I hope you're having a great day.
So I know it's a bit late for this, 26 days late to be exact, but I have a New Year's resolution regarding blogging.
I am going to do the unthinkable (to me): leave more comments.
I read a huge number of blogs. At the moment, my Google Reader has...let's see... 970 unread posts. Nine hundred and seventy. If you have a blog and you've commented here before, I'm probably subscribed to you. But I almost never comment! It's not that I'm not interested, or that I don't want to participate in the blogging community. I'm just a shy, lurking blog-reader. It's kind of ridiculous. (Fun fact, though-- there is a Wikipedia entry for 'lurker' about people who do this!) There are blogs I've been reading for years, and that I'm emotionally invested in, like The Little Things We Do, home of the cutest baby on the planet, Fern. I think I've commented maaaaaybe three times? That's just silly. But I worry that I don't have anything worthwhile to add to the conversation, or that I'll be repeating what someone else already said, and I psych myself out and don't comment.
Note to self: it is a blog comment.
It doesn't need to be a work of literary greatness.
And anyway, I love reading comments on my blog! I enjoy each one-- I never think, "Hrmmm, this comment ends with a preposition! It lacks a witty-yet-relevant pun!" Chances are that nobody else things those things either.
So anyway. I'm going to try to comment on at least three posts every day. And I'm keeping myself accountable by posting it here.
Baby steps to commenting more.
(that last bit is a reference to the movie What About Bob? and if you haven't seen it you really should.)
Have a fantastic weekend!
