Thinking About Quitting My Blog

I am getting very few views here, and replies are rare, so I am thinking I should stop posting blogs here. When I blog on my Facebook page there are many "likes" and many replies, and some shares. That is where I should place ALL of my blogs. Does anyone disagree with my quitting blogger? I would like to hear from you.

  1. I do always read your blog in my reader. I think you should write wherever you feel comfortable and wherever you get the feedback you desire. Blogging for comments and/or page views will always leave us disappointed but blogging to connect with the diabetes community can be done anywhere. :)

  3. You know Richard, I do not think it is just necessarily here, but my experience it is everywhere. People that I have found, will read and not post. I am not sure why. I get the same reaction from posting my pictures. I have been told I should sell them, but when there is no reply then what? I agree with Sara write when you feel like it. I am clueless at the lack of responses sometimes. I think with Facebook it has us brainwashed to click the like button, than to really open up and have a good, intelligent conversation about a subject.

  4. Thanks, Joanna. blog to inform people about things and to teach, but I also want to have a conversation going. I have learned many things from the conversation on my Facebook page. That is where I will post from now on.

  5. My theory is that there are now so many diabetes blogs out there, people just don't have time to comment on all of them anymore. So comments and traffic may be down because there are so many blogs to read that we can't always keep up. And in my mind, that's a great thing!! I still like blogs because I feel like they are easier for someone new to the DOC to find - if I Google for something diabetes related I'm more likely to end up reading a blog post than some stranger's Facebook page. However, if you feel personally that your time is better spent on Facebook, then that is what you should do. I guess my point is there is no one right way to share, just the act of sharing is the important thing!
