As I understand it, all across the blogiverse today is considered annual Delurking Day!
I mean, it's not that I mind talking to myself, that's kinda the norm around here. I can talk to the cats of course, but they aren't exactly sparkling conversationalists - know what I'm sayin?
When I started this blog over a year ago I had no idea that anyone would ever leave a comment. That's part of how I came up with the blog name. Not the most original I admit, but it meant something to me. Basically - here I am, living on this tiny island, surrounded by people who know me but really don't know me. And there you all are...wayyyyyy.....out....there. I figured I'd just be throwing out little slices of my life & times like messages in a bottle cast out on the ocean. And maybe if I was lucky enough, someone would pick one up.
And then some people did. Whether they responded to the knitting projects, stupid stories about my cats, or rants about islander life - I finally knew someone was listening and it gave me a reason to keep going. Since then I've made all sorts of new bloggy friends and have been blessed by their kindness, wit, and wisdom.
So even if you don't usually leave a comment, why not do it just this one time? I know there are those who comment regularly and others who just do it occasionally when something sparks their interest, but I also know there are those who just cruise by silently. I'm glad you're here, and I certainly hope you come back again! But just for today, give a quick hello. If not here, then maybe somewhere else you've never commented before. You could make a much greater impact than you think!
Okay, enough with the insights and the nagging, how about we move on? Here's what I have to offer...leave a comment and next time I will finally gather up, sort though, and post all the island images I've been meaning to share for the past couple weeks. Like this one:
