Is anyone out there?

I write this blog every few days or so. Sometimes when I write, I have an annoying voice in the back of my head that asks, "Is anyone reading this?"

Of course I know that my parents read my blog. And my grandmother in St. Louis. And I think Brian's Aunt Diane reads it. Shout out to all of you loyal readers! Thanks. But - I have no idea who else is reading. No one makes comments on my blog. Are there just silent lurkers who read and then slink away quietly? Or maybe people just really don't give a flying fig?

So - my question to you is this - is there anyone out there? If you are reading this - leave a comment. Drop me an email. Let me know you are out there. I feel lonely.

You're in my reader, Bridget! I guess I'm a lurker because I usually don't write any comments on blogs I read. Sorry! :)

I read. I usually read it through my google reader. In order to comment I have to go directly to your site. I'm lazy.

I guess I am a lurker. You are in my blogger/google reader so I peek into your life. Plus, with facebook status updates I feel very much in the "know". Keep writing. You will treasure the memories later.

So, let me get this straight...you have a blog? Just kidding! I am awful and forget to read it. Bad friend. So sorry. That just means you need to call me more. I prefer phone chats!! Love you!

I'm lurking because of you FB post... but if you wanna track hits and other web stats, you can using Google Analytics. I can't remember where exactly, but essentially you drop some code and the tracking begins. Pretty much everything... where the lurker is from, when they lurked, how they got there, all kinds of cool stuff. I get hits from all over the world, but that's because skateboarding is much more interesting than anything you write about! just joking!!! Hope all is well.
