I have no clue whether this is happening on Monday the 21 or Tuesday the 22. Just take the time to comment where you read.
Believe it or not (no, I’m not walking on air…), I’ve been around awhile. I can remember asking a d-blogger’s permission to add their blog to my blog list. I used to read the d-blogs from my favorites’ list – no reader list. (And no, I never walked to school up hill, barefoot, in the snow. So, there!)
I can remember my first commenter and I’m not going to repeat it as I don’t like being one of those people who throw in lots of d-blog links to popular d-blogs. I do love throwing in a link or two when I find a sort of new blogger who’s not getting many, if any comments.
And so – Hannah (in 2013) (Yup – you need to read her comment over there) & I guess, Chris,(redo for 2014) have taken up the cause of “We need to start leaving more comments!” And you know what? They’re right. (And yes, I just threw in two links to two well known d-bloggers. Oh well. Deal with it.
I really do love this idea. I’m a former Army Brat. I was always the “new kid.” And you know what, it’s not easy. I went to 3 high schools. Try that someday. It did make me sort of “in your face” with “Hi, my name’s Colleen!” in introducing myself at each school.
So – on Monday, (or maybe it’s Tuesday???) take the time to leave a comment on some d-blogs.
Take the time to say hello to someone new. It’s important.
And my own personal request – figure out how to moderate your comments so we don’t have to do the stupid captchas or whatever those are cuz the older I get, the harder it is to read them and retype them. And I believe that just might be stopping so many people from leaving a comment on blogs.
I can do this! (and no, I’m not linking that, either!)
