I've been thinking...

That it's a good thing that I don't blog for the comments. I had over 100 hits today, and not one comment. I've been thinking there could be a couple of reasons for that.

1) I've been writing boring stuff that there isn't anything to comment about.

2) People are really busy and don't have time to leave a comment.

3) Some people (i.e. my grandmother) would like to leave a comment but don't really know how to work their computer...

I won't lie, I love comment love as much as the next blogger. It makes me feel connected to actual people instead of thinking I'm sending my thoughts out to be lost in cyberspace. I try to reciprocate and share the comment love with others, but maybe my comment karma needs a bit of a boost. I will make it a goal to compose five thoughtful and sincere responses to others blogs every day this week and just hope that if the comment love starts to flow my way again it won't be in the form of spam.

But even if I never get another comment again that is okay too. This is primarily a record for me and my family to look back over and enjoy the memories. I get a real kick out of reading back over my posts every couple of months or so... l mean let's face it, I am hilarious! ( Well, at least my kids are...)

I'll comment! Here are my lame excuses for not commenting on blogs...I don't feel like I have anything important to say, or it's late (such as now-it's 1 am). I usually have my computer time after the family is in bed and the time passes so quickly so I check a few blogs and then head off to bed. I read your blog every night so I'll comment more.

Here's a little comment love, Chrissy! The problem is that I have your blog on my reader, so it takes all these extras clicks to leave a comment. And I'm usually reading with my kids around, so even if I mean to comment I usually get derailed. Keep writing!

We are sending out some love commnets too! :)

I have been feeling the same about my blog. I read your blog daily for the giggle that comes when I read the cute conversations you have with your kids:)
I will be better about commenting.

I feel the same as Dinee. I don't feel like I have anything profound to say. I can assure you that I do giggle, out right laugh, and often shed tears by the things you write about. I love being ivited to share in this glimpse of your life.
So, Keep on keeping. Don't be discouraged.

I'm with you Chrissy. I love to write for the sake of writing but I also love the connection it gives me with people. I've been lazier about commenting, lately, because I hate to sound redundant but be assured that I check your blog regularly and I love what I'm reading. It brings back a lot of memories for me of my child raising years . . . the love, joy, frustration, fatigue, worry, humor,etc. Keep writing! Hope the "no couch potatoes" summer continues to go well. Love you.

I agree to all of the above. I love reading your blog and look forward to your funny writing style and read stories of your funny kids.

For me, it is mostly time to comment or lack of a response. In real life, I probably would have said, "That's funny!" I think even if I commented that every time, you would want me to stop!


Write on!
