I'm sure we all have our reasons, everything from loneliness to sharing our passions, to educating others to simple relief from boredom. Each persons reason is equally valuable. But.......do we all expect every post we write to attract comments? I know I don't. I know that not everything I write will interest another. I also realize that sometimes people will read my post and not have the words required to make a pertinent comment. Many a time I've been left speechless by a post...by the sheer beauty of it, or the pathos or the pain of it. I just don't know what to say. I may even shed tears for the writer but I just don't know what to say. I expect I'm not alone in that. I've never been quite THAT unique.
If the only reason you are on Blogger is to accumulate followers and garner huge amounts of comments then I think you may be in the wrong place. You should be blogging for the sheer joy of writing, of sharing information, of spreading your own personal happiness. Perhaps you are blogging to let off steam about life events. Those forms of release should be enough to satisfy and keep you blogging.
I appreciate every one of my followers. We have a wonderful little community here...I might even say, a second family. No, I do not expect you to love and comment on everything I post. I'm here because I want to be here...for the expression it allows me....why are you here?
