How often do your rush through posts?
I read so many wonderful posts, posts where bloggers pour a part of their selves out on the page and share a depth of their hearts for the entire world to read.
Then I click on to the next.
How often do you rush through a blog post so you can answer everyone who posted on yours? Maybe skim it to be polite?
If you’re honest, and like me, you might have to admit you have. I know I have many times.
And if you’ve noticed, I’ve cut back my blog posts. Sometimes I write two a week, other weeks I write only one.
I want to spend more time lingering and savoring your posts. You’ve taken a huge part of your life and posted it for my enjoyment. I’m cheating myself if I don’t pull from them what I can. I’m cheating you. My whole point in blogging isn’t for you to ooh and aaah over my brilliance.
I’ve said it before. It’s about the connections I make here.
Do you ever wonder if a commenter actually reads all of what you wrote?
