Ain't too proud to beg...

Um...remember when you guys liked me and stuff? And you know...like, commented? Remember that? Think back before the turkey and the bad decisions regarding extra dessert helpings to the time before Thanksgiving when you used to wander by and drop a comment or two...

For the first time in months, I feel the need to remind you that there's a minimum comment rule before I move on, since you're probably all waiting with bated breath. And also, since I'm hoping the lack of comments yesterday is because I fell down a blogger black hole and you were just unaware of my post and not because you all thought it sucked, I direct your attention to the post below and I need to remind you that although TWO of the awesomest commenters in the world put their two cents in, it would be SUPER great if TEN of the awesomest commenters in the world put their two cents in so we can move on to my serious addiction to inappropriate stuff that I will spill here because I have no shame. I can rock a run-on sentence, btw.

So, go on. Scroll down and do your business. Consider it Christmas charity.

hello I love you. Now I will go read your post from yesterday.

I read yesterday's post. I haven't commented as much as usual on most blogs because after my Thanksgiving break, my reader about exploded from the number of posts it had waiting for me!

I think the internet is just still drowsy from the tryptophan, and also panicking to get ready for Christmas. Things will pick up in January. In the meantime, it's the true addicts, I mean loyal readers, who will still show up and comment.

(And I did read your last post, but didn't have anything to add to it since I'm cooking-disabled. I'm trying to do better about volunteering to do meals, but I always worry that the recipients will find my offerings indigestible.)

I don't know if I count as one of the awesomest commenters, but what the heck. I'll give it a shot!

And, yeah, after Thanksgiving break, it's hard to even read all the blogs I missed, much less comment.

I'll do better, I swear! :)

I'm pretty sure I'm one of the two great commenters, right? I always comment!

Herb of Grace said...

It's so not fair that I tried this on my own blog and it soooo didn't work. And here I am, a new reader, happily lurking away, forced to comment. Not fair.

Brillig said...

Hi! Hi! I'm here! I'm just getting back into the blogging groove after my month off for NaNoWriMo. But I'm back! And I'll comment, I promise!

CaJoh said...

So sorry about not commenting yesterday. Had I not been playing "catch-up" from being off from work for a week, I would have seen it. Will try to be more diligent in the future.

Mina said...

Hey, I commented, baby!

Btw, what's your comment minimum? 10? 15? That's a great rule.

Stephanie and Co. said...

That's so funny. I read yesterday's post in my google reader, came to comment on it and it claimed it wasn't here. But there it is now.

I have a loose comment minimum rule, but I am always disappointed and have other stuff to post, so I just have to pretend that I have high self esteem and don't care about comments.

Kimberly said...

Wasn't home yesterday otherwise I would have! Of the fifty blogs on my blogroll you're one of the ones I most look forward to reading each day.

Seriously.

No. For real.

charrette said...

Ah, I've been missing my wonderful Melanie and your funny comment rule and random wit and lovely thoughts. I'll be scrolling down momentarily...

The Crash Test Dummy said...

No, your post was awesome. Everyone is too busy I think. My hits have been way down too.

YOU ROCK!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I love being the 13th commenter. And I love it when peple ain't too proud to beg.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Here's one more comment just so you feel special. Since you begged and all.

Eowyn said...

See, my problem is that I just leave your blog alone for a few days and then I'm horribly behind. I'll catch up now. . .

Heather of the EO said...

How can you be this funny? Are you this funny in real life? C'mon...spill it. Are you?

Jami said...

Sorry, my friend. I'm in blogging outer darkness most of the time. But I still love you and read your posts when I can. Commenting sometimes makes the dial-up break down, but for you I shall risk it.

Also I like the new layout.

Alison Wonderland said...

I just want to go on the record as having read (and commented on) the last post before I read this one.

Annie Valentine said...

This happened to me over Thanksgiving and almost gave me a complex. Then it was Monday and the skies rained angelic comments into my box.

Sue said...

Comments are way down all over the blogosphere. That's what I'm telling myself anyway.
