...I'm thinking of declaring this blog "closed." Since I've been on Facebook and now Twitter, the number of postings here has gone way down--since October I've done less than 10, and this will be my first and probably only entry for the entire month of January..
The reason for that is simply that on "social media," you (or at least I) get more response. Even if it's only a "Like" a "retweet" or "follow," you get more interaction, even reinforcement. And honestly, that's one of the things I'm most looking for online--not the feeling that I'm just sending things out into the ether to sink like stones.
This seems to have become merely a place to display my Wish List, link to Sinfest, and note when people mysteriously find the blog by searching my name.
So why am I telling you all this? At the risk of feeling too abject, I'm telling you all this to ask: Does anyone really care? Seriously--is anybody still reading this anymore--more to the point, anyone who isn't friends with me on Facebook and/or following me on Twitter, and would not care to do either?
Because I'm small-r-romantic enough to think that the idea of online communication is communication. And I honestly don't know if I'm communicating with anybody anymore here.
This is a very serious request for feedback. Please let me know if you want this blog to continue--or even if you just want to know where to find me on Facebook or Twitter (to which the answer will be, follow the links in the first paragraph of this entry).
My fate is in your hands--or at least, how I spend a few hours each evening. Look forward to hearing from you.
