Do you have a bad case of blogger envy? Do you covet thy neighbour bloggers book hauls/follower numbers/blog design? How do you tamp down the green eyed monster?

Hmm sometimes I do, not usually with book hauls because honestly I don’t have time to read the books I have let alone keep up with weekly book goodies. I do covet the amount of comments other bloggers get on their posts though. I look at their post and wonder what they are doing that are garnering so much response and wonder what it is I can do to improve my post:comment ratio. I think follower count is related to comment count but also the amount of quality and interesting posts a blogger does and of course the amount of time they spend promoting their blog and socialising with their followers and other bloggers so I suppose that’s my way of tamping down on my blogger envy - focusing on how I can improve instead of how much “better” I think other bloggers are. Oh blog designs too! Not so much an overall design but little features a blogger has in their template like drop down menus! I really, really want a drop down menu but I don’t know how to make them or customize them or add them to my template, this makes me sad some times because I know it’s possible I just don’t know where to start.
