It’s getting to interact with you.
When I first started this blog, I was down and out, and really missing The Girl Who Moved Away.
I needed a distraction, and someone to talk to because I was so alone.
Then you guys starting sending me comments about my blog posts.
Suddenly, I had dozens of new pen pals, and numerous conversations to keep me from dwelling on how much I missed my special someone.
Something else I love about blogging is the instant feedback I get on my writing. When I send off a screenplay to some Hollywood type, I might never get any reply. If I do, it usually takes weeks or even months.
But I write a blog post, and minutes later, I’m hearing your thoughts on my writing.
What writer wouldn’t love that?
Well, I can’t help but notice that comments on my posts are way down. I’m still getting a ton of views, but very few people are taking the time to send me a comment after they finish a post.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect a comment every time you read a post. I just like it. And I miss it when it’s gone.
Let me give a big shout out to my buddy Mark B, who comments on pretty much every post he reads. Mark, I really love it, appreciate it, and hope you’ll never stop.
I know some of my posts are totally ridiculous, and there’s not always something for you to comment on, but I’m just putting it out there that I really love it when you guys write to me, and I’d love for there to be more comments.
I mean, I am paying rent for that comments section, so why not use it?
Maybe could we start with this post. Your comment doesn’t even have to be related to what you’ve just read. Say hi. Tell me about your day. Share a joke. Comment on the world around you. I just want to hear from you!
I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for reading and putting up with my silliness!
You guys make blogging a blast! Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend…
