When you have doubts that no one is looking or that people don't see what you write it's time to get out into the traffic and take a closer look. Yes, there are books written about proper blogging etiquette. Readers may even send you private messages advising that you're supposed to do this or do that when comments are received on your posts. There will always be those that need conformity and structure to disseminate the world around them in an orderly and meaningful way. When you disrupt the status quo there's always the possibility of becoming an outsider.
There are just about the same number of AR members as there are writing styles here and that's what makes this platform interesting. We all know the "cut & paste" commentators and posters and would be hard pressed to click through the fodder let alone view it.
Could you imagine writing 3,000 posts and never getting a comment? It could happen. Some "writers" are getting close to that goal. When you're here write about what you enjoy in a fashion that satisfies YOU. It's YOUR blog to approach from any angle you wish. If it doesn't feed your senses then it likely won't suppress the appetite of others either. Nonetheless, it remains YOURS.
More important than comments in my perspective are the views, clicks and short URLs you generate. Comments aside, on posts where none have been received, I find interest. While watching the "Traffic (Stats)" on my zero comment posts they have exceeded 4,000+ views, 500+ clicks and 20+ short URL creations. These numbers aren't dramatic to many of the other fabulous BLOGGERS here but know that your message is being seen, felt and communicated to others whether commented on or not.
You never know where your PAPARAZZO may lurk, however, all you need is one to complete your sale!
