Question Time

     Every weekend I will have a blog post where I ask and answer questions.  It is a good way for readers to get to know more about me and also help me to get feedback on a number of questions. Do you like sending text messages? If so, are you good at SMS language or text language?  I am a phone call person and rarely send text messages. The funny thing is that I tend to write out every word when I do send a text. That means that I will write out 'you' instead of 'u.'
     I am also participating in Friendship Friday hosted by Create With Joy where this week the theme is Something New. When is the last time you did something new? Over the Easter weekend I came up with a new idea for potato salad which I will share on my next Creative Monday Blog Post. Is there something new you would like to do this season?  I would like to try some new recipes and start using a laptop instead of a desktop. I will get my first laptop this weekend!

I don't text much. I am an English teacher and feel the need to write complete words in complete sentences, so it takes me a long time to send anything.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your feedback Shelly! Have a good Thursday.

Sandee said...

I don't have a cell phone, but if I did I would disable texting. I haven't a clue what half of that poor English means. I don't care to either. Great question.

Have a terrific day Judy. ☺

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am here laughing Sandee! I struggle with texting! Take care and have a good day.

Theresa said...

I used to hate sending text messages, but got a new smart phone so they are much easier to write out now. I do like sending them for a quick question instead of being tied up in a long phone conversation!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot for your feedback Theresa! Have a good Thursday.

Judy Haughton-James said...

mail4rosey said...

I don't like to text, and I do like to try new things (except texting, lol). That being said, I do text my children, it's the fastest way to get a response from them. ;)

Congrats on your new laptop!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for sharing your comments Rosey! I am looking forward to using my new laptop.

Linda Blatchford said...

I don't text because my company charges me. I use Swype on my phone and it takes forever.

New: I'm making new silver sterling and religious jewelry for a show in April.

I do not text at all!! I THINK my cell phone accepts them--but haveb't even bothered to find out--I prefer the phone!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Rebel Damsel said...

I'm always texting, I like the convenience of it when I don't feel like having a long conversation with someone but my phone is very annoying and it takes forever to text a complete sentence, unfortunately my life is filled with people who will text rather then calling.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your feedback Rebel.

Carrie Ann Tripp said...

I like texting more than talking on the phone! I can say what needs to be said without getting stuck in a conversation that I don't have time for. My texting language depends on who I'm texting. I'm an English teacher, so if I need to set a good example, I do. However, if it's a family member or close friend, text lingo it is!

Thanks for sharing your comments Carrie. I will be sure to visit your Blog today.

Nekky said...

I prefer to make phone calls too. I rarely send text because I don't have time for that. It's easier for me to call up somebody than sending texts messages.
Wishing a beautiful weekend.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your feedback Nekky! Have a wonderful weekend.

craftyspices said...

I don't text that much, but I do think they can be good for a quick question or something, yet don't like long or full conversations. I do abbreviate a bit, but not nearly as close to what people/teens do these days.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your feedback craftyspices.

Maria said...

I love that you are a phone person. I used to love talking on the phone to friends. We could stay on for half a day. Lol. I love to text and am known to send the longest text messages ever. :)
I hope you had a beautiful Easter celebration with your family! I bet the potato salad was great!!
Thank you so much for the sweet wishes, Judy! Have a wonderful weekend!

Crystal Barnes said...

I gave up texting for a while and you would be amazed at how much less I talked to some of my friends. I was forced to put texting back on my phone, seems a lot of people are addicted! lol:)I am a new blogger, like your page. Might try and take a pointer or two. :)

Not much of a texting person since my phone is quite outdated. Won't let me text! But once I get my new phone, I will be like 'texting queen'! Always love your posts Judy :)
