Once Upon A Time In A Far Away Sand Dune
there was a girl named Nitney. Nitney decided she wanted to document thoughts and events in her life so she started a blog. After her first few posts she realized she looooved comments and 2 or 3 definitely wasn't enough. So after becoming addicted and needing humungous fixes she started posting just a little bit more. And still, only 3 or 4 comments.
Nitney recieved an email from a friend who linked her to Samn's blog. Samn had posted a good 3 or 4 times before she discovered it but she was a little afraid to comment. She didn't even know Samn! But after reading a few more posts and finding them rather funny she did it. She commented.
All the sudden a new world was opened up to her! She started clicking on other people who commented on Samns blog and laughed but didn't comment. After a month or so Nitney decided to take it one step further. She found a blog she had been to a few times and commented on Blistina's blog. Blistina was hilarious, Nitney noticed she had MILLIONS of comments on EACH post! Nitney also saw that she had a list of "gliber-bff's" and thought... wait? These are people Blistina is friends with ONLINE? Not in real life? Like maybe... me? After commenting Blistina added Nitney to her gliber-bff's and she felt so special!
Days went by and little by little other people started to find Nitney's blog and she found others and was very brave and commented some more! Many moons went by and she had quite the faithful followers which she was grateful for and had really come to apreciate.
Then.... she found something called, "Site Meter" through one of her smogarific bff's, Blary. So she added it to her site only to find that many more peole were stopping by her page than were commenting. Now, this broke her fragile little heart and she wondered.... do these people not have an opinion? Do they point and laugh and then run away? Are they shy? Have they not discovered the world of blog stalking friends? Maybe they are just perusing and don't care for this blog? Or maybe they just don't know how to comment.
So Nitney just wants to know who's looking and what they think. She told me to ask you all not to be afraid and to make yourself known if you wish. Or just take the poll on the top right corner and let her know if you like to read, but not comment. She also told me to tell you that if that's what you like to do, then that' s okay, as long as she makes you happy or even chuckle or just feel entertained.
Oh, and Nitney wants to thank all of her awesome smogarific bff's for being so faithful and commenting all over the place! She also says thank you to those who she knows in person that comment. She said she is excited and nervous to meet everyone next month. :)
