Dear New Blogger,
How’s it going? It looks like you’re settling in here pretty well. It’s great to have you in the neighborhood!
Listen, I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that I really loved your post. It made me laugh, then it made me think. I would have told you in a comment, but, well…
I don’t want to come across as critical or anything. It’s your blog. You can certainly set it up however you want. But the thing is, it took me a couple of minutes to even find something to click on to leave you a comment. If your post wasn’t so incredible, I would have given up and gone off to play Angry Birds or something.
The good news is, I did find the link to leave you a comment at last. I clicked on it, all set to tell you how much your post meant to me.
The bad news? I had to log in using some old account that I haven’t logged into in a long time because my password is saved on my computer. After a few wrong guesses, I just gave up. I decided that even though I couldn’t leave you a comment, I’d at least share your post with my friends. I know they’d get as much out of it as I did.
Again, it’s your blog. Maybe you don’t like the look of little Facebook or Twitter or whatever icons cluttering up your page. But I was already a little aggravated from the comment thing, so I really didn’t feel like copying down your post’s URL and title, going over to Twitter or Facebook, signing in (hopefully those passwords are stored in the computer, too) and creating a post about your post. I mean, I’ve already spent as long on trying to communicate about your post as I did reading it.
Since I do like what you have to say, I figured I’d want to check back with your blog to see what else you’ve posted from time to time. Since I’m pretty busy most of the time, I know I’ll forget if I just bookmark your blog, so I looked around for a mailing list sign-up form. If it was there, I didn’t see it. Didn’t see an RSS feed, either. Well, hopefully I’ll remember to check my bookmarks and see your blog listed there – if I can find it among the hundred or so other sites I’ve bookmarked and never returned to.
Well, New Blogger, (sorry to call you New Blogger, but I don’t see your name anywhere on the page) hopefully we’ll see each other around. I wish you the best of luck with your blog!
Have a great day!
