While I haven't yet posted on Tegan's Blogaround challenge (soon, after my CoIE review!), I feel the need to issue a challenge of my own.
See, I'm a little of a narcissist. Honestly, I think everyone who blogs is to some degree. You write for a number of reasons, but primarily to satisfy a love of writing, and to be read and recognized by others. I know I go all a-flutter when blog celebrities like Scipio and Brian Cronin respond to my posts on their blog, and on those occasions when someone--anyone!--but especially a blogger I read and follow and recognize, posts a response here, I feel like I might be part of the in-crowd. Not the in-crowd that shunned me in high school, but a much cooler in-crowd that debates important issues like Power Girl's cup size and the Avengers' Halloween habits.
So, my challenge to you, bloggers and blogees, is to go out this week, and post something on a blog that you visit regularly, but never or very rarely comment on. Maybe even find a random blog that you've never been to before, and give them some kind of comment, whether it's on the posted topic, or just telling them what you like about their blog, or asking them to visit your site about penis enlargement.
Feed the narcissism that fuels the blogohedron!
I know exactly what you mean. It's kind of like having one of the cool people in high school sit with you at lunch when someone blog-famous leaves you a comment.
Feel free to visit my site about penis enlargment also.
I blog for the P***Y.
Parry. I fence.
Yep, I think you've got a pretty clear take on what blogging is and what bloggers are like. And what you've said really does apply to comic book bloggers especially, imho.
Though I very seldom get comments on mine, when it does happen, and especially when the comment is left by one of the "cool guys", it does leave me a little stunned. In a good way, of course. :)
Nice meme, btw,
I think nowadays I comment on other people's blogs more than I do my own. :)
Nice meme though.
I would comment in more places, but I'm too absent-minded.
Someone on my blogroll started discussing Morrison's New X-Men. I commented, then blanked on which site it was and never found the post again ...
