I usually lurk on a bunch of other blogs and comment semi-liberally (ha, ha) on those other blogs both to encourage the authors and to giver whatever I feel I can contribute, because I know I appreciate contributions on my blog. But for the first time in a long time I’ve been way too busy to keep up with my favorite blogs every day.
That’s partly because I am busy. Also partly because my list of “favorite” blogs (most of them slightly more personal, or with a personal connection) has expanded over time. Thirdly - some of my favorite blogs are in the swing of NaBloPoMo, so there are a lot more posts.
I think all this is great. But the downside is less commenting, which makes me a little sad. And some blogs on which I frequently lurk probably don’t know I’m still a reader because I never comment. I like small blogs better than mega-blogs. I like personal blogs better than targeted, one-subject blogs. And I like to have personal connections to the blogs I read. And those types of blogs thrive on personal comments.
In any case, this is me excusing myself for being spread thin. If you think I’m reading your blog, I probably am. If you think I stopped reading your blog, I probably did not stop. Just so you know.Posted by James at November 21, 2007 10:11 PM
