Sunday Stealing: Meme About Blogging

1. How did you come up with your blog title OR what does it mean?

i thought it was a good play on words. 'd serves' is kind of like 'deserves', but serving is quite a bit different from deserving or entitlement. 'd' is the first letter of my name. The 'coming alive as His' part came from a song called Let It Rock, this part of the lyrics--

Because when I arrive
I, I bring the fire
Make you come alive
I can take you higher

Those lyrics reminded me of Sir and how i feel when He arrives. i get all excited and warm all over, more animated and even rather bouncy. In learning to please Him, i feel like the slave in me is coming alive and that He brings out the best in me, i.e. takes me higher.

2. What are your general goals for blogging?

i mainly just wanted to have a place to write when i felt like it and have fun with memes and whatever else occurs to me.

3. Do people “in your real life” know that you blog and do they comment on your blog OR is it largely anonymous?How often do you post (x per week)?

No. i stopped posting to my vanilla blog that friends and family knew about. This one is anonymous, at least i hope so. i try to post every day, but some days i miss and then catch up when i get back to it.

4. How often do you read other blogs (x per week)?

Probably 3-4 times a week.

5. How do you select blogs to read (do you prefer blogs that focus on certain topics or do you choose by tone or…?)

i look for BDSM lifestyle blogs, and i also visit the blogs of those who do the same memes that i do and discover blogs i enjoy that way, too.

6. Do you have any plans to copy your blog entries in any other format, 0r do you think that one day, you’ll just delete it all?

i imagine it will just float away into cyberspace one of these days.

7. What are the things you like best about blogging?

Being able to say whatever i want to.

8. What are the things you don’t like about blogging?

How sometimes simply because it is there i feel like i need to post something.

9. How do you handle comments?

i generally will visit the blogs of those who comment to try to get to know them better.

10. Do you have any burning thoughts to share on blog etiquette?

my blog etiquette is the same as in real life. i try to treat other bloggers the way i would want to be treated. i respect and appreciate that they have gone to the trouble to post something that i am able to read if i want to. If i don't like it, i certainly do not have to read it.

11. Any desired blog features?

i like being able to change themes when i feel like it, and i like to be notified of comments.

12. Have you suffered blog addiction?

i don't think so. i do enjoy reading blogs, but i also like reading other things, like books.


  1. I liked your answers, and I agree with your take on blog comments. It is nice to treat people the way you want to be treated. :) Happy Sunday!

  2. agree with your number ten. as for the blog features...are your comments not moderated? if not, try moderating them so that you will be notified through email when you received comments.

    thanks for visiting mine.

  3. Some good answers. I agree with your #8 about sometimes feeling the need to post something, and your #10 about blog etiquette.
