I am so freaking hungry right now… it’s almost 6pm and I’ve been dicking around on Other Peoples blogs all day. I took a run through my blogroll and found some people who have given up blogging, who have for various reasons either paused or vacated their blogs… thankfully no deletes, however. I did it mostly because Dame Wiggy has taken hers private, but also because it has been awhile since I’ve checked out the blogs in my blogroll. No doubt about it, it’s always weird to take a stroll through someone else’s conversations.
So then I spent an hour tapping the “Next” Arrow to see some random WordPress blogs… and, I’m not sure if this is done on purpose, but I ran through thirty or more blogs in a row with no or very few comments on them. Once I noticed it started getting depressing, then weird. Then I was going to make a list of them, like put their URL’s together in a post and maybe either move some traffic to their sites or show them some way of using tags and categories to find other bloggers with a similar interest and maybe they could connect and find out they both like Anime or Bob Dylan or firetrucks or purple silicon dildos and they could stay up later and later writing longer and longer and more intricate emails about people and places and things they have always found exciting and moving and worth sharing only with someone special who could turn a phrase in exactly the right way and write exactly the right thing at just the perfect moment and then they could share photos and images of themselves taken in moments of exasperation and triumph and then maybe show each other photos of themselves in ecstasy with their eyes desperate and longing and maybe a touch embarrassed then they could plan a meeting because their city is so close to their city and an open air cafe could be chosen and travel plans made and planes boarded and luggage found and when they meet their hands touch and there’s a spark and they date and love and they come together for years and years and years… but then I remembered how hungry I am and really, who needs that fucking responsibility?
So while I’m in the kitchen digging through dirty socks (don’t ask) trying to find enough change to buy a loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter… and 4L of Diet Aspartame, my question for anyone willing to answer on this No Post Day is…
Who was the first person to ever comment on your blog*, and are they still taking part in your blog?
*Hint: check your Comments Page… and if you don’t have a blog, do you still take part in the blog you first commented on?
