For the past ten months, I have been nurturing Mason Planet to become an authentic website, and not just somewhere I could share information with friends. As such, I can happily boast that my baby reached a big milestone today: someone finally commented on one of my blog posts. (Yes, you read that correctly: I am celebrating a single comment!)
At any other website, a single entry could get numerous posts in an hour, but I received one comment in ten months. (I will probably write stand up comedy about this one day, or cry about it to my therapist.) Someone was bound to comment eventually, and not surprisingly it was for a TIM post, but I am grateful I did not write the first comment. (I am also thankful that first person was not my mother, who by the way celebrated her... 29th birthday today.)
While most readers simply view my blog from afar, Susan, the gorgeous saint of the Internet, felt the need to take that magical first step. Seriously, I am grateful to Susan, whomever she might be in real life, for illustrating that she enjoys my blog posts. I love writing this blog, and, while I think it's awesome that my posts are shared on social networking websites, I am excited to see readers commenting on my blog posts.
Again, I thank you for visiting my web site, and for reading my blog.
