I know I scare you stiff. It's ok, it's a common reaction. Many have survived and you will too. Here are a few words of advice:

I have recently decided that the reason nobody comments on my blog anymore is because I apparently inundate everyone with my rampant and exorbitant amount of blogs. So, here is just a note from the author: I am here to tell you not to be overwhelmed by the multiplicity of my posts. I know it can get alarming. Hark! Don't be discouraged! Just keep on keeping on. Perseverance is the key!

Good luck and let the comments begin!

(Oh dear, what if this post gets no comments! :O )

Christy, you have given me the encouragement I needed to finally leave my first comment. It feels so liberating! Now, could you please do something to inspire me to write in my own blog? I'll go back to sulking now....

does this mean that i should be perseverent in my request for your assistance on designing a low-orbit telescope? with you and your lucky left foot we are sure to win Nasa's bid for designs to replace the Hubble.

I'm sorry Christy, I am one of the worst non-commenters, because I use google reader to get an RSS feed of everyone's blog, so I'm not actually at blogspot, and I generally comment a lot less because of it... Here's to a reformation! :D

Does this count, Christy?

For one thing, I fail to comment because I'm a lazy bum. I've never considered the possibility that you scare me stiff. Perhaps you do, but whether my fear is causally related to my non-comment-ment remains open to question, at least in my mind.

Hi, I'm leaving you a comment, but I don't know what to say. I did notice that you called me Timmy G. today though I though to myself, "I thought she was going to call me Morgan?"

when someone is begging for comments on a blog I refuse to give in so I must send an email instead. I do view all the pictures you put on your blog, read at least 95% of what you write... and watch, perhaps half of the video clips you post (it is rather rare that I have both sound and a fast enough internet connection). However I try to avoid leaving too many redundant comments whether they be repeating my own previous comments (you can only say "nice pictures" so many times before it gets old) or the comments of someone else. On the rare occasion that I have something I deem to be even slightly humorous or profound or have some question I will comment but otherwise just satisfy yourself to know that your work is appreciated...at least most of the time :)

Just so you all know, I posted Alex's comment because he was trying to be tricksy and EMAIL it to me! The audacity! I'm getting him back by posting it!

Teddy: I think you should post about your latest project. Or even post about past projects like put up pictures of your log cabin or something!

Jen: As long as I get to pick the color of the paint! :D :D

Kelsey: I appreciate the effort! We'll just have to work on the content of your comment next time! lol

Jonathan: I use RSS feed to. But I have it come up on my Google homepage and then I click directly on the link so it takes me to each persons blog. That helps inspire me to leave comments! :D

Bekah: Yes! That counts!

Barry: By invalidating my scare tactic argument in your specific case, you have reduced my post to meaningless twaddle and therefore, I am honored that you commented at all! :D

Morgan: Forgive me for forgetting. I'll work on that.

Alex: I tend to agree with you, actually. I've posted way too many "fluffy" posts lately. I'm working on getting back to the good stuff! To quote an author I just wrote a paper on, "When photographs or texts are used merely to establish identity and presence -- to give us merely representative images of THE Woman or THE indian -- they enter what John Berger calls a control system. With their innately ambiguous, hence negative and anti-narrativist waywardness NOT denied, however, they permit unregimented subjectivity to have a social function: 'fragile images [family photographs, etc] often carried next to the heart or placed by the side of the bed, are used to refer to that which historical time has no right to destroy.' "
