Yes, I *KNOW* You're Out There...
... I can hear you breathing.
Well, I can't hear you breathing, but I *do* know you're out there.
You come by and read my posts.
But you never say hello. (sob)
OK, well, a few of you do.
But there are more of you out there!
So. How about leaving a comment? You don't have to tell me your name if you don't want to (but I promise I won't try to hunt you down). I don't need to know your dating history or the PIN number from your credit card (but again, I can be trusted with that information as well).
Just say hi.
In fact, if you're at a loss for words, here are a few handy templates:
1) Hi Robin. I'm ___________ from _____________. I think your blog ___________.
2) Hello. I *love* your blog. Please send me a frozen sample of your genetic material so I can help spread you around the world. Here is my home address: ________________. My home phone is _________________, but you can also try my cell phone, which is ______________.
3) Dear Robin, I think you are seriously ____________________. I suspect that you have a ____________ ______________ or even a ____________ ______________ which should probably be treated by a _____________________. Sincerely, __________________ from _____________.
So do I make my point? I would really like to hear from some of my silent regulars, or even some of my vocal irregulars.
I'm still pretty new at blogging, and I've never been much of a comment responder, but here's one iron clad guarantee you can take to the bank:
If you comment, I will respond. If you ask a question, I will answer it. No comment will go unanswered, and no reasonable request will be denied.
Whew. After *that* sweetener, I guess I better stand back and look out!
So, I hope to hear from you! (...pleeeeeeease??)
