If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?
Read others’ blogs.
Of course, that’s not what I am doing now, is it? Let’s ignore that fact.
Like everyone else, my time spent on the internet is finite. Yes, I have a life and much of it is not spent browsing the intertubes, but now and then, I get the urge to share my thoughts with the world. So, I go to WordPress.
The first thing I check is my Reader page. It has all the recent posts of the blogs I am subscribed to. If I haven’t had a chance to visit for a day or so, there are a lot of posts to catch up on. I often forget whatever inane thought I had that prompted me to come to WordPress as I immerse myself into your worlds.
I don’t mind you all distracting me. I simply read (sometimes “like”, rarely comment) until my time is up and I move on – enriched with some new insight or knowledge gleamed from my blogger-friends.
Don’t get me wrong, I like folks to read my complaints or look at my pictures, but I’d rather read about what you all are doing or nattering about. Because, frankly, I already know what’s in my head.
I find it much more interesting to find out what’s going on in yours. 😀
