Blogs give you a great opportunity to get instant feedback on what you write. I love that feature so much. Getting comments on an entry is what really makes this whole experience worthwhile. Thank you to everyone who has made a comment here at some time.
I know that not every post will speak to you. I know that you might come here, read my thoughts and move on. I read other people’s blogs everyday. I have a daily ritual to follow the links on my side bar. I don’t always comment, but I try to make a regular point of it.
So if you are reading these words and they speak to you, even if they don’t, drop a comment. Say Hi. Introduce yourself. Or, if you are shy about that, click on my profile and send me an email. I have had some great discussions grow out of this forum and continue in email.
I sometimes think of this venture like a newspaper. Lots of people read the articles but very few ever write a letter to the editor. I can understand why. It takes a lot of time and effort to compose a good editorial. However, it doesn’t take too long to type up a quick comment on a blog. And those comments often mean a lot to the author. So, go over to your favourite blog and tell them how much you look forward to reading their words everyday. It will brighten up their day. I guarantee it.
