Many people have blogs in their siggies from JM alone. Do you read them? Do you let them know you read them? Do you read blogs in general?

I don't read blogs, I don't click on people's blog's and I don't blog. Not to be rude or anything, but I really don't care to read what is going on in other people's lives, I have enough in my own to worry about. Sorry if that's harsh but it's honest.

Huge thanks to *Kiliki* for the FANTABULOUS new siggy!!

I read them sometimes especially if it's one that I've heard was particularly interesting. There is a woman in my PR who blogs and she blogs for JM as well. Hers are always hilariously funny and very well written. I've left comments so she knows I read it.

I follow several blogs of friends (not necessarily JM members). I have a blog that is private. If I do click on someone's blog from a board I would let them know where I was from and that I did read it.

I only click on the ones in siggies if something happened to the person and I want to see how they are doing but don't want to bug them by asking.

Sometimes I'll read a particular blog entry if linked from an article or discussion but I typically don't follow them faithfully.

Rarelt & not regularly even on the few I occasionally check out. I have known a few women from JM that have blogs & may read through the anniversary of a lost baby or something & comment to let them know I am reading & thinking of them. I wish now I had started a blog before my first pg & as I went through losses & tests, etc. Those kinds of blogs can be very helpful for both info & feeling less alone. I read some like that when I was seeking answers medically & emotionally. Otherwise, I am not much of a blog reader. I have a hard enough time keeping up with JM & my email. LOL

I have a blog. It's not private, but I only give it out to friends and family. Also, I have a tracker on there so I know who is looking at it and how they accessed it. If I felt uneasy about anything I saw on the tracker, I wouldn't hesitate to go private. I would never post my blog address on a public site like JM.

I have one, I don't update often.

I do read a few religiously. like pioneerwoman and Lunarmagic's... other than that I've got some bookmarked that I browse, but not constantly.

I have two. One personal blog that I haven't updated in a while and one the kids and I have had fun with (writing a story about one of their action figures) but we haven't updated that one in a while either.

I do not frequent many blogs but sometimes look at a few when I search craft sites for ideas.
