“A blog is a message in a bottle, both in purpose and likely readership.”Robert Breault
Today’s quote provided by Dr Tanya has given me an earworm. “Message in a Bottle” by The Police
I rather like the analogy though. I have to admit that I don’t read as many random blogs as I’d like to but sometimes browsing through the Reader I see one that looks interesting amongst their recommended posts and I stop to read it or I may follow a link and to see a fellow blogger’s take on a challenge post.
Some of those posts have turned out to be really interesting and I’ve prolonged my visit to see what else the writer has posted and to read their “About” page if they have one. Not enough new bloggers have an About page, just saying. When I was first introduced to WordPress that is the way I found the people I now follow because I really didn’t know anyone who blogged.
Many bloggers will tell you that they have formed lasting friendships with the people they follow and who follow them and it all started with reading a random post.
