I've noticed that there has been a major decrease in comments over the last few posts here and I was wondering...

so why is that exactly?

because you post too often! I can't keep up with it all! A minimum of once a day is waaay too much!
because you haven't been posting graphics. That's the only reason I have you friended, you know
because you've been talking about stuff I don't really care about (models, alias... wtf?) and I don't really have anything to say
because I do have something to day, but then I remembered that it's better to say nothing at all if you can't say anything nice
because I've been really busy at work
because Christmas time has been really crazy for me
because you post at 3:00 in the morning! What's that all about?
because of... "other" reasons that I shall explain in the comments

Sometimes I have nothing to say to certain posts. But you shouldn't change anything because writing posts specifically so people are able to comment on them is lame.

Just write what you want. Even if I don't comment I'm still reading.

hmm... maybe if you left a comment saying "just so you know, I read this but I have nothing to say" that would settle my nerves? I don't know :P

A combination of a) too busy and b) not having anything to say about Alias or models :)

but like harbourlight says, you should just post what you want to post! Comments be damned.

yeah, I try to, it's just a bit disheartening :/

For some reason I get my hopes up that lots of people are going to say things like "oh, I had no intention of watching Alias, but because of your random gibberish I'm going out to buy the DVDs right now!" or "wow, check out Reid Prebenda! :o *runs off to google him*" :P

Comment count on most people's LJs have decreased a lot this past week. Christmas is coming, people are going home to visit family, and have less time for online life. My own posts are getting maybe 4 comments at the most these days, if I'm lucky. So don't worry about it.

And besides, comments shouldn't be your aim with your posts. Just continue ranting on about things you want to rant about. That is essentially what an LJ is all about, right? :)

yeah, you're definitely right about the Christmas thing. Judging by how many poll replies I received, it doesn't look like most people are even in a position to see my comments :P

meh, a few people have been saying that but what can I say, I like comments :D

uh, I think I've been commenting more lately. If there was an option for that, I'd tick it :)

you've replied to 3 of my last 8 posts (this included) so I guess that's more? *shrug* :P
nargynargynargynargy on December 23rd, 2008 10:46 pm (UTC)
Hmm, yeah but before that, I'm sure I was commenting to like every 6th post or something. So 3/8, definitely more than I normally would.

I've been throwing up lately lol. But don't worry about what we think. Post what you want.

ah, that sucks right before Christmas :(

yeah, that's what I usually do but I recently decided I want attention :P
