And I do feel rather guilty about that. If some one takes the time to visit, read and then comment on something that you have cobbled together it seems, at the very least, to be good manners by acknowledging the fact with some level of response.
As mitigation I would say that time is not something I have in abundance. Get home from work for the real job of the day in discharging ones duty to the family and then time and sports fixtures permitting hitting the computer much later on in the evening.
I do tend to find the writing of posts somewhat laborious and time consuming. How it takes so much time to put together posts of such ineptitude is beyond me. And then there is the visiting of other blogs. Every time that I am on I will go through my entire blogroll. It’s no accolade of distinction but if you do get onto my list of links I will be coming to read your latest missives to the world on a regular basis. Which is why my roll isn’t as big as some peoples. I also find that this is invariably the most time consuming element of the process.
It occurred to me though that many don’t update on a daily basis. And that visiting some of these less frequently may free up time for better interaction with those kind enough to leave comments here.
Hence I have now split my links list into’ daily reads’ and ‘weekly reads’. This isn’t in anyway to suggest that the weekly reads are any less important than the daily ones. It’s just an attempt to be slightly more sophisticated with the use of my time by making it relative to the frequency of the posting to the blogs I enjoy reading.
I suspect that I will also use the ‘weekly’ section to introduce a few more links. There are several blogs which are new to me that I would like to visit in a regular basis. But not too many though as it may undermine the whole point of the exercise.
Dull post this to be sure but no one visits on a Saturday anyway. Well they don’t come here. 15 visits today by 23.00hrs. Perhaps that’s because I never seem to reply to anyone’s comments!
