I wrote this on July 1st, never published. Until NOW!
One of my favorite things to do is read random blogs. Click the Next Blog button at the top of any blogger sites and you get a random one.
Another neat thing to do is read your friend's friend's blog. Read a post and comment on it. Most will run right back to your own blog and read everything you have just to figure out who the hell you are.
I don't know about you but I love getting comments on my blog. It helps me feel that this is a valid project. For a long time I didn't have any readers, then I didn't have any comments. Now I feel I have a few of both and I'm running 4 blogs. My empire is underway.
