Don’t Think You Aren’t Missed

Ahem. While I’ve got your attention, I’d like to say this. I think it needs saying.

I admit it, I can become “attached.” If I don’t see posts for too long from those I check regularly, I find I feel a bit down. I wonder, where did you go? Is something wrong?

If you are going on hiatus, perhaps to take a cruise….

….I suggest you please at least leave up an “Out Of Office until….” or even a “Gone fishin'” sign, or something. Let us all know what’s up. Don’t leave us wondering.

And if someone suddenly disappears, leaving me staring at nothing on their http? A favorite blog just vanishes – no explanation? That’s the worst.

As in person, we gravitate towards “Person A” and “Person B” and so on, and if someone is suddenly no longer there it can even feel a bit as if that someone has died. (And I certainly hope THAT hasn’t happened to them – for real.)

Social media is just that: social. If you think no one’s reading, you’re wrong. You have readers, believe me.
