Comments

Just so you know, I'm not frustrated with any one person about this. I've not received very many comments lately. I can understand that it's sometimes difficult to come up with something to respond with. So, I'm not asking people to comment more (though, I encourage you to if you want to). I only want to see what kinds of things everyone is more likely to respond to. This is not, by any means, going to change what I put in my journal. The only purpose of this is so that I can have a realistic view of what kind of response to expect when I post any given entry.

I've created the poll below as an attempt to base my expectations on reality. Please vote, as it will help me greatly. Thanks.

I think that oftentimes when someone posts something that is more of a personal self-musing it poses difficult comment with something worthwhile. If what is posted is a complete thought, of sorts, then at least I feel like it would be unnecessary to add a "good work" or "nice" or whatever affirmative sentiment. When its something that is lighter in nature but still personal, it opens up more of a dialogue. Memes and the like are sort of pointless if they're the generator types because of the same reason that there is little to add- though some of the more thoughtful survey-ish ones are more likely to provoke responses.

My main hope has been that people would comment with their ideas, interpretations, or concepts that relate to what I journal about. Personally, I find simple affirmations a bit empty if they're not followed with something more substantial.

Basically, I do understand what you're saying and it does make sense. This is pretty much a perspective excercise for me, moreso than getting people to comment on my journal.

I've been a lousy commenter in the past weeks. I do apologize. My head has been too full of too many things to try to create cogent responses to many postings. I am working to rectify this in, not only your posts, but those of others.
