Summer Blogging

There’s something about blogging in the summer. It’s not as ‘easy’ as the rest of the year. The motivation to get a post up each day dwindles because of a few factors.

First – the weather. It’s so nice outside that it doesn’t feel right plugging away inside. Oh sure, I’m in front of the computer to work – but I’ve been taking a lot of vacation days lately too. 🙂

Second – the comments. Not that I blog for the comments, but it’s definitely nice to have verification that there’s at least a few people out there reading my efforts. The number of comments during the summer definitely dwindles.

Third – My own commenting. I know that my own blog reading goes down a bit during the summer. Or rather, it gets sporadic; I find a block of time and catch up on all of the blogs I’ve been ignoring for the past few days…but then I sometimes feel guilty and don’t comment – especially on a back post – because then they’ll know I haven’t read in a while! (I know – who cares WHEN I read, right? Get over yourself Nancy. 😉 )

Enjoy your summer. I’ll still be here 🙂

  1. Too true! Hope you enjoy your summer!

  2. I opened up my Google reader the other day and had over 3 times the number of posts in my reader than I usually have. It was so overwhelming. But I’ve been making my way through, and never even gave a second thought about commenting on posts that were written a week or more ago. I guess I figured, at least then the blogger would know that I was just behind and now catching up, as opposed to me having read a week ago and not taken the time to comment. I can’t and don’t comment of every post, but feel if I’ve got a comment, I’ll write it regardless of when the post was originally written. Am I making any sense? :o)
