I’ve seen, at a minimum, four posts in the last week about people complaining about people not “conversing” on their blogs. As a member of the sub-M level of bloggers, let me posit this.
It’s not that no one cares, it’s that they’re really not into conversing. The Internet is passive on its prima facie. If you can induce one, maybe two, people to comment on your site, $DEITY bless you.
That said, to those that (hopefully) have sub’d to this minor corner of the ‘nets, keep blogging; I’m reading. Especially you in NOLA.
