Call to my readers

posted by Russ, July 10 in uncategorized

I know I have at least a few readers out there. Some of you I have exchanged emails with and some have commented in the past, so I know you’re out there, but I’m curious about those who read but have never commented.

So now I’m putting out the invitation. Feel free to drop in and say hi, post a comment or say hi over on Twitter. If you have a blog, feel free to put in a few notes about it. Since you read my blog, I’m interested in what you’re writing. This isn’t a request for spam, but I’m certainly interested in helping everyone, including myself, to build a little network here online.

Currently blogger automatically inserts the nofollow attribute into all links that are in comments, so unfortunately your link in my comment won’t help your page ranking. Now that I’m on WordPress, I plan on pulling out the nofollow attribute in all links that are comments, but haven’t gotten around to it just yet. But just so you know, in an effort to increase reader interaction here I will eventually remove it. The only reason I can’t do it now is because I self host my blog, and also use a custom template. I am hoping that when I have the time make the switch to use the new blogger layouts that I will be able to allow comment links to be followed by search engines.

So anyway, feel free to say hi!

  1. I think I've commented on your other blogs, but not this one…. How many blogs do you have / have you had?

    Hi Siel

    This is the only one I maintain these days. I had an old one, but that one was kind of old and becoming more personal and less relevant, so I stopped maintaining it and now I am focusing my efforts here. I liked the idea of this site better, since I've sort of rolled everything into it. Thanks for visiting!

    Hi Russ.

    I just found your blog via Solbeam's. Anyone who shares a taste for her writing can only have their head in the right place.

    Having just bookmarked you, there is a lot here I am looking forward to nosing through 🙂
