Would you promise this too?

Some bloggers are often led astray when they have been blogging for say months on end, or years… they forget the reason why they started blogging in the first place. It becomes a problem when blogging takes over your world totally and you live as a recluse, not wanting to socialize or have anything to do with the outside world. You forget your bearings and live solely for your blog. Okay, I am not describing the symptoms of blogivitis here, because for some bloggers, they don’t even admit they have a problem.

Last night, as I was doing some blog-hopping at home, I read a very thought-provoking post at Liz Strauss’s site. She wrote about the blogger’s promise, something that was originally posted by Joe. Crystal clear. Precise. Straight to the point.

I want to reaffirm my blogger’s promise today.

My Promise

  • I will be sure to comment on other Blogs if I can add to the conversation.
  • I will respond to comments on my own Blog.
  • I will acknowledge any links to my Blog with a comment on the linker’s Blog.
  • I will continue to link to other Blogs that are pertinent to a post’s content.
  • I will once again be a part of the Blogging Community.

That is my promise to the Community as a whole, in part, and individually.

If you feel you are losing some of the interaction that is an integral part of Blogging, you may want to join me in this Promise to the Community.

Would you care to join me in making this promise today?

    *holds up three fingers of right hand and recites after GT* I pledge allegience to the blogging community… bla bla bla bla bla…

    The Giddy Tiger says: Cool! Come join me…

    This is really cute…but the first one is very hard to keep to, especially with my growing workload! 🙁

    The Giddy Tiger says: We should try our best, at the very least!

  3. Liz Strauss says:

    Comment when you can. It’s just as in the real world. Add to the conversation, when you have the opportunity. 🙂

    Thanks, GT and Pinkelle, for making the blogosphere stronger. 🙂

    The Giddy Tiger says: Thank you, Liz!

    of course I will promise to do this too. Otherwise my personal blog won’t increase the traffic for sure!

    The Giddy Tiger says: Good for you.

    Hey Giddy,
    Thanks for being a part of the community and passing on the promise to our bloggy friends.
    @ rinnah, it’s actually fun, I’m meeting a lot of new friends this way.
    @Pinkelle, Not to worry, we don’t have to do all of them all of the time, we just have to remember to do what we can when we can. 🙂

    The Giddy Tiger says: Thanks for the reminder, Joe.

    oh dear oh dear… I’ve been slacking quite a bit on 1 and 2, and sometimes 3! eek! I promise to try to do better…

    The Giddy Tiger says: Yay! Let’s strive to keep this promise.

  7. Sometimes I think I am too interactive. *blush*

    The Giddy Tiger says: We are all capable of that sometimes.

    Thanks for the reminder. I too sometimes slack on promise #2 due to time constraint. Will strive to upkeep this blogger’s promise.

    The Giddy Tiger says: Good for ya 🙂
