Do you read a lot of blogs? Are there blogs (like this one *grin*) that you read often and feel like you know the author? I know I do!
The funny thing is the author rarely knows me. I noticed this when callers would say “I feel like I know you” to me when I would answer the phones at our office. I admit, there are times when I have no clue who that person is and other times when I feel like I know them, too.
So what makes the difference because I haven’t met either in person. The person who reads our blog and comments on a regular basis is the one that I feel more connected to because they have engaged in a conversation with us previously. Often over several months before we ever have a chance to speak by phone and when they call in, we feel like old friends.
Challenge yourself today to get engaged on the blogs you read or the Facebook pages you follow and leave your comments. People love them and they want to get to know you, their reader!
