…of better places than this; who said this was ‘members’ only?
Do you think it’s possible to be a total tool bag , or at least have tool bag tendencies and not know it?
Why didn’t someone tell me?
There is a certain etiquette in this crazy social media world and I have been known to pick up the food with my fingers a time or two, so I feel the need to apologize to my community.
Here’s where I’ve dropped the ball:
- Not reaching out to follow someone when I see them at my place.
- Not RT’ing their post after I have made a comment.
- Not featuring or asking anyone to guest post.
- Not reaching out to others in comment streams when I am there.
Please forgive me for not reaching out
I have not actively followed others for some time. However, if you took the time to follow me I probably followed back unless I didn’t get a good vibe from the site. Trust me, I’m pretty easy.
If I keep seeing you at the same places then common courtesy dictates I extend an invitation.
I’m still learning and would love to RT you
More times than not, I will comment on a post and just leave. Certainly nothing intentional and if I need to light you up like a Christmas tree by punching all of your buttons I will work on being a better student of ‘what is right and proper’. After all, we want you to get as many bonus points and a new car as soon as possible, right? Don’t you love that new car smell?
That sounds like work and my house is a mess
I’m afraid………….and I’m lazy. I applaud the people who take the time to feature other bloggers or offer their sites for guest posts. I have thought about it, but after having a couple of hiccups with extending Triberr
invitations I’m a little gun shy to ask for anything (BTW – Triberr is great). I do have broad shoulders, but not thick skin unfortunately; and need to give credit for that phrase to my friend Kaarina Dillabough
Hi, my name is Bill and it’s nice to meet you
For the new person jumping in a comment stream and seeing all the inside jokes going on, it can be intimidating to say the least. Yes, I’m guilty of doing this with the people I know (just ask Griddy
) but will do a better job of being inclusive going forward. It can get very cliquish and I don’t want to be ‘that guy’.
I have not intentionally ignored anyone. If you quit coming to my place (or never
made the effort to stop by) it was nice knowing you. If you have been to my place and felt you didn’t get any love in return I truly apologize. If you never came back because I wasn’t compelling enough then I apologize for that too; but this might be as good as it gets, it might be the only voice
Whereas I don’t necessarily expect quid pro quo on commenting as I frequent sites where they must not feel safe coming back to my place (see ‘compelling
‘ comment), as long as I can I will make the effort to go to your site if you were gracious enough to come see mine.
This is my ‘A’ team
The beauty of this is you can choose who you want to hang with. It might not always be reciprocated, but that happens in real life too. We all want to be part of the cool crowd, right? Well I assure you, my community is pretty damn cool to me. I appreciate each and every one of you, and that’s all I’m going to say about it.
What do you think, does any of this even matter?
