Anybody out there?


Sometimes I wonder how many people read any given blog post, so for this one, I am asking you to leave a comment, even if it is just "I read it." For everyone who leaves a comment, I will send you a handwritten card. If I don't already have your address, please email me at koponick@comcast.net, or leave it in your comment. If you would rather I send a card to one of your kids, or someone else who you think needs a little pick-me-up, please email me their name, address and enough info about them so that I have something to say in their card.

Looking forward to seeing who is reading, where you are from, and sending you a card so you know someone is thinking about you too!!

I love reading your blog!

You inspire me to keep mine updated too! I know only very few people read it, but it helps to keep a journal of sorts.

I READ and LOVE your blog Julia! I just wish I had more things to say, otherwise I would write one too. I appreciate your blog. :-) It is wonderful to see your thoughts on life and see how wonderful your family is...

Good morning! And hello, Eva!

Hillary said...

Yes, yes! I am now a reader. :) It's nice to get to know family that is far away through their blogs. I love it. And, I also wonder who in the world reads my blog! :) It's kind of mysterious.

I read your blog. :)

I think you express yourself extremely well. I've just recently tuned in to your blog as I've begun reading The Skinny. I look forward to other insights!

I stop by ocassionally, Julia. You are a very good writer, by the way!

Just me again. I was pondering your question "anybody out there?" I've wondered the same thing, and have decided that MOST people are not "Blog Commenters". I've had lots of people say they love to read my blog every day, but those same people have NEVER commented. It's just not their way. Or they're too busy to leave comments. Maybe you've noticed that my children almost NEVER leave a comment. I know they're reading, because they tell me so, and when we chat (real time) we talk about the things I have written, but they just don't comment online, even though I'm pretty sure they love me. :) As satisfying as blog comments can be, I've learned to simply accept that most readers are "stalkers" as horrible as it sounds! And I'm okay with it. I'll keep on writing in my blog and I hope you'll keep writing in yours, too. :) It's something we do for OURSELVES.

Dorothy,

I agree that this is something I do for me, and that the best reason to write a blog is that I have something to say. It is nice to get comments, but I don't intend to specifically ask for them very often. :-)

I read it! I don't often leave comments (on any blogs), but I do keep up.
