Alan shares a good idea:
So this is what I am doing, just for the heck of it. This will be my
last blog post published here on my own blog, for a week. For the next
7 days, I will publish my ideas, communicate, etc, in the comment
spaces of Other People’s blogs. It’s an experiment, to see what that
level of communication is like. One can never have too many good
comments on their own blog, so this is my bit of paying it forward.
If it seems interesting, I urge others to pick one week out of the
year (not this one, I need my reader to have some published posts I can
comment on!), and spend it publishing in the comment-o-sphere.
When I find myself having dry spells here at the blog, I try to venture out and do lots of commenting. Commenting is essential — it’s not a conversation if it’s only one-way. I like that Alan’s formalized that process here. While I don ‘t know that I’ll pick one week to forego posting for commenting, expect that, when this space is void of new posts, I’m off making comments elsewhere.
