Notice! This blog is no longer updated as such, and the new spot to point your feedreaders and blurry eyes are https://shelter.nu/blog/

This also means no more comments here, and especially not you spammers, you filthy floatsam of the internet!

A whinge

I write and write at this blog, giving hours to it, hours of thought and hours of doing stuff. It ends up here on my blog. But lately I've had the ratio of 5 comments / 10 lines (where two comments was by me!) to 15 entries / 4500 words. This not good. It either means that my readers don't have anything sensible to say, or I'm writing tripe. Which one is it?

I started blogging because I wanted to share and communicate. I created a comments system to extend this because I wanted comments and feedback. I may end up cutting dramatically back on the length, quality and effort I feel I've put into it, because, believe it or not, it is a very tiring thing to do, as writing is concentration and hard work. Is it all tripe, then? Is it all uninteresting? ( ... and yes, I expect some comments on this )

Yes, this blog has the worth I give it. No need to tell me to stop it if I hate it. I don't hate it; in fact, I enjoy it very much. That's not the issue. The issue is that I need feedback. Simple as that, because, without feedback, I'm writing for no one. I'm not one of those who feel they have to write for themselves, because my head is an enclosed enclave of eculous eucarism, quite capable of sorting itself out without public venting. It's just that I want to share. But am I?
