What's it going to take....

...for people to add me to their watched blog list and leave comments? More sex? Fewer questions like this one? (LO

I've already figured out the day-to-day stuff doesn't generate much traffic - doesn't mean I won't post it if that's what I feel like talking about that day though - but I expected more of some of my recent posts.

I've decided that I have a goal (everyone needs a goal, don't they?)... I want to crack the most popular male blog list. Only 150+ comments to go, so give me hand -- thanks Keith, Mary, and the others I've met here that are reading often and leaving comments. I like knowing that someone is really reading the stuff out of the 100+ views I get on many of my entries.

If you're reading this entry and haven't looked at my other entries, please do. Hopefully you'll find at least a couple posts that compel you to comment or add me to your watched blogs. I'm not above begging, but I'm not quite there yet.

Ok, I'll help out. I check out your blog occasionally - good stuff. My blog is mostly philisophical. I like to facilitate exchanges of ideas that members might find interesting. I get lots of looks, but few comments so far. Good luck, John.

Good luck with your goal. (And your other goal too!)

I think you have good material here. Even if I'm not posting a comment, I'm reading. I try not to post unless I think I can add to the conversation or exchange.

I'm actually not sure that the best blogs are the ones with the most comments nor the ones that are most watched (isn't one of those a blog with nothing in it?).

So take some credit from your peer/fan base... what you have is really good right now.

Thanks Huny, John and Rock. Appreciate the feedback.

Hope to keep things up to your satisfaction.

Agreed, all. Weblogs have only been available a short time, yes? Like what you have - It'll pick up, fear not...

That is right Frnds.

Also, you have already discovered the key to unlock your goal. It is visiting the blogs of others and regularly leaving comments. It is a community now for many of us.

Plus, what rockwriter has said is also true. My blog has almost 250 comments at this point and it has never been on that list. That tells me I have at least something going that folks are interested in.

I don't understand what's happening with your blog Keith. Besides the issue with you not making the top list... I added you to my watch list but you just don't show up on my page. You do show as watched when I read your blog though. You must really have pissed someone off.

We've all got that problem with Keith's blog.
