Inspiration Hits!

I've been racking my brain all day trying to come up with something to write about. So I sat here, reading through all the blogs I frequent, clicking on links to discover even more blogs to read, trying to get some ideas. I went for a drive at work (who am I kidding? Driving IS my job!), listening to the radio, and bopping along to some great 80's tunes.

And then I stumbled across this on Colleen's blog. She had read this at Miss Zoot's blog. Who had in turn read this at Schmutzie's blog. And that's when inspiration hit me. Well, more like it whacked me on the side of the head, but who's worried about specifics here? :)

How many times have you read someone's blog, but only commented rarely? Or worse... never? I know that as a new blogger, I love it when someone leaves me a comment. It lets me know that someone other than my mother is reading this. It validates me in a way that I haven't been validated since my high school creative writing classes. **not that I need that validation, mind you... lol** It makes me feel connected to people outside of my kids and their school and their sports. And while I'm mentioning it, I love my mother and I know she loves me too, but she hasn't commented here, either! :)

So.... here's the thing. Tomorrow is the day. I fully expect to find tons of comments in my blog. I'll be generous... you don't have to comment on any specific entry. Feel free to browse through them and comment randomly. :)

If you do.... I promise not to subject you to a rant about how people look at me funny as I dance and drive!

I wonder who you will pass this on to. It's so great to see something jump from one blog to another!

I know! I love the ripple effect!

(Although really, I'm just trying to get my mom to post a comment! lol)

Very interesting. Some days you make me laugh. Some of those days I remember too.

I've been reading your blog! I enjoy your stories. I do try, but may not always succeed, to comment each time I read a blog. I've been having a blogging block myself lately.

Anon: It would be fun to know who you are! :) But I'm glad I bring a smile to your face!

Cece: I know you're here! I see you often! Thanks for coming around so much!
