I visit to see if you've posted anything new. Perhaps notifying your facebook group(s) when you've done so would help understand the sites traffic patterns.
I rarely look at anything other than your blog page, so I guess I start at your homepage then follow the link.
On occasion your writing poses a question or stimulates thoughts but most of the time it is a peek into your world as you reflect upon it. Often there is nothing to be said other than 'I read this' which feels silly to write as a comment... I imagine it is more comfortable to remain anonymous than to publicly admit that "i have nothing to say other than I was here". I know this is true for me most times.
I wonder if including a directive with your entries would help... for example, what have you done when that happened to you? or, Could you tell me how you might have handled this differently? or, Can you tell me about a time when you felt this way? or, How do you find or bring balance to your community?
A very quick review of articles I found on the web suggests 0.5% of your page view count in comments is very good... one comment for every 200 views. Perhaps that might add some perspective.
I appreciate your feedback Amalilly. I used to notify everyone when I posted blogs, but that was before I added a comment section on here.
I don't add new pictures a lot... but I do try to write a blog a few times a month. Maybe if I did it more regularly.
Asking questions of my readers did not work in the past, but maybe it will now. Thanks for the reminder!
By the way, just saying "I read this" is better than nothing!
