That's Why!

As I was going along today, thinking about a blog post I have been working on, I suddenly had a revelation about something. This is it:

The reason why I like getting "comments" so much is because... I am a "words of affirmation" girl! You know the book, "The Five Love Languages"? Well, I give love and feel love through words of affirmation! I always wondered why it was so important to me. Originally, when I started this blog it was simply for the purpose of keeping a bit of a record of my day to day life. I wasn't even sure whether I would give out my blog address to anyone. So why is it so important to me that people actually read what I write and then let me know if they like it? Well, that's why.... words of affirmation... I feel loved when I get good comments. Does that sound really lame? Probably. But that's just the way it is.

Now no pressure... I don't want you all to stop reading just because you're scared that every time you do I'll be expecting a comment. I understand that some don't think it's too important
because you have a different love language. Either that or you just don't love me! :( Just kidding! ;) I know you love me. So please don't ever leave a negative comment or I just might shut down the whole thing and call it quits!

So, there you have it. That's me!

And about that blog post I've been working on? Hopefully, I'll get it up tomorrow...


  1. Now, that post just satisfys me deeply. That is the deepest you have gone yet on this blog and I congratulate you for it.Doesn't it feel good?
    I have 'words' as my love language too, but it is the second in line. My strongest language is quality time. Looking forward to the next post.
    P.S. You have a way with writing too, keep it up.

  2. well, words of affirmation is my first love language as well, soooo I know EXACTLLY how you feel!!!!!!! and by the way... i love your blog, and I LOVE you.

  3. i'm totally with you on that...i also feel loved by words of affirmation; they are so important to me!

    so if you ever drop by my blog, make sure to say 'hi' (and more if you want to) - as i know you will, because you seem like just that kind of girl ;)

  4. For some reason I wasn't able to leave you a comment for todays, I Heart Faces, but i love your pic, what great brotherly love. I'm a father to 3 boys, so i love pictures like this, great job.

  5. Katrina, You visited my blog today! Thank you so much for your kind words to me. I don't know if I am a 'affirmation' person but you sure gave me the happy heart :-)
