Color me gone. See you later, alligator. Catch you on the flip side. Adios. Good Bye.

Everyone has their favorite saying to let others know they’re leaving.

And, that’s what I’m doing.

I’m leaving my blog (temporarily) and heading over to Jeremy Day’s Insight Writer blog for an interview.

Jeremy has been curious to know how I do it. How I get the comments I do, what advice I would give to other bloggers, plus much more.

So, I told him.

Want to know what I said?

Head on over to Insight Writer and check out the interview. Here’s the link, Interview With Barbara, Author of Blogging Without A Blog.

I’ll see you there.

    Great stuff Barbara! Community is such an awesome part of the blogging world, and it’s great to hear what works for you – you’ve done just a fantastic job at really fostering that here.

  2. Great answers! I love that you think blogging is about learning from others. If all of us got our news from the TV we wouldn’t be as diverse of a society as we are now.

    Hi Barbara. I enjoyed the interview. Community is constant over here at BWAB, because you nurture it by supporting other bloggers. Thanks for everything that you share here including the bloggers you find from scouting around the blogosphere.

    Hi Lance – Thank you. Yes, for me, community is very important, as is helping others grow theirs. It’s the support of our loyal readers that keeps us motivated.

    Hi Karl – Thank you. Isn’t it amazing what we can learn from others? When others share their experiences, whether work or personal, there’s always something we can extract from the information to make our lives better.

    Hi Linda – Thank you, and you’re welcome. It makes me happy to hear what I share is helping others, as that is my intent.

    Hi Robin – Oh yes. I most definitely care about people. How lonely it would be if we didn’t have others to share with. Add blogging to the mix and the world becomes even smaller.

    Hi Davina – You’re welcome, and thank you for your kind words. As you know I enjoy finding new bloggers to showcase. And what makes it even better is when those of you who are in the BWAB community welcome them, too.

    Hi J.D. – Haha! “Make like a tree and leaf.” I forgot about that one.

    Yup! It’s only temporarily. No one can get rid of me THAT easy. 🙂

    Funny. I just wrote an article on how bloggers like you get so many comments, and was referred over here to check out your blog…. probably so that I could take notes. 🙂
