Am I the only one that likes finding obscure blogs? When I come across a blog that already has 1200 followers or 25 comments on every post I get a little turned off. Of course there are some exceptions. But as a general rule for me I like finding great new blogs. I don't know why this is.
I am the same way with following people on Twitter. The only people I follow on Twitter with thousands of followers are people like Oprah. I'm also this way with discussion forums - unless it's something I feel I MUST respond to I'm generally not interested om replying to something that others have already responded to a million times. I have no clue why this is. All I know is that's the way I am.
Perhaps a part of me wants to know I'll be noticed and my follow will be appreciated. Maybe I want to know my tweets and comments will actually be read. That's not so bad is it??
Am I hurting myself in the long run? Can this be bad practice for my own blog? Am I the only one who likes "discovering" amazing blogs?

i like discovering obscure blogs too, but sometimes it can be too time consuming....

Yeah...my blog is fairly new too. On my best days I've had up to 35 hits. Most days I still only get b/w 5
and 12. Rarely a comment. I think people just don't want to take the time to comment....not that they don't want to respond. Hang in there!

LOL. I am the same way. I feel like if a person has 200 comments will they actually have time to even glance at what I have to say, or to care? I am a fairly new blog (when I started I imported posts from my old blogger account to my new domain name - so I do have some content) I have 8 followers on facebook networked blogs and five via my feed. Of those... I am lucky to get ONE comment. I am trying ending my posts with ?'s but ppl still seem not to want to comment on what I have to say...oh well, at least I'll have my blog some day when I'm 80 to look back on, much as my grandmother had a trunk of old photos.

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure that I don't…
