As a blogger, I’m never quite sure who’s reading my blog. I know people are reading it because, here on wordpress, you can check your blog stats and see how many people have read your blog that day. There’s a cool little graph and everything. My record high, just so you all know, is 196 in one day!! (I think it was around Christmas and a lot of people used the search term “Santa” and “Jesus” and my ever-controversial Santa post came up. But still… thats a lot of people!)
There are the obvious blog readers who leave a lot of comments and they are on my blogroll and I’m on theirs. Then there are people who I see out and about and they tell me they read my blog and they think it’s really funny… but they never comment. It’s a little annoying, but just a little. Like, on a scale of 1 to 10, it’s a 3. No biggee. But, what I do find interesting is what brings these blog lurkers out to the public and what finally grabs them enough that they feel so compelled that they just must leave a comment.
For instance, Rayna left me a comment on my Jon and Kate post. Makes sense. She’s a kid lover. Awhile ago, Jimmy left a comment on my mouse post. (Remember that? Eww!) But that also makes sense because Jimmy is a guy and he wanted to help fix the problem. Then, just today, Lesley commented on my hat post. Also, makes sense. That was a really good peice of writing and Lesley is a writer. 🙂 But the one I liked the best was Alyssa. What finally compelled her to leave a comment, you ask? Girl scout cookies! Ha!
