lurkers, i'm stalking you!
i have a few lurkers.
the ones that confuse me the most are the ones who know me personally.
there are a few at work that fall into this category and haven't told me they read it, which is just weird. no, "hey jasmine, found your blog," or "i heard you had one and wanted to read it, where can i find it?" it's strange that they don't talk to me all that much at the office yet, for some reason, desire to read about my inner workings here in blog city. in fact, someone even told boss lady about it. (she used to be a temp before turning boss and is quite close to several of the veterans working with us, most of all, work boyfriend who used her computer to buy the damn tickets for mexican girlfriend in the first place. real cool, right?) work boyfriend has known about the thing for ages though my statcounter tells me he almost never stops by. whatever he's told boss lady re: his feelings about posts that feature him, he's told me to write about whatever i want, which is what i'll continue to do.
there are a few people who i'm flat out not friends with who read, undoubtedly just to make fun of and criticize me. bless them. i just thought they'd have much better things to be doing. i'm surprised that i'm on their minds long enough for them to feel like they want to stop by, even if it is just to hate and mock me. really now...
lately the blog has been making the law office circuit. i've gotten hits from 20 or so of the top 5o firms in the city. i'm assuming it's just some random guys forwarding the HNT posts to each other but it's weird to see so many recognizable servers...the one of my employer even (explained by boss lady visits, Id.). since i don't write about work so it doesn't matter much. i wish my job weren't so un-exciting, but that's how the dice rolls.
and then there are those that i don't know. those who come from funny servers. those from faraway places (i.e. pakistan, iceland, new zealand). even some a little closer to home. for those strangers who lurk around here, feel free to drop a hello in the comments every once in a while. i don't bite!
unless you like that kind of thing...in which case, i'm all teeth.
