Sky blue, sky blue, sky blue, sky blue, sky blue.

I love comments. I do. My self-esteem is directly proportional to how many blog comments I get. I can refresh my blog for hours just looking for * one more. * On days that I've written a post that I'm really pleased with, I haunt my blog for feedback (usually nil) and then on days that I've flipped one out that shames me with its brevity/witlessness/fatigue, I get a handful of remarks. But regardless of where it occurs, I love that handful. I NEED that handful. It's what sustains me, makes me post another day, makes me shout (okay, murmur) into the void.

Then today I read this by Okie (also linked above), and while I know that posting nothing but a link means I won't get any feedback myself, that's absolutely okay. Because this is too nice not to be shared.

Rona said...

I love you. All of you. Dinana, I'm always worried about responding to comments in the comment section because I don't want to assume that anybody comes back to see if there's a response! That said, you and your husband had me ROLLING the other day.

Hello, Rona's Self Esteem. How are you? Better?

Here's a comment for you. I adore your blog and read every single post but I don't always comment. Even though I love comments on my blog.

True Fact...I'll post something meaningful on my facebook status and no one even appears to notice. However, post something about "I prefer sandwiches on toast and not just plain bread" and instantly there are 34 comments all debating toast vs. bread for sandwiches. Odd, odd online world.

For the record, I mostly prefer bakery bread, untoasted, with real mayo and meat and cheese and lettuce.

You already have the option for people to subscribe to your posts. So they don't have to come back to see, they can relax and be notified in the comfort of their own email account. Goober.

Okie, really?? I just got schooled. How long have I had this blog now? Two years? Without knowing that? Shoot. I'm such a poser.
