Be honest


I occasionally check the list of recent visitors to my blog. It seems that the closer a person physically is to where I live (Los Angeles), the less likely she/he is to comment on my blog or send me an e-mail.

I KNOW there are plenty of people in L.A. on this site.

But the people who comment most frequently/faithfully on my blog are, with one exception, simply too far away for an ongoing relationship to ever be feasible. (I adore you far-flung blog buddies but I wish you lived closer!)

So... a couple of tough questions. Please be honest.

1. Why don't more "local" people ever comment on my blog? If you enjoy what you read you should comment if for no other reason than because unless you comment I won't know whether you have a blog or not and so I won't know to visit your blog.

2. If you are one of my far-off buddies and you were coming to L.A. on business or whatever, would you tell me so we could maybe meet in person?

3. If you knew I was going to be travelling to your town would you want to meet me in person?

I don't have any trips in the offing at the moment but I love to travel and occasionally have interesting opportunities/excuses to do it. For example, I just found out that one of my stage plays is being produced in Australia in Novemberish. Hmm...

You know, I hardly ever think to check the geographic location of the blogger I read, unless they bring it up in their blog. I'm always surprised to find out who I'm close to.

And I'm always up for coffee, at least, if not dinner if another blogger is coming my way.

Not sure if it's helpful or not.

Most of my commenters are midwest or further. So many New Yorkers and only a handful comment. It's no big deal to me.

I think this is the second time I visit you here but if I were going your way or you mine, sure we can get together and hang out. I don't see why not.

I have a few people from my area that comment on my blog. I have a group and we all meet up as friends for a drink. Yeah, friends...no sex involved unless two people actually like each other.

I have gone all the way to Germany to meet my friend and him here. He has moved to Hawaii and I intend going there in April of next year. My other friend from the group is travelling over to here from Maryland in September.

Don't count someone out because of geography, like you said you are willing to travel.

Bye everyone, it was a blast

1- There aren't a lot of local people to me in the blogs, although I do get the occassional comment from a local (always male though). I think people a lot of times try to read blogs of others outside their bubble...or maybe, they want to meet you, but don't want you judging them on the basis of their comments.

2- Absolutely!!

3- Absolutely!! Just give me some warning first!

Congrats on your latest accomplishment!

Maybe it's what you're already thinking... you're not a "safe" distance away, so you'd possibly end up meeting them for real. You're too close for comfort, too close for honesty.
I actually wish there was a way to find bloggers by location, find some local ones. I haven't found a way to do that, though. It would be a great way to get to know someone... and I bet I'd better be able to trust a lover if he blogged (as he'd have his diary out there for me to check up on).

2. If you are one of my far-off buddies and you were coming to L.A. on business or whatever, would you tell me so we could maybe meet in person?
Of course!!!

3. If you knew I was going to be travelling to your town would you want to meet me in person?
Of COURSE!!!
