Question (and a call for your input)

All good things
they
come to an end
but
the bad ones
do
they ever cease?
____________________

It’s short. It’s sweet. It’s Friday, folks. Congratulations on making it to the weekend. Hard part is behind you and now you, hopefully, get some time off. Maybe ponder some questions like the one above. I’ve got this nagging sort of feeling that, since the bad ones teach us so much, they’re just kind of lingering on.

Well, on a side note, it looks like I need some help from you fellow bloggers out there. Got a little assignment that requires figuring out about how bloggers build and maintain their images, and how they interact with others for a class I’m taking. So, if you feel like helping a blogger out, I’d be much obliged. All I need you to do is leave a comment here and we can chat, or you can send me an email at amuse.lass@gmail.com Once again, I’d greatly appreciate any input and I would love the chance to connect with all of you.

Well, here’s to hoping that your weekend is long and that your drinks are cold, folks, so that Monday finds you roaring and ready to go.

  1. I have found so very many people who are most friendly on wordpress. Many are willing and ready to share some of their deepest thoughts which really opens them up from a deeper vulnerable point of view. No more kind words have been shared with me than if they came from my own loving mother.

    I cannot wait to get on wordpress in the morning to greet my followers and those I follow to see what their day will entail. I learn much, am fascinated by many and can see what’s going on half way around the world and back. I am very close friends now with some and I am sick with chronic illness so can’t get out much. I rely on wordpress for my daily outings right on my lazy boy chair. Thanks for your input and shares.

    1. Thanks a million for the input, cttbbelliott! I honestly appreciate it 🙂 As for those friendships you formed, was it because of a mutual bond that grew from just being fellow bloggers or was there a common interest that gave you something to communicate about? Also, would it be alright if I add you and your blog in a thank you post I’m doing on Monday? I wanna make sure I say thank you but also to give you some post buffs thanks to the effort you put into this 🙂

      1. You are very welcome. There is that mutual respect that goes with fellow bloggers as writers, for one, that attracts us to one another.

        My main interests lie in chronic illness and Christianity as I strongly have both. So interests, most definitely. I also have been striving to get more of a following and follow others who can be so interesting. Socially I am very limited to getting out due to my illness so I highly depend on my socializing through the internet. I have no qualms with your using my reply in your thank you. I am also an author and I strive to find interested parties who would enjoy a good read. Blessings to you and thank you for the very kind and heartfelt response. Brenda

    1. Thanks a million, cttbbelliott! Honestly, I appreciate it 🙂

      1. I’m happy to oblige

  3. I think bloggers are some of the most interesting people I’ve met. Maybe we are all high on the anonymity of the internet and the power of self-reinvention it gives, but I think for the most part, bloggers and vloggers are just honestly enjoying whatever it is they are sharing. And you also get feedback form all walks of life and cultures which you couldn’t even dream of in the mental culdisacs we live in.

    1. Thanks for your input! 🙂

  4. I can’t offer much input in regard to building a following specifically in regard to blogging, but I suspect it maybe similar to other venues. I have a relatively small following on my blog. I have, in the past, had a larger following elsewhere, like Instagram.

    Two things came in to play. The first, which should be done regardless, is to write honestly as opposed to writing to be sensational or to the what we think an audience might want to read. Both, I think, are transparent over time. The people who stay with us will do so because we are genuine.

    As importantly, and perhaps more so, is the interaction which you have already demonstrated. We all have different gifts, and different ways in which we express. One is not above the other. We are all just people. When I see an account, anywhere, which does not interact with others, I know it’s likely just a matter of time before the luster fades, before the “fans” feel disconnected, and even abused.

    I haven’t been as good at interacting with others on WordPress as I have in the past. This post was a good reminder that I should find the time. There are always a few minutes to give, and those are real people behind the avatars.

    1. Thank you for your input, Eric 🙂 I appreciate you taking time out of your day to write your response and your input is highly valued in the research study!
