The Insecure Blogger


I seemed to have lost my perspective. My original intention in this venture was to give love -- to visit other blogs and let them know I visited, hopefully leaving a sincerely positive note responsive to the blog's content. My goal was to make others feel loved.

Somehow, I now find myself desperate for the warm comments of others -- to be the recipient of love. It's an anxious feeling I try to cope with by thundering my way through the "next blog" button leaving comments in my wake. Even though I have vigorously visited numerous blogs, the return commenting has slowed down considerably. Have I become uninteresting? Will the dearth of comments be the death of my blog?

Feeling unloved? *hug* Better?

I really appreciated your comment about my blog. It did give the ego a boost! Maybe it's the 'why' you do the blog rather than the return from the blog you need to figure out. I started mine just to unload somewhere (not for entertainment value)rather than overwhelming (and boring) my friends. My friends are great but they can only take so much. :o)
I honestly wasn't sure how to get back to your blog either.

Mrs. Joseph said...

Dear coberae -- I'm glad my visit gave you a little boost.

I liked ur gesture of leaving a comment on the blog.. although you could'nt have got what all is written in the post. One thing's for sure... ur blog would never die...

Mrs. Joseph said...

Dear deepinder singh -- you're absolutely right. No offence intended, but despite my education and experience, I was unable to follow your post.

Deepinder Singh said...

Mrs. Joseph said...

deepinder singh -- thanks for the clarification.
