I was about to delete the post, actually, then I realised I wasn't so sure I wanted to care about comments that much, then I realised that the post was about caring about comments, so then I was about to delete it again, because many of my favourite blogs ever don't have any comments, or they get zero comments every week, and they just go right on ahead being brilliant. But then I wondered if I'd annoyed people who usually comment, who didn't comment on the last post, the one the comments post was about, because I didn't say that I like their blogs (when I do, I actually am that sad that I read all of the blogs in the side bar) or that I enjoyed their comments (of course I do, who doesn't need a little ego gratification they didn't ask for every now and then). And then I realised I was paranoid, and that it was this post that was making me paranoid, so I was about to delete it again, then I was going to leave it as a salutary lesson to myself, and then I was going to leave it so that I could prove I wasn't paranoid. And then you commented on it. Hurrah! Thank you.
