Finally the Pessah is over, as well as the immediate Shabbat following. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy both, but in the end you just want to return to normal, especially after two days not having any connection to the world around you.
But on turning the computer on and checking what has been going on in the meantime, will often expose you to a huge amount of mails, messages, notifications, and what have you. Most of it is spam, unfortunately, but there are also interesting things among it, which you will have to take some days to get through. Especially in relation to my blog here. When I turned on my com today, I found nothing less than twenty new interesting posts by other bloggers, which I’m really looking forward to reading. The thing is, half of the excitement blogging, is to read other bloggers, and I have discovered some really good authors among them, not of all them having been given due credit yet. Some of them are among my readers, which I take as a huge compliment. That people I think are good writers take time to read what I write is definitely positive.
But the other half of the excitement is – of course – to write myself. I do love to write, especially about things which interest me, which probably is evident from this blog. But sometimes I wonder whether people really find interest in what I write about, of course, every writer is a critic of him or herself, no wonder there. I don’t know if I would continue writing, if I didn’t get positive feedback. Or feedback at all. But I do. Most often I can see that there have been people visiting my blog, but whether they liked it is not always obvious. It is more obvious when they choose to follow my blog, which really is a positive feedback in my eyes, or when they like the post. That is much appreciated from me, thank you:o). But this week I have twice experienced to have my posts reblogged, and that’s really something I appreciate deeply. That might be the highest level of positive feedback I can get, that people actually want to share something I’ve written with their own readers.
So, it being late and I’m to tired to begin to write something deep or very “learned” (feel the irony, I’m simply too tired after two hectic days with kids around me), I will take this opportunity to say thank you all. My readers, all the bloggers on WordPress, you guys who have commented on my posts, those of you who ‘like’ my posts, those of you who follow me (that seriously mean a lot), and especially those two of you who found my writings interestingly enough to reblog my posts. Let’s keep up the good work:o)
