Each blogger has an online personality similar to each of our finger prints. Ours alone. Our own style. Our own color scheme. Our own choices: Ads or no ads, awards or not, continuity or constant change, theme(s), anonymous or open, word verification for commenting or not, subscribing to the blog to leave comments.
Today I learned a new one. Some bloggers actually charge people to leave a comment. Pay Pal is available for their convenience. So if you want to leave a comment on some blogs you pay for the privilege.
I know that some bloggers view their blogs as a business. They have learned the ins and outs of earning money from the ads that take up space on their blogs. I would like to see a post by a really good writer about the ads on blogs. Some of them are so annoying, appearing again and again when someone is trying to read a post.
This is me giving a big giant sigh of relief. Sigh.
Because I blog for the pleasure of it. All of it. I choose to read other blogs and I choose when and if to comment. I choose my format and colors. Maybe I haven't had enough choices in my life because having the freedom in blogging is the main reason for my doing it. Free being the key word.
