Comments 101

Right, people. In the interests of making this blog more attractive to NON Family members I have decided to write more posts, more regularly. The idea of a blog, other than to keep family up to date on the goings on in our lives, is to join a whole new community of similar minded people and interact with them in the blogsphere.

As it stands I do interact with them... on their blogs. So the question is, how do I get them to come over to visit me? The technlogy in this seems to elude me - please feel free to enlighten me if you know what I have to do there - so I have decided that more posts, more regularly is a good place to start.

I also think that perhaps more comments might make me more visible to all those search engines. So, in the interests of giving me a step up, I need your help. I know that many family read this, so please leave a comment every now and then...

Here's how:

  • Click on the word 'comments' at the bottom of the post
  • Fill in the comment box with anything you feel like saying (preferably nice and preferably on topic)
  • Fill in the funny word so I know you are not a hacker and then
  • If you don't have a google account select either Name (url is optional) and fill in your name, or Annonymous if you prefer to remain so
  • Click 'publish your comment' and voila you will be part of my virtual community
Right, now there are NO excuses. Please do your bit for this poor lonely blogger!

Hi hon! I am terrible about dropping in and out of other blogs but I always comment when I do. I have no hints about how to drive people to the blog - more posting gets more google hits... just keep interacting with other bloggers!

I'm about to tag you in a meme over at mine though, drop by when you can!

Trace, even if it's just for you, I will keep blogging.

Sooze, I know you are always here, thanks for hte support!

Sparx, thanks, that's my plan for now and see what happens :) And, how exciting, I've never been tagged before, Thank you!!!

Indeed as Suzi says - your blog is addictive. Once I start reading I have to read everything I hadn't before. Keep it up. Love Weez
