If you're a regular follower of this blog, you might get tired of all the times I refer to 'when I retire' throughout this next year. But here's another vow I'm making to myself.
I'm going to be a better follower of my bloggy friends. I try to make sure I comment back to people who comment on my blog. And I have my list of friends on my sidebar so I can easily see when they've updated their blogs and make sure I visit them.
But I follow a lot of other blogs and don't get to them nearly often enough. I love blogfests but then I feel guilty when I don't get to visit everyone participating. And beyond the guilt, I know I'm missing out on lots of interesting and useful posts.
So when I retire and become a full time writer, part of every day will be spent keeping up with all those I've not been giving my fair share of attention to. I'm going to visit all over the place.
And I'm sure between now and then I'll discover even more blogs. I hope those new friends make it easy to follow them by putting their follow buttons near the top of their blog if they're using blogger. I hope they turn off word verification to make it easy to comment.
When I retire.....
So is it just me or are those word verification scrambles getting harder to read? It nearly always takes me two tries to get it right. Do you make it easy for someone to follow your blog?
