It’s occurred to me of late that I’m becoming like one of those dastardly politicians whose standard response is: ‘No comment’. Not in the same context, but equally inexcusable.

What I’m referring to is when we read blogs and either agree or disagree with them -think they’re fab or not -then don’t leave any comments. We’re all busy and I’m not suggesting we leave comments on all blogs all the time. What I’ve found I’ve been doing however is reading a post then sharing it on twitter if I think it’s worth sharing, but not giving any feedback to the author of the blog. Kind of mean. It’s almost parasitic behaviour-the only redeeming factor is I’m spreading the virus!

The number of comments as we know, does not reflect the number of readers. Chris Brogan gets at least 50 comments per post, but his readers would easily exceed 50,000. I’m lucky if I get one or two -because I’ve been a lazy twat lately and not entered a post for a long time – and it’s karma no doubt for me not leaving comments myself.   

So I’m going to make a concerted effort to voice my gratitude and feedback to the writers. How about you? Because without it, they and their readers are not privy to your point of view which may have some real value.

Oh and no pressure to leave a comment 🙂

Yours happy in my resolve
