A lone voice in a vast woods

I don't know why it should be, but I sometimes find it distressing that so few people read my blog.

I knew that this would likely be the case coming into this. With all the blogs in the world, why should mine be anything more than a drop in the sea. Still, I wonder if it self-indulgent for me to desire that people other than a few of my friends read what nonsense I choose to spout. Who cares what one single avatar out of 8,000,000, almost 100,000 of them not being alts, has to say?

Vanity? A quest for validation? A desire to share ideas that I think are occassionally important?

And what about the part of me that wants to hide in my cybernetic navil. There is security in annonymity. The less people who know about you, the less the chance of criticism being in my way flung.

Ah well. I don't know. For whatever reason, I'm going to try to increase my blog's readership. How I will do this, I don't have a clue. But it is a goal. I'll figure out a way.

I wish you would write more.
I read yours religiously even though we don't talk much.
I love reading your blog and Mykyl's, even Princess and Catherines whenever possible.
Sometimes I am sad and wish you guys wrote more.
Or that Alpha had blog but she doesn't.
The only blogs that really matter to me our my friends blogs.

By the way not many read my blog either but I have had few strangers find my blog and want to be friends.
I don't really write for popularity, I write for myself and to share with friends.

:) How many people can say though that a Queene reads their blog?

Well, some of your readers merely lurk and enjoy, not commenting . . .
