I do what I can

I do what I can for bloggers that helped me to build this platform by talking back to me. I sometimes miss people and their comments and don’t connect back. It isn’t on purpose. I blame the robotic arms, actually the third and ninth arm, and I highly suspect the faulty wiring is Gary’s fault.

There was a time I would have killed for a reblog when I first started blogging in 2013. I saw blog posts with hundreds of comments on the reader and people sharing them, and I couldn’t figure out how they did it. I still can’t figure out how some did it…

I really try to balance this website and I know the email traffic from this blog is ridiculous. I’d disable that by the way. But I like to connect and I enjoy the networking aspect of blogging. It is fun to me and my WordPress app is my game on my phone. I don’t have angry birds anymore.

I comment and chat with people on the app as if I were texting people in real life. That’s why I use so many emoticons because I know they are highly professional and my iPhone has them… and they are fun πŸ˜†πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ.

I don’t have a ton of friends because I’m a father, I work full time, I have family stuff, and I made a website with a bunch of needy bloggers on it. I’m kidding…

I honestly believe you get what you give and if you aren’t getting it, broaden your net. I am just one guy and I’m amazed how many times I’ll read bloggers pretty much blame a singular person for why their website isn’t popular. Like, it blows my mind and I’ve read it.

“Well Helga! You’d know if you had read journal entry #6279 from last May! Ugh! What kind of friend are you?”

Uh… a friend with a life. Crazy.

I do what I can. Just don’t burn yourself out bloggers. It is very easy to burnout in the blogosphere. We see candles go out daily.

  1. I often feel like keeping up with everybody on my blog is like a full-time job, a job I don’t show up for half the time. I cannot imagine how you do it with the volume of followers you have. My hat off to you!

  2. Is it ok to say that I actually killed to get a reblog? Well almost… I just threatened someone, and it worked!!

    And I think it is easy for you to say you don’t understand people who blame one person… I have a feeling some Gary fellow would get an earfull if your blog crashed down. Which is unthinkable, but they also thought the Titanic was unsinkable, you know?

  3. Hey ho, I don’t comment on many of your posts & I don’t read them all (except for post #6279 & any which mention Helga), I too am married and have a life beyond the keyboard, though, as a writer, my life is mainly the keyboard!
