Wondering about Comments...

I don't usually look at statistics as on a whole I blog for me, and if others are interested that is great, but the lack of comments has left me curious, is anyone looking at my blog?  Well they most certainly are...The last week or so my blog has averaged around 200 - 300 page views, and yet for some reason this is not reflected in the comments left, which in some ways is a good thing, could you imagine having to manage/moderate that many comments?  However it is rather discouraging to have no comments left, or very few, I think the average is about two comments at the moment...anyway I was wondering...

Are people not leaving comments because it is too difficult to with the word and number verifications? Although others have this on their blogs and don't seem to suffer from quite the same absence of comments.

Is what I write or show not worth commenting on?  I can perhaps understand this as I have found it very difficult lately to be motivated in all aspects of life and this is especially reflected in my other Balancing Kiwi blog, but I have tried with this blog to post regularly.

Have I upset people in some way?  This does worry me as some who used to comment regularly now longer do so.  I would certainly hate to think I had upset someone in some way.  

Well just my morning mutterings...as I am curious.

On another subject a New Year is approaching fast and hopefully things will pick up and I will feel less lethargic, more inspired and I can take a fresh approach, I am certainly going to be trying that is for sure.

  1. Hello Lorraine...I thought I would post you a comment,I look at your blog quite often,it is just lovely,I really enjoyed the photos of Paris very much though left no comment,so apologies for this...you are I think like myself,a sensitive soul!,not a bad thing being this way but it can make you worry so much can't it? Don't worry though,I expect Sasha fanatics have grabbed a few minutes recently to 'catch up' on Dolly stuff and quickly signed off for kitchen..Mummy..cleaning...working and other manner of duties ha ha,so,what I am trying to say is,we love you so don't you worry x
    Happy New Year,hope it is a truly wonderful one for you...

  3. I love reading your blog! I especially enjoy the stories and pictures about the dolls doing things together, and love seeing what adventures you and Henry get about! I felt embarassed reading about your debt, almost like I was a fly on the wall in your counseling session. I don't normally comment on anyone's blog, which is why I have never left a comment, but I check it daily.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment and so pleased you enjoy it.

      I'm sorry you were embarrassed by my debt post...it certainly wasn't my intention to embarrass any one except maybe myself! I originally tried to keep this blog strictly non-personal, but unfortunately, or fortunately depending on which way you look at things, I am not like that and real life does creep in sometimes. Funnily enough with that post I received quite a lot of personal emails from people saying they had 'been there and done that' and offering their support which was very much appreciated and has helped me stick to my aim...nearly there! It also provided a valuable lesson to me.

      Best wishes for the New Year :-)

  4. Before Christmas it was just the sheer rush of trying to get everything ready and done before the big day and now if it's anything like I am, we're still busy looking after (and feeding/washing/and continually tidying up) our families and giving them more of our quality time with their new gifts/presents etc.... plus also coping with the extra loads of visitors that come at this time of year....that our Sasha pursuits have had to take a back seat and it will most probably be like this for a little while longer until after the New Year celebrations and people start to get back to work and a more normal routine with more Sasha time.
    I try to visit and enjoy and comment on your blog on a daily basis but have been without an internet for the last few days so now trying to catch up inbetween times on emails, blogs etc.
    Sasha love, don't worry, all is well on your blog and a very happy New Year, from Kendal.

  5. I try to comment on your blog (and others') fairly frequently. When I don't comment it's because I would be repeating what has already been written, or I don't really have anything to add. Sometimes (not so much on your blog) I don't comment, because I feel I might be bothering the blog writer in one way or the other. I don't find it difficult to leave comments.

  7. Hi Lorraine
    I read your blog roughly every other day and always comment. I agree with other posters that just before Christmas is such a busy time that it's hard to keep up with everything. I think once the holiday period is over, your posters will come back again to visit your lovely dolls!
    Big hugs Sharon in Spain x

    1. Hi Sharon, I know you always comment, and the encouragement and friendship is much appreciated! I think you are probably correct it is a busy time for people and it is good to know that on a whole it is a problem with leaving comments, just a few have had difficulties.

  8. I don't get very many comments, either, but do have MANY visitors according to the stats page. And really, I don't mind as long as people are visiting and enjoying my little stories. In fact, I hadn't really thought about the very few comments until you mentioned them. I think I would do my blog even if no one looked at it...I print it out as a journal and really, I do it because I love it!
