So, there I am...sitting in my denim blue-walled cubicle. Minding my own business. Decided to check my blog, because Joe said he had left a comment...I wanted to read it.
I clicked the address bar. Slowly scrolled down to blogger.com and clicked.
Then I signed in, and NO, I will NOT tell you the username and password at this point...maybe later. How fun would just a world-wide, open blog be? Possibilities...
Anyway, there to my amazement on my "dashboard" (odd name for it) it said I had 2 comments that needed moderating. I think to myself "Joe left two comments on one post? What a buffoon!!" I didn't say it aloud, for fear Joe would hear me, even though he lives 10 hours away. And I don't want Joe to know what I really think, because then he might stop reading my blog.
And there it was...a comment by someone I have never met. A "Leslie" somebody. Her comment was not angry. Was not contradictory. Was simply a pleasant comment.
It may seem odd, but it really made me feel good to know that someone else out there at least read one post on my blog. A small sense of satisfaction came over me. I believe I now know what John Grisham feels like when they alert him that his book is in it's 9,000th printing.
So, Leslie, thank you!!
