I was flipping through my reader the other day and it dawned on me that I don’t “like” or comment on a lot of what I read.
Somedays I scan through what’s in there and others I’ll devour each post by each author.
Today I was catching up on those I haven’t been able to actually read.
Some are funny, some are foodie posts, some focus on gay/lesbian lifestyles, some on engineering, etc. I read what interests me.
I clicked the star on several but commented on none.
Julie once asked me what my favorite posts are. The truth is, like me, they don’t fit into a neat little box.
Some I enjoy because they resonate with a part of me or what I’m going through at the time. Some make me laugh out loud when I need a little levity in my day. Others are just very well written. Yes, I can appreciate that a blog post may not be on a topic I find interesting but I have the utmost respect for an author that can write in a way that makes me want to keep reading.
I write to get all the randomness out of my head. It’s a way to pass time and to spew out information that is distracting me from accomplishing my daily goals. Nothing more, nothing less.
I could probably be more successful with my blogs, considering my extensive education in writing, but I do this for me.
I have a bad habit of getting wrapped up in life and neglecting my blog. I’ve gone for at least a year without spitting out anything. Other times, I have so much to get out there, I may post several times a day.
Whatever my mood, I wanted to say that just because I may not comment or like your posts very often, I am here. Lurking in the shadows, appreciating the entertainment you all provide. Thank you.
