Hmmm Just wondering what it takes to get comments made on my blog. I see other blogs and people right and left are dropping comments like no tomorrow. Am I boring (probably), am I whiny (most definately), but still I do think what I say could be worth a "attagirl" or something...sheesh.

Now wait a minute, don't get me wrong, there have been a few comments made here and there but they are few and far between, so I promise if you drop a comment on me I will do likewise...just leave your blog addy and I will go there and read it...Deal?

the problem is, I get lazy. I read my blogs through "Google Reader" and I rarely leave that site to go comment now. Sheer laziness.

I promise to try to do better. Have a great weekend.

Hey, I didn't realize you were blogging again! Or I would have been leaving comments... :-D

I have figured out in the last six months since I've been monitoring the activity on my blogs that you have to do it at LEAST once a week, if not more, just to keep people coming back. I will keep checking blogs for a week or two, then stop if nothing new is posted until I check randomly.

Sometimes blogging to no apparent audience seems like a futile or frustrating exercise, but it works little by little, and if you are ever published, you will have a built in network of promoters. Make sense?

Also have figured out that linking to others blogs frequently in your postings brings them to your blog and often garners mentions of yours. Everyone loves reading about themselves. ;-)

I've almost doubled the traffic on my blogs every month since I started doing these things, I think.

So, now that I see you're blogging again, I'll be back ... unless you slack off again. :-P

Well, the problem for ME was that I thought I had you in my bloglines roll and I didn't. So I didn't even know you were posting away until I checked today. All has been remedied :-)
