Opinions Please........

I need everyones opinion. Even those that lurk. 

What makes you come back to visit ?

Why don't you leave a comment ?

Is my site boring ?

Is my site exciting ?

Do I post about the same thing over and over again ?

Is it one of the first blog you think about when you go visiting ?

I know I am opening myself up for harsh remarks etc....., But I really want to know. I have been considering stopping my blog for lack of interest. By that I mean my numbers have dropped off so drastically.  So let me know.

I love your blog. I have you on my blogroll so I can see daily if you have posted anything new. Before bloglines, I would only check on my faves once a week/month or so. I know many people are going to "readers" and some of them have a button at the bottom where you can comment right from the "reader". Others you have to actually go to the blog and I am guessing that is why some bloggers readership has dwindled. If they read your posts through a "reader", it will not show up on your tracker doohickey.

I do not post on my blog on a regular basis, but I no longer stress about it either. I have cyber friends that expect weekly updates, but I go with what I am feeling.

Take a hiatus and see where it leads you. Maybe you need to break and it could refuel your blogging energy.

Glenda, I really like your blog. I always find your posts interesting and I hope you don't quit altogether but maybe just take a hiatus if you need to.

Oh please don't stop.....
I too love comments but my blog is really just an online journal.
I always visit you and I love that you ALWAYS comment back.

I feel as if..you are a dear friend.
You share a lot with us and I find you very interesting. I have only about 5 people who are my constant blog friends....meaning~they always visit and always comment. You are on that list.

I get a lot of traffic but not everyone chats. I really don't mind....I love comments but I do not even really try to MAKE my blog interest others.....it's sort of all about me.

like the other blogger said..you might need a break....this can be very time consuming. Whatever you decide....I am with you:)

Hi Glenda, I know you said you saw a difference in people who visit when you were dropped from my blogroll by mistake. I've put my blogroll on a different page so viewers must click to get to it. Do you think that made a difference? Because if it did, I will add them back on my main page. I've been thinking about doing that anyway.

Don't give up! If you look back in my archive you will see that I didn't get very many comments and then all of a sudden it changed!

I like your blog so I don't want to see you quit!

Joyce said...

Glenda - I truly hope you do not quit. I always look at your blog. Yours is one of my favorites. You always have interesting things to say. I remember when I first started doing this, I came across Rue's blog. She posted about some people getting so many visits and comments and others barely getting any. Amazing how since then, she gets a ton of comments. I haven't figured out the secret, but that's okay. I enjoy blogging and I would truly miss your blog if you did not do it any more.

Well you just can't pull your Many Fond Memories woman...who will I pick at. Life has no guarantees so blame it on the economy...Don't take it personally.
I agree with Sophee-a-laroo:
"I love comments but I do not even really try to MAKE my blog interest others.....it's sort of all about me".
Don't throw in the towel, you'll be missed.

I just found your blog and I think it's neat. Just because people don't comment doesn't mean they aren't reading and enjoying your blog. But I know what you mean, it's way nicer when they do comment.
I started my blog mainly for myself as a way of chronicling my life and in that sense it doesn't really matter if anyone comments.
I like your blog and I'll be back.
Cheers, Laura

Hi Glenda,

I have had those questions myself.

I love your blog. I usually go down my list which is alphabetical. Sometimes I start at the bottom and sometimes the top. With so much going on it is difficult to post daily and usually to visit blogs in one shot. I thought initially I would but that soon became very unrealistic.

Don't be thinking about going anywhere. You would be greatly missed.


Angie said...

Hi Glenda,

I wanted to pop over and say 'hi' and thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I really love it when there is a comment from someone whose blog I have never seen! I have now discovered your blog..and I found it very interesting and visually very pretty to look at....I will visit again..and please feel free to stop in and visit me again!


Suzy said...

Hi Glenda,

it would be a pity to stop your blog. I know how you feel, because I wake up in the morning eagerly wondering how many comments I will find. The same questions come up and I often wonder if it has something to do with my English and being from a different country and culture, maybe people find it hard to understand what I am writing about. But then I always remember that I started my blog for myself and never ever thought that anyone will want to leave a comment.
I can't give you an answer why are people not posting comments but I can tell you that you are making a nice place here.

Never give up! Suzy

roy nelson said...

seems a nice blog.
tis my first visit.

love+light to you+yours


Please don't stop blogging. I enjoy your posts. I visit, but don't always leave a comment, is that bad??!!I blog because I can do all the TALKING :) It does take time to read all the ones that I visit and maybe that has something to do with people not commenting.
Maybe take a couple days off..but I hope and really want you to continue. Big Hug!!

I can't remember all of your questions...Please don't stop blogging :)

Glenda, I really like your blog.
I'm new to this wonderful world of blogging, I don't have my own blog yet, but I enjoy your postings very much find them very interesting. Please don't quit! Yours is one of my favorite blogs.

Hugs from Florida.

I just found your blog for the first time today. Clicked on your name when I saw you commented on someone else's blog. I was pleasantly surprised to see some of your favorite places are in my area. I live in Sonoma County and you are a few months older than me. I will be 52 in December. Nice to meet you. I am going to add you to my list of blogs to follow.

Blanca said...

Definitely NOT boring at all. I love all your craftiness and all your thrifty finds. Keep on trucking or should I say blogging.

Something White said...

Hello Glenda, I just found your site through vosgesparis.blogspot and I´m glad to meet you! So many times I asked my readers to leave at least a little message so that I could find their blogs as well, but just a few people answered to my question, though I can see in my (invisible) site-stats (statcounter.com) who is passing LOL :D
I must admit that I´m often a silent reader as well and I don´t leave everywhere some comments. But I know that people appreciate my bla-bla, since they always come back. I think you´re in the same situation: you´ve a nice and interesting blog, but other bloggers don´t write anything here... Never mind; just continue and embellish the world!! :)
Love and greetings, Marjolijn

Rue said...

Hi Glenda :)

I really enjoy visiting you, but as Joyce said I have so many blogs to comment back on, it takes a while for me to get over here. I'm very thankful that anyone even wants to read my hoopla, but I've never understood it. Maybe you just need a break sweetie :)

Don't quite because I really will miss you.


A-M said...

Glenda, I like your blog as it is you. You share a piece of yourself with every post. You appreciate your life and the pretty things in it. I feel like I am getting to know you and not just pretty pictures. I like impersonal design blogs for ideas but I like yours for fellowship. I work down my blog roll once a week as it is getting very big! It is difficult to find time to comment on all of them. I most often comment on those who have spoken to me to show my appreciation for their comments. I am sure you have many 'lurkers' who thoroughly enjoy your blog. I am one of them! A-M xx

Magnolia Street Style said...

Don't stop. I enjoy your blog and visit as often as I can. I don't always leave a comment due to lack of time. I took a little break myself and it helped me. You'll find what is best for you.


Joanne Kennedy said...

Are you crazy! You can not stop posting! I look forward to coming here as often as I can. You are one of my favorite blogs and I would miss you way to much!

Please stay!


Ambrea @ Come Home Cottage said...

Hi Glenda! I'm liking this blog! I think the thing that keeps people coming back is new posts that are loaded with goodies-photos photos and then a few more photos.
(Yes I do need to practice what I preach!)

Love the cheeky scarecrow!
