OK guys. I'm all about not having my blog be private. My average number of comments per post in the past year has plummeted significantly, (I get it... I moved...no one here even knows I have a blog) so I can't afford to go private and alienate those few people I know read and/or comment on my blog (I'm talking about you, Alisa, Laurie, and Marci!)
But seriously, I've had this tracker on my side bar for a while now which shows me where in the world my readers are coming from, and I just want to say, who on earth are you?
No. Really. Who are you?
It's cool if you are a friend of friend's cousin trolling around during your own kid's naptime. No worries. I've been there. But don't just hang around, never introducing yourself. You wouldn't do that in real life, and though this is no where near real life, it's still a little rude.
I have a little list of places that have popped up on the tracker that are unfamiliar to me. Meaning, I can't for the life of me think of anyone I know who lives there. Most likely, I'm about to embarrass myself by publishing on my public blog that I have forgotten, where you, my good friend, who I care about, lives. But I hope maybe a few of you other readers who I haven't met in real life could take a minute, and tell me a little about yourself. If nothing else, maybe my comment numbers will be up...

All kidding aside, I love knowing people actually read what I post here, so go ahead and tell me you read it. High school aqcuaintances, parents of friends, brief college buddies, old friends, and strangers alike are all welcome here. Just as long as I know your name :)
