I got a question to ask fellow bloggers. Does it bother you if no one comments on your blog? I had a RL friend a couple of weeks ago that posted she might quit blogging because no one commented on her blog. I mean I think some people only blog to vent and to use as a personal journal and doesn't care if anyone read it or comments or not. I think others do it to start up a conversation and that is their conversation back and forth all day to keep them sane at work. I personally check out every person on my peep list at least once a day during the week if not more. If there is a new post, I post on every one of them. If I see someone new posting in their comments I check out their blog as well. There are a few blogs I frequent quite often during the day. If I see someone comments on my blog, I try to comment on theirs if they have one. So my question is if someone comments on your blog should you be courtesy enough to check out their blog in return and at least comment? Do you care how many comments you get a day? If personally doesn't matter to me. I post to many things a day for a high comment # on every post. I may not getting any comments and I might get a bunch. It just personally doesn't bother me anyway. I thought comments on her regarding this post might help her see other points of view if she reads this.
Anyway, on with another note. It is Friday! Woo-hoo! I have been exhausted all week. I finally figured it out. I have been having weird off the wall dreams all week. I should write them down when I wake up from them, cuz once I go back to sleep and wake up again I remember them being weird, but don't remember them. Does that make sense? I usually only dream or have bad nightmares when I'm ragging really hard. I think it is a hormone thing. Well, I finished PMSing on Tuesday so why am I having crazy dreams? I blame it on Mackenzie. She keeps telling us about these off the wall dreams of hers. Maybe I'm spending to much time on her blog and it is contagious and I'm now getting her weird dreams. Who knows? Either way, I figure anyone that frequents her blog would get tickled about me blaming my weird dreams on her.
Finally, it if Friday! So enjoy and hopefully it will go by quickly so everyone can enjoy their weekend!
Just so you know...I'm glad you've commented on mine! Thanks!!
I enjoy getting comments on my blog. Sometimes it means more to me than other times. It is nice to know what other people think about what is going on in your life.
Thanks for commenting on my blog each day, and I will make more of an effort to comment on yours.
Have a great weekend!
I try to visit those with active blogs most weekdays, but some days I get busy. I don't have any expectation that those I've visited & commented on will reciprocate.
I obviously also babble a lot. :-)
I like your blog cause it's fresh and real. I like that you just post whatever you're feeling and usually what I read is funny so I comment. I read a lot of blogs that I dont comment on because I dont know the person very well or there's a theme going with the comments and I have nothing to add to it. I have a blog, you can find it through MM's links and I like getting comments every now and then too. It just depends on what I'm posting. There are times when I wish no-one was reading my blog which is why only a few have me linked. You are more than welcome to visit and comment if you like.
As for your friend, I think it largely depends on who her readers are. If they have some commonality (like knowing each other IRL or from elsewhere), they're more likely to comment.
I don't worry about it.
Regardless, Happy Weekend, chickie-poo ;)
Usually though and I hate to admit it but if a lot of action is going on in one blog then I tend to stay there for the day. Unless I missed it all(that usually happens in Carey's blog).
If someone I did not know posted in my blog I would definately check out their blog. I usually check anyone new in someone else's blog as well. I don't always post there though.
I don't really mind comments or not.
I don't think the number of posts is incicative of the number of people have read your blog!
Have a great weekend !!
Examples from personal experience"
"Ragging on Alito"= 0 Comments.
"Ragging on 'Love Monkey'": 32 Comments.
Don't get me wrong I love funny posts, but they need to at least go along with what I've said. That being said, to each their own. I used to get no comments, now I get like 20 a post. I could care less if someone commented, my site meter tells me when people are at my blog or not.
/my 2 cents
Mac - your 2 cents are always welcomed. LOL! Did you read the part about my dreams?
Bob <---mean since forever.
Comments are nice, but I don't think blogging should feel like work.
Happy Friday. Carry on.
