I am not too sure, possibly one is as important as the other.
I have been criticized by some for having more outgoing comment than that incoming, not exactly true in the sense of the word, as more incoming comments would be posted if it were not for the deletion proccess condemning the use of unseemly language.
But I feel in my case , it is more important and rewarding for me to listen to what other people have to say, which means you are in a constant state of learning, Isn't it more fun to read what other people have written than read your own writing which is pointless as you already know the content, although I suppose it would be selfish not share your opinions and little secrets.
In the past 12 months I have widened my horizens, and have learned how to praise and put down in a more sophisticated manner, I have not lost the knack of keeping cool in the face of adversity, and I am proud to say each and everyone I have met Blogging I have a deep respect for. "CARRY ON BLOGGING"
