Many posts have been written addressing the far-reaching effects of blogging. Blogging is not something that typically produces immediate results and instead, requires commitment, patience, persistence, and continuity. Although there are many who support the monumental benefits of blogging, there are still some who question its value. If you are on the proverbial fence about whether or not blogging matters -- this post is for you.
I realize that I may never see this many comments on another post for the rest of my life. On February 11, 2012, I posted this blog. The post was featured and consequently, it received numerous comments. However, that's not the best part! As of yesterday, I am still receiving comments! And, still receiving clicks too! Which goes to show that just because someone isn't commenting ... doesn't mean that someone isn't reading. Numbers don't lie.
ActiveRain has taught me a tremendous amount about the blogging world. Since posting my first blog on October 31, 2011, I have learned so much as I continue to travel down this exciting and winding road. Yet, one thing I can confirm for sure: you never know when someone will read one of your blogs. Or, in my case, you never know when someone will read one of your blogs and leave a comment -- almost 4 weeks later!
Have you received comments for extended periods of time after first posting a blog? What was the topic for that blog? Comment here and share how far into the future someone was still reading. And, still reading. And, still reading!
