Good Monday evening to all, hope that you survived the beginning of the work week. If you have read my blog in the past, you know that I have a lot of time to think. My one hour commute each way to work gives me lots of time to ponder lots of things, especially since the local radio stations don't do it for me any more.
One thing I thought to myself on the way home today was "just how closely do I read other people's blog posts?"
Come to think of it, there are times when I really don't read some blog posts thoroughly, because I'm rushed or have other things on my mind.
On the other hand, I try to take the time and give every blog post that I read the due diligence of reading everything that is said, because each blog post is the blogger's way of communicating with us, the reader.
Nevertheless, we sometimes take other people's posts for granted and don't give them the time of day when we have a lot of other things to do.
Time and time again, I've had to read posts over and over, just to understand what the blogger is trying to say!
Each and every post deserves our undivided attention, no matter what is going on around us.
Stop and take the time to post comments on posts you really like, because that is the way that bloggers know you're reading their blog. (Once in a while it's good for an ego boost as well, at least for me)
Try to read this post as close as you can. Maybe you will get the gist of what I'm saying.
If you are still stumped, and wondering "what the f#$% is this guy talking about????", think back to what I said I would do when I hit 50 followers.
Get it yet???? If not, keep on reading thoroughly until you figure it out.
If you still don't get it, details will come later this week.
I am a mean spirited S.O.B. sometimes when I've had a crappy day....
Thanks for reading (if you still are by the way), Robert
