Before I had a blog, I read a lot of blogs. A whole lot of blogs. Blogs written by seemingly nice, very talented people. And I never -- let me be clear: never -- commented.
I felt like people who commented were already in some kind of club, and I was too late to get in. I didn't really know what to say, either. In some cases, I worried I'd be all "Your paintings are really amazing! I'm impressed!!!" and then it would turn out to be Picasso's blog or something. Or worse, "Hey, Ansel. I'd love to see some of your color photos!" That would be mortifying.
(I'm gonna call myself "Picasso's Blog" when I take up spoken-word poetry. And it's gonna be slamming!)
Let me assure you that I am no Ansel Adams or Pablo Picasso. And, now that I have a blog, I realize that it is really nice to know someone has come by.
Apparently January 8-12 is De-lurking Week -- the time to leave a comment wherever you go. For those of you who already do, know that here at old Dr. B.'s, we're very pleased and grateful. For those of you who haven't or don't, test it out. See what you think. It will likely make someone's day.
