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 😆🤷♂️.
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.
