Uruguay: Comments on Blogs

Ganimatux, the weblog of a Uruguayan Debian programmer explains why he's been posting less on his own blog recently (ES): “It's true that we don't all have time to read everyone's blog and then also think of a comment, because sometimes there's nothing to say. But, how about a simple greeting from time to time? A while ago I started to read a group of blogs and comment on their posts. I think it's good to encourage people to continue writing since we're always reading them. Someone once commented on this blog that not everyone has the same ability in writing, saying that I wrote very well. That person might not know that even today I remember what he/she said. And so, I thought the following: if we all comment in the blogs of our friends, maybe they would feel more encouraged to recount things and not drop off like some have done. That's why I decided to lay this blog to the side for a while and pay more attention to others.”
