  1. If I’ve enjoyed a post, I prefer to leave a comment … if my brain is working properly and I can put the words together, that is! Failing that, I’d definitely leave a Like.

    I do see the blogging world as a community and like to connect when it feels right to do so. The slightly shy part of me does tend to stick to those bloggers whom I already know – but every now and then I dip a toe in the water and end up somewhere new … like here! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing Susan’s post, Carol; it was an interesting and thoughtful read. 🙂

  2. Wow, love the insight of this post! I completely agree with you. It should be a joy interacting with others of common interest, whether replying OR commenting!
    (BTW! Just wanted to give you a heads up-remember the URL misspelling problem we spoke of in a previous conversation? I’ve resorted to making a completely BRAND NEW account and am in the process of completely switching to that blog in the near future…this time the URL is, FOR A FACT, !!) And believe me, I checked like five times to make sure I got it right hahaha
