We are in a quandary, and need your input on something. Lately, we’ve noticed a distinct drop-off in comments whenever something of “substance” is posted. The other day, I posted a lengthy piece on the Ground Zero controversy, and last week, a piece on Mel Gibson’s rants. Joy posted recently about a child abuse case, and before that, about children being afraid of the dark. With the exception of the child abuse case, most of our more serious posts rarely get any comments. But when we put up a post, like I did last week, about the contents of our purses? The board is burnt up!
We choose many of these pieces, not just because we feel passionately about them, but because we think you all might want to discuss them – in a place where we’ve all sworn to be nice to each other. We’ve had plenty of spirited debate on here in the past, and we’ve all stayed civil, and we’ve remained friends, no matter how passionately we disagree.
So now we come to this… we really need and want your input! We know that you’re coming around… we watch the stats, and can see that we’re getting plenty of hits each day. But if you don’t comment, we don’t know what you like or don’t like. Like I said, we truly like a good debate. To be honest with you, we even like reading the comments when you agree with us but offer a different perspective. But it gets very frustrating when we get little or no feedback either way.
So the question is this: what do YOU want? Yes, this blog is for our own entertainment – we like to write, so we do. But it’s more fun when we’re interacting. So what do you like to interact over? Fluff? The “tell us about your day” stuff (although that can only go for one or two posts a week, after that, it just becomes Facebook)? Or should we continue to post the thought-provoking stuff… and expect you to comment back to us?
Thanks for the input.
