You know, I have my "hit counter" set up to detect visitors not item hits, and my statistics show that I get a pretty decent amount of visitors per day, or, at least according to my standards. Heck the fact that people drop in and read me consistently surprises me every day. But you know, I really get few comments compared to visitors. That's interesting to me. I don't know how I can improve the blog if I don't get feedback. Of course, I have to admit to being guilty of visiting my favorite blogs all the time and not leaving comments myself.
I know, for me, I visit a lot of long established blogs with lots of followers, and, frankly, am never really sure my comment would make a difference. I mean, if it's one of 100 or more comments, does it? Maybe, maybe not. OOooorrrrr... am I intimidated by all the comments and the popularity of the blog, and that's why I don't leave comments? That's an interesting question for me to ponder...
So, anyway, here's my challenge for this Thursday... as I go randomly blog hopping today, I am going to leave comments on all of the ones I visit, whether there are already a hundred of them, or if there are none... whether it is a well established blog or brand new and just starting out.
Sort of like mingling at a party.... just without as much face to face interaction.
So, that is my challenge to myself, to put on my party shoes and mingle. Y'all put on your party hats and join me... today while you are out blog hoping, say hi to the folks you visit and let me know if you find anything fun and interesting out there, I may want to go say hi myself!
