My blog

I love writing in my blog. I have to admit, there is some sort of intense pleasure I get from knowing that strangers will read the words I write. However, since Ally's been gone, I've been a little bit bummed because I only got 1 comment in a week. So I was thinking, no one cares even a little...no one ever reads this blah blah blah. But then I checked my stat counter, and it turns out, people do read this little blog here. And lots of those people come back day after day, and never say a word. These are the people that I know actually read this blog-Allison, Mom, Jon, me. Katie reads it sometimes-so hi to all you guys. The rest of you are a mystery.

I read www.dooce.com every day. I've gone through the archives and read everything the woman has ever written. But have I ever left a comment? Nope. Why? I don't know. I don't have anything to say to her, because I don't know her. So I get it and all. But then, I have to also admit to the burning curiosity in my gut. But I won't be pushy. :) I am especially curious about 3 people: 1 in Charlotte, 1 in Arizona, and 1 in Hickory. Thank you folks, for coming back and reading my ramblings. For some reason, the person who lives in Hickory makes me nervous...only because I have no idea who you are! You could be my principal, or the Chair of the School Board. You could be that creepy guy who comes into McGuires and stares a little too much. You could be some random person I've never met, or you could be a good friend of mine, hoping to score some interesting information I don't know you have.

Hey-Hickory person-who are you? And if you don't want to tell me that, will you at least tell me if I know you? If not, then I guess you'll just continue to be the only real mystery in my life at this point in time.

As always-email me anytime! Carmeneckard@gmail.com.

yeah. it's someone who found it one day in the last couple of months and read lots, and comes back. i have you labeled, so it's someone else.
