Three words, eight letters, say it and I know you expect a reply back. I love you too!
I love you too starts from I love you. You see, it is a reply. Replying is very crucial to communication because it acts as an affirmation that the message has been sent and received. To be able to maintain a relationship, replies should be made. Of course everyone expects an ’I love you’ back when one said ‘I love you’. Any unrequited feelings, well you know, do not really last that long. It would not flourish and it could eventually die.
Same goes with blogs. Now we’re getting somewhere. Blogs are not a one way communication where one posts an entry and then end. To be able to maintain a blog, replying is very essential. Reply is an affirmation that the entry has been read meaning that there is a message that has been communicated. It is like saying I love you too when one said I love you. I hate you too when one said I hate you. And for people who are kind enough, they say I love you too to someone who said I hate you. The picture below is an example of a well maintained blog. Look on to the number of comments, how healthy can this blog get! 😉
Replying is also a good sign that there is communication going on in the relationship. And we all know that healthy relationships maintain good communication. Not replying is also like having no communication at all. Set for example, the unrequited feelings of a person, soon they would stop the act of loving because they would think eventually that they do not matter to the person they love. Like in blogs, when you leave a question, you of course wait for an answer – from the author of the blog. And it is very frustrating that you have not got any replies. It is as if you are not heard. That what you left at that comment box was not addressed or the act of trying to communicate was not returned at all.
The drive of coming back for the next post, may still be an option at the first few times, but then again when there are still no replies, soon you will grow tired and then finally you stop reading that blog and you stop visiting the site. How many blogs are poorly maintained now because they function not as a blog – which communicates and replies back– but more of press releases intended only for promotion and for profit. So what happens is.. look at the number of comments 😦
.. then the blog dies.
So before it is too late like the 0 comments above, go make a reply on that I love you! Or better yet be the one to say it first and start rolling the communication in that relationship of yours.
What better way to do so is to start here and leave an I love you too to this post because I just told you I love you! Spread the love! 😀
