I've been blogging for just over a year, but really only been regular at it for the last 4-5 months. I find that my comments usually only come on days that I link with other bloggers doing things like A Thousand Words Thursday, Friday Fragments, and Random Tuesday Thoughts.
Any ideas? Am I just boring when I don't use those features? Thanks for any help!
Hi Jamie! Just visited your blog and became a follower. I don't think that not linking to other blogger is boring! I actually like better to read different lives stories, personal ones, about random daily things...

Your stat counter lets you know people are reading and that's good. Just be yourself. I'd add more vibrant photos too. You can go to sxc.hu for free photos.

I think a signature to coordinate with your blog would be good too. Maybe begin a meme all your own.
