Selfish on Saturday Lome, Togo West Africa Saturday, June 23, 2007
Comments on my blog are an incredible phenomenon to study, I really enjoy people watching, and blog post are good fun.
There are comment off-topic, yet interesting.
There are many advertisements disguised as post, which normally the readers never see as I refuse to publish.
Then there is the time or day of the week phenomenon, which day of the week I blog will influence how many comments. I do not try to elicit comments, I try to give a beginning, middle and end. Then hope maybe a comment is on-topic an adds to what I know, so I can learn.
Selfish on Saturday is my awareness, that if I post today, Saturday in Togo there will be less comments and I will not get feedback. I sometimes feel like an editor, thinking to myself, - Hmm, that was pretty good, maybe I should wait until Wednesday to publish so the readership is better and I can get more feedback. -
I say selfish, because I am not doing this for the readers, there are times when I want comments on subject more than others.
