Fellow Blogger users will know it's been slowly but steadily upgrading itself, with improved functions and performance, and better design and user-friendliness. I understand Wordpress has the best reputation as a blogging platform, and the Tumblr format is very popular these days, but I've always liked Blogger, and it's been really enjoyable to watch it change and grow, and work out how to play with/implement some of its newer features.
One of its latest improvements has been an upgraded comments system, to allow you to more easily mark off comments as spam. I'm very lucky - I haven't ever had much of a spam problem. The feature finally appeared on my blog today, and I was able to see that in the six years since I began this blog, I've received 3672 comments.
This averages around four comments per post. How amazing! Every time I write something, on average four people have taken the time to give their opinion about their piece of writing, the topic itself, share a story or just be generally witty and charming.
So hearty, hearty thanks to you, dear commenters. It really makes my day when you write - even if you disagree with me or dislike what I've written! Of course, I deeply appreciate everyone who reads, and I would certainly love to encourage more people to comment (even though I understand it's not for everyone).
I find it hard sometimes to know what to write. Sure, I like to write about things that I'm interested in, or that amuse me, but I also like to be an entertaining read, and take into consideration what people like reading about. So please feel free to leave me suggestions or ideas - all inspiration is welcome.
