Hello Anonymous Commenter and Lurkers, This Post is for You

Dear Anonymous,

 I wonder if you are one return visitor or if several students studying English have visited.
Even though you don't have a profile, you could sign your first name to your comments and maybe even tell what country you reside in, or where you are visiting from.  It would be interesting to know what your main course of study is.   It would make your comments more meanful and personal for me.
I would be curious to learn how reading a  blog helped you accomplish an assignment  for college?  Are you searching for particular subject matter?  Is leaving a comment part of the assignment?  Notice the spelling of the word  a s s i g n m e n t.  One reason I wonder if "anonymous" is one  return reader is because this word is always misspelled in the comments the same way and I get comments with almost identical wording.  I should have saved all the comments I haven't published, I could have done a whole post with them.

I mean to post more of my writing here on WRITE PURPOSE but then I have second thoughts.  When my children were small I did not let them play out in the street  where they might be run over or stolen.  That's a little bit how blog land feels.  In some ways, anonymous readers  are part of that feeling. So maybe if the lurkers and anonymous commenters say hello it will help me risk more in this public place.   What do you think?

No comment? Yep, that's right, I got no comments from anyone, anonymous or otherwise on this post. The anon comments continued to come in batches and I decided that, even without an obvious virus source, I'd just block unidentified comments altogether. Lurking is, of course, allowed...but I'd love to hear from any of my readers. So say hello, why don't you?

Hello. So, here is a comment from someone who is not anonymous. I forgot you had another blog until you commented on Graeme's Imperfect Tense. It does feel strange sometimes to post personal stories on the internet. I know I get quite a bit of traffic from non-bloggers.
