This is a very awkward post for me to write.
If you are offended or put off in the post slightest by it, I sincerely apologize. But I need your help.
If you are a human being reading these very words, I am forever grateful to you. You have no idea how much I care about you, my friend, and how thankful I am that you read what I write. You an amazing person, and you will never know how much you mean to me. Thank you so much.
Unfortunately, something happened on my last post that hasn’t happened since the early days of Foodie Fiasco. That post didn’t get a single comment. Not one.
Forgive me if this sounds conceited, self-entitled, and like I’m overreacting, but the inherent lack of comments really spoke to me. I was very disappointed. Up until a month and a half ago, I was getting twenty some comments on almost every post. Now, I’m lucky if I get two or three.
Oddly enough, Foodie Fiasco’s traffic has been going up, but the amount of comments is plummeting. I am so thrilled that more and more wonderful people (like you!) are coming to check out my humble abode, but I don’t know why I’m not getting nearly as many comments.
Please be honest: I am getting boring? I’m really very sorry if I am. I value your time so much, I know how busy you are, and the least I can do is give you the best content I possibly can. Am I really getting boring?
I honestly do work very hard on each and every one of my posts, including my last one. Between recipe testing, photographing, photo editing, writing… hours go into every post. I put in my best effort to give you what you deserve: the best.
Of course, I do blog for myself too, but I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t care how many people read my blog or how many comments I get. But I think I speak for all bloggers when I say that I want to helps spread my message and content to as many people as I can. When my comments go down, I can’t help but feeling that I’m not doing something right. It feels like my content isn’t worth commenting on.
I could easily be overreacting. I probably am. And I apologize again if you think his post is out of line, or if you are put off. I am so thankful for and care about you, my friends, so much. Thank you for being there for me.
Why do you think my comments are going down? Has something like this happened to you? Do you think comments will come back? Thanks so much for your input and friendship, and I hope you have a lovely day!
