I know this isn’t an original idea by any means, but I was thinking this week about the relationship between bloggers and their readers. As a reader, I feel like I am a friend of the blogger, even though they don’t know who I am. And I find myself wanting to talk about them with other people.
I was especially thinking about it this week when I read that Caitlin, from Healthy Tipping Point , announced her pregnancy. I felt like my friend just found out she was pregnant, and I found myself wanting to tell a bunch of people I know. But, instead, I just decided to write a congratulatory comment. : )
Luckily, Beth FS reads many of the same blogs that I do, so we can ‘dish’ about the news on them.
I’ve also found that it takes real talent and dedication to keep up a blog. Some bloggers make it look so easy, which I now realize it is far from easy!
Well, my cousins are coming in this weekend!! We are so excited to have out of town guests in our current house, because we actually have room for people to sleep!!
Have a great weekend, everybody!!
I agree that bloggers build relationships with the people who read them regularly. Four months ago, I knew next to nothing about blogs. Now, I feel bad if I don’t have my blog up by mid-morning every day because I don’t want to disappoint my readers.
