I just noticed I'm over 6,000 hits!

I can't believe I went from 3,000 hits to 6,000 hits in such a short time. I'm happy to see that a few of you feel comfortable enough to leave a comment once in a while. What a shock that people find it interesting to come read my ramblings. Thanks to Punkin, Gordana and the few faithful who usually say hi, I love to see the feedback. What a kick in the head to realize that 6,000 people came to see the info on my blog either by accident or on purpose. I have a request? what would make you comment? What drives you to comment on other blogs? I'm not really stressing about how many comments I get because I do this as a way to relax and express myself but why do you comment on someone Else's blog? Do you feel a connection and want to share? Empathy for the writer? Common situations? Just curious? if you were curious, out of 6029 hits I had 499 responses. I'm an engineer I always do the statistics. Just part of my mind set. Life is Good!

  1. Why do I comment?

    I comment when a blogger asks why I comment

    And when I feel some particular connection to what the person writes about in a post

    And when I have something that seems worth saying

    And because I know it's nice to get comments now and again.

  2. I find it amazing the connections that I have made through the knitting community. Total strangers but virtual friends who have cheered me on, listened to my angst, brought a smile to my face or tears to my eyes. There are threads that reach out through the internet and allow us to touch each other.

    I respond when I find something of interest or when I just want to say kudos. I am in awe of what people are doing and how they are doing it, the lives that are lead and what people find interesting and/or strange.

    I comment when I feel a connection to the person or when something they have done or said inspires me.

    I have always liked visiting your blog. It is fun and inspiring. I feel very fortunate to have found your blog early on. I think you were one of the very first to comment on my blog. Your quality of character shines through. I would also like to say that when you speak of Mrs. T., obviously a special person, in such loving ways it warms my heart and makes the world a little brighter.

    And I always enjoy reading about those fun happenings you find along the way - Thong Man!

  4. I tend to comment when I have something interesting to add, or if I really like something someone said, or if it sparks a train of thought in me that I want to share.

  5. Hi Jerry -- I comment when I feel like I can add to the "conversation" if I were there in person. Also, when I have time! Sometimes I only have time to skim. I'm back in town, so I'll see you guys soon.

  6. I comment because...

    + I like/feel a connection with what I see/read
    + someone has asked for advice/feedback/a response
    + the person is a friend of mine
    + I want to be supportive/spread the bloggy love
    + someone's having a contest (yes, I'm totally shallow!)
    + comments are warm and fuzzy making

    Life IS good!

  7. In reply to your comment on my blog, thanks so much for the invite you extended to go to the knit in in San Diego, but I can't commit to it right now, lots of stuff going on, don't know when I'll really be able to go! But I want to!

  8. I comment if I feel I have something to add. Otherwise, I just enjoy and agree with what you say.

    I also comment if the blogger asks a question for the purpose of feedback.
