I know tons of folks who would appreciate it, including yours truly. We’re not anonymous or unavailable, we’re right here, hoping to interact with you.



It’s easy to read a post and move on, andeven easier to like a blog post without reading it.

But stop and think for a moment. How much more valuable to the writer, and other readers, if you actually bothered to respond. Isn’t that what you’d hope for when writing your next blog post? Nobody wants to invest time in writing something that people are just going to skim over.

  2. There are times when I read a post and don’t know what to say. I ‘like’ the post as a way of letting the blogger know I saw it and read it. If I can go back and leave a comment later I do. Other bloggers point out that if you want comments you have to leave them and this seems to hold true. Thank you for a thought provoking post. 🙂

    Excellent share Donna. Why bother blogging if you don’t interact. If it’s just to promote our wares, nobody cares, lol. 🙂
