Dear World Wide Web...

"Dear World Wide Web,
Are there really readers of blogs out there? Readers who actually will comment on blog posts? I've done the blog thing before, and as far as I can tell, I'm just yammering away to myself.
So, World Wide Web, can you tell me if there really are folks who read and comment on blogs, or are they just another Santie Claus type legend?"

Don't be shy. Say hello. Say "P~~~~~~~~~!" if you really want to. Just prove to me that you're here, that you've at least pretended to read what I've posted. I'm very fond of Avoiding What I Should Be Doing (read: I *should* be writing, doing laundry, cleaning my house, organizing my sons' room... any number of things besides playing with my blog).

It's an urban legend. There are no readers. *snerk*

Michele said...

The only way I can see that I may have readers on my blog is the hit counter I have set up. I love comments though and have had some really nice ones.

Kate R said...

bitch.

Ten minutes and you have more comments than I usually get on an entry after more'n a year of blogging.

welcome to the madness.

Laura Hamby said...

Heh. I knew it was an Urban Legend.

Michele, I have a counter on my other blog.

Nell, "Show me your feathers!"

Laura Hamby said...

Kate, you snuck in while I was busy posting! You win the *First Commentator To Call Me a Bitch On My Blog Award.*

What do you win? You win a Bat Salute.

Barbara said...

no, the only people who comment on blogs are other bloggers we know and love. I put up a blog and haven't had one comment. of course the blogs were rants, but who cares.

Laura Hamby said...

P~~~~~ to you too, Sela.

Well, this sucks! I get maybe one comment every other month. If I'm lucky.

How come everbody is over here? HUH? Yeah, I know ... y'all like Laura better don't you? Or did she bribe you with chocolate?

Well P~~~~~~~~~` to that. ;)

Laura Hamby said...

Hi Kat and Meg. Welcome to my blog.

No bribery by chocolate has taken place yet, Meg, but there's still plenty of time.

Meg Allison said...

Yeah.... right.

Did you have to make it so....PINK?

(shudder)

Laura Hamby said...

Meg...

In a word...

Yes.

But, I might change that. Mebbe the next time I should be writing or folding laundry I'll mess with the colors.
