a day delayed.. sorry guys, but I have a daytime job now. Anyway here goes :
social skills is a problem for many people ( and snort.. geeks) – I have trained myself to ask questions ( maybe in the comment section of a blog?) to people I don’t know without being obnoxious or too personal. in social networks ( like the blogosphere) it is my firm belief that it’s a good idea to tell people what you think about their writings – whether it’s good or bad.
the blogosphere might be an open place, but still, it is the same people commenting on the same blogs. Don’t worry, I do it too – maybe because I have a personal relation to most of the blogs I comment on. Whether I met them on a conference, a geekdinner orÂ over coffee – the personal contact means a lot to me. So I can understand why ” noveau bloggers” are a bit taken by the closedness of the blogosphere.
I am currently practising as I preach and comment on a new blog everyday. maybe some good connections will come out of it.
maybe you would get something out of it too ?
