Since I wrote about the difficulties with blogging I have grown in confidence. I have had some great responses via Twitter and Facebook and I'm steadily gaining followers, though it's early days. People tell me 'I hit the spot' or that I 'give great advice'. I get praised for my 'humour' or 'level headed approach'. Some of you dear friends even comment on the blog itself but alas most of you don't. This little missive is to ask you to change that or at least tell me what stops you?
Now perhaps I'm impatient? I've not been at it long so I'm really the new kid on the block? Perhaps you need encouragement? The point I'm making is I don't know? One woman, who I think I was in awe of and whose blog I follow, told me she, 'never comments on other people's blogs' and that 'blogger doesn't like her'. I was quite frankly surprised and saddened by that because I'd thought her a kindred spirit and I do try to support/follow other people/bloggers.
One of my twitter mates said he 'thought it was too fiddly'? I don't quite understand that because I'm no whizz and I can do it. But, is it perhaps part of the instant gratification syndrome where we don't want to grapple with stuff? I really don't know!
The last thing I want to do is guilt you out but I want my blog to be a forum where we can debate and exchange ideas and I really would like your HELP!
