While I am on the subject of commenting, I must say that I have been remiss in taking care of commenter’s on my blog. Four and a half years ago, I did not really want people commenting. I wanted them to say, ”Oh I love your post”, but I thought if I get one critical comment, what will I do? I sometimes wrote about politics, for example, and I thought if a Democrat writes back, how the hell am I going to get out of this one, I‘ll have to say something. Little did I know that if they do not like what you write, they will not come back, and that is their comment.
Without a doubt my daughters have been the best commenter’s and the most frequent. I think they have a secret plan that they take the calendar and parcel out the weeks so I will always have someone commenting. I am so grateful that they will read my blog, as some of this stuff I is what I want them to read. I may not verbalize all that I want to say to them. Very nicely they sometimes call me up to have me correct my errors. And my poor husband, my syntax drives my him crrrazzzy. He has to give up reading for a week.
After my daughters, 425 Heidi has been the most loyal follower. She sometimes comments, but now all her children go to school, and she has a life. But she still reads. She, along with my daughter’s, have read this for almost five years. Here’s to Heidi.
On an ordinary day, I do not expect anyone to comment. People have lives, and frankly hanging around your computer as I do, may not be the way to live. On the other hand, I take that back ,in the sense that we used to read newspapers. Reading blogs can be invasive in your life. You have to make an effort, and that is why I do not expect much. It is enough that you have looked at the site. I do see how many people come by. Even that I am going to try to curtail. But a nice comment is a little attachment to a real person. Someone is out there in the universe. Someone who may be in South Africa or Kansas. Who knows where the spirit will take a comment, and in this day and age of electronics, human attachment seems a good thing.
Under no circumstances should anyone comment on this post. And I mean it.
Above is a blue moon.
