|He's really excited|
Today I wanted to chat about a problem I have: blog lurking. I have only recently gotten into the whole "blog scene" and so I'm still learning. I have found blogs that I love and some that I don't care for. More often than not, though, I will read and not comment on someone's post.
Almost exactly a year ago, I moved to a new position at work. Training was rather slow so I ended up having a lot of down time. I stumbled upon Mama Laughlin's site and after reading a few posts, I was hooked. I read the whole thing from start to finish, but didn't submit one comment. She had introduced Skinny Meg in one of her posts, so I went over to Megan's site and again read from start to finish without adding any comments. So, I know all about these women and are invested in their lives, yet they have no idea who I am. Do I sound like a creeper yet?

As I started finding more blogs to read, I was still hesitant to comment. I would think oh, this person already has 50 comments, they don't care about mine or whatever I have to say will sound lame. Wrong! I got a little giddy every time someone commented on my blog so why wouldn't someone else feel the same?
So, I started putting myself out there and adding comments and lo and behold, I started connecting with people. I have now made some great friends through blogging and it all started with a simple comment. Holly did an awesome post on Blogger 101/102 that really says this all a lot better.

Putting yourself out there is tough, but oh so rewarding. Now, go make someone's day and leave a comment on a blog you never have before!
