I want so much to be a better writer and to blog more regularly about something besides giveaways. I think many of you who happen to read my blog would probably appreciate it if I blogged about something besides giveaways. In the past when I blogged more regularly on my homeschool blog, I seemed to come up with more things about which to write. Has the on-set of Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Technorati and so many other social networking and “fidgeting” sites caused all of us to neglect blogging? Somehow, I don’t think so. I still read plenty of well-thought-out and well-written blog entries… just not on my blog.
There have been a few times when I’ve blogged about “blogging.” For instance when I started blogging more regularly over here (at Anita’s Antics), I posted an entry (on my hs blog) called, “Blogging Confusion.” And, about a month after that, I apologized to my homeschool bloggy friends with “Neglected?” Then, of course, there’s my infamous not so famous “Too Many Blogs” entry which produced a whopping one comment (thank you, Sandpiper!). Also, I received several comments on my “To Blog Or Not To Blog” post on my hs blog… but only after I bribed, begged, asked.
So, I guess what I’m trying to say is that I think it’s pretty lame when one has to resort to begging pleading to get comments. And, I wish that I was a better writer so that I didn’t have to resort to begging such methods. Also, I wish I didn’t have to do “memes” to try and “drum up” comments either. (A “meme” is… oh, I need to find the post where I explain my understanding of memes. After searching through my “Tags and Memes” category on my hs blog, I didn’t find where I explained them. So, I guess I never blogged about that.) One thing I’ve found that sometimes helps me get more comments, and that is… leaving comments for others. Wha…? Are you shocked? 😉 Unfortunately, it seems I must leave BEAUCOUPS of comments just to get one or two in return. But, I digress.
BTW: In case anyone is interested, I added something to my “About Me” page.
