Hi there Hibiscis. I totally understand your frustration in trying to encourage people to post a comment on your blog because I am dealing with the same issue. For years I have written the old fashioned way with pen and paper, until I discovered the ease by with which I could write on line but I have never ventured into the Blogging world until a few days ago. I confined my writing to a private journal and Blog Posts for local news stations. The private journals are mine and I don't share them but I found myself drawn to the Blog Posts of news stations because there was a large variety of topics and people often displayed their true passions on each. I enjoy that contact and verbal exchange so when I discovered this site and set about creating a blog of my own, I did so with the antisipation that others would engage in conversations with me. Sadly not the case but I refuse to give up. Like many here "personal blogs" draw me in and unless I am in the mood for a good debate, I stay away from politics and religion. I would rather know something about you and your feeling, beliefs and attitutdes than blunder through yet another blog about how unfair some politician. :) We all know they are just greedy and stupid for the most part so, I move along.
So...now that I have babbled on...let me leave you with this thought...
It is far better to recieve just one comment that inspires you to think outside the box, puts a smile on your face or encourages you to grow than it is to recieve dozens of comments full of nothing.
After all my grandmother once told me...A box of poop wrapped up in pretty paper and bows is still just a box of poop. That seems to apply to people and blogging. :)
Drop by and read me sometime...and don't forget to comment LOL
