Do you ever wonder who reads your blog? Sometimes they make themselves known by leaving a comment but at other times, they just pass through almost without a mark. When you check your visitors, you tend to get a mixture of emotions...
So what's the next step? Do you say hello to the visitor who tiptoed in and out your blog ever so silently? Do you totally ignore the visit? Or do you also secretly hop over to their blogs to learn more about the mysterious blogger?
What comes to your mind when you get newcomers? Where did this person come from? Which blog did he/she hop from? What's in my blog for him/her?
What if you discovered that you shared some common grounds with the silent reader? A person from your hometown, the school/uni you used to go to, the company you used to work in, etc... Would it make a difference? What if the person is of the opposite sex? Interested? Curious again?
I have hopped to many blogs without leaving a mark and I go back because I enjoy the read. Ergo, I never mind any visits from strangers or friends. I may have been a wee bit curious at times, but I'd say, kill the cat before curiosity beats you to it!
For those reading, I thank you for wanting to click on this humble blog. Have you paused and reflected here?
