I've Cheated Myself By Not Commenting

When I started blogging 4 years ago I thought of my action of sharing family stories was solitary.  I enjoyed writing about the silly things my little ones did and that was that.  I was my own Erma Bombeck (if you're too young to know who I'm talking about Google her, she was fantastic).  Then, I started to receive comments from... strangers.  I was actually a little scared.  My reaction didn't really make much sense since I was the one putting personal information into the cyber world, why wouldn't someone respond? 

 

As the months went by I began lovely blog/pen-pal relationships with these "strangers".  Here we were sharing our life stories, and some personal e-mails, and it was wonderful to have these connections!  Then, and I don't really know why, I just sort of stopped.  I stopped replying to comments, I stopped visiting those that had visited my blog world.  I didn't mean to be rude, I think I just became overwhelmed with the "connection".  Can I claim shyness?  I don't know.

 

Here is something I have learned from my comment retreat; I've cheated myself.  I've lost support and kindness from my fellow bloggers.  I've thrown away lots of much needed laughs and much needed advice.  Those in the Mom Blogging community are incredibly giving!  How could I put up a "virtual" fence and think that blogging was solitary, it's not.

 

I've learned my lesson and I'm going to return to the world of being a "Mommy Blogger" and embrace it.  It's a tough world out there, and we need all the support we can get.
