What? I Can’t Hear You…

Wow. New traffic coming today from all over. It truly warms my heart. And for everyone passing through – whether you’re new here or you’ve been here before – I just wanted to extend the invitation (again) to feel free to leave comments behind. The option is there because I like to hear from you. Feel free to speak up!

I always wonder why people don’t leave comments. Could you clue me in? Is it a matter of fear? Are you afraid you aren’t welcome? Disagree with what I had to say but you don’t want to say so? I always like to hear what other people have to say. Even if it’s different from my opinion. And you know what they say – a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet. I’ve met some really great people thanks to comments left behind. Come on … you can do it. Click the link and say hello. I promise – it doesn’t hurt and I’ll be nice.

And how cool is Trackback? It’s so neat to see who has written a post based on yours. So if you’ve been wondering if you should upgrade, I highly recommend it.

Boy, where’d you get them cookies. You’re busting out cookies like them and you’re the top blodgex link. I should bust me them out. Better then a car alarm goin’ off for three hours in Brooklyn. What’s up with that??

Hello! {{OUCH!!!}} That hurt.

Heh, I always wonder why only a small percentage of visitors leave a comment as well. I assume that there is some inhibition there. I actually find most interesting the people who check the site almost every single day for a year and yet never say hello in a comment or an email.

Makes me think that the government assigned someone to keep tabs on me… 🙂

I still think TrackBack is lame, or at least of limited value. The only value to it that I can see is linking to some A-list blogger in hope of basking in their reflected glory for a day and scamming traffic from them.

*wonders what to comment about* Heh, I only leave comments when I feel that I have a reaction or opinion (or am reminded of a story) about what you’re talking about 🙂 I hate to leave them just to leave them because then I just feel like I’m spamming or something 🙂

I don’t know why I rarely leave comments. Maybe it’s because whatever I had to say was already said by someone else. Maybe I don’t have a good response (or even a response at all). Maybe I think my response seems too short (“lol!” or “::hugs::” for example). I dunno. Whatever the case, I’m always reading, just not always commenting. =)

re: why no talkie-talkie?
shyness perhaps. i do the same thing here i do at parties. watch others interact. listen to their comments. enjoy the banter. enjoy just *being there*. chime in when a good opportunity arises and a witty comment bubbles up to the surface…

Ok, I think there is a conspiarcy going on here. Every couple of morning I go to Plaid Pantry to get a big sugar cookie with pink frosting. Yes, a Big Pink Cookie. It is my favorite sinful treat. Every since the debut of your new domain none of the Plaids have my cookies in stock. 🙁 Seriously, I love the new domain name, and it is nice to get my daily big pink cookie fix with out the weight gain. 🙂

Regarding the comments – I find myself reading sites, and thinking, I agree, but when I go to type the actual comment, having just the words, “I agree” seems pretty sad on my part. Maybe it’s because I feel the need to be funny, or witty, and when I can’t come up with a zinger, I don’t leave a comment.
Which is rather ironic, seeing as I myself am a comment whore.

And regarding your sharing of the cookies? I’m thinking there are a few guys who want in on that. 😉

I think everyone’s covered what I was going to say about the comments… shyness, feel like my comment will be pathetically pithy, don’t have a whole lot to say on the blog post… it goes on… Also, some blogs are pretty clique-y and hard to break into the comment-love they have going on.

Oh, I am all about the non-clique. I am the type of person that back in high school had friends that were in the band, on the football team, cheerleaders, geeks, just the average people, drill team, punks (for lack of better term) – whatever. I ignored the clique boundaries. I’ve always found it makes life more interesting! 🙂

Alright, Alright, I confess, I’m a lurker… I’ve never commented here before. I’m properly shamed. I shall go have a Time-Out after I’ve finished posting. 😉

I just had to tell you that I love your new domain name. Oddly, I also dislike you (kidding). ::grins:: Ever since you moved here I cannot get those yummy pink sugar cookies out of my head. I’m going to have to go get some now… and it’s all because of you! I hope you feel sufficiently guilty!

*goes to stand in Time-Out*

Hi. I’m B.A. I like long walks on the beach, quiet evenings in, and motorcycling. Sometimes I make up movie scripts in my head and never write them down. When I was a kid I had very long hair, braces and glasses. My friend Shlomo has a nice website. I like cats, but I like kittens more than cats. Once I tried to be friends with someone on the web, but after a couple weeks she started telling everyone that I was a liar. Now I feel free to interact with others on the web, but I bear in mind that they might turn mean later. I work in advertising, retouching pictures for cigarette ads. I live in Chicago. I had the best octopus I’ve ever eaten in Rio de Janeiro. I play saxophone, and I’m trying to learn guitar, but it’s really hard. I can be found on the IM as CoachieX. Have a nice day.
