Yup. I'm going to be one of those people * edit *

There are 82 people in the sidebar who chose to follow my blog. I don't know how many people read my blog overall, but I'm curious so please let me know.

Is my blog boring or uninteresting?

Since my blog started, 5 months ago, my followers have expanded from 1 to 82 and yet I don't get any more comments on my posts than I did before. There are some things that I have posted about that are personal to me and no one says anything on then. I have multiple posts... 0 comments. 1 comment. 2 comments. I have to admit, and this probably makes me sound incredibly pathetic but it hurts my feelings when I post about things and no one comments.

I just want to know if you think I'm boring? What can I do to make my blog more lively, more interesting, more cool. There are things I want to do but I feel like I don't have the true following to do them. 

I already feel lame posting about it, begging for comments, so if you have nothing nice to say just leave my blog or don't say anything. But I'm honestly looking for suggestions or help..?

EDITED: I am guilty of this too. I read peoples blogs and I don't always comment, so I understand that it happens at times.

I read every one of your posts. It's my fault that I don't comment, I'm terrible about that!! :) And I apologize. But I know how you feel! I think you have a great blog. :)

I'm guilty of reading and not commenting, but sometimes I don't have anything unique or interesting to contribute. I've noticed that the people that comment on my blog are the ones that I comment on in return. I also respond to their comments on my blog via email, so it's like building virtual relationships.

I read your posts- sometimes not all of them because I follow too many people and I don't log on every day. So, I'm a bad follower! I have more than 220 followers, and many posts go uncommented.. I think it's just part of it. I read many that I just don't know what to say- and say nothing at all.

I read all your post but i am guilty of not commenting. I don't always no what to say. But i know how you feel i have 97 followers and get maybe 2-3 comments and sometimes 0. I will try and be a better follower and comment more. I really do enjoy reading your blog!!

I'm sorry! I, too, am guilty of reading and not commenting! However, I think everybody is going through a little bit of this right now, since summer is so busy for everyone. I've barely had time even for blogging. I think once fall/winter sets in and it gets colder and life slows down, it'll pick up. :)

BTW, I tagged you in something on my blog! :)

I read a lot and dont always comment mostly I feel I have nothing to add to what you said or someone else comment pretty much what I was going to say. If you or anyone else have blogs about religion I dont comment at all it one of those things that its better that I just dont say anything.

I always always read blogs, but I am terrible with commenting. I rarely get them too so I can totally relate. It sucks to pour out your heart into your blog and have it feel like no one read it!

I'm always reading people's blogs and I do my best to comment on people's that I find interesting and for those who comment on mine as well. I know I have the same problem though. I have 84 followers and I haven't been getting many comments at all lately. I used to get like 13 and now I'm lucky to get two. Just know that if I don't comment, it's not because I think you are boring I just don't have the time but I make it around eventually!

Sweetie, you are anything but boring! Most of the time I'm reading and then running off to deal with the kids. I know how you feel though. Hardly anyone ever comments on my blog either. But you know I love ya :)

I am very much guilty of reading and not commenting. Especially when I have weeks where I just get backed up with reading blogs. I had 248 new ones when I opened it this morning. *hide* But I do read them.

Yiu are not boring!! I always read your blog! I don't always comment because I will comment on stuff on Facebook your other blog. I forget where I have left comments and always mean to come back and comment but I am a spacecase and don't remember to. I <3 your blog!!!

Brittany Sommer said...

Cheyla Marie said...

Beka said...

Awww! I'm sorry! I'm guilty! I read your blog and I really enjoy it, sometimes I just can't think of anything to say or I haven't been on in a while and I'm trying to catch up so I just read everyones post and don't comment. I promise to comment more though. :)

I love this blog! It is totally interesting to me :0) Don't feel bad, my blog gets a TON of views, but no comments. I think we are all just lazy or something...lol

I read your blog :) I don't always comment on blogs, but I read them! I know how you feel. One post in particular that I wrote for September 11, I only got 2 comments. I really don't think anyone read it, because the post wasn't just about 9/11, but it was about the day my dad died.
