  1. This is perfect advice! Thanks for reminding writers. :)

    Yummy guy. I suddenly feel the need to take a dip!

    • Amber – I think there are a lot of authors who don’t do a lot of visiting and a little advice to how to do it well I thought might help.

      Glad you enjoyed one of my cabana guys 😉

  2. Hi, Nina. I’ve only done less than a handful of blogs, but I love commenting on each persons comment. After all they’re talking to me. I’m a guest today on someone elses blog and I feel it imperative to check in through out the day. One blanket thank you doesn’t cut it.

    Nice post.

    • Cora – I totally agree with you. There’s nothing more fun than having a discussion start on one of your blog posts. Of course the only way for that to happen is respond to visitors.

      Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your guest blog is fun and successful.

  3. Those are all great suggestions…I think more people need to read this. It surprises me how sometimes people just brush it off and don’t reply or even say a word to people who come by to show support. I always try to thank everyone even when I’m hosting a guest on my feature, and it has nothing to do about me. They took the time to come by and it means a lot.

    • Savannah – I’ve seen guest blogs that are nothing more than a blurb and an excerpt. It’s hard for visitors to respond when there’s not really anything to talk about. It’s times like that when I find there’s not much happening between visitors and the author.

      And I like what you said about visitors. It certainly is nice when they hear from both the owner of the blog and the guest since they did take time from their busy day to stop by and comment.

  4. Words of wisdom, Nina. Hey, wouldn’t you like to be the woman who patted the sand on him?

  5. Hi Nina,
    Very interesting blog, and one that is well worth reading. I can’t imagine leaving a host hanging in the air waiting for the blog to come in. I get very nervous listening for an expected phone call, much less waiting until the last minute to post someone’s article on a blog.
    Loved the pic with the little guy and his pooch! He almost beats out the hunk with the sand!
    June, the dull side of Sophia!

    • Sophia – Authors are busy so it’s understandable. (Been there myself.) But I did once get the post on the day it was supposed to post … yeah, that one didn’t work. LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by.
