It’s not an uncommon occurrence that the majority of blog post in my feed reader are bloggers trying to come back from the land-of-the-lost. Sadly, most of the blogs in my feeds have had no posts at all in several months. I keep them in my feed hoping that they will return with a post now and again.
Others may argue with me, but I blame the social networking boom for the demise of blogging. Many of the inactive bloggers are active on “the networks.”
Honestly, I sometimes wonder why I pour my inner thoughts out here when I get so little in return feedback wise. It feels like such a disconnect when a silly status update or photo, posted around the same time as a thought-out post crafted over hours or even days gets 50+ comments or likes on the network.” Compared to a few “comments here and there on my posts, most of you read-and-run without any sort of feedback. Like a house guest who does and eat-and-run without so much as a “Thank You.”
I know you’re out there. Like Miss Maryanne, I see you with the help of my magic stat-counter. If you are holding back, thinking that your input means nothing, you are wrong. In fact, the less feedback I receive, the more apt I am to join the others in the land-of-the-lost.
If you are a blogger, and are feeling the same, please chime in. If you are a person enjoys reading here, please chime in to say so. Shoot, if you are a person who stumbled across this blog by accident and can’t think of a reason you’d ever come back, leave a comment to say you were here. I’d like that too.
