So the post last week asking for book recommendations really got me thinking. . .Who are the people who read my blog? I got some fabulous recommendations, plus a tiny bit of insight into some of you. Which left me wondering.
There are several people who comment regularly, and I feel like I know you, even if mostly it's through reading your blogs and your comments. And every once in a while I get an email from someone out of the blue, just to say hello and that they like LG. These absolutely delight me.
So far I've gotten no hate mail, and while I've heard that you're not "made" till someone hates you or something you're written, that's fine with me. Being a small-time happy blogger with no hate mail suits me very well.
I won't make the joke of "to the four of you who read my blog" - because I know there are more than four. I check my stats, because of course I'm curious!
So if you'll indulge me, and I hope some of you will, I'd love it if you'd tell me something about yourself. What I'd most like to know is if you're a man or a woman, and how you wound up here, and if you read regularly, what appeals to you.
Seriously, I'm not looking for "Oh, because you're just the most fabulous thing since peanut butter!" I mean, how awesome would that be? But I'm not soliciting compliments. I just want to know. I know why I keep reading the blogs of otherwise complete strangers, and I have different reasons for each one.
Like, maybe you're rooting for me to stop falling for the Dementors of the world and driving perfectly reasonable men away and actually settle down with a nice guy. Or maybe, like in The Office (or the British version, anyway), the cringe factor is high in many of these little posts and you find that quite compelling. Or maybe you want tips on fabric dyeing. Or my grammar impresses you. Or, as has been suggested by a couple men in my life, maybe you just like that sidebar picture. I dunno. But I'd like to.
And, since obviously I'm asking a favor of you, if you don't feel like saying the above, but rather are in the mood for supplying other information like, say - your favorite color, what you ate for breakfast, a pet peeve, your current mood - anything at all - go ahead. Clearly, whether you eat Cap'n Crunch for breakfast and drive a silver Honda doesn't tell me a whole lot about you, but you know I'll take it and run wild with it in my imagination.
Seriously, please indulge me.
