I guess the blog world isn't as large as I thought it was. A while back, someone named Suzie Petunia posted a comment about my running skirt on my blog. I had no idea who she was, nor how she happened upon my blog. When I went to her blog, I saw she had a link to a blog of a friend of my sister's. I deducted that she must have been visiting Megan's blog, from there went to Emily's blog, and from there to mine. Whoa. I thought it was just bizarre that someone I didn't even know was reading words I wrote. But just wait; it gets crazier. We all know that I have been bored at work lately and consequently, I have been doing some blog hopping. My sister-in-law just started keeping a blog (it's locked for the lucky few, otherwise I'd link to it). From hers, I went to a blog written by her friend Alyssa. Now imagine my surprise when I see a comment from the original Suzie Petunia on Alyssa's blog. Double whoa. I mean, how do these two know each other? Don't you think it's weird that they both "know" me through two totally different routes? You'd think we were all Mormons or something.
And now a question on blog etiquette. Monday's post inspired a couple of people to leave comments. The comment from Gretchen had a question for me in it. So blog readers, what is the best method of response? Should I email her? Call her? IM her (my chosen route)? Comment on a post of her own? Comment on my own post? I was afraid to post the response on my blog, fearing she wouldn't return to see the response. But it would seem out of place to respond on her blog. C thinks I should have responded on mine. So blog readers, do you come back to posts where you've left questions to find responses? Can I answer your questions by commenting on my blog and expect you to come back to look for the answers?
