I don’t expect anyone to read my blog. I really don’t. I know people are busy with so, so many things. That said I LOVE to hear that someone–anyone has read my blog and liked something about it. It doesn’t matter if one story is all they’ve ever read or intend to read; it just makes my day. I feel like I could just skip all the way home.
BUT there are the people that have to be thorough. “Hey Esther, I read your blog today. It was so funny. I just love your blog! (I can feel my head swelling with pride.) I don’t read it very often though. I’m just so busy you know, and I have so much to do all the time…” Why, oh why, end with a downer? While that may be true and completely okay, it would have just been fine to leave that last part off don’t you think? He he! I realize people are busy, and I don’t expect them to read every post, but saying it out loud and leaving it hanging…well it’s just kind of deflating. Ha ha! I get this all the time!
And my favorite: I’ll tell you one on my mom, because she’s such a good sport, and because I think it’s hilarious. She was telling me that she has read every single blog post. She reads it each morning when possible and always goes back to read the ones that she for whatever reason had to miss. She is by far my biggest fan. She told me, “I even read the ones I’m not interested in!”
