After my last post rambling on about comments; I realized something.
Yeah, maybe I'm a bad commenter on certain sites - but on the sites where I have "connected" with the blogger - yes, those I'm a frequent commenter on (unless you intimidate me-and yeah some of you do - don't ask me why.) for the most part.
And Choleesa put it best: ".....Because really, as much as I want a gazillion followers, isnt it much more satisfying to actually have interaction with the peeps that take time out of their busy lives, to read you and respond??"
She hit it DEAD ON.
When I started this blog it wasn't to find "readers" or even really to meet new people.
It was truly just an online diary of sorts. A way to get the thoughts out of my head. And then .... somehow connections were made. And it was awesome.
Through this blog I have met some truly, truly amazing people (you!!!). And though, yeah, after I began to realize that there are blogs out there with a "gazillion" followers and it was kinda of like - hmmmm, how can I get a gazillion followers. But then I also began to realize, that is un-important. This is not high school and it's not a popularity contest.
What is important is that I've made "connections." I've "met" people - people who are truly awesome - people whom I would enjoy in real time. People with whom I can share my life experiences with - freely. People who are far away and some that are not so far away (and it totally boggles my mind that some of you are "right around the corner" and that some are across the Pond, so to speak). People I would have most likely never met under normal circumstances.
I know that those who comment are commenting because they really have something to say. I know that I comment because I really have something to say. So no more will I feel that I am a bad commenter (okay - for the most part I won't; but because we all know how I am - it will probably happen on occasion....you just be there to talk me down!).
(By the way - is it just me or do you all obsess before you actually hit the Publish Post button?)
Arrrrgggghhhhh! I did it again!!! I am beginning to think that Blogger should remind me when I hit Publish that I have yet to title the damn thing!
