Feedback

If a blogger is writing a personal diary, then feedback doesn't matter. On the other hand, If, like me, you write for others, with News, Opinions and Humor, it is important.

The sound of silence is deafening. One of the ways a blogger can tell what reactions there are, is by readers leaving comments. Many visitors, however, read and leave, to browse through other blogs. I recently installed a *Site counter.

Now I can see how many and where, my readers are. In the last two weeks, I've had visits from 17 States, 3 Canadian Provinces, and 8 other Countries, ranging from Europe, to South America, and even Australia.

It is pleasing to me that people from these diverse locations are interested enough in what we have to say, to explore us. The "Huckleberry blog" from the Spokesman-Review link provides many visitors, but some are referrals, and others "Googled."

I invite these visitors to leave comments, or greetings, so that I can get to know them...

Hi Bay Views - nice blog. I agree - silence can be deafening. I've broken it. Here is probably your first hit from Bermuda.

After reading a few months worth of archives and being asked twice now to leave a comment to let you know where I came from... I broke down. Couldn't take it any longer. Here is the comment.

Found your site from http://bayview-idaho.com where I started frequenting the fishing forums. Didn't think there were "techish" people in Bayview, much less bloggers. I was surprised to see your blog, and even more surprised I haven't found it sooner.

I've been blogging since Oct. 2003, and with all the ups and downs, I try to post fairly often. Although the content of your blog differs greatly at times than my own, I really appreciate your thoughts and discussions. It makes me appreciate Bayview a little more. It makes me want to participate in Bayview a little more. It makes me want to get out and meet more Bayview people.. I think I'll like what I'll see.
