Milestone

I noticed that my last post pushed me over another big blogging marker as it was post number 200 (sadly the topic of baby urine was not the most monumental way to celebrate such an accomplishment). On the KSA Daily's 100th birthday I asked people to leave comments indicating whether or not it was still worth my time and energy to record my insights and experiences in this fashion. After such a blatant plea for feedback and encouragement, I was sadly left with only four comments. Only four people took the time to respond, only four people asked that I continue. And so for those four people I have doubled my efforts and written another one hundred posts. But I must admit it is sometimes hard to keep going when I hear back more often from almost complete strangers, than I do from friends and family.

Recently one of my blogging friends asked her reading audience:

Is what I write about really that boring, or do you just have nothing to say???

You can be completely honest with me. Why doesn’t the majority of my readers leave a comment (that’s you if you’re reading this)???? I am just curious.

I read every single one of your Blogs. I think many people just aren't technically inclined yet. Plus, it's also still a very new medium that is still in the growth stage. I make the blogs I keep up with my home pages, so I can check them every day. If more people knew how to use the extra tabs as home pages they might read more often.
Your is the best blog I keep up with.

K, I have to admit that I'm a lurker. Yes, a lurker. I read your blog at least once a week but never leave a comment. A sad, pathetic lurker. But, having confessed that and all...I love your blog! You are the queen of blogging and my inspiration. Seriously. I want to blog more after reading your posts!

I think I was one of the four last time. I love your blog! Please keep posting. I am afraid to comment because when I did in the past you stopped posting. I thought maybe anonymous readers make you nervous. Your views of the people and the culture are so interesting, and you are are such a delight. Keep posting, please!

k, PLEASE keep posting! I love reading it and remembering life of old. It's a miniture walk down memory lane for me where I visit you and all my other friends from what sometimes feels like a dream. I love being able to stay connected with you in this way! :0)

Karen, I think you do a great job with your blog! I read it all the time! It's a way that I keep in touch with you and see a world that I'll never see myself.
Thanks so much!
