You know your posts are being skimmed when...

No one notices the giant Easter Bunny on the house.


I've been guilty of skimming when I 'm in a hurry too.

How can you tell when you've been skimmed?

This is another in the "Pimp my blog series"

  1. Haha Anne honestly I did notice it, I guess I just didn't feel a need to comment on it! Or maybe I didn't notice it and I'm just believing I had, I like it regardless!

    1. One person did say something about it. I was going to point it out in the post and thought "Nah, let's just see if anyone notices" I'm never upset when something like that doesn't get commented on. The figure was the main attraction.

    1. Now I miss R. He was the best skimmer in the whole blogosphere. He wouldn't follow me though and I tried hard to lure him here.

    1. No is as bad as Rousell. God, remember all those months after he won the painting Challenge last year. Oh Jesus, that was bad.

  6. I saw it and marveled; but I was also dumbfounded and fingerless by the powerful presence of Ray's nanny!

    1. Now that was an answer worthy of the finest diplomat. You looking for a job in the foreign services Jay?

  7. I don't question, I just believe!

    I DO hope the Easter Bunny makes it by my house this weekend!

    1. I really miss having little ones around the house during the holidays. One day my children will give me grandchildren and I'll get that back.

  8. Wargaming and Easter bunnies. Does it ever get better than this! (Oh and holidays from work for Easter for extra painting time!) Seriously good. Love the painting too Anne.

    1. We're just a bunch of kids that refused to grow up. We know how to have proper fun!

  9. Well, I tell ya, that big lady gets most of my attention, but I'm loving the Easter Bunny. I should code some Easter Bunnies on Tim's blog this weekend. Or maybe little yellow chicks.

    1. Oh yeah, give him some chicks or bunnies. Something so feminine it starts another mock war between you two.

  10. When we see Easter Bunnies prominently every year, it's thought of as seasonal background dressing, not a standout worthy of commenting in the face of more notable things like the carefully painted figurines, especially when, in the example, the foreground features a crop-top Nanny.

    1. But dammit Pickle, I paid a whole dollar for that little cardboard house with the Easter Bunny on it.

  11. I noticed it; I just, um, didn't really think it was out of place. It didn't strike me as odd is what I'm saying. I'm not sure if that says something about me or something about you.

  12. I saw it but thought you were just being seasonal.

  13. I dunno, Anne. I do skim here and there, but usually here I try and give it a good view and try to see what all the pros are talking about.

    I know people skim my posts when they comment something I already mentioned. I answered the question, and I mentioned the original source! DON'T THINK YOU'RE BETTER THAN ME AT MY OWN BLOG

    /end rant.

  14. Things like that don't stand out enough for me to comment on them. I usually just think it was an intentional part of the background.

    I can tell when people skim our stuff, which is sad, because it's mostly comics. If you can't read even one comic panel and just comment on it, well, that's sad.

  15. I will admit to not seeing the bunny.... but with a figure like that how can I not miss is... my brain is going into survival mode sure that the scary woman is about to hit me on the head.

    great trick Anne... though I am not sure missing the bunny in this case counts as skimming, perhaps missing the bunny shows how good you are at focussing on the most dangerous thing around. that's why Ray manages to hide so much, people will all start looking else where at things far more dangerous. Then again when he is dressed up like he was over on Fran's blog he's unmissable... surely when a man goes to such extremes to dress up he is a risk to national security.

  16. I come here for the figures, the boobies and the Oirishness cailin.

    2. Thank you Fran.

      Ray, you nasty little man. Trying to get me mad at Fran. Now bugger off!
