I'm wondering, some days on my blog I have a lot of comments, other days I have none. I know people look at my blog daily. How come so few comments?
I started thinking about what makes me comment on a blog or not. I mean, in truth, I've not had the time to look at a lot of blogs lately, but when I do, there are specific reasons why I comment.
I want to support my fellow bloggers. To show them that I read them.
Because I have something to add to the conversation.
If I don't comment it's usually just because I don't feel like I have anything useful to say or don't know much about the subject matter.
Sometimes I feel like I lose readers because I'm at times sporadic. Life gets in the way of my blogging and I'll go a few days or even a week without connecting with my audience. I think that's detrimental to a blog. Maybe it's also because I'm all over the place with the blog. One day I'm talking about writing, then dating, then kids, then exercise...it's a blog about life really. I've decided to kind of keep focused on the writing aspect of my life, but you know, I can't stop myself from ranting if something comes up.
Do you have any insights as to blog trending? Why do you comment or not? Do you try to change things up when people don't comment?
Here's the Friday Scribbles, which I've not done in awhile either.
Next Pandora Song: Missed the Boat by Modest Mouse (The Head & the Heart channel)
Netflix of the Week: To be honest, I can't remember the last thing I watched. Let me think a minute. Oh, yeah, it was a movie called Spork. Think female Napoleon Dynamite. Well, kind of female, she's a hermaphrodite. Very funny.
Book of theWeek: The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats. Think, Medieval girls gone bad, as Jillian says.
