Greg's post made me think...
about how the personalities of people drive blogging habits
...whether or not people comment
...whether or not they post pictures.
Have you ever studied the 4-quadrant personality assessment tables?--charts used in human relations departments throughout the world to teach people how to "read" personalities, others' and their own.
The major quadrants: "askers", "tellers", "task-oriented", and "people-oriented". (Falling in the middle of the quad is me...an amiable/expressive. I worked hard during class to learn to be more demonstrative and telling, especially since I was headed to a new management job when I took the class.)
Greg and I agree comments are valuable, especially for people-oriented bloggers wanting to interact and understand others' points of view.
Comments are also valuable to task-oriented bloggers wanting to challenge themselves with each blog. Several "drivers" I know won't blog because it's a "waste of their time"...have you ever heard that from anyone?

So, with all the personality types in mind and the possible loss of bloggers to TWITTER, copy and post "Lizard Man" on your site as a reminder, then take the Blogger Vow with us :
I vow to:
- appreciate visitors
- read visitors' comments
- visit visitors' sites
- leave comments on their sites
- share Christ's love
- encourage, challenge and inspire myself and those I read
Don't leave us for Twitter...it wouldn't be the same without you!
ARE YOU CONTEMPLATING LEAVING BLOGGER FOR TWITTER??
My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
