I think one of the sincerest compliments someone that someone who writes a blog can get are comments. I got a comment from someone who had one of my posts fwded to her. I felt excited and flattered that someone besides my mom or best friend cared enough to do more than skim and then to click over to my site to comment. How cool!!
It's my goal to comment on a blog a day, clicking through from google reader and I hope you do, too. It's a nice little peek of blogging, to know somewhere someone just read what you wrote and then thought about you for a while. What validation!
