I still view reading someone’s blog as an illicit secret behavior that one should strive to conceal, like watching “Highlander: The Series.” It freaks me out when people refer to blogs in normal conversation – “Oh, didn’t you read my blog entry on that?” “Yeah, I read about that on your blog.” Admitting that you read someone’s blog on a regular basis is, like, admitting that you are interested in their life or something equally rude. A gentlewoman will read blogs but never talk about them.
Thinking about it, I guess I expected the readers of my blog to all be people I don’t know and will never meet. Or perhaps I envisioned my words spinning out into a yawning black void. Not sure.
Keep in mind that if you comment on this entry, you will be admitting that you read my blog.
