53 pm

  16. During the build up of AshLee’s back breaking news last night, I wondered “Is she going to say she killed her mom?” and my friends thought I was nuts. I am so glad that you did too! Also, I totally remember that jewelry commercial and it definitely was similar to that. Could this be foreshadowing on the producers part? Hmmm…

    Comment by Leila — February 12, 2013 @ 6:31 pm

  17. Your blog makes my entire day. Love. :)

    Comment by Katie — February 12, 2013 @ 7:28 pm

  18. Congratulations on the engagement! Emily is really beautiful. She’s got that natural beauty and you two make such a cute couple! Can’t wait to see wedding pictures!

    Good points this week! I really like Ashlee, but sometimes she seems a little creepy? Like she would kill to protect… Maybe intense is a better word ;-)

    Comment by Josefine — February 13, 2013 @ 1:47 am

  19. Now I have to think different about Sean-Catherine too, she is a really good mix between playful and serious. I think this season is going like Emily’s season: Lindsay- Arie the kisser female version, Ashlee – Sean’s version, and Dez vs Cat – Jef’s version(in my opinion!)
    Anyway, good blog, and your comment about your girlfriend(oh now fiance ^^) kissing you is TOO CUTE!
    Thanks, love ya.

    Comment by Lam — February 13, 2013 @ 5:33 am

  20. I would imagine it can get tense and tiring, and am putting Catherine’s comments down to possible exhaustion, intense questioning by producers or alcohol. The producers do some really creative editing, and some of it is downright misleading. Plus, from what I’ve read she and Lesley started a great friendship.

    Comment by Jessie — February 13, 2013 @ 5:44 am

  21. Another fantastic blog Michael! Loved the “ding dong the witch is dead” line!! Hilarious!

    Comment by Michelle — February 13, 2013 @ 7:19 am

  22. I think Ashlee is creepy/intense also. Like she belongs in a lifetime movie, about a woman seeking revenge. Too serious for Sean!

    Comment by Sarah O — February 13, 2013 @ 10:39 am

  23. Hi Michael, I love reading your blogs and look forward to them every week. I think you’re the cutest thing ever. Can’t wait to see what’s up with Des’s brother and if she is pulling a prank on Sean to get him back for his prank?

    Comment by Lisa — February 13, 2013 @ 11:32 am

  24. So, I’m seriously no fan of Tierra, but I feel like I’m constantly defending her. Why? Because I do see an insecure person and for her to be so afraid to show some weakness around the girls it makes it even more clear how insecure she is. Nobody but herself really truly knows her story and why she is the way she is – and if she’s not an actress – but a real person I feel that it’s horrible that absolutely everybody are dissing her so much.
    Yes, if I was on the show I probably wouldn’t like her either, but I was not she was my main source of entertainment. And must say I prefer “real bitches” over “fake bitches”-meaning those that pretend they are so sweet and nice, but go behind your back and talk crap to make themselves feel better.
    I’m surprised to see that almost everybody watching hates Tierra. She has done nothing to us. It broke my heart to watch her cry like that. I’m not even sure she likes herself and if (once again she is a real person and not an actress) and reading all the crap that has been written about her, I feel for her.
    Somebody on the show said Tierra brought them toghether, they got an mutual enemy and someone to talk about…if it wasn’t for that they’d be hating on each other, so in a way they should thank her.

    Ok, rest of the girls:
    Desiree again is the opposite of Tierra (edited by the show): sweet, aaaaalways sais the “perfect things”. It was something from the first episode that I did not quite like about her, I can’t put my finger on it, but it still sticks.

    Catherine seems the most real and doesn’t have to talk with that “sweet-baby-talk” voice to get Seans interest. Plus she gorgeous.

    Lindsay is adorable, maybe even too adorable if it’s possible?

    Ashlee is intense. I like that about her, but she seems not as light-hearted as the rest of the girls left.

  25. Great Blog! Soo funny honest and true. Your comments were right on! I loved it! I shared many of your thoughts and think u had some great insight. Very well written. Thanks for a good laugh and enjoyable read. :)

    Comment by Courtney — February 13, 2013 @ 1:54 pm

  26. Hey Michael! So this is my first comment on any of the bachelor blogs EVER. and I’ve been watching since Ali F.’s I just wanted to say hi and congratulations because you say you read every comment. When you were on bachelor pad (the first time) my heart broke for you over and over, i am so happy you have found someone in your life who you can truly be happy with :) Thanks for reading! ~Amanda

    Comment by Amanda — February 13, 2013 @ 4:45 pm

  27. THANK YOU for pointing out the Tierrable stated that she was behind in the “game.” I almost threw my remote at the TV I was so annoyed!!! If that comment didn’t show her true colors, I don’t know what else she could say…she wasn’t there for love tho. That is for sure. Totally love your blog! Hope you keep doing it!

    Congrats on the engagement! Sincerely,

    Just another COUGAR-according to Tierrable’s timetable! :)

    Comment by Brookie — February 13, 2013 @ 6:21 pm

  28. SJ, if you watch Tierra’s meltdown again you’ll notice NO TEARS come out of her eyes during the crying scene. She was faking it.

    Comment by Jessie — February 15, 2013 @ 5:38 am

  29. Micheal, you are very talented, funny writer!

    Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if
    this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility
    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks
    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
    Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    Hi there! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to take a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information.

    I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Fantastic blog and wonderful design.
    Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to
    start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .
    . Any ideas? Cheers!
    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
    of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about
    a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.

    net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content
    into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to send you
    an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to
    this superb blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will share this website with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
    Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check
    out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like
    the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my
    cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, fantastic blog!
    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
    Right now it sounds like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that
    what you’re using on your blog?
    Fantastic post however I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further.
    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!
    Hey! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting
    a new project in a community in the same niche.

    Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on. You have done a extraordinary job!

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers
    and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
    Hey there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this
    post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this.

    I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a
    good read. Many thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to
    make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when
    you could be giving us something informative to read?

    Today, I went to the beach front with my
    children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell
    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to
    see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out
    Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was
    just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything
    you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.
    This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Exceptional work!
    Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
    Hello there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content.

    Please let me know. Cheers
    Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

    Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks
    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m
    not very techincal but I can figure things out
    pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Thank you
    Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template
    or plugin that might be able to resolve this
    issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Many thanks!
    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be
    honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back down the road. Cheers
    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like
    to know where u got this from. many thanks
    Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the
    same results.
    Howdy are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to
    get started and set up my own. Do you need any coding expertise
    to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
    Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok.
    I’m absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.
    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything
    I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get
    my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Thank you!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was
    curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
    Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to
    determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?

    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
    Howdy! I’m at work surfing around your blog
    from my new iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all
    your posts! Keep up the great work!
    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyways, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  38. Forgive my stupidity, but I won’t be able to for that life of me find your sites rss feeds. Mind directing me to it? Thanks.

  39. Fried Chicken outside the Southern United states of america.
    Then you can dip them into liquid batter and fry them. Essentially the most
    important portion of frying fish is making it possible for the oil to reach the
    best temperature prior to including the fish.

  40. Also, if they think they will miss out on important information, current events and
    so on. It is vital that the content on your site
    or blog. After purchasing the fabric or even better, but if you avoid creating
    a sales pitch is the challenge you face.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

  44. With the latest study from PEW Research stating that
    95% of teens have access to the Internet, 80% of kids have cell phones and 48% have data plans, providing a safe cyber-space should be a priority for all parents.
    In addition, many of the words used started to take on slightly different meanings, depending on the context in which they are used.
