Anybody out there???

Hello???
I kept wondering, because just looking at the comments, I might as well stop this blog and keep emailing to those who are interested. Then not so long ago The yarn harlot had something in her blog that peompted a lot of response starting with : "I read your blog regurarly, but rarely comment..."
That made me think why? Being a raveler knitter and a blogger I know that comments can make (or sometimes break) our day. They are what keeps posts coming. They show the writer that he/he is not standing in the middle of nowhere shouting into the big nothing. If I bump into a blog (which I do quite often) I try to leave comments even if it is a short one just to let know I was there, more so if I have something to say...(The same goes for ravelry FOs. I try to comment on nas many as I can... because I love getting comments. "Do as you want to be done to you" is that how it is said in English?
And then I thought I would try to see how many and actually who comes over to read my ramblings... And I find there are actually quite a few visitors around, and some of you are regulars!!!
The counter or the feedjit widget does not actually tells me who comes, but I can see where from. Some of the info does have an actual meaning, like I know Kecskemét is my sister, Brussel is my friend, Kim, Seward, Alaska is Nicole, Clearwater, Florida is Angela, right? But there some more regulars, like someone from Athen... (Hello there I am happy to have you around), or Canada, or Australia, or... Welcome all of you!
Now, that I've seen there is someone actually reads this... No I can't promise to post more regurarly (though I will try to) or that I would write more deeply (though I would like to try that)... But at least I know.

When I was in high school I shared my diary with several of my girlfriends. This is kind-of like that. It creates a bond, a closeness which overcomes the physical distance. It's also an inspiration. And a consolation, when I think "see, I am not the only one thinking or doing this or that..." ! But you were my friend before the blog and will remain so, of course ! It's just a nice way to be informed of what you are up to, besides our other "cyber-conversations" !

Well I agree it is booring to blogg when you do not get any comments. I had friends asking me why I did not post on my blog and that they liked to read a year after one of my long blog breaks! None of the mentioned had ever commented one single row...

Well I try to comment, at least when I can remember my password. Bothe here and on Ravelry.

Happy knitting from Finland.

I don't live in Kecskemét, though it usually says so as I detected.
Keep writing and maybe I will comment sometimes when I am not too shy to do it.

I always enjoy reading your posts whenever I actually look at my ravelry links (which isn't as often as I should!)

you are one of my favorites!

Anett did I ever tell you the word "Kecskemét" when I try to pronounce it, sounds like some Flemish dialect expression for "chicken market" ?! LOL !

peony said...

No, Kim, you never did, but the word actually is coming from the word goat (which is "kecske" in Hungarian.)

I read your blog regularly as well. If you see Petaluma, California on your reader, that's me:)))

I enjoy reading about your resourcefulness, your knitting stories and I think you are a strong, modern woman.

I guess, I'll make as many grammar mistakes as it possible, but I have to share my latest amazing academic discovery - that I’ve already registrated to the site so I can log in!! I clearly see that this incomparable finding soon going to shape up the whole world of your comment-system. I feel the Nobel price is closer day by day...

anyway, I had to give a sign of life here, cuz freemail is putting on hiatius. how lovely.
so keep doing all the stuff. you see, people loves you :P
now, I'll make a nice example and post something. and take my word: you don't even miss comments, if there's no comment box on your blog xD

yeah, that's me

S ha még magyarul is írnál pár sort, még annál is többen olvasnának, hiszen pezsgő kötős-horgolós élet folyik magyarul is. ;-)

Fél órával ezelőtt gondolkodtam itt, hogy írjak-e neked. Erre ott a megjegyzésed a blogomon. :) Annyit akartam csak, hogy én nemrég találtam ide Kati segítségével (1001fonal), és nekem az is jó, ha csak angolul írsz, kommentelni nem fogok sokat, ritkán szoktam, valahogy nem jut rá idő, de szívesen olvaslak, kérlek folytasd.
