Why blog?

When I first started blogging, I said all sorts of noble things, like "It's okay if no one ever reads my blog." and "I'm just doing this as a creative outlet." Then I got a comment. Hmmm. Turns out, I am a comment junkie. I love getting comments, I thrive on seeing my blog name on other people's blogroll, and I absolutely live for Michele's comments games. On Friday night, I was complaining to Hubby about the total disaster that is Blogger Comments lately, and he said "Poor Internet Exhibitionists. No one to shove dollar bills into your thongs." That's right, he called me, you, and all the rest of the blogger world "internet exhibitionists". The man has a way with words.

Don't cha just love 'em though? You, my friend, however exibitionistic you are, are great for me ego! This painting thing is not so new for me in the sense that I've always had the ideas...but DOING it is another beast! Most of the wall and flowers are stencils BTW. Jandresslerstencils.com. The rest was a surprise to even me! Thanks!

The funny thing is...on the blogs that you think will bring the comments pouring in - no one does. I have found it is the inane blogs that get the most comments.

i think your husband has captured the essence of comment desire rather accurately. well done him!

He's right. It's nothing to be ashamed about. It feels good and it's not illigeal.

Does he blog?

No, he doesn't blog, but he reads this one. Occasionally he follows my blogroll. He's pretty impressed with Honestyrain's comment!

You mean you're actually getting dollars in your thong?

I am so getting ripped off.

I've got my dollar!

Now, where am I supposed to put it, again?

I've got a fiver for ya, sweetie -- go treat yourself to something nice. ;-)

Comments are addictive -- nothing wrong with that. There are far worse things we could all be doing with the Internet!

Have you noticed??? I've finally figured out how to comment!!! Stick a dollar in my thong - great comment from Tim - even if it was more than a little disparaging. I'm like you - love the feedback - makes me feel that what I have to say has some importance to someone.
Love Beth
