Is there anybody OUT there?

Good news readers, I am back. More about that in my next post. But what I am wondering is, are there any readers out there? I thought my last entry might merit a comment*, but alas, I suppose I find myself more amusing than I actually am. Just a bit bummed, I suppose.

My cousin Jamie sent me a text that may bring a few of you out of the woodwork. She asked how she could comment without getting a gmail account, and I found a setting for that!! So now everyone can add their witticisms and praise! And, Jamie did make her comment. It's a pretty good one, but on an older post - click here. Thanks Jame!

BTW - thanks ever so much to my regular commenters, Cara, Mel, Danielle, Tiff, and Liz. Now, on to the blogging...because I guess in all fairness, a few of you may be wondering...

...Is there anybody IN there?

I'm somewhat relieved to know that I am not the only one who gets a pang of sadness when something I write goes without comment! Silly, aren't we?
Let me also share a pet theory I've been cultivating. Let's call it the Inverse Blog Energy Theory. Here's how it works. Those posts that I slave over, the ones where I think hard and work hard and edit and revise and proofread... nobody comments. The ones that I just sneeze out on the way to work- they get plastered with comments. The amount of energy spent on the blog post is inversely proportional to the amount of energy returned. What do you think?

I had not actively observed this phenomenon, but now that you mention it...

I was really happy to see a comment on one post while I was writing another! Thanks!

I love Danielle Mari's theory! I have found the same thing to be true and I completely don't understand it. Not only that, but I have Google Analytics on my blog so I can see how many people come to my blog everyday and only 20-25% ever leave comments. What's up with that? I think there are a lot of people out there who just don't think comments are necessary. To them I say, they are blogger crack, we NEED them. Please comment!

I feel your pain. Also, I find that people seem hesitant to leave comments because other people can read them. I get a lot of one-line emails that should cleary be blog comments :)

You gotta tell me how to make it so Jame can comment on my blog.

And.... Tiff comments on urs regularly??? I sent her the link and she hasn't commented once yet... :( :( :(

oh! I forgot:

"Hello, Hello, Hello.
Is there anybody IN there?"

I don't remember what comes after that, but I tried...
