I've always maintained that a blog is an ongoing dialogue between the blogger and his readers. Good manners dictate that the blogger should respond as best as he can to comments and links from different folks.
Unfortunately, I've been a little remiss in that duty these past few days.
Part of the reason is that I've been very busy, as I've already mentioned in a previous post. Between my social activities and my classes, there's been very little time to blog. Milenyo bringing down my sister's broadband connection hasn't helped matters any.
I feel a little bad in not responding because there are folks who have been generous with their compliments and their feedback. Among these:Rina, Chaz, Tobey, Claire, Wakizaki, Wyze, and Gibbs Cadiz.
Some folks apparently liked my Storms essay a lot. Thanks to Madame Chiang and Basang Panaginip for the linkbacks. That's the ultimate compliment.
The myth-making essay is still up in the air. I have the outline of what I want to say, but haven't had the time to write it up yet.
Ditto for the transcultural English literature, though that one needs a bit more work.
And then there was Blogcon that I never got to blog about. Thanks, anyway to Mrs. Dado and Teng for the links. It was great meeting you, guys.
Finally, Blogger's comment email function doesn't seem to be working properly. I rely on it to let me know who's left word on my blog. But it's been flaky for a long while. That's why I never got to see who commented. Sorry, folks, I didn't mean to ignore you. Email me directly (dominique.cimafranca @ gmail.com) if you want a response.
I hope to catch up with my backlog soon. In the meantime, thanks for reading!
