How it is…

Written Words Never Die

Do your Comments and Replies attract or chase away readers?

If you are like me, you probably relish “Comments” from readers. And as we all know, comments are great morale boosters, aren’t they, and keep us fuelled.

For this reason, I try to leave behind well thought out comments on blog posts that touch me. Do unto others — (Note: “try” as I don’t always succeed). I also try to give thought to fashioning “Replies” to “Comments” left in my blog.

As you well know, writing is a lonely occupation. Unlike someone on stage, we can’t see or receive the instant gratification of our work. If one does not love writing simply for writing itself, they never last. As you, most of my followers came from taking the time to read and comment on the posts of others. It is a win win situation in more ways than can be listed. And reading your post is a great example.
