No one returning your calls? No one leaving comments on your blog site? Feeling isolated and unappreciated?
1. People will often remember you based on your outside interests (e.g. what you do for fun on weekends). They may either have the same interest or just find you darned fascinating. And if you aren't interetesting or fascinating – get up off the couch and do something!
2. People will contribute to your life and your blog if you provide them a forum for discussion and interface.
