Who was the first person to comment on your blog?

Exactly one year ago today, I made my first blog post here on Live Journal .
 
Looking back, I remember how nervous I felt about posting my thoughts online. What if nobody read them? What if people thought I was stupid or told me I didn’t know what I was talking about?  
 
Only one person commented on that first post (my friend from the GSHW,
dqg_neal ). The fact that someone not only read the entry, but took the time to leave a remark, gave me the confidence to keep at it.
 
That’s not to say I haven’t made mistakes. I know for certain that I’ve (albeit unintentionally) upset some people as I learned how different folks use their journals, and how they have their own ideas of what kind of feedback they want from their readers.
 
Still, on the one-year anniversary of that debut entry, I feel much more confident, and very comfortable within the LJ community. 
 
Would I have kept at it if no-one had commented on that first post? I hope so, but in any case, I’m most grateful to Neal for taking the time to respond. I’m sure he forgot about it soon after, but it made a big difference to me.  
 
How about you?
