Heavy Sigh

This is my 563rd post and I think I've lost my blogging mojo. Maybe I never really had any to begin with.

I don't have many readers and just don't know how to get more. I've done what has been suggested and people find me but I guess they're not blog readers, just people searching different topics and I happen to have written about it. I'm not funny and don't write lyrical prose, just average.


I like to voice my thoughts and opinions, I love to hear the thoughts and opinions of others as well as the dialog that a blog can open but when that doesn't really happen it's disappointing. People don't take the time to comment. Maybe because I don't write about any drama in my life. I really don't have any now except the occasional flack with a sister. At one time I had lots of it but didn't have a blog and maybe wouldn't have shared it with the blog-o-sphere.


I read a decent amount of blogs and I try and leave comments but when there are already 50+ comments there and I agree with what many have said I just don't leave any. Sometimes I have a comment all typed and ready to post and I delete it. I don't know why. Maybe I should look for new blogs that aren't so big. It feels weird to me to read others, leave comments and it's like I don't exist to them. They don't bother to check me out. Maybe I'm being too sensitive. Maybe now isn't the time to ponder the future of this space.


For the most part I didn't used to care about all this. I wrote for myself and posted pictures I took and still do but has the fun gone out of it? Has it run it's course? I hope not because I truly did/do enjoy blogging.


As I said I do have a few loyal readers and thank you, you know who you are. I'm always grateful for your input.

I read your blog!! Keep writing :-) Sorry I never post comments, but I do read every single one you write :-)

If you write for yourself then it can be rewarding. Even if I got no comments, I know my friends and family back in california read anyway. It's a nice way to keep people up to date on your life.

I read. Besides, you can't quit in November. It's NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month).

Have you ever noticed how amusing the captcha characters can be when your posting. Mine said 'plexqiqu' this time. It's kind of zen and open to interpretation, no?

A blog is like a tv show, sometimes you have to throw something in for "sweeps week" to really stir up people's emotions and even some controversy.
