31 Day Comment Challenge: Becoming a Better Blog Citizen

On my library blog, I've been participating in the 31 Day Comment Challenge and it has been inspirational and enlightening.

Normally, I blow thematic challenges off or I lose interest after a couple of days because of my ability to become absolutely and totally obsessed by nothing at all. Or, what my sister calls, adult onset ADH-shiny! However, this challenge has been a worthwhile endeavor because it has encouraged me to look at how I comment on the blogs of others and how they comment on my blog. Although I know people are reading my blogs, it bugged me that no one was taking the time to comment, then I realized that I don't take the time to comment on the blogs of others. Blogging is a lonely business and sometimes the only way people know they're not alone is by the comments we leave.

I blog not just because I want to be heard or "seen" but because I want to become engaged in the communities that interest me, but I also want to build a support system that shares, trades and vents. Each one of my blogs serves a purpose: my library blog is about my life as a librarian, my archivist's blog is about my work in the archives and this blog is about my life as a wife, mom and woman. While it seems like a lot, to me this shows that we women are multi-faceted individuals who need to feed all aspects of our lives.

Anyway, I'd encourage anyone who is wondering how to drive more traffic to their blogs to consider venturing out into the blogging community and see how you can be a better blog citizen by visiting others.
