There is a satisfaction in keeping up a blog. It is a great outlet, a reason to write and share our lives with our friends, and a way for authors to let readers know about their novels.
But every blogger feels alone at times, waiting for a comment or a reader to stop by. Getting visitors is hit-and-miss.
After spilling feelings on cyber pages in an essay, or sharing the excitement of a new book or family news, we hope someone will take a moment to leave a comment, thus saying they care.
The sense of aloneness reminds me of a line from the musical 1776 when George Washington writes yet another plea for troupes and provisions, prompting the song “Is anybody there? Does anybody care?"
We become followers of so many blogs, but unless someone reminds us to come visit, most of us don’t return often.
This is my last blog on ANWA Founders and Friends for a while. It has been fun and I’ve enjoyed the push to write essays and poems.
So friends, happy blogging! Visit me once in a while on my blog and make me smile by leaving a comment. I’ll be back here to visit.
