Dropping like flies.

I have seen much discontent in blogland as of late. It is quite sad actually. No matter where you are in life, there are always people who will make you feel left out, not wanted anymore. I don't know why this happens, it just does. I have seen comments about cliques of people who will only comment on each others blogs. It seems especially so since the convention. People feel left out because they could not attend. They feel the people who did attend will now only read and comment on each others blogs. How I wish this were not true.
Today I discovered one of my favorite people in this blog world has gone. Luckily, I discovered I can read his blog elsewhere. He had moved due to blogland discontent.
I got caught up in the race to be on the popular list. I was thrilled when I saw my face on the AWB 3 some. How stupid was I? Who cares? Just write what you want to write...If people read and comment....thanks. If not ...No biggie! I really dont know what I am trying to say here. Guess I am just venting...or BLOGGING! have a good day all!

Sam, I have been reading simmilar posts and I dont know if there is any truth in it or not. I did attend the convention but I dont think I have changed my reading or commenting routine.

I agree people should just write what they want thats the way I do it, if people comment fine if not fine.

Thank You for Your Time and Attention

Write what you want, whenever you want. This is YOUR place.

You know what's funny? The people who have just recently started their blogs really like it when the experienced bloggers respond to them. Give them a try sometime.

Good to see you again, by the way.

Let me drive. I like the view

You're doing exactly what you are supposed to with a blog - let your thoughts and feelings out - so no need to apologize.
Can I tell you a little secret? I always like it as well when your picture comes up on the 3 some - It's a great pic!(and I'm sure that you have heard that many, many times)
And as for what Clevis is saying is so very true for myself. I was very pleased to see that some of the people whose blogs I had been reading for months had commented on mine when I finally got it going.
There are still some of us happy folk here so keep blogging!

expatbrit...how was the convention? Hope you had a great time!

Cleavis...I do look at new blogs all of the time. How else are you going to find interesting things to read? LOL

a poetman....thanks!

smackyman.....glad you like the pic. I have been complimented and propositioned because of it many times! Have often thought of changing it, thought perhaps it was too explicit....some people like just regular pics. But I can't seem to find one that I like better either! and thanks for reminding me to look at your blog again!

What blog is he on? Is it faster to update? I've always been happy being one on the outside looking in here.

Cliques... a social oddity right? I think it has something to do with our genetic history... being packing animals (from waaaay back when) and the behavior just kind of stuck. It's ok though. It's natural for small groups of people to come together, though I agree that it can be disquieting when one feels excluded.

We're part of a clique though right? Hope so!

Sometimes AdultFriendFinder reminds me of high school ...

cliques, popularity, condescension, drama

I guess we never realy work through our unresolved issues and I can't imaging BLOGLAND will be any different

Dont worry, be happy ....... (wish I could sing)

Some people may say this person is in an AdultFriendFinder clique, or that person...but in the end it doesn't necessarily matter, only the attitude of the individual blooger.

I personally don't care whether I'm considered in the "in" crowd of commentors or not.

I simply read who I want, comment when I want, and write when I want.

Sure, I always like to receive comments, and especially from people I regularly read as well as new visitors...but I'm really in it for a kind of "literary exhibitionsim/voyeurism" of it all...

Of course, the "visual exhibitism" is pretty sweet too!
