Note: I have been dealing with some major computer issues! So the posting is a bit slower and I’m not commenting on your blogs as much, sorry about that. Things should be back to normal soon.
It’s always interesting to me how much commenting goes down on this blog when I am unable to comment on others. I have mentioned it before but it is so true how much blogging is a community. No one should expect to gets lots of comments if they aren’t out there making an effort. I do really enjoy reading and commenting on all your blogs, that is truly the best part of blogging so that is fine for me. I will admit something to you now, there are many sites I look at but if they’ve never sent me some sort of acknowledgment I start to limit the amount of comments I leave on theirs, if any. And by acknowledgment I don’t mean replying to me in the comments of their post, I never go back and read those (who does?). Now I am not saying “if I read your blog you should read mine” and vice-versa. It’s not that hard to send a thank you email to a new reader, every once and a while reply to their comment or reciprocate the occasion comment (only if we mean it of course, never be fake). Even the busiest heavy weight bloggers take the time to do this, so if I’ve stopped by a blog a half dozen times and never heard a peep back what that says to me is they don’t care if I comment or not (which is totally their prerogative seriously). I am just so busy and with 500+ blogs in my google reader it seems fruitless to spend so much extra time commenting into a black hole. Please don’t take this as anything negative, I am just pleased as punch with this site and everything that is happening and all you readers are fabulous, whether you comment or not! These are just some thoughts that have been rattling around in my head.
Even with comments being a bit slower on Style Symmetry, readership is growing higher that ever!! When I first started this site I have a pie-in-the-sky goal of how many people I wanted reading it daily, and now I am 50% above that. It is so crazy to think of all the people stopping by to see what I am wearing. Thank you all so so much for being a part of the journey with me and I look forward to everything the future has in store.
