As a follow up to Wednesday’s confidence shattering stats post, I pose this question.
Dooce. The One. Yeah, I know you read her. But have any of you actually ever posted a comment? And if so, why? No judgment, just curious what drives her commenters. ‘Cause I dunna get it.
I dig her. I do. But do you suppose she actually scrolls through and reads ALL 1,036 plus a GAZILLION comments generated every time she hits the publish button? How would it be humanly possible? (Damn. I KNEW it. Human? You be the judge.) Are there even enough hours in the day to form a gazillion reactionary thoughts in response to a gazillion comments?
Uh huh. Blah buh blah blah. Yeah. Totally. Bitch. Yeah not. Uh huh. Mkay. Whatever. Yeah, yeah … you love me. Stalker. WTF? Hi there. OMG. Yeah, I’m awesome. Totally awesome.
(Dooce, if you’re out there, dish sister. Inquiring minds want to know.)
I read her every day, but have never left a single comment. I enjoy her posts with my morning Pepsi, but leave it at that. Who wants to be one of the masses echoing the same sentiments as hundreds of commenters before? What satisfaction is there in that? Seriously. There’s only so much wit to go around.
Hmmm … thinking of …
Soooo, yeah. I think in pictures. Which, unless you’re new, you knew. New knew. Sununu.
Just to be clear, I’m NOT suggesting in any way, shape or form that you stop commenting. (Because I am so influential and all powerful.) Spunk makes the world go round. And her awesomeness goes without saying. Just like all the other larger than life blog stars out there.
I’m just interested in … your comments.
