So I have a question for you Internet Nerd Herd (or INH, as I feel we are close enough that I can call you by your nickname). Is commenting on the blogs of people you don't know a strange thing to do? I love when people comment on my blog! But when I post a comment on a stranger's blog, I feel kind of stalker-y. I don't know why. It's not like the person doesn't have a blog where they publish stories for the whole world to read! But I worry that the blogger will wonder, Who the heck is this person, and why the heck is she commenting on my blog?! Which, if that is what the blogger is thinking, I don't know why that matters. But tell me, INH, is there proper etiquette for commenting? And what is the rule for linking to other sites?
*To H, this really isn't an insult. He has nicknames for everyone and for my little sub-groups of friends. There are several reasons why I think I have to embrace the nerd label:

|For The Record:|
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.
The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.
