When I started my blog it was just for me - I told no one about it. Slowly but surely I've been outed. Bubblehead of course knows about it, as does my family. Not too long ago my IRL (in real life) friends have learned about it, and I'm not quiet sure how that happened. I guess I'm just used to talking about it now and it came up. I think the only people in my life who don't know about it are my in-laws, and lets face it - it's just a matter of time.
But none of my IRL friends ever make a comment here. My family doesn't stop by with birthday wishes - no "Hello, I'm here" from anyone at all. I think MAYBE once my brother left me a cryptic comment on a post that probably pertained to him, but that's it.
So my first question is if your IRL friends and family know about your blog do they read and comment there? And if not, why is that? Is there a perception that you have to be a blogger to comment on a blog? Even Bubblehead, who was a blogger, doesn't comment here. (Although I'm not sure he reads MM anymore - busy backpacking, or planning a trip, or dreaming of a trip, or talking about a trip.)
So fess up - you know about my blog. If you're lurking here, say hello! (It would make me smile, and isn't that a nice thing to do for a friend/sister/daughter/niece/wife/granddaughter/aunt?)
**updated to note that no sooner had I written this post, and saved it to publish later on, did Bubblehead stop by and leave me a comment. Thanks, Baby!
