And now December's topic: The good, the bad and the ugly

The good: The comments! People who say my post was interesting (don't we all want to hear that :-) ), or where the comments spark a conversation. I think comments are highly important, particularly for enabling of conversations. Sometimes I learn things from my readers, other times comments can make me realize I expressed myself less clearly than I thought, and I have then the opportunity to make the post clearer.

The bad: I guess general lack of comments/discussions would be my main thing. It takes a fair bit of time to write a post – not just the writing, but taking and editing photographs as well. But I know I rarely comment myself on blogs, so I assume my posts are read far more than what any comments would indicate. But at least Dreamwidth allows for discussions, as opposed to Tumblr. Twitter conversations are possible, but you have to keep them brief.

The ugly: Luckily I’ve never had any nasty experiences. Perhaps it’s because my blog is very low-profile. Once you reach a high enough number of readers, you tend to also get the assholes. (see BrainScoop etc etc)

Not much to say.
