There’s something SO important about building a community. I realize it more and more everyday as I look out into my neighborhood, where there are very few people due to the economic downturn. I can go for long walks around streets that are dense with homes, but see no people. Thankfully, I live but 4 miles from where I had build a wonderful community of friends. It’s still very sad though as I realize that I have no neighbors here.
So, I began to think about this online community of bloggers, sweepstakers, style mavens, health gurus, etc. that I have become a part of through forums, twitter and of course Champagne Living. I go and read your posts and your blogs and I am thankful that you come to read mine. But, WHAT MORE CAN WE DO to really support one another? I was thinking about my advertisers and affiliates that I have scattered about the borders of my posts and know that my fellow bloggers and webmasters have much the same (sometimes more, sometimes less).
So for my fourth resolution for 2009, I have vowed to support my the advertisers that my friends have on their blogs. Since, I already support the one’s on my blog with advertising and since “clicking through” on one’s own site is grounds for DIVORCE in the affiliate world, then why not support my family of bloggers, writers, etc. by actively seeking out THEIR affiliates and advertisers when I do my shopping and research, etc.
So, if you are a reader, friend, etc. and would like me to support YOUR site. PLEASE leave a comment with your WEB ADDRESS not only where you sign in, but also in the actual comments so that we can share with one other. Let’s help each other grow in 2009!
