Confessions of a Silent Blog Stalker

Today's guest post comes to us from Heather over at A Goddess in Progress. Heather is one of my real life friends, and is *most* always positive and *always* always genuine. Her words put a smile on my face, and they really make me think. You'll definitely want to get to know her better, I suggest you start here.

Okay, okay -I'm not always a silent stalker. I do comment here. I feel safe here. I guess in the blog world I do better in a group setting. Or maybe it was the post about "gathering Glendas" I'm not sure, but I'll tell you that this is an exception.

I ♥ Naval Gazing at its Finest ( I also ♥ Angie in Pink ( , This is the Life (, -and you ladies- but do I regularly add my comment? No. No I do not. But I can't figure out why.

In the flesh I have no problems handing out a compliment or a comment to a total stranger. I do draw a line at telling strangers "You have a nice butt," but even then -if a stranger came up to me and politely told me "You have a nice butt" I think it just might make my week!! (Assuming the said stranger wasn't some slimy creep.)

I have a blog (well, in truth I have four blogs, and belong to one cooking and two exercise blogs -ironically I'm not much of a cook, and I definitely don't qualify as a good exerciser -but notice, I'm not one to turn down invitations.) Back to my original thought -I have a blog that I opened up to the public because I have total BLOG ENVY of the people who have like 56 comments after every post.

But I guess in order to receive comments, one would need to give comments. So I guess it is time to turn over a new leaf. Ladies, you ALL have nice butts!

Thanks for noticing! ('re not creepy, are you?) I tried a guest blog here, too, in search of more than 4 comments. It didn't work. But, alas, I still hope. Thanks for giving me a new place to lurk!

Bwahahah! You're such a hoot!

I used to be a blog stalker as well and finally took the plunge. Haven't looked back since!

Right back at ya, Heather!! I'm a shy commenter, too... I think my problem is that I think every comment has to be hilarious. But even a "haha!" does the trick!
