Tattered Past: My ongoing journey through genealogy, history, writing, self-exploration and art. ~~~ Rita Ackerman

Back on June 8 I posted a notice from Kelly's Art Journaling about a Blog Hop. Those who sign up are added to a list of blogs so we can work our way through the list and see beautiful photography, journal pages, poetry, writings, jewelry and an infinite number of other blog candies.

I have viewed 180 blogs so far. So much inspiration and so many wonderful people. Many I am now following and read their new posts every day. I try to leave a message at each of the blogs I visit. For some reason I decided to go back and look at some of the other comments left on those same blogs and none of my comments are there. Over a hundred comments are lost in the black hole of the Internet. I'm mostly upset because I really wanted these wonderful artists to know they are appreciated.

So now I have to figure out what I'm doing wrong before I continue the tour. Another question I have had since I started on this journey into Blog Land. It's kind of an etiquette thing but my guess is others wonder about this too...

When somebody leaves a comment on my blog should I answer them through my blog or send a personal e-mail or just visit their blog. I've done all three but sometimes I don't think the emails reach their destination. The have gone in to that same black hole.

So please share your thoughts and answers to these problems. I can't be the only one with these questions/problems.

Thank you, and have a blissed day.
