Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that most of the blogs in the past week or two have zero comments? Why is that? Is it because there is now a "like" button to use (FB rip-off) and it's easier to like than to comment? Duh......yes it is. But here's the point. No comments. No interaction. It seems that the only posts that get a lot of comments are the very controversial posts that "raise-up" the blood-pressure because they hit hot buttons in most of us. And I love a great "hot topic". I think most of us do.
No comments might equate to what's being posted is just plain dull and boring and none of us really care about it. Or if you "sort of" care about it, you just "like it" instead and then move on? A lot of the blog content of late is either dull..........boring.........basic....repetitive.......blah, blah, blah. You get the point. Or worse........they are cryptic advertising for someones firm/company/etc.
Here's the challenge. Remove your ego before you write a blog and post it. Ask yourself.........Is this really, really great information? Is it interesting? Is it a little controversial, but educational and meaningful? If you can do that before you hit the "post" button, maybe, just maybe you'll get comments rather than a like. I'm sure I'll get neither from this post, but that's not the point. It's been bugging me for a couple of weeks and I had to bring it forward. I'm not coming here much lately because it's becoming a snoozer. Let's make this site content "hot" again. Jerry and Sandra aren't the only ones who can write a great post. There's gotta be more of you out there. Right?
