I read some posts and I think it doesn’t stir up any, 0, goose egg, zip feelings or thoughts. I rate it a like. Would it be better to pass it over?
I begin to read some posts and I think, too long. I can’t whip myself into reading it. It’s over by 300 words, and what’s the point? No comments, no like.
I read some posts and they hit the groove in my soul and I can think of a whole paragraph of praise for their skill as a blogger.
I read some posts and the sea of emotional, soul response is so great, words fail me. Still I look for ways to express my gratitude.
I read some posts and the information is relevant, current, worthy and needs to be told again and again. I comment and reblog on http://meredithlbl.com or on http://coveyview.wordpress.com.
I wonder if this is how other’s respond to the posts of our Word Press family?
My thought is we all have triggers for what we enjoy, things that make us say WOW. If I don’t get those from many folks, I’m not going to stop posting. It is my art form, the method of satisfying that call to write, communicate, teach, inform and amuse. I might not hit the mark every time, but when I do it’s so satisfying!
Another point to consider: many of our community work, have families and responsibilities. There isn’t enough hours in the day to write and read everyone we follow. I have a method. I manage the blogs I follow on the Reader page, Blogs I Follow Edit. I can choose to get an email when someone posts 1. immediately, 2. daily, or 3. weekly. If time permits I read new bloggers on the Reader page.
I was negligent about using social media sites to boost support for my friends. I love to tweet, retweet and comment, so easy; and don’t forget to pass on the good word that this is something the reader won’t want to miss.
I’m going to write as much as I can for as long as I can, and learn as I go along how to make improvements to make my work appealing to my Word Press community. I’ll be visiting your posts to see what you’re up to as well.
