How many of you read blogs regularly? Do you read a certain type of blog, like a religious blog? blogs about the environment? World issues? Your friend's blogs? Are you frequent commenters, or do you only comment occasionally (or not at all)? Do you write a blog? If so, how often? Do people usually read your blog (as far as you know)? If so, do you know how many? Do they post comments? I'm just curious about this blog thing. I either write to share things I think are interesting, or to keep friends updated on what's up with me. I read blogs I find interesting, and comment on between 75 and 50% of the posts I read. I like hearing how people are doing and I like commenting so they know I'm interested in what they have to say (as well as to share an opinion). Since I write mostly for other people (I have a journal for my personal writing) I like to get feedback. However, I don't want people to feel like they have to leave comments if they have nothing to say, so I thought I'd just see who is out there reading (if there's anyone), to decide whether I should bother blogging here. I mean, if the only people who read my blog are the people I should just email anyway, then it's superfluous. Right? Right.
