This blog is one week old today, and what a learning experience it has been. With a fair amount of trial-and-error (and a small amount of swearing), I managed to learn my way around Blogger. After it ate one of my posts, I learned to write with Word Pad so I could save my work and then transfer it over (again, with a small amount of swearing). Mostly, though, it's been fun, and Master is enjoying it, and that's what really counts.
My one week-old tenure in the blog world has given me something else besides learning what RSS is (seriously did not know, sigh). It's given me a new appreciation for the writers of the blogs where I so frequently lurk. I appreciate your dedication to writing on a regular basis and your willingness to be so open and to share such intimate parts of your life, the good and the bad. A tip of my hat to all of you, and my thanks.
And yes, I used the "L" word up there--I am a big-time lurker. There are blogs I have read for several years, and I have never come out of the dark and into the light world of commenters, not even on LOL day. I can't explain why; often I don't feel as if I have anything useful to add to the conversation. Plus, I commented on one of my favorite blogs one time, my comment was taken the wrong way, feelings got hurt, and I felt terrible.
So, what is my point with all of this? I guess to thank the bloggers that I read, to apologize for being such a professional lurker, and to state that I will attempt to comment more often (key word, attempt. No promises. Lurking can be a hard habit to break.).
