Become a Crop Duster & Leave a Comment!

Do you remember me? Yes I know I haven't blogged for a loooonnnnnggg time! 

But I have my excuses reasons! 
  • I had to finish teaching.
  • I had to do report cards.
  • I had to have a party (I'll tell you about that on another post!)
  • I had to play some important games like Hangin with Friends, The Dice Game, and Draw with Friends. 
  • I had to pack up my room (you'll see more of that on another post too!)
  • I had to make a bed skirt for my daughter's baby who is due in just 2 weeks!
  • And I had to have lunch with many of my friends. 
Now I'm sure that all of you were very busy too, but somehow YOU managed to post on your blog, make new things AND do all of the above! I don't know how YOU did it. So I just gave up and waited until I felt like I had  time.

Since I was SOOOO busy I haven't been able to read and follow many blogs. But this week, I did start doing that again. 

Do you read like I do? I read what they say and then jump over to someone else's blog. I read theirs and jump again. Does that sound familiar? 

But do you realize when I first started blogging (sounds like jogging or does it sound like logging?) I always, and I mean ALWAYS left a comment. It was the thing to do. It was the polite thing to do. It was the fun thing to do.

But something has happened. People aren't leaving as many comments as they used to. I know we are all busy. . . just reread my list above! I personally think we need to get back to taking a minute to leave a couple words in the comments section. I'm not asking for a novel, just something that you found interesting to read or your thoughts on something that was said. Or answer a question if one was asked.  

As a person who has a blog, it is so nice when someone does leave a comment. Can we start something right now, this very minute. From now on, let's make a pledge to leave more comments (even if for the summer time when we tend to have more time on our hands!). Let's vow to be like the crop dusters who fly by the fields blogs quickly, leave an insecticide message and  make the crops blogs feel more loved!

I'm in! I hope that you can see my comments on your blogs more often this summer. I know you write them for me and others to read. 

I hope you agree. 

You may feel free to share this same message on your blog if you'd like. You can also grab the picture above to use if you want. Maybe we can get others to get back to talking and learning more about each other.

  1. I always love seeing comments on my blog. I've noticed fewer and fewer of them, but an increase in traffic. Glad to see you are back blogging.

  2. It's called common courtesy, Patty. Doesn't take but a sec to leave a comment.

    Enjoy your summer.

  4. I feel like if you have time to read, you have time to leave a little comment! I haven't been the best blogger, but I try to leave a comment, too, especially now that summertime is upon us. I think you've started a new movement! ;)

  5. I agree! Sometimes I leave blog comments just like I respond to text messages... in my head. Oops! I'll be trying harder now that it's summer. :)

  6. I love leaving comments, but I am often reading on a mobile device. I do leave comments while on mobile but it people have the robot thing up where you have to enter what it says, I often give up :( I will try harder this summer :)

Thanks for leaving me a comment after grabbing one of my ideas! It's like leaving a tip for a job well done!
