I went back to the SITS site that day to leave an extra "WooHoo, I'm having so much fun!" comment, when I saw an anonymous (aka chickenshit) comment.
It went something like this:
"Sometimes it seems that the folks that love to get the most comments don't love to give them. Why is that?"
Okay, so, it was EXACTLY that, thanks to copy/paste.
I feel this comment, left on MY SITS day in particular, was personal.
And, to be honest, it pissed me off.
And I feel the need to explain myself.
Which pisses me off even more.
And Little Miss Anonymous will likely not come here and read this.
Hear me out, my faithful peeps.
I have blogged before about not having much time for this loved sport of mine. I can barely keep up with my regular reads, my posts and returning comment love, and acknowledging comments, even if it is just by email and never getting to those blogs.
Rest assured, I too, feel cheated that my life cannot accomodate more regular visits to other blogs.
I write my posts for MY benefit.
I try to make them somewhat interesting for YOURS.
I write when I need to for ME.
I stress over the need to be more productive for YOU. (That was not to make you feel even somewhat guilty!)
If you are a regular closet reader, or loyal commenter, please know that I totally adore you all and look forward to your visits. I often partake in beverages while we sit and visit on my blog.
When I come to yours, please know I come in peace and love. And it usually means my family has gone camping and that I am at home.
Desperately blogging for all I am worth.
This may bother my family when I say this, but blogging, or should I say the time it takes, isn't overly supported. I often hear "Where's Mom?" and the usual response of "At the computer. Where else?" and feel the standard Mom Guilt.
I mean, really, why should I be doing anything but clean when I'm at home, right?
I know with a few of my regular reads, the occasional time they stop here is a treat for me, but I never hold it against them for not coming more often. I am still a loyal reader of theirs regardless.
So, I do what I can. Which is my very bloggy best.
And I know that for those who like to come here, it is good enough.
And I thank you for that!
