As far as being prolific or pathetic, I fall somewhere in the middle...I think. I follow a lot of blogs because I love learning about the unique world of writers and illustrators that has become such an integral part of my life. For those who follow me, I always follow back, and not just because it's considered "proper blog etiquette", but because I'm truly interested in what others in my field (you guys) have to say! Some days I read and comment on a heap of posts, other days I'm swamped with everything that doesn't have to do with writing and I can't comment...hate those days! Most of us have full time jobs and and/or children, which is another full time job in and of itself, so life does get in the way of our blogging. I try to post at least twice a week, but sometimes if I can squeeze in just one Friday post, I'm really impressed with myself! Ha, ha! I absolutely value everything you have to say (unless of course it's really mean!) and I think everyone can blog about something and find readership.
Bogging is not just a great social networking or marketing tool, it's a great outlet for writers (or anyone) to meet and connect with others, specifically those who don't think
Of note on the blog topic:
Brian Wallace, the founder of NowSourcing, Inc, (which is a really cool site if you're into social networking) just wrote a great post on ten reasons why people are not commenting on your blog, which is both funny and insightful. So check it out! I wish I could be as prolific as Brian!
So what are you--prolific or pathetic? Are you a blog fanatic or do you cringe under your desk when someone asks why you haven't posted anything but a picture of your cat in 23 weeks?
