A great post on personal blogging policy… Thank you, Audrey, for the tips.
I’ve been blogging since May of 2010. Almost a decade! For the first few years, I was pretty much talking to myself. Since 2015, I have observed a steady increase in numbers of likes, comments, and follows, probably because I’ve done a fair bit of liking, commenting, and following myself. That’s how it’s supposed to work.
I’ve decided, for what it’s worth, to document my blogging practices, as much for my own benefit as anyone else’s.
I’m now following 117 blogs, and sometimes I’m overwhelmed. My policy, as per my About page, is that every time someone whose blog I’m not already following likes a post, I visit that blog and read a few posts and/or the blogger’s About page, if they have one.

It’s nice to see my posts being shared! Thank you!
You’re welcome, Audrey.

It’s great when people read and like my posts, and follow my blog, but it does take more time to respond. So far it’s worth the effort!
