Checking In

Ahh, a moment to Blog. We have been super busy lately and the babies have not been napping at the same time. Right now they are both asleep so I thought I'd take some time to Blog. I had written an entry about the 4th of July parade, but for some reason it got lost in Blogger space. It was fun and Oliver enjoyed it. He wasn't as excited as I thought he would be though. He just stared at everything going by wondering what the heck was happening. (Darn it, Morgan's awake!) He had more fun back at my parents' house running from pool to sand box and back all afternoon.
So, I have been surfing around checking out some other Blogs lately - mostly Mom blogs - and I have discovered that there is a term for people like me and most people who read my Blog. "Lurkers". Doesn't that sound creepy? Apparently that is what people are called who read other's blogs but don't comment on them. I understand that people want comments on their blogs (hint, hint) because it makes you feel like people are actually enjoying what you write and that you aren't wasting your time by writing. But, is it so bad for someone to just read it for the sake of reading? I don't know. I guess I do want to know who is reading my blog. But there are some people who have like 32 comments on each entry - does it really matter to them who else is reading? I will admit there are some blogs that I would NEVER comment on because they are people who I knew through other people at Wheaton and they would probably find it strange that I am reading about their daily lives. But it is so stinking interesting and now I am hooked. I don't like being called a "lurker" though. Makes me feel icky.
How about you? Are there blogs you read that you don't want to the writer to know about? Let's discuss...
