Peeve

Know what I hate? When you write what you think is this really thoughtful or funny or insightful comment or message board message and then go back later to see what incredible conversation you've started only to find that no one cared. That's really a blow to the old ego; there are only so many times you can say to yourself, "Well, it was so great no one can think of anything to add!" It's depressing. (As you should have figured out by now, I need constant validation and ego-stroking.)

We add nothing out of fear of paling beside your dazzling brilliance.

At least, that's what I tell myself when no one comments on MY blog.

I know exactly what you mean. And sometimes the stupidist little posting can generate loads of responses!

It’s like when you write this really great blog post and assume that everyone will want to comment on it because it is so well written and thought provoking. And you get one comment.

And the next day you throw something together on the fly before rushing out the door for work, and you get fifteen comments.

People are dumb.
