I read quite a few blogs – I currently subscribe to 96 via Google reader of which around 35 are library-related (my personally-imposed limit is 100 subscriptions, and I purged 5 or 6 this morning in preparation for signing up to a few more as a result of this programme!) – and I do get a bit ovewhelmed by the number of posts which build up if I don’t manage to give them regular attention. That said, this has improved a lot since I’ve bought a smartphone, as I can access them whenever I want.
However, whilst I read and often enjoy everyones’ efforts, I tend not to comment, even though I absolutely love getting comments on my blog whenever I post something (which makes it even more churlish of me not to engage more). I guess my excuse is that I often feel I don’t have anything useful to add. I am more likely to tweet something though, particularly when I just want to say ‘great post’, and I wonder if tweets are starting to replace blog comments except in cases where the commenter has something involved or lengthy to say. Consuming blogs mainly via Google reader also imposes a barrier to commenting as it I need to click through to the actual blog in order to do so, though really that’s just laziness!
So my mission for this week is to make a few comments, and I’ll try to update this post once I’ve done so. I’m on leave as of Friday though, and it’s going to be a bit hectic up until then, but will definitely try to make time…
Update: 22 June – am really enjoying commenting and responding to comments, definitely need to get into the habit of doing this as it’s a good thing in lots of ways, and doesn’t actually have to take much time!
