When I started to blog, gradually the number of my followers grew. It is an exciting process, especially if one is new to the blogging world. But the thing that I learned to value the most, as most of the others here in this world, were the comments. They give real meaning to our writing.
As my following grew the number of comments also grew. But a not so surprising phenomenon also occurred at this time. I say not so surprising as I heard other bloggers write about it. As the number of likes increased, the people commenting on my post did not grow in the same proportion. In fact, the new people who followed seldom comment.
The bloggers who comment on my posts remain almost the same. They are the ones who are supportive and genuinely interested in my writing.
But what about the rest?
Why are these new friends so silent and hesitant to share their opinions?
I know that this is not just my issue but I would love to know where these 1600-1700 people are who follow my blog. Why do they bother following the blog if they neither like nor comment on my posts? And lastly, why would they want to follow without interacting?
The maximum number of likes I have ever gotten on any of my posts is still less than a hundred.
Who will solve this mystery?
Can anyone enlighten me!
