I must say that I am enjoying my blogging experience.
I have been reading some great posts lately and have actually been brave enough to make a few comments on some of these blogs. This is relatively new for me as I have tended to stay in the background happy to read others’ posts and just write my own stories without interacting very much. The Zero to Hero challenge has opened my eyes to the other parts of blogging and in particular the ‘community’.
Today’s task, (Day 12), is to write a post from comments I have made recently and to link these into my post. I can now add links to my posts!
I have been following Tim’s blogs for quite a while as he is very creative with both his words and his photography. Yesterday’s post really attracted me as the words were so profound and honest. The photo that Tim put with his words was beautiful and I thought the two went together to create one delightful story. Tim rarely uses too many words in his posts letting his pictures tell the story. In my comment I told Tim that I loved his words almost as much as his picture and he responded, quite humbly I thought, that sometimes it all just works!
I made comments on two other posts and received replies thanking me for my comments. The nice thing about commenting is that you often receive a reply and a bond is formed with someone you may know nothing about, except that you read their blog and took the time to leave a comment for them.
This interaction has been an unexpected bonus to learning and improving my blogs. I will definitely make the effort to leave more comments in future.
