What's Happening?

Wednesday, April 18, 2007 | | 8 comments »

Lara, at Life: An Ongoing Education wrote an interesting piece about whether or not it's okay to ask for compliments and other similar ideas in a blog. I say, it's your blog, so go for it. Read the post, it's pretty good.

On that note, I am starting to wonder if my writing has gone to the toilet or if my earlier readers have actually realized that I don't have much to say. Why do I think this? It seems as though some of my favorite bloggers, who earlier provided me with comments, are no longer commenting. I'm sure they have reasons, many of which probably make sense.

However, as a relative rookie as far as blogging goes, getting comments or feedback is extremely rewarding. In addition, starting up a conversation and sharing thoughts is one of the reasons many people start blogs.

So, if you do visit, please drop me a note so I know you still exist. I'll keep on reading the great stuff I've discovered over the past several months, written by some pretty spectacular people. (Is that sucking up enough??)

    i'm here and reading! and not just because you linked to me either. ;)

    i've definitely noticed ebbs and flows in my readers and commenters - people who used to be near daily are now rare, and new people show up. i've come to a more comfortable place with comments than i used to be in, but i still get desperate for lovin' sometimes. :-P

    We all get a little desperate for lovin'! Perhaps we can help each other out!! Thanks for the advice.

    I keep reading--keep writing! Maybe people are just too busy to write a comment.

    I'd be a better blogger if it weren't for my job keeping me so dang busy lately!

    I"m still here and reading!! I don't log on as often as I'd like to on my teacher blog but when I do I always make sure to make my rounds!! Keep writing because I'll always end up catching up with what's going on in your neck of the woods.
