Yesterday’s post didn’t elicit any blog comments, which doesn’t surprise me. I think unless you are a street fashion blogger or a famous knitter, these days non-spam blog comments are few and far between (except for our one or two stalwart commenters, who I truly appreciate, Mary B.). Really folks, famous knitters get tons and tons of comments. Knitters spend pretty much all of their non-knitting time reading about other people knitting. Wow, I digressed. Back to real estate and away from my former blogging life…
The truth is, one craves feedback when you’re throwing your stuff out there into the Internet, so much, in fact, that I could crawl into a mailbox.
The problem is, of course, crawling out.
So, where do I get feedback?
We do get Facebook comments, though. That’s one reason I always share the posts to both our Facebook pages and my personal feed. For example, KKD responded to my discussion of open plan houses on our Facebook page:
“Separate room to have someplace for home office or place to play computer games. Open area yes but everything open is too much just as you said.”
There really ARE reasons why some folks would like to be away from the happy noise of House Central! CB agrees:
“I like separate rooms. Call me old fashioned.”
On the other hand, HN is a strong advocate for the openness:
“I’ve always loved open floor plans, well before they were common, probably because I’m claustrophobic. The more open space (and windows), the better…Yeah, I see the value in separate bedrooms. And bathrooms. But that’s about it.”
In addition to Facebook feedback, I tend to hear back from people verbally, too. Mandi said she had so, so many thoughts. She promises she’ll write them down, so get ready for that.
Plus, a coworker came up to me and expanded on her love of a kitchen she can hide in. I’ve heard that one many times, especially from really good cooks who want to be ALONE in their messy glory, then make a grand entrance with the beautiful results.
Next time I post, I’ll write about a few of the things we’ve been working on. Stuff is happening behind the scenes. Maybe we will even get Lee to write again. Remember Lee?
