Note to all of you lurkers...
Hi. I'm constantly amazed by how many people read my blog. What started as an easy way to keep my nearest and dearest relatively up to date on my life during my busiest times has snowballed into a forum where I vent and complain, and generally get things off my chest. And it seems to be read by a significant number of people. And apparently there are a lot of you reading out there that aren't even related to me. That being said... hi mom!
I've had quite a few people in various spheres of my life mention that they read my blog. From Hitched ladies that I barely know to people that I went to school with a while back. I recently got an e-mail from someone whom I haven't spoken to in months congratulating me on my program switch... she had seen it in my blog. Wha? Granted, many of the people who claim to have been reading my entries regularly might just be trying to be polite. Since I don't have the web-savvy to add a counter to my page I have to take their word for it.
But here's the complaint... why don't you post? I love reading comments from people, whether I know you in real life or not. Particularly if you disagree with something I've written. Maybe I'm just not being inflammatory enough. Taking criticism is the risk you take when you expose some of your more personal thoughts with a public audience. But I can take it as well as I dish it out. So post. Tell me what you think. It makes me feel loved. Or not.
(Disclaimer: If you leave a random obnoxious comment and don't identify yourself, I'll erase it. This is not a democracy... it's my page. So there. Heh.)
