Not Getting Comments

April 29, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hi All,

First, I know you are out there.  I have been consistently posting on my blog for close to a year and am seeing about 500 or more hits every week.  I realize that doesn't break any records or WOW bloggers with much larger followings.  However, I know I have some readers from my numbers.  What doesn't make sense is I have not seen even one comment.  So, my first thought was "where are my readers?"  Surely, I have written something you liked or even disagreed with that warranted a comment or two.   I then asked my provider if there was something on my website possibly blocking comments, but was assured that all was set up correctly.  As of this writing, I have over 6,700 hits across 77 blog posts, so in true Pink Floyd style "Is there anybody out there?"

Here are my top five blog posts:
Photography Game - From A to Z

Out with a purpose

How Yorkies do Portraits


Birds of Indiana

While writing this blog I decided to do a quick test comment and it worked easily.  You have to leave an email, but only I will see it.  I am too small to sell any emails nor do I have a desire to.  I tried to shut the email required feature off, but that is not an option.  So, if you want, use your "throwaway" email address that is fine.

So, here is my ask of you:  Leave me some comments, I would love to get some feedback on new ideas or thoughts on my posts.

This blog was going to be my thoughts as a photographer, but the topic of comments was on my mind and I went with it.  If you want to connect with me you can find me in several ways.

I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
