No Comment

I feel like I need to take a break. I have too much on my plate and not enough hours in my day and this blog is becoming one more thing on my to do list. It's not that I don't enjoy writing...it's that I hate not getting comments. And the bloggers I started out reading barely post any more...or if they post, they no longer comment on my blog.

I wish that comments didn't matter... but they do. Otherwise, I feel like I'm just talking to myself and I do enough of that already.

And the fact of the matter is...I desperately need a job - well I have job. I need a way to make a living. And until I can find one, I feel I should concentrate on my business blogs. At least maybe they will help me sell something, either my jewelry or writing skills.

I don't know if I can keep my fingers "shut" for long...I've grown accustomed to this venue. But maybe I will channel that energy in returning to my writer's group. At least the feedback there is instant.

In the meantime, just know that the little creekhiker and I are on the trails...

I will come here and read. I am sorry I haven't been doing so more. My problem is that my followers list doubled in a short time, and I was trying to follow all of my followers. This meant that a lot of the ones I valued most got overlooked, while I was spending a lot of time reading whatever posts were most recent regardless of whether I enjoyed them much or not.

I dropped two blogs that I follow yesterday, and I will probably drop more, because I don't want blogging to become a unpaid job that I don't even enjoy anymore. I want to read and be read, not necessarily by people who agree with me, but by people whom I interest and in whom I am interested. This thing of wanting to pile up a long list of followers is hooey.

I've let my own blog slide. It's summer, there's yard work to do, and I'm just too dang tired to concentrate on composing a readable post. I'll post if I have something to say. Don't stay away too long, I enjoy your posts!

Hi CH, I've only ever left one comment on your blog, which is going some since I've never left a comment on any of the blogs I read. You don't always say the safe or popular thing, but you say what you think and maybe that's why yours is one of the first I read on any given day. My lack of comment is personal preference, although twice now, I've felt moved to reach out to you. I wish you and 'lil Mabel Lou all the best and I will check back now and then to see if you've popped in to say hi...

Hi Holly - I stop by almost everyday but I'm not a big comment leaver either. I have especially appreciated your stories about the creek people. You've given homeless people faces and identities which I think is an important thing. Enjoy your break and I hope you feel like writing again soon! Carmon
