More and more frequently, I find myself having conversations with people who seem to know more about me than I know about myself. My eyes squint and my eyebrows scrunch together as I try to figure out how they've become privvy to this personal information, and then my unibrow and I remember....
"Oh, I blogged about that 2 months ago." And then I feel very silly. And then I have a variation on the following conversation:
Me: "Oh, you must have read my blog!?"
Other person: "Ya, I really enjoy reading it. I liked the one about (fill in blank)."
Me: "Oh, good. Thank you! You don't have to lurk, you know! You can comment anytime..."
OP: "I just wouldn't know how to do that."
So I have a special little class just for you...

Step 2b: If you don't want to make an account, just click the dot on anonymous instead
Step 3: Next, just type your comment in the box, type the word verification in the other box, and click on "Publish Your Comment"
Step 4: Congratulate yourself!! You have commented, my friend (or acquaintance or relative, or any combination thereof)!! :)
