The 31 day challenge is beginning to pay off
in terms of attracting new readers and contacts to the blog. It’s only natural to be delighted and flattered when someone ‘out there’ … a potential colleague … takes the trouble to respond to our bloggings. I know I am. So it’s been a great idea to send an email to someone who’s left a comment on your blog. Not a bad idea either to include your own blog URL in the comment pane with an invitation to drop by. It’s been a bit like the thrill I used to get swapping collecting cards and comics way back last century!
So, now within the space of several days, I have others reading my blog, I’m reading theirs, I’ve discovered like-minded colleagues, and we’re weaving this web thingy we’ve heard can be so powerful and so much darn fun. Social networking I do declare.
Memo to Self: make the personal contact to new responders an ongoing habit.
PS: Bet Darren Rowse will tell us all to keep the good stuff going at the end of the 31 days.
