Affirmation



My blog is worth $16,371.66.


How much is your blog worth?


I was visiting Kim and she had a link to this site which tells you how much your blog is worth. I can only imagine the intricate details of the formula they used to calculate the monetary value of a blog, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that this blog is worth more than my acting career (hey, if I made that kind of money in less than a year, I'd be eligible for health insurance through SAG. At present, all I am eligible for is participating in the nominations for this year's SAG awards, an experience about which I will blog about in the future).

Apparently, it is de-lurking week in the blogosphere. I found this out when I visited Amanda's blog. I didn't actually leave her a comment (I have done so in the past, I will do so in the future, I am not sure I qualify as a lurker on her blog).

What this tells me is that it is a new year and everyone is feeling a bit low. Maybe we made some resolutions, maybe not, but it is likely that we all did a bit of stock taking and found ourselves wondering if our voices were being heard. I am no different.

So if you are reading this, please leave a comment. I will even put a link to your blog or website in my sidebar if you like (and, cough cough, if you do the same for me), but you have to let me know you're there. Because, as the photo to the left says, in cyberspace, no one can hear you read.

Because no matter how confident you are, sometimes you just need to know that you are not alone.

I read almost daily but am often still half-asleep when I visit. Your entries tend to be more intellectual or abstract than many other bogs that I read, so to just reply and say "Oh yeah. Me too." seems wrong somehow. I often mull over something I've read here for awhile, so know that I do read even if I do not always comment.

When I moved blogs I did not bring sitemeter with me. WP shows search terms, and some of those are weird enough for me. I was a little wigged out by people who visited 30x a day or stayed for an hour or two, yet never commented.

Hellooooo! De-lurking here. You are not alone. I have been reading your blog for a while now, even have you linked in my own sidebar. What first attracted me were the many pictures of black dresses in unusual places.

I just wanted to say hi!

I am reading! And I found you because i am obsessed with my counter on my blog and I saw that Kind of Crunchy Mama linked to me, and also linked to you, so here I am! And here I return.

Just checked the "came from" on my blog counter and today I found that someone found me because they searched "petite women look ridiculous." Yesterday I had "my muffin top hurts when I wear jeans." Good times.

Keep blogging!
