Apparently this week was some sort of big push to get blog readers to quit lurking and to say “Hi” or something in the comment section of whatever blog they read. For the most part, I didn’t take part in that ritual. If I read your blog, I’ll post a comment as I feel necessary, with an actual response. I understand why these bloggers need to call out to their readers, because the active readership according to the statistics don’t necessarily match up to the “front-end” activity.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to ask you to post a comment here just for the sake of posting a comment.
I started this blog because as a parent, as somebody who reviews videogames and home video, and as a music lover, I felt that I had something to contribute to … whatever. Turns out, I do, but that contribution I do have also winds up preventing me from blogging as regularly as I would like to. I’m talking about spending time with my kids, as well as working on this here website. I have plenty of ideas and topics (like why I’ll never buy any of my kids shoes that light up) but getting around to actually gathering my thoughts together let alone typing them out coherently is a time consuming process that usually takes a back seat to writing the reviews or trying to post the news.
What’s the point of this post? I’m not entirely sure to be honest. I want to acknowledge the whole “de-lurker” thing, as well as my role in the grand scheme of blogging (which isn’t much, I assure you I know). I also wanted to say “Hi” to whoever (or is it whomever) is reading this, I’m still here, even though days go by without any sort of post. I won’t make any false promises about blog posts every other day to compel you keep coming back, but I do want to try, even if it is just for me.
