I Was Failing Blog Social Skills 101
Ok, so, it's true. I am a blurker. And I have only recently been realizing that's not the coolest thing to be in blog-world. Because I am not a creepy or sneaky type (I don't think so anyway), I figured I was just harmlessly reading peoples' blogs, enjoying a smile here, a bit of wisdom there, maybe some common understanding, etc. Oh sure, I've posted a comment the odd time, but not on most of my regular round of blogs by far. I'm generally the type who figures that if others have already posted my thoughts on a matter, or if I have nothing brilliant to say (which is often the case - that is, not feeling brilliant), then there's no point in typing just to see myself in type...but maybe I have been missing part of the point, and am happy to try being a bit more generous in my commenting. So here goes - I am about to begin de-lurking!
