One of the most important characteristics I find in other bloggers is reciprocity. I’m not trying to win a popularity contest, I’m trying to find like-minded individuals who are interested in my work. Another fruitless follow or another comment-less like just doesn’t mean much to me.
I’ve gave feedback on a number of blogs who just soak up the attention and never bother saying anything back. On the other hand, I’ve shown interest in others’ works by making comments and giving critiques, and they automatically took an interest in my materials.
It is kind of frustrating in a way because the kind of blogs I usually look into, blogs about writing, especially those writing a novel, really take a significant amount of time to analyze.
Maybe it is just me, but for those who take the time visit my side of blog-space, I always return the favor.
