Blogs Helping?

Hi everyone,
I've been thinking lately about how effective these blogs are for making connections on the site. Well, as far as my profile views/winks/emails are going, the answer would be not at all.

I'm being realistic about this though, the odds of a woman looking at my blog who just happens to be within my cupid distance is pretty slim. Scotland's a pretty small place after all. (also max 20 women online within my distance max)

Just wondering how you fellow bloggers feel. Have you recieved more emails/views as a result of people viewing your blogs?

This isn't counting comments, which are always appreciated of course!

Before you panic/celebrate this does not mean i'm going to give up blogging

I can't say I have made any local connections from the blog, and frankly I doubt I will - for me this is a place to express myself in ways I would never dream of doing on a regular "blog" site. This is me without worries of being judged - most (not all) people never completely reveal themselves on their blogs on other sites.

I have however ended up exchanging mail/messages with a couple of people that chances are would never have replied to a message from me if they had not had a chance to know me a little better by my blog. As a guy I'll take any extra help I can get.

a lot of people that send me email will comment about my blog but i don't write about anything all that great anways. i don't think is has effected my profile view/winks/or emails though.

Lots more views and notice but almost all from out of my area... and many from overseas.

I figure it isn't a bad pursuit though while I look and wait.

Oh... and by the way... anyone who rocks is alright!

My experience is pretty much the same as rockwriter58's. I have gotten winks and tons of views since I began blogging. I figure my blog is somewhere I can direct people who are interested in finding out more about me. So when I respond to a woman's profile on here I tell her just where to go!
