My noble plans to spend a week not blogging here and commenting on other blogs sounded pretty noble, but in execution? In a word, “meh”.

I certainly succeeded on the first part, but managed at best, a few comments a day during a week of travel, overload, and well, plenty of excuses.

The forecast of the image above seems to be holding strong for this week as well.

Frankly, commenting elsewhere ought to be an ongoing activity, not a once a year for a week thing. The odds of that? Three words….

An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.


  1. Hi Alan – a worthy experiment. I’m terrible at taking time to comment on other blogs. I read, nod, agree, disagree, etc…but leaving a comment – well, that fits into your “meh” category.

    I agree that commenting should be ongoing. But it’s difficult to switch contexts and provide a meaningful response to someone elses’ thinking. Too often it feels like “what am I actually contributing to the conversation”? (i.e. such as this comment)

    heh. Gotta superficially inflate those comment stats for 2010. Of course, NOBODY does that better than…;-)
