Oh, hello! Have some tamale pie. It’s fab.
Do you blog? Or read blogs? If you read other people’s blogs, do you comment on them? I try to comment on the blogs I read. I don’t know if my comments have any meaning to the author or not, but I want them to know that someone is out there, reading what they have to say.
Me? I LOVE seeing comments on my posts. I know there are many of my posts that have no meaning to anyone other than me, so I understand why there wouldn’t be a comment. But I get that Christmas-morning feeling when I get an email telling me that someone has commented. Is that weird? Needy? I don’t know.
My friend, K2Kid, didn’t read my blog for a long time. Then she found it. And said she liked it. And claims she still reads it, but doesn’t comment. I’m okay with that because I certainly don’t want anyone to feel they have to comment. Unlike some other bloggers, I do this for my own amusement. (For now. But if anyone is interested in paying me to do this… let me know.)
I read some blogs that are very personal, and were bourne from some huge life change/tragedy as a way to get that “stuff” out. I get that. And it’s very likely that I may have a time for that too.
Regardless, if you read this, I’m glad you do. If anything I write hits a nerve with you, or makes you smile or think or whatever, then I’m glad for that too. And if the mood ever strikes you to comment, or say hi, do that too. (But not mean comments. I don’t mind comments that disagree with me, but mean ones? No. Thank you, though.)

I laughed out loud when I clicked over to this page. I am catching up so am in the midst of leaving you ten thousand comments. On the last one, I was all, I wonder if I should stop because this is too annoying that I’m commenting all over everything. (SHADDUP, LESLEY.) But I guess it’s okay and I will carry on! Heh.
And? I appreciate how you so faithfully comment on my posts. You’re part of the family!! xoxo

I’m a bad commenter. I love comments on my own blog so I should know better. It’s nice to know you’ve hit a nerve with something you’ve written, whether it’s about a TV show or a topic that’s more important. I love your blog—I like the breezy intros you do (and am jealous I didn’t think of that first!)—and I like the things you talk about. Keep doing it and I’ll keep commenting. Promise!

Debra, Jessica, and Mo are my most consistent commenters. Thank you all. Like I said, I don’t want people to feel they need to comment, but I’m not going to lie when I say I LOVE when they do! Thank you ladies. 🙂

Keep blogging. I love your posts. I love reading everyones posts. I think regardless of how personal the posts are that you put a little bit of yourself out there everything and that can only be a good thing 🙂
I will blog again soon. I promise.

I’m here! I always read, always intend to comment, and succeed about half the time. I know, bad. I will try to step it up.
I love getting comments, too, and love that you take the time to read and comment on my blog. Thank you!! xoxo
