'Follow Me' or you will...
When we begin blogging do we realize what a commitment it can become? We notice others who come over and make comments, so often we begin to follow them. After a while, at times around a year or so we drop off from site. Not because we do not like them, but because we realized there are so many in our readers, ques, or even in our email.
Jessie Carty speaks often about how she tries to keep up with her in box que, but can only follow the people who come make comments on her site, but that does not seem fair (not reality I know). When I follow someone I have done it because I really enjoy ALL of them. So I try and get to them all at some point and time. Even the ones who are following me. If I show up out of now where I hope they realize I am lurking, and try to find time to say hello now and again...
While spending some down time today going to my followers sites, I decided to go back to one in particular, The Impression That I Get. She has only begun blogging for the past year, so I decided to go to the very beginning and go all the way through her post. Why? I am not sure, I guess curiosity. I genuinely care about people. Through the years, good or bad experiences, I like to know about people. What makes them tick, and if I can learn from their experiences or journey in life.
Why did I pick her...she mentions 'loss' in a post. To be nosy I guess. Since I have experienced loss, maybe I will learn something.
Try it, and tell me what you learned, or felt, or see, or whatever floats your boat...I also may begin doing this once a month, highlighting a blog for you to visit...more human interest and creative than food.
JL Snyder is an Alabama girl (southern like me), cares about people (notices homeless woman and writes observations), sports, writes about trying new things like movies she would not normally watch, TV shows, and so much more. She also remembers peoples birthdays and what they like. See she cares...but I have so much more to read...
