If your blog gets no comments, or only a few from time to time, I know how that feels. Go back a little while to my January 2006 blog archives, and look at all those zeroes. Now, after reading a few of the posts, I can see why. I know what I was doing wrong. But it doesn’t help at the time. Zeroes hurt.
It’s hard to keep writing when you feel like no one’s watching, or that they’re not engaged. There are lots of blogs that deserve much more attention. There are plenty of podcasts that have only a few dozen listeners or viewers that deserve more.
Keep trying. Persist. Try new things. Experiment. Comment elsewhere to build relationships. And don’t give up. Blogging is more fun when there are comments, but your ideas are still just as valuable just being out there.
