E Victoria asked me to share a discussion I started in another group. Please share your thoughts:
I can't remember where I read it, but a published critic said that everyone is talking these days but who is listening. So many of us are post requests for members to read their books or blogs.
For some the Internet and the blogosphere specifically is new terrain. I can't tell you how often new bloggers and vets share they are too busy to get much blog reading in and many admit that they are lurkers.
In an online environment, comments matter. Not for popularity but for interaction, the value of connection and exchange. Are we letting one another know we are listening, that we care, that we support each other's writing?
Can we start a small campaign here to make a concerted effort and leave comments for one another? And yes, just a hello or simple aggreement matters. Acknowledgment is a powerful thing.
