I recently received a private message from an excellent Opera blogger asking me to visit his blog more often.
This put me in a bit of a quandary; I was forced to admit to him that I visit very few blogs on a regular basis (and they know who they are), and a few more on a rather irregular basis, but ultimately I am not really a very good Opera socialiser!
Which is not to say that I don't greatly appreciate everyone's comments and visits to my blog – I do. But I devote most of my time to adding to my own entries here and very little to roaming the blogosphere. After this person's PM, I felt a bit guilty about my blogging social reticence but really that just the way I like to blog. I still regard this medium as more a personal diary than a form of networking and that's where my time goes.
