EVERYONE GOES CRAZY OVER HAVEIL HAVALIM

Recently I have done a HAVEIL HAVALIM if you didn't know (you probably did). The funny part of it was that everyone goes crazy over this. What did you write about me thanks for the link. I have been hopping around blogs and I have noticed almost every other blog is trying to inform its readers that My Shrapnel is doing a post on everyone elses blog.

There are two reasons why people love them. One: They love the fact that all there hard work finally paid off and someone notices there blog. Which is weird since getting comments mean people care enough to write something on it, which then ultimately means they noticed. Anyway the fact that it was noticed enough to be written about and other people are looking at it must send chills down there spine.

Two: They love to be told about what they have already known about themselves from other people. For example "This certain blog (link added here) is a place to find humor and funny topics of randomness" this would make people say thank you in as many ways and languages possible. That's all for being told the truth about your blog. It could be both reasons that pop up in your mind, while your reading the part about you.

Now you may think (or may not), Mike From Midwood why are bashing the whole excitement of HAVEIL HAVALIM. Is it because you weren't written about??? Well its true I wasn't in it but I cant blame anyone besides myself I didn't ever post on that site and no that's not the reason for me writing this. See I too get this great feeling that everything I did is noticed and I too like it when people write things about me. Its fun to see there perspective of me. I believe thats with all of you too.

People do like Haveil Havalim. However, I only get that tingle if someone else has submitted one of my posts, which has happened a few times. For the most part, we all submit our own posts, so what's to tingle about? :) It's self-promotion at its finest!

Haveil Havalim is place to direct new readers to your blog who might not have otherwise known about it. It's also a place to go to find blogs or posts you might have be interested in reading.

comments on blogs are always a compliment as well as finding ones blog on someones blogroll. especially on a blog one just randomly found.of course, at first i had very few comments on my blog , so i put up a site meter to find out if anyone was actually reading.

I'm with FSF,finding a link to your blog on a blogroll is the best. :-)

Comments are good to.

I only submitted one post to Haveil Havalim and I prob will submit more, but thats only cuz I'd like more readers. :-).

Skeptic: We bloggers write to write, but it's always great to get feedback. That's why I sometimes leave random comments-just to let that person know I was there. It's nice to know people appreciate your thoughts.

I also write to write. But I have a diary for that.

The blog is public for the readers.

Writng to write is what I do. I also like to write to be funny. I dont like my serious posts that much.

MikeInMidwood: I see your starting to get familiar with the bloggers, calling them nicknames lol

I'm with everyone on this one. It's great to be recognized...to know people are reading what you read...to get feed back...

It's funny cause at first I started off my blog thinking I would have no readers. I created it just for my own purpose. Then somehow I became involved with the blogging community.

Well it started since I would write Lion O Zion and End O World. So I decided to find one for everyone. Its not that easy.
