The Lowly Comment
As this weekend was a long one, I finally took some time to start to redo this blog. While doing so, I went to update and add a column for the blogs that I try to read every day. So what did I do? I went to my deleted email and clicked on the blogs that had left a comment. This started me thinking about comments and how they affect who you follow and which blogs we all read on a daily basis. Hence, the lowly comment.
I started this blog over seven months ago as a promotional tool for selling my antique jewelry. The gurus said this is what you should do and who was I to argue? I quickly found that I enjoyed doing a blog and not for promotional purposes, but just to share some of the little tidbits that passed through my brain..not promotional. The blogs I started to read were inspirational, some funny and some just for the pure joy of getting to know that person. If there was a blog I enjoyed, I'd check other blog rolls to read what they were reading. I'm a commenter most of the time...don't we all like to give our opinions now and then? Funny thing, bloggers started to comment back and I started to read many different kinds of blogs from all over the world.
So my rambling thoughts have come to this conclusion...a lowly comment leads to a form of growth within us, which is something I never expected. Just by a simple comment, I have made friends and visited many parts of the world, either through your eyes via pictures or through your words written to the vastness of the blog world. There are so many blogs out there that I haven't even found yet..pretty cool to say the least! Are there any out there you want to recommend?
PS..if I missed you in the blog roll, please don't be shy...do let me know! And remember, today at 5PM central time, I'll announce the winner of the amethyst pendant jewelry giveaway so click here and leave a lowly comment and you're good to go!
