Here is the first part of this little trio of posts.
The third part will pop up in a little while.
Also, awhile back, I finally started commenting.
Slowly, I was letting people know that I was actually reading about their lives/passions/talents.
And you know what??
People, like, commented back! (ugh. I am Not that valley girl in real life. Just a literary device that shows I'm human.)
It was weird.And fun.And cool.And AWESOME!
And not the same weird that I felt when my Dad told me his friend read my blog last year.
That was strange.
Kinda like letting the air out of my balloon.
What?? People (read: Strangers .....you know, the people you DON'T TAKE CANDY FROM)
actually read the stuff I write on this here blogger.com thing?
People other than me choose to read it?
People other than the four people I told about it read it?
Those same People who don't even know me have thoughts on what I say? okay, enough questions
Big anticlimactic answer: Yes.
People write. People care. People have many of the same motivations I have for writing&reading blogs that I do.
Go figure that they would then respond after I reach out to them. (even in my teeny, tiny gesture)
DUH, right? :) Yes, I'll admit, I'm a slow learner sometimes.
Another thing I should note:
I feel particularly giddy when I receive comments.
As I told my friend the other day, I feel all yummy inside. Like after I have really awesome ice cream. Or mashed potatoes. (my other true love :)
Ha- this is what I said to my friend: "Man, it's weird being in this place in life! Having friends getting engaged every other weekend, meeting friends-of-friends, and getting involved in blogs & actually getting feedback (read: comments -they're like a big "brown paper packages tied up with string" super yummy feeling) from all the nice girls I read about."
And let's leave this post at that.
How would you describe how you feel after receiving comments?
