Look, I'm not asking; they are. Paula, Elvis and the ladies of the Supremes want to know.
Okay, not really.
This is just my humorous attempt to touch on a vital aspect of blogging: comments.
(all via Meet Me in Philadelphia)
Blogging on a regular basis can sometimes take a lot out of the blogger, especially if you've been at it for a few years (I started in March 2010). My projects/home haven't been featured on major websites or magazines but that wasn't necessarily what I was after. I wanted to be a part of the larger, ongoing conversation about decorating our homes with an attention to style and budget, and I'm happy to say I feel a part that community.
Comments are a way of engaging in that conversation, to chime in, to share your opinions or experiences; but comments are also a way to add fuel to the sometimes-empty gas tank of the blogger. Before I make it seem like comments have all but disappeared, I have to gratefully thank and acknowledge all of those blog friends who readily share their comments on my posts--you all are fantastic and I adore hearing from you each time you comment.
I guess my hope is this: to keep the conversation here going as long as I can. Followers and page views have consistently increased since I started this blog, and that means the world to me, so I know people are tuning in. I'm glad you're reading! But I want to be sure the content on Meet Me in Philadelphia is engaging enough here to generate that back-and-forth conversation between blogger and reader that I really value.
Please don't be shy. I love opinions and, of course, I like hearing my projects and ideas are good ones (let's be honest, who doesn't?)! Don't be afraid to share your 2¢!
Thanks for reading, friends. And I'm only partially sorry I had to get "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?" stuck in your head to communicate my point.
'Til Monday, friends.
