Charli and Me. If you are new to blogging, you may not feel this yet. If you've been at it a while or if you are a reader who isn't blogging yet but has come to recognize names that recur in comments on certain blogs, I think you'll understand this:
Bloggers love comments. Even though many if not most of us write for our own pleasure, there is a thrill in getting feedback. I haven't been good lately in leaving comments, often because of time constraints. The nosy part of me wants to read what everyone has to say while the part of me responsible for things offline is tapping her foot and pointing at the clock.
Speaking of comments, I've had a few comments that have been made by bloggers with restrictions on their profiles that don't allow me to discover their blog address. On days that I participate in a meme or blog party such as Smiling Sally's Blue Mondays, I can sometimes trace the writer to their blog on the host's link list. If you find that you are leaving comments and not receiving them in reply, please check your settings and see if others can reach your blogsite. I understand privacy issues, but it would seem to me that posters willing to leave a comment would like to be reached in return. If anyone knows "Z the Y", please let them know that I appreciated their comment on my March 1st post and would love to visit their site.
Before that impatient rat starts mentioning that it is time for lunch, I am wrapping this up and visiting some blogs this morning with the best of intentions on leaving comments.
