Commenting on blogs

Today I made my first blog comment.

Yes I may be a little bit insane having a blog and not commenting on the blogs I am following but on http://elanajohnson.blogspot.com/ she makes a good point about a blog being a way to create a relationship with the blog author.

One of the reasons I love to write and read blogs is to feel connected to the writing community. I realised my lack of commenting is a big hurdle in doing that. So, in the words of my friend Whisper "strap on your big girl panties and do it."

So I did. Yay to me.

Glad I'm not the only one learning the rules of the blogosphere. Elana's doing a great job helping us newbies out, isn't she?

I agree Jana, Elana is a blog star :) I never realised how many fab blogs there are...and I include yours in there too.

Dude, you guys! I'm in the room. At least you weren't saying BAD things! Ha ha!

And glad you got your big girl's on! (lol)

Three cheers for Lindsey! And hey, the QTforum is a great place to hang out! I met Elana there, as a matter of fact, about two years ago. :D (pssst...I know her in RL, and she totally is a star!)

Great to meet more starlets. I'm off to visit Jana's blog next.

You rock :)

I know how you feel - I didn't realize how important it was, either. But such a great way to connect and get support from other writers!
