Blogger now has a "Follower" function built into it's dashboard that allows you to follow other blogs and to see who follows yours. It seems like it will be an interesting twist on who reads your stuff.
Tonight, I set mine up and I found that I have one follower. A guy that I've never met or heard of that has a blog called "peccadilloes". This was a word curious to me so I looked it up. The Free Dictionary Online says:
Noun: A petty misdeed.
Innocent enough. So, I go to check out this blog and what I find is a little unnerving. Click on the picture for the link to the blog.
I've asked a few people about it tonight on Google Talk and there are a few different ways this can be taken. Personally, the first thing I thought is that it sounds like a Blogger's Online Suicide Note. Some think it's fantasy while some think it's envisioning. I'm worried that I agree with the latter.
There is one single post written on Saturday, Sep 6, 2008. There are 0 comments. I left my own comment to dislodge any worries once it's published.
There's still a sinking feeling that I won't get a comment confirmation email anytime soon though...
