I'm feeling a little lazy this morning so I'm going to take the easy way out and just blog about ... oh hell you read the title of the post I'm sure.
Anyway it's been almost two months since I started this silly thing and I've already learned a lot.
Here are some of the things I love about blogging:
Followers and following: I love that I can keep track of the blogs I enjoy reading and by following them can get an easy update whenever they put a new post up. One of my favorite things is when my little Yoda picture gets buried by new followers at one of my favorite blogs. When that little guy disappears I know my friend's blog is getting popular.
Comments and commentors: Probably the only thing I like more than followers is comments. Not only do comments prove that people are actually reading what you're writing but they're a great way to learn, not only about other's opinions but even about some things you might never have considered.
Here are a couple of things I don't love about blogging:
Trolls: This is actually the wrong term because what I'm talking about is more like a lurker. I don't mind having followers who often read but never comment but what I don't like are people who stop by and follow but never come back and never post a comment. I'm not even sure why anyone would do this but ... whatever.
The time it takes: That's another reason I need to start doing shorter posts. I've met a lot of great people while blogging and I've learned a lot about writing and publishing but I need to take back some of the time I spend blogging and apply it to revising my book.
That's it for now I guess but I would love to hear from you. What do you love about blogging? What do you hate about it?
Oh and if you follow my blog and for some reason I have not reciprocated please leave me a comment and I will be sure to visit your blog and become a follower.
