I’ve been enjoying blogging for the last nine months, because it has challenged me to write consistently, and to learn how to do re-writes and editing. The unintended consequence is the dialogue afterwards, which has been a pleasant surprise. I enjoy it more than the likes and follows, because engagement means I’m writing on subjects about which readers have an opinion. I would like to take a moment to utilize that WordPress stat list “Top Recent Commenters” to thank some bloggers and highlight their work:
Wyrd Smythe at Logos Con Carne: He’s a conversationalist. His blog is eclectic and sometimes mathematic/scientific in nature. And he watches a lot of TV. Wyrd Up! Yeah, I know I just dated myself.
Kay at A Gracious Life: Her blog title belies her kind and gentle commentary. She writes a sweet blog out of Manila. Thanks, Kay.
Stephanie Briggs at HONIEBRIGGS: She’s a straight shooter, both as a writer and a photographer. Thanks, Stephanie – I just got your book Summoning the Strength in the mail and will be adding it to my winter reading pile of books!
Ruth Rainwater at A New Beginning: Ruth strikes me as someone I’d like to have next door – a solid citizen with a great sense of humor and a positive outlook. I’m pretty sure she’d always have sugar on hand, too. Thanks, Ruth!
The French Ex-Pat at The Greedy Frog: She’s generous in her commentary, but don’t read her blog hungry – you’ll end up gnawing off your own arm. Que c’est délicieux !
I’ll stop at five bloggers for now, but I am thankful for all the people who take time out of their busy lives to read and comment. I also appreciate the likes and the follows, of course! I’ve decided to write a monthly gratitude post. Blogging wouldn’t be the pleasure it is without you. So thanks, and we’ll talk soon!
