... that when I read someone's blog, I will coment. Even if it is just to say 'hi passed by', 'loved it', 'loathed it' or whatever. Because otherwise how do they (and I include myself in this as well) know if anyone at all is reading their hard crafted blogs?
I mention this, because a friend said to me a few days ago, "Oh, I always read your blog. I enjoy it." Then specifically mentioned one she'd really enjoyed and what she had thought about it. But had she left a comment? No, never.
So there am I thinking, well no one really has any thoughts on my blogs. Hell, maybe no one reads them. They read one, once, (the mysterious 'they') and thought, "what a load of cr**" so haven't visited the site again.
We writers are sometimes delicate little flowers! (yes really). We need a little nurturing ocassionally. A few handfuls of manure is always a good thing, to encourage and stimulate us. A few handfuls of praise is even better.
So please remember, help us to help ourselves, throw us a passing comment and watch us flourish.
