Is anyone out there?
For a long time, I refused to get a blog because I was convinced I didn't have anything to say. If I did have something to say, it was easier just to post a comment on someone else's blog. But then I joined Myspace, and for some reason I suddenly had interesting stories to share with the world via the web. So, like my fellow myspacers/bloggers Baron, Ashley, & Jamin, I decided to get a separate blog instead of using the myspace blog. Well, I can honestly say that I feel like my blog has been a flop. I don't feel like I ever have anything entertaining or interesting to talk about. On top of that, I rarely get comments, and when I do, they are from the 3 or 4 loyal readers I have who probably feel obligated because they are my friends (and my husband).
Please don't misunderstand this post. I am not looking for a pity party. What I am looking for is a roll call. If you are reading this blog, I am asking you to post a comment so that my blog-induced faux self-esteem can be boosted. Don't get me wrong - I do not confuse my blog world popularity (or lack thereof) with my approval rating in real life (unless you think I should - in which case, please just don't tell me).
Anyway, if you are reading this now, just give me a little "hi" or "present" or "here" in the comments section just so I can know if anyone even knows my blog exists. And if you are reading this and aren't a member of the Blogger, go ahead & sign up. No obligation. You don't even have to start a blog - it just gives you the right to post meaningless comments on other people's blogs.
