I know this blog is read only by me and a couple of friends I have told about.
The only time a handful of readers come and read would be on Thursdays and Fridays when we (we’re a team) would share and post a link to Skywatch Friday, and occasionally on Today’s Flowers and Watery Wednesday memes. But I don’t do that much too often. I’m a newbie, and have posted just a few since I started early August of 2009.
Even if I have scoured all the links of bloggers listed on the Skywatch Friday meme and dropped comments, still not too many would visit back. At one time I visited over one hundred fifty blogs which took me hours sitting by myself and staring at the screen, reading-learning and be mesmerized of the amazing photos and typing comments quick and fast. In that order.
Forgive me for assuming, but there could be a lot of bloggers participating on Memes that visit other’s site and not too many really read the post and write a lengthy comment. It is understandable, also, because blogs that have photo themes are more focused on the sights, scenes and impressions of things and places. And correct me if I’m wrong to, again, assume, that blog visits are kind of a race- visit lots of sites and drop comments, and then expect that the action will be reciprocated. Caution though, don’t expect too much. That’s one lesson learned.
One Meme day, I read this blogger who has written he received a comment not related to his photo. That’s why when making a comment, I would read twice and sometimes really absorb the photo and text before hitting that button. Still, I do misspell words sometimes.
At one time, to prove my personal observation, I logged in on a Meme and visited only a few blogs. Five reciprocated my visit and only two readers whose blog I didn’t visit dropped a comment. I was happy. They found me!
