Blogging is a conversation

I always reply to comments on my blog.

blogging_swanBlogging in my opinion is a conversation between the writer and the reader.  As part of the conversation readers will sometimes be motivated to comment to the blog post.  To keep this conversation going I consider that all comments should be replied to.

My policy is to avoid following those blogs that have commenting turned off, I feel they are failing to participate in the spirit of blogging.  I get demotivated about commenting on those blogs that fail to reply to my comments, let alone follow them; usually only the quality of their content keeps my interest in them.

Sustainability Action 7 : invested in solar power charger.

I visited a store called Maplins in Colchester today that sold solar-powered chargers.  At a reasonable price I purchased a solar-powered charger for my mobile phone (cell phone).  Solar energy is free, so the more I use solar energy the less energy I take out of the environment.  The solar-powered charger can power other devices and has a built in torch.

Since I run a business, I decided to offset this solar investment as an expense against my future tax liability.
