There's something I've been meaning to tell you. OK. So I will take a deep breath and confess here. At the risk of incurring the wrath of my readership, or even losing the very few that I have left after I moved.
*phew* are you still there??
I am greedy like that. Want comments, but don't want to reply. Lazy also. :-)
Mostly, this is like homework for me that I don't want to do. :) Often the banter is fun, but most of the time, I've nothing to add to what a commenter has said. And I feel a bit silly while replying.."true" "i agree" "indeed" and such. Doesn't do good for my self-esteem, being as it is that I'm a rather silly person to start with. And I'm running out of these affirmitive expressions too.
So in the interest of my self-esteem :), I am not going to respond to every comment, unless I've something to add, clarify or refute.
OTOH, i know i always follow up my comments on others blogs to see what they've responded. And was heartbroken on that one ocassion when a certain blogger replied to everybody else's comment except mine! (you know i'm talking about you!! :@). :) But let's put this conflict aside for the time-being. When I started blogging, I thought it was the norm- you comment, you get replies. You blog, people comment, you reply. But I can't help seeing the pointlessness of my replies. now. After 70-odd posts. Did I mention I'm slow also? :-)
This is a trial phase. It might well end up that I can't keep my mouth shut for too long and end up wanting to butt in every now and then even when i've nothing of importance to say. :-)
What do y'all think????(just making sure y'all still comment! ;))
