Long Time No Hear

Conversations II (revisited)Image by Ferran. via FlickrHi, how are you? Kindly sit down. I’m just going to ask you some brief questions.

First, I am curious what interests you as a reader of blogs? What are you looking for when you visit a blog? I ask you this because it’s kind of tiring listening to the sound of my own voice around here. Maybe your recommendations are just the sort of thing to fire up conversations in this blog.

Because I’m a sucker for conversations. For stories. Inside scoops. Will it not be a pleasant surprise to find out that what tickles me is just the sort of thing that fascinates you as well? Or maybe not. You can stomp your feet, snarl your disagreement. Spit out your snarky asides. Or unfurl a longish treatise on the matter and give us a glimpse of your scholarly mind. That will be fascinating.

I live for the moment when I open my desktop, head straight to this blog, to see if you have left a note under the door. It will not be the end of this blog, of course, if you don’t. I’d stay at this for as long as this fulfills my creative aspiration. Until this blog feels like the good old earth, and not some desolate Martian landscape. But I’d rather have your help. :)

Do you have suggestions? Within reason, I will act on it.

    @Calvin: Buti ka pa faithful ang friends mo. Ang friends ko mga sutil, pasaway. Hahaha. "Basta" is a favorite word of mine. If I find the going getting rough, I'd stomp my feet, and shout: "Basta!" And get back to work. Thanks for words of encouragement. :)

    You need to get some traffic to this wonderful blog. Join Entrecard and Adgitize. The traffic will come. When they do, then only you worry about interactions. Keep up the good work!

    hey man i noticed that you write really well and could really elicit comments in the future. it's still too early though since you've only been writing here for a month.

    on my first three months the only people commenting on my blog are my friends. i exchange link with them so they could add my site to the daily blogs that they visit (even if my post is a least bit interesting). so on the early stages i suggest you go visit sites that have the same content as yours or friend's blogs and ask if they want to exchange links with you.

    basta dont lose hope this early in the game. ok lang naman not to post daily eh if you think you're getting burned out. sa susunod na lang pag marami ng regular readers. Good luck!

    Hello Jan,
    First of all thanks for visiting my blog. I really appreciate it.

    I think my opening paragraph help to answer some of your questions above. One of the reason that I come to your blog is makes friend and perhaps exchange our thoughts or share our experiences.

    What type of visitors that comes to your blog depends on what your expectation from your blog. If it just to create money, then you should concentrate on writing specific topics for certain types of readers.

    However, if you create your blog for personal satisfaction like mine, then you will get readers like mine too, which is not bad since what we create are friendship and believe me that these people will always come back and visit your blog from time to time.

    Btw, your blog is quite nice friend. Keep up the good work. Cheers!

    Hi there! I seldom read blogs with interesting topics for me and I think yours is one of the few. Yes, i'm a Filipino blogger hail down south which explains why my blog has different languages and dialects you might not understand. But really not that offensive. jejejeje. Enjoy the rest of the yuletide season as we soon celebrate the forthcoming year.

    Topics or posts that are just uniquely yours about your opinions or perceptions on everything. I'm more interested in opinions rather than a journal of daily activities.
    Happy new year!
