Keeping up with the Newbies, or not so New ActiveRain Members
This morning, as I was reading my email, I found Notifications of "Spam Comments" on some of my older posts. I don't usually look at my older posts, but some of these I had written during the 31 Days of January Challenge.
Many of us did the challenge, and I truly felt like I had made many new Friends here at AR. I didn't subscribe to all of them, but I tried to read their posts and keep up with them.
Today, as I was deleting the spam, I saw some of their faces and realized that I actually WASN'T keeping up with them. I was Neglecting them actually.
I went to the last post I wrote in January What do you Say at the End of an Incredible Month of Blogging and re-read the comments. Many of the commentors were relatively new to AR. Many I really got to know in January.
Today I have been going to their blogs to see how their blogging had changed these past 6 months. Some took off like horses out of the start gate, and others did a couple posts in February and March and have basically quit blogging. I hate to see that. It's taken me over 2 hours to write this post because I've been commenting on their posts to let them know that I'm thinking about them. I want to encourage them.
