No Comment; Blog World

A few people have pointed out the inability to post comments here. Of course, you can still post a name recommendation for Baby#3 here, and there is a link to my email in the upper left corner. I love input, and I'd love to see discussion.



But the 'no comment' option is a sanity saving measure for me. I might start checking obsessively to see if there were any comments, or worse, not have any and feel like a preteen waiting anxiously for the phone to ring.



I read somewhere that a blog without comments is not a blog. Okay. Then this isn't a blog. Whatever.



Typepad does give you a count of how many people visited your site each day. I'm averaging about 30, which is nothing in the 'blog world' but is amazing to me. Especially when so many of my friends are Internet-impaired;-)

Not sure how Typepad counts, but I imagine the number is less. Maybe they count every page viewed, so if you click to an old post, you're counted twice. Much cooler is the map provided by Google of where your readers are. It doesn't tell me much---one marker in Chicago might represent 1 person or 10. But it still feels good.



I've gotten a few emails from people I don't know, who either found their way here via a Google search and stayed to look around, or because I linked to their site from here, etc. I thought that might freak me out, because I am posting with family and friends in mind. But it hasn't. I know there is weird stuff out there on the net, just as there is any/everywhere. But I have found it to be a treasure-trove of ideas and inspiration, a great resource, and a confirmation that there are many like-minded people out there, especially moms---none of whom have all the answers but who are trying to do the best they can. I love those glimpses into "how do you do it?"---whether it be balancing roles or trying to be creative or just keeping up with laundry. Next week I'll post some of my favorite links.



Meanwhile, thanks for checking in. And MA, I promise to mention you more often next week;-)
