I thought Joe brought up some good points regarding seed catalogs, and if you've been getting your share of them in the mail, you should click on the podcast link in the first sentence and listen to what Joe has to say.
After Joe's nice little spiel, he interviews Ms. Susan about her "successful" blog which prompted me to post the following comment:
What constitutes a “successful” blog? Success at what in particular? Having lots of comments? I see a type of clique among bloggers, not sure if it’s good or bad. I’ve commented on GR numerous times, not because I expect anyone from GR to visit my blog and leave a comment, but just because I felt prompted to comment about what was posted. I’ve yet to have any of the four “ranters” comment on one of my posts, again, not that I expect it, but it’d be right courteous of one of them to do so. I’ve scolded Felder Rushing numerous times for just this reason. He says he’s just too busy and doesn’t have time, or that there’s just too many others he’d have to comment on if he were to comment on mine. C’mon Felder! and others who say they don’t have time; how long does it take to type “thanks for the good words,” or “interesting post,” or some other short greeting?
Now, I’ll get down off this soap box and open up my latest catalog!
I can hardly wait for spring! I'm gettin mouthy from bein cooped up too long already!
