Leave A Comment Day!



Hi everyone. There's a buzz going around the design community as we speak about the issue of "lurking" versus leaving comments and interacting on our blogs. Bottom line we'd like to hear from you. It wasn't that long ago that blogging was new to me and I'm pretty sure I did my share of lurking before I felt brave enough to leave a comment. Then there was the issue of trying to figure out what I was supposed to do in order to leave a comment. And we won't even mention the "verify your identity scramble word thing". It did take me awhile to sort of figure out what was up in blogland. But now that I have been blogging Kstyle for about 5 months I would really love to hear from my readers who "frequent" but don't really stop in to say hello. I can see from my site statistics that many of you are from interesting places from all over the world. Stop in for a chat. Introduce yourself. You DON'T have to be a blogger or have a password to comment. You can even be anonymous although I'd love to know your names.

Now I know that many of you are very busy people with little time to blog and leave comments on a regular basis so here at K style I am going to have " A Leave A Comment Day" once a month. This way I will know that you're there and enjoying Kstyle but you won't feel that you need to comment all the time. I may ask a question, take a poll, have a fun contest or like today just ask you to say hello.

So HELLO from K. Drop in today and introduce yourself on Kstyle's very first
Leave A Comment Day. looking forward to getting to know you, k

Hi Karen,

I'm Sia from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I only started my English blog a month ago (before that I had a dutch blog/site) and I too have a lot of unknown foreign visitors... sometimes it's frustrating because you post everyday and you get none or just one comment.

After typing jnuglvm, I wish you a fab weekend - cheers!

I missed your birthday, K. I'm sorry - and sending you belated good wishes. I had no idea lampworking was such a fragile craft, either. I hope it warms up for you soon.

It also took me a while to start leaving comments, but I found it was a great way to make relationships, and also to get more visitors to my site. I often follow links from other peoples' comments, and am usually happy I did!
