When you write a blog and get your first comment, it's so exciting! I mean, you first comment that's not from friends and family!

But at the same time, when I first started reading blogs, I never commented. I was too intimidated, didn't know what to say... or whatever my reason. I never really thought it was "a big deal."

Schmutzie's Milk Money along with Sweetney and Jenandtonic have declared Wednesday, October 3rd as The Great Mofo Delurk 2007.
If you visit a blog tomorrow, leave a comment! And visit lots of blogs! I think this is a great idea... So, count me in and be prepared for me to comment!
