You may have noticed I've been absent from the blogging world for a bit of time. Or maybe you didn't miss my ranting/snarky/funny/weird/sarcastical voice. But I have, in fact, not typed a published word in 13 days.
Why, you ask?
'cause I ain't had nothin' to say.
Life has been truckin along. I've done lots of driving, lots of playing, lots of reading. But not lots of crafting. I kind of lost my muse there for a week or so. And now I'm getting it back, but making personalized stuff (with last names even, so I really REALLY can't post pictures), or projects that are going to take WAY longer than expected.
So instead of just remaining silent, I actually came up with a discussion question. And I'd really love to hear from all of you on it.
How do you feel about comments?
Now, some of you, I already know your opinion. You in fact have wonderfully thought out comments about comments already on your blog.
But most of you, I really don't know about.
When do you leave comments? What makes you NOT want to comment? Do you over think them? Under think them? Ramble too much?
My two cents: I LOVE comments. I love reading them, I love leaving them. I happen to think I'm pretty smart, and my thoughts are worth reading. But often, someone starts crying, so I don't get the chance. Or I don't know how to phrase what I'm feeling.
Or more often than not, there's already a bunch of comments. And really, I'm just a silly little housewife, without much to say, and everyone else can say it better, and who really has time to read the 63rd comment on the exact same topic, and I'm just wasting my time 'cause someone else noticed the exact same thing as me and why bother.
Hmmm. I'd say I've got all the symptoms of having too much to say, and too many insecurities to just say it.
I want to be one of those people that my bloggy friends know, because I comment on their thoughts.
I want to have conversations, let people know who I am, what I'm all about.
If 12 people all said the same thing on my blog, I wouldn't be bugged. I'd take it as a sign that their words are true.
This whole post is more of a pep talk to myself. Which I've decided I'm going to be better about taking to heart.
Who cares how many comments there are.
My words still count too.
*please please PLEASE chime in. 'Cause I want to know you all too. This blog has more than tripled in followers in the last few months, but I really only hear from the same people. I'd love to know everyone's voice!
