Ought to be a word

There ought to be a word

for that delightful, warm, pleasant feeling you experience when you realise that someone is steadily working their way through your blog or your tweets.

It is intimate and sensual, strange and gratifying, and oddly fulfilling.

It is the pleasure of being read

And, just for a short while, being the centre of some stranger’s attention.

    I agree. I am not read no where near as you, but when I am, and when they comment, it is the best feeling.

    And it is always a pleasure to scroll through your TL and your blog. I think I have read every blog you have ever posted from the notebook. I look forward to reading more. Smiles.
