The day before going on vacation I read a post from Gip @ So Much More Life about another blogger turning of comment to his blog. Here is a link to that post – Comments matter…
This is the comment I left in response to Gip’s post and I mean it from the bottom of my heart
I’m with you. I know my regular commenters feel that they are part of a community at my blog and I like it that way. When I welcome a new commenter I always refer to the welcome coming from US and how WE appreciate their input. It is only me writing my blog but the WE & US are a reference to my readers and I as a community.
I even have a favourite five comments each week because there is so much useful information that can be found among the comments which give me and my readers a more rounded view of the topic of my posts. I fact if I didn’t get the great comments and questions I get from my readers some days I wouldn’t have anything to write about. They give me so much fodder for post topics and since I write every day I would run out of things to write without their help.
Ah well! We are just the little guys I suppose who still think our readers have something to contribute.
Thank you to all of you who leave comments whether regularly or just every now and again. Thank you also the those that just read and don’t feel inclined to comment. I appreciate you all for taking the time to show and interest in my blog. I hope I have been a help to you all in some way.
Please forgive me if it seems I have been neglecting you all while I have been away but my access to the Internet has been sporadic at best and I look forward to getting back to normal when I get home.
