I just made this comment on another blog, but I think the other blog has been all wrung out, so I’m resubmitting it here.
I’m not sure if everyone realizes, but each member of this forum has friends, or family that frequent this site. So maybe he isn’t contributing with talk, but he’s contributing a multitude of viewers from the outside.
I think the main reason I joined this site was to show projects I’ve done over my years of woodworking, & being that I don’t sell things, I’m able to show the things that I’m proud of to others. I also liked the unique way Martin set it up so you can show more than one view of your project. For some things such as carvings, one view is not enough.
As for making comments, I think the ones who blog seem to be the ones doing the most comments. This forum is the first place I’ve had the experience of any kind of blog. I didn’t even know what a blog was. I do notice that after blogging myself, that I’ve been more outgoing on my comments.
PS: Maybe we should eliminate the competitiveness of all the activities of our members. What do the rest of you think ? My personal feelings are to eliminate activity ratings, ”we should all be equal.”
