cause i have long had a sneaking suspicion that most of you are drawn to other people's drama. i don't think that you thrive off of it, necessarily, but i have found that the blogs that draw the most comments, constantly have a bunch of crap going on in their lives. and i don't mean happy crap. i mean, awful, who the hell wants to live through that, kind of crap.
so i started to wonder if people who read blogs, are drawn to that type of stuff? does my blog suck because i rarely have serious drama to blog about *knock on wood*?? have my comments completely lapsed because i don't tend to have bad things happen to or around me? *knocks on wood again*
or maybe it's because i don't play into the "blog about a cause" or "play nicely with other bloggers every friday" type of shit. i'm just not into that kind of stuff. i don't want to nominate other bloggers for their nice posts. but don't get me wrong, i do read them. i totally get that people are trying to create more of a community in our community of blogs. i know that it comes from a good place. but i just am totally not into it. i don't want to have to do that to get readers. i don't want to play games to have people read my blog. in my opinion, it's not genuine. well it wouldn't be for me.
i don't know. maybe it's because readers tend to come out of the woodwork when you have drama, because that's when you need them the most as a blogger? they offer support and words of encouragement- and i guess if nothing dramatic is going on, readers don't think you need them. but you see, even when i blog about chasing boyfriend with tampons, i still like to know y'all are there. i guess i don't "need" you perse, but in a way, i do.
i realize that part of this is totally hypocritical, cause i do the same exact thing. i read and don't comment. i guess i'm just trying to figure out why the drama is so damn enticing to others? or maybe it's not about that at all. maybe it's like i already said; it's not the drama, it's who the drama is happening too.
