I'm wondering about something...how do you interpret the variation in the number of comments left on a blog post? If a particular entry gets more comments than usual, can you assume it means more people connected to it? And the flip side of that - if you get fewer comments than usual - does that mean you missed the mark?
I'm asking because the numbers fluctuate widely on this blog and I can't figure out why. Maybe it's not related to blog content at all, but just to how many visitors came that particular day and chose to leave a comment, as opposed to "lurking."
Other bloggers have written about commenting, so all I'll say here is that I try to visit the sites on my blogroll Monday through Friday, the days I post entries myself. I take the weekend off. I don't always leave a comment because I don't always feel I have something to contribute, but I might just say a word or two to let the blogger know I've been there. That I'm still paying attention. That I still care what's going on in their world.
For that is what we really want, as bloggers, isn't it? To know someone out there is listening. Aren't you?
Hello? Are you still there?

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.
