As many of you might know, I am (along with Snoskred), trying to comment on as many of the NaBloPoMo blogs as I can.
Today, I finished the 92 blogs in the letter B; of those, I didn’t comment on only 15 of them – 14 because unregistered users can’t comment, comments are turned off or the blog just couldn’t be found, and one because I chose not to. For me, I had a hard time commenting on blogs in the past, a point of contention when I had let it get to me that people weren’t magically appearing at my blog.
Of course, the reason that this wasn’t happening is that they didn’t know that I’m out here, and by leaving comments in other blogs, that is a way of getting myself out there and letting people know that I do exist. 🙂
The thing is, though, that when I started this, I had a hard time coming up with comments on a single blog, but as I’ve been going through and commenting on various things – be it nice photo here or a great recipe there; it’s become a heck of a lot easier for me to say something. When I started this, I struggled with ten which took me the better part of an evening to finish. Now, in the four hours or so that I’ve been doing this today, I’ve commented on something like 30 blogs and after I have my lunch, I plan on doing some more (along with getting some doing some more posting over at the Scambaiting blog and checking in with my 419mail blogs.
So, if you are a little bit shy about saying something, just go ahead and say it. There’s nobody stopping you 😉
