Okay, that's it...

Update: Sorry, people...I went on a tyraid yesterday...It was induced by an over-consumption of coffee cake...If you would like to read this blog, be my guest, otherwise, ignore it and pretend that it never happened...
Updated update: Apparently I can also blame the following blog on pregnancy, so...


It's the moment of truth, people!
I need to know how many people actually read my blog. I am not going to not blog if there are only 2 people reading it, but I would like to know by show of hands how many people stop by my tiny piece of cyberspace.


I live for comments. Really. I really, really do.


I live to entertain. I work and rework my blogs to make people laugh. Sad, I know, but it's something to live for!


So, by show of hands, how many of you are there out there??
Please leave a comment! You don't have to say anything. You can just put a smiley face or whatever, just something to indicate that you are in fact a real person pit-stopping at my blog!
Yeah, yeah, you can say whatever you like about lacking faith in my readers, or being a comment hog, but the fact is EVERYBODY likes comments, and EVERYBODY likes to know that what they have to say matters to someone else! I would just like to know how many someone elses there are!
Besides, I hate it when most of the comments on a post are written by me...


P.S. Before you get all cranky at me, I KNOW there are people out there who have read my blog in the past who have commented, and I have never read or commented on their blogs. And the reason for this is because you people (you know who you are) STILL haven't invited me to your private blogs. So, if you don't have more comments, that is why. I always comment if people have commented on my blog. Just an incentive. My e-mail is shydandelion2000@yahoo.com just in case you feel like adding me...


I really don't like commenting on other people's blogs if they don't even read my blog. I take it as a kind of insult. I mean, yes, there are those of you who have commented on my blog in the past, who don't always. That is fine. But it does bother me when people invite me to read their blogs, and never read mine. It seems rude. Really. I mean, if you just wanted me to ooo and ahh over your life and you want to completely ignore mine, just say so! Don't try and fool me by popping up in my blog once and telling me that you would love for me to stop by yours. Dude. Blogs are a two way communication. You can't tell me they aren't. It's like prayer.


Can you imagine if God had a blog? Chances are, he would post something and nobody would read it, and then he would spend his time reading other people's posts, and commenting, and they would only notice him if he commented, and never think of him if he didn't. Or check his blog. I suppose you could look at the scriptures as sort of primitive blog. And that's probably why he hasn't set one up. I mean, if people aren't going to respond to paper and ink, why would they respond to text on a screen?


Have I taken this too far? I am not trying to be sacrilegious...

May I be the first to say that I most certainly do read your blog and love to hear about your life.

And may I be the first to say that I have been rotten lately about commenting on anybody's blog.

I'll repent if you keep writing. Deal?

I read your blog... me... me, me, me, blah, blah, me, me, me, me, blah, blah, blah...
You know, you can use google analytics to find out where your hits are coming from around the world and across the country. :)

Yeah! And how about that guy from Malaysia that comes snooping around sucking up all of our really nifty words and selling them later on the Black Market in Jakarta?

Dara I love your blog. Blogging has become my life line with my friends down in Utah, sad to say but it is true. I love to check other peoples blogs, especially yours because you are always updating it and writing something new and funny. I feel that in someway I am connected to you still because of the things I am able to read about your family. I don't comment every time but I do enjoy your posts. By the way, I don't think you can blame this on coffee-cake, I think this is definitely prego induced. ;)

Your blog is the perfect journal whether it is read by you or thousands :) I don't check it everyday, but I catch up when I can.

Um, wow! That's a pretty good show of hands so far! I admit, I really like comments, too and get jealous when I go to some blogs and they have like 50 comments!

BTW, those cut offs with the lace were da bomb, yo! My mother couldn't complain too much because they were modest. It funny to learn what people remember about me! :)
