My daughter Stephanie sent this to me when I complained about not getting enough comments from my kids. I thought it was hilarious and the suggestion about posting notes on the fridge as an alternative sometimes seems a valid alternative.
Why do we blog anyway? We want to be heard. We have a voice, things to say. But sometimes you wonder – is it honest enough? Is it too much transparency? Is it valid or timely? Is anyone blessed? One thing that probably helps me keep going is that I am totally "blind," in that I don't even know how to check my stats (other than the ones Technorati shoves in my face which tell me that 1.2 million people are more popular as bloggers than me). I have no idea how many people have stopped by or lurked or whatever? I only know some one has read it if they leave a comment – or e-mail me on the side and mention something I wrote. According to those statistics, I have about 7.3 readers. Keeps me humble.
NOTE TO SELF: Be honest. Be true. Write to the unknown reader who might need to read what I have to say.
