Just love that Francis Urquhart line and the way the astonishingly brilliant Ian Richardson delivered it. And I’m shamelessly shoe-horning it in here as it obliquely relates to Cam23 Thing 4 which is about comments (on blogs).
What have I got to say about blog comments? Well for one thing, I don’t think I’m the sort of blogger who asks lots of questions, which is perhaps why I don’t receive a tremendous amount of comments. My approach is more ‘this is what I’ve learned’, or ‘this is what I feel’ but maybe it should be more - I think this, how about you?
Having said that I don’t lie awake at night worried that my blog posts don’t elicit heaps of comments because that’s not why I’m blogging - I primarily blog to process and record my thoughts and to share my take. Now if my blog wasn’t getting any hits, I might feel different. When the whole EBSCO Harvard Business Review debate raged last year I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get a bit of a kick out of the fact that 635 people viewed my post on the subject. It’s worth nothing that the post has only received 2 comments in total, so in my opinion comments are definitely not the ‘be all and end all’ and a lack of them should certainly not put you off blogging.
Any comments anyone? Anyone? Hello? Sod yer then.
