I freely admit it. I love reading blogs. (I'm sure you all could tell this.) I also am the ultimate commentator. I feel the need to comment on everything.
What does this equal? A blog stalker who comments on everything she comes across. Honestly, I hardly come across a blog without commenting on it. To me, that's less creepy than someone who reads and never comments. I'd rather know who's reading than not know, you know? (haha)
However, all people aren't like this. Some are like, "OH MY GOSH! MY BLOG CAN BE READ BY SOMEONE I DON'T KNOW?!?!?!?" Umm, yes. If it's not private, anyone in the whole wide world can find your blog and read it! SHOCKER. I've had a girl come back to my blog and comment, "Ummm do I know you?!?" I was just like, "ummm no? Is that okay?"
I admit, seeing the words "The Boob Nazi" on your blog can be disconcerting. It has TWO taboo words in it! Oh no! BOOBS! She's talking about booooobs. And nazi! How offensive!!! She must be part of the KKK and have blonde hair and blue eyes and hate everyone who isn't a part of the Aryan race! (But really, I do get that seeing that on your blog might make you go, umm wtf is this?)
I once commented on some random lady's blog. She was spending a semester in England and had just gone to Edinburgh for a weekend. Now, if you know anything about me, you know that I LOVE SCOTLAND. I went in June 2006 for 2ish weeks and May/June of 2008 for 3 weeks. One week was with the mother and the other two weeks were by myself. I love that place. So when I saw she'd been to Edinburgh (please pronounce this as Edinburrrra), I said something about it. I don't remember the comment, but it was something about how much I loved Edinburgh and how I wished I could've gone there recently.
She deleted my comment. I happened to go back because I was googling myself one day. (And by myself, I mean "boob nazi.") She deleted it! I know I wrote NOTHING offensive, so it had to be my nom de plume that threw her off. The funny thing is, she hadn't deleted it permanently, so my "name" was still on there. So basically, there was no point to deleting the comment. It was by no means offensive, believe me! I LOVE SCOTLAND. I was jealous of her being able to live in England for however long she was.
Which would you rather? I personally love people to comment (if only ONCE) so I can have a reciprocal relationship with them and comment on their blog as well, especially since I have been SO BORED since coming home. Heck, if strangers comment on my blog, I'll click over, comment, and most likely put them on my sidebar! Don't we all love more people reading our blog? I blog mostly for myself, but I also blog because I think other people would like to read my stories.
I don't know the point of this. But if I stalk you, I will comment. I hope it doesn't make you uncomfortable.
