I found out today that my pastor's wife reads my blog (yup -- you've been caught!!). The pastor's wife!! Sheesh...talk about pressure!! (just kidding)
It got me thinking, though: Who else is out there reading my blog without me knowing it? Now, don't get me wrong -- I don't feel violated or anything (in fact, I'm flattered!). Afterall, it was MY decision to create a blog on the internet for anybody to access and read. But I have to admit that I am very curious. My friend Louise did a similar post on this a few weeks ago (were you satisfied with your responses, Louise?) and I had thought about doing it too. But then I forgot about it...until today.
A friend of mine emailed me a couple of months ago to let me know that she regularly reads my blog. She felt like she needed to tell me that, as it felt strange to her to have access to intimate details about my life without me knowing it. I appreciated her taking the time to let me know, even if she was completely "allowed" to read it.
Again, I'm not trying to make anybody feel guilty. I knew when I started this blog up that I would never know who all reads it. But I am interested in who my readers are. I have my regular commenters, my ocassional commenters, and my one-time commenters. But even with all those commenters combined, it's nowhere near the number of visitors that I get. If you scroll down on my sidebar, you'll notice I have a thing that shows where all of my visitors are from. And I KNOW that not nearly all of those people have commented.
So -- this is my request. If you read my blog (regularly, or just ocassionally), let me know (even if you think I may already know)! Go ahead...leave me a comment. Click on where it says "words of encouragement" at the bottom of this post and let me know who you are. You can choose to identify yourself as "anonymous" but I'd love it if you would include your name. If you don't feel comfortable leaving a comment, you could also just email me (at firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know that you're a reader. And while you're at it -- why don't you let me know what your favorite part of my blog is? The polls, the countdowns, etc. I love feedback!!
Come on...I know you're out there!!
