Tuesday, April 3, 2012


Anyone who has been following my blog knows that today is supposed to be Thoughtful Tuesday. I would normally post a poem or some random thoughts. I'm changing it up just a bit for the A-to-Z. This is another semi-theme that came to mind when I was trying to decide on a poem to post. I couldn't pick, so instead-each Tuesday will be a post about being thankful for our online friends because I am very thankful for mine!

Caring Creates Character

Connect with your followers, they are following you for a reason.
Appreciate that they take the time to think of you, to read your blog (or book(s) because this applies to writers too)
Recommend them. Their blogs or books or both. Their Twitter and Facebook page. Mention them in a tweet or a link on your blog.
Enjoy the fact that you have followers and interact with them as much as possible.

Take the time to care about your followers, your online friends. A simple thanks is all it takes. They care enough to pay attention to what you have to say, so you should care enough to show them you appreciate what they have to say.

Happy Caring :)

I love your 'C' thoughts. You have a fun looking blog. I really like your two little Twitter birds and your facebook connect buttons. How did you get them?
Looking forward to more of your wise words.

Laurie Peel, RP-CRA said...

Yes, us bloggers need to support each other!

I try too and I always leave a comment, unless the blogger has not yet gotten rid of the dreaded Word Verification problem. I find as you blog throughout the years, you do develop true friendships with some of your followers and that others fall off and you don't visit much and they don't leave any comments. Caring is a wonderful subject for C, I think, we all should care more.

Yours is great.

Hey everyone, sorry I didn't respond to any comments. It's crazy-keeping up with comments on here and reading everyone's blogs and commenting...

Anyway, thanks everyone for stopping by, I really appreciate the comments and I do read each of them :)
