Blog Stalking.

I frequently have mixed emotions about blogging, about reading other’s blogs, about commenting in general… I know it’s ridiculous. I have a freaking blog. Look, here, I’m writing a blog RIGHT NOW, THIS VERY SECOND. WRITING, WRITING, WRITING. I’m down with the writing and I’m even more down with people leaving comments. I like to say “Hi!”… so please comment if you feel so inclined. If not, I’ll try not to cry too hard into my pillow later tonight.

Anyhoo, when I read blogs I feel like I’m intruding on someone’s thought process or (cough) their feelings. Depending on the type of blog my emotions change, but overall I either feel like I’m inviting myself into someone’s personal space or being a creepy online stalker. Anyone second that motion? Sometimes I want to leave a comment, but can quickly talk myself out of that nonsense. Ok, I’m not stupid. I know you have to give to get yada yada yada… but I hate feeling needy. Same reason I’m terrible about replying on Twitter. Absolutely terrible. Never be offended if I don’t reply to you or answer your questions. Again with the stalker vibe. The times I try to respond to strangers I feel like someone is going to say “What the hell are you doing?!?!?” so I don’t.

I can be a freak. I know.

I'm a marketer, cook, avid bug hater, cupcake lover, hiker, klutz, and married lady living in the great state of Colorado... My name is Megan Stecker and I'm a Colorado native. That's right, born and raised. I currently live in Denver and work in Marketing. I love what I do and watching it impact my client's business. I love to cook and bake. A good glass of wine can cure what's ailing you as long as you drink it in good company. I love the outdoors. Hiking, camping, exploring... I'm in. I have two dogs, Ollie and Duke, and I treat them like a children. My husband, friends and family mean everything to me. I also, inadvertently, find myself in the midst of disaster on a regular basis.

  1. As someone who’s clearly not comment-shy, and in fact am kind of a comment-whore, I’d say DO IT!

    If people are sharing personal stuff, and you comment and they freak out – you’ve done them a service because they apparently were unaware that the internet is … the internet.

    But odds are, people would be glad to know someone is reading and enjoying what they are writing.

    Hopefully my frequent comments fall more into the latter category …

    1. Comment whore. Hmmm add that one to the list. Megan the amazon and comment whore. I’m going to have to come up with something equally as pleasant for you. And, for the record, I thoroughly enjoy your frequent comments.

      I don’t mind commenting if I find something witty, hilarious, unique… but when people get all mushy, gushy and talk about feeling all dark and sad, I don’t know what to say. Awkward feelings.

      1. Oh, and yes, agreed, sincerely emotional stuff is hard to respond to. I don’t even know how to respond to it in real life.
