Is it worth the effort?

OK, so Site Meter shows me that thousands of you peeps visit each week. But I feel like I'm composing in a vacuum. I have to admit, I'm getting tired of putting 'stuff' out there and NOTHING.

Well I always come by and visit and would miss you if you were gone! :)

Lately, I haven't had time to attend to my blog or anyone else's. I read you -- even when I don't post a comment. Like Carolyn, I would miss your blog if it went away. In addition, we're practically neighbors - I live in Delaware County.

I'd miss you if you were gone!

I've just started reading your blog - I hope you won't stop posting!

I confess--crazy busy. I always look even if a moment is all I can spare.

Mardel said...

Oh, I love to look as well, and I have been terribly remiss about commenting. Shame on me. I would miss you if you.

I think even the things that we do to relax, like reading blogs, can become stressful. I know that I read 5 times as many blogs as I used to, so I don't always leave comments. I also notice that the comments on my own blog have gone down. I thing as blogging becomes more popular, we read more and have less say to each individual. I try to keep it in perspective by reminding myself that my blog is one of my creative outlets, and although I love sharing with others, and hope that my dribble is useful or at least amusing to some, others' reactions (or sometimes seeming lack of) should not deter me from my own desire to blog. although I must admit, I love getting comments!

"..."what Nancy said.
I def read more than I comment on too, and suspect that many more read what I have to write than stop to leave a comment too.

How would we know when you create something marvelous if you don't post? Each time you post, I read. Please don't stop.

Liana said...

Please don't stop. I don't comment as often as I should either, but your posts are enjoyed very much.

I know what you mean. Bloglines and such is a great way to track blogs, but it makes it more difficult to comment...first, you've got to click through to the blog.

I confess I usually just read the post on bloglines; call me lazy!

But I know what you mean...it is discouraging to see that 105 people have visited and not one left a comment. I have consoled myself by scolding myself a bit...I don't leave a lot of comments, so I shouldn't expect a lot of comments. Sowing and reaping and all that.

I guess you just have to decide why you're blogging to begin with. I blog because I like doing it...and because it keeps my mom posted on what's going on. I have to look at comments from other folks really as just gravy. ;)

I'm a blogliner, too, and often don't take the time to comment, but I never miss your posts!! :-)

I recently drove by the Jomar store in Norristown and almost ran off the road when I spotted it. Stumbled upon your blog when I was trying to find the store hours. I find blogs like yours very motivational. PatP

Hi,

I so enjoy your blog. I am really new at all of this and quite frankly thought you had to have a blog to respond to a blog.

When I read your note I thought I would click on different icons and maybe something would come up where I could respond. I heard the tree fall. Keep it up. Marnie
