Comments on a Blog

I love having actual conversations with the people who leave comments on my blog.  I have been known to go back to blogs I comment on and continue the discussion with those writers.  See a pattern here?  I like to discuss, converse about, dissect with others –  about almost topic.

So I am suddenly looking at the number of comments on my blog differently.  All almost 2,500 of them have not been made by the visitors to my virtual home.  A good portion of them have been written by me.  I like that but then came Momalom.com’s second Five for Ten challenge.

Then comes the realization that I cannot keep up with the blog reading, let alone the comments on others’ sites or the conversations on my own.  So, as a sort of apology, I want to thank you all for reading what I have been writing recently.  AND, I want to tell you all I am still reading Five For Ten posts.  I have been overwhelmed by comments and blogs and just lost.

I needed to take some time to recharge.  My mind was in overdrive and I couldn’t get it back where it was going a reasonable speed.  I had so many things going on in life and in virtureal life – Thanks for that word, Aidan – that I would open up to write and just stare at the blank screen.

I have found a wonderful way to recharge – just leave it all behind.  I took some great day trips, read some good and not so good books, saw a movie at midnight.  Life is getting back to normal and so will my blog this week.

  1. It all has a way of catching up with us doesn’t it, and before you know it it can overwhelm and no longer be the fun it’s supposed to be. So good for you Nicki, for stepping back and recharging.

  2. Good job Nicki! Like I said the other day to HeatheroftheEO – mark all as read and move on. We can’t possibly read/comment on everything.

    I have noticed that suddenly you will drawn to read something in all those sitting in the reader, and it will be just what you needed to read. The posts you need to read will come to you!

    Have a great holiday weekend!

  3. The conversations are wonderful, aren’t they? I’m still trying to read 5-for-10 entries – but stopped for awhile. Overload! (Like being at a 10-day feast – afterward, it’s hard to eat.)
    :)

  4. Conversations is my favorite part, too, although I don’t always have the time to do it like I would like. You’re reading all the posts? You are a dedicated woman!
