Have you been hanging out in the shadows? Do you hide in the internet’s version of a closet, shielding yourself from all exposure with a cloak of anonymity? Many of you don’t, many more do, but whatever your choice is, it’s alright. You don’t have to give up your comfort zone to be a member of the community. All you have to do is find a way to participate.
One such way is to comment, as an anonymous visitor or using an alias. No one needs to know who you are, but that you exist and have an opinion does matter. I, like most bloggers, would love to hear from you no matter whether you want to comment positively or negatively to what I’ve shared. Of course, it takes time to become comfortable enough to do that, even behind the cloaks of the anonymity. If you aren’t ready, there is no pressure here, take your time, but if you’ve been thinking about saying something, to me or to another blogger, maybe today is a good day to give it a try. See how it feels, you might just like it.
For all my silent readers, thanks for reading and enjoying. For all those who interact by leaving comments or sending emails, thank you for encouraging me to continue. That’s really what it comes down to, if you like what I write or what someone else is writing, letting them know that you are there, that you are reading, is the best way to encourage them to continue with their efforts. So, take a minute today, if you feel ready, and say a few words in a comment to the blogger(s) you enjoy reading.
