A Culpable Silent Reader...

Feeling very very bad now... after reading some of my favourite bloggers' entry! =(
Feeling that I am the cause of their response... I guess that they are really disturbed to know that I had been reading their blog silently... without any common courtesy probably... because I never give any comment neither do I tell them that I'm reading...

I always thought it's alright... because to me, I am just reading articles written by my friends, and through their writings, understanding their views and thoughts. I always thought that when we had something online, we are expecting diff kind of people to read so there is no need to acknowledge. I always thought that I don't need to give comments because i really have no comment... =S

Though I always thought.... never do I thought that I am wrong, until I told them, one fine day, that I had been reading their blogs. They are so shocked... seemingly disturbed that I am reading their diaries, something that is not mean for me to read. Suddenly, I felt that I had committed a crime unknowingly... invading their privacy unknowingly... hurting them unknowingly... and gotta myself this pang unknowingly....

Sorry... I'm deeply sorry and I will try... really try to give comment to the things that I'd read. This is really not me... giving comments... exposing myself and thoughts to the public, the people that I'm not close to... I feel so vulnerable now... guess I should have considered more or at least prepare myself more... before launching into this blogging business....

Once again... sorry to gunblad3, icegal, tree, chin cher, yifen, char(nie)... that I had read your blog and link it to mine without any consent... Rest assure, i will remove the links till you gave me the "authorisation".

Alas... what a lengthy entry for a small matter... ={... but guess it will be good that thing can be cleared up.

Oh man, this Blogger comment thing is driving me crazy. Hee! Here's what I wrote prior to deleting that post accidentally:

hey, its me! my entry was written NOT directed at anyone, especially not you! it was really just an accumulation of stuff that had happened recently that i felt the need to write about how i feel. and i really dont mind u reading, and i do not demand comments cos i do not write to get comments. :) and no, im disturbed by silent readers.

welcome to the blogging world! i'll be checking this site often!
========================================

and that's why i wrote another comment to correct myself saying that I'm NOT disturbed by silent readers. just a typo over the original post. :)

You shouldn't always blame yourself for everything, gal. Sometimes things are not even your fault. Just some misunderstand.

Hey!

dun feel that its your fault.. its not! when we blog we know that its up online so anyone in the world can read. and dun worry about being a silent reader, if its not you to comment, then dun... just be yourself!

Hey hey... dun take it too hard on yourself, whatever was written certainly wasn't directed at you or anyone in particular, really, and yeah, a lot of mis-comm about original intentions I think

Cheer up! =)

Hui Qing, for me, my personal stand is that once I put it online for the whole world to see, I don't mind who reads it and I don't care if I offend anyone; I just write what's on my mind.

So no need to apologise to me. My blog is for all to read; whether silent or not.

Perhaps my mistake is that I assumed everyone thinks the same as me with regards to blogging.

Welcome to the blogging world :)

hey gal! don't worry! i've no qualms about people linking my blog to theirs or being silent readers. in the first place, it is already open to the public, so everyone is free to read it. :)
