Not Another Blogging Rule

Not Another Blogging Rule - All that's Jas

What!! Not another blogging rule. Ignore at your own risk. Not Another Blogging Rule Recently, a conversation came up in the blogosphere about bloggers not receiving many comments anymore, and some even admitted that they don’t leave any or respond to any because it’s too hard, or too time consuming, or too something else.
