A decline in my readership

June 10th, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 19 Comments

Is anyone out there? I can’t help, but feel I’ve hit a stretch in my blogging journey where I’ve lost many of my readers.

Perhaps it is because I don’t have the time to blog regularly or because I don’t regularly have the time to visit and comment on my readership’s blogs.

Believe me when I say that I feel so bad. I want you to know though that just because I didn’t (don’t always) have the time to get to your blog does not mean that I have abandoned any of you.

In fact I still think of you often.

I’m very grateful for those of you who are still here reading and commenting on my blog. I very much appreciate you for sticking by me.

As you know my family is going through some things and at this moment and I really need to be there for my daughter.

I hope everyone will understand that I do miss reading the blogs I frequently visited. Each of you know who you are and if you’re still around and plan to stick it out with me, could you delurk and say “Hello.”

I just would like to know who is here hiding behind the tree.

If you liked this post, why not buy me a coffee?

    Still here! And reading, just not posting often. Been busy building http://www.exposeyourblog.com to replace BlogExplosion which looks like died. (It is up and running now if you want to put your blog in rotation! Would love to see you there!!)

    Keep on posting, we are out here, but probably lurking like me. 🙂

    Hey, Rose – You’re stuck with me, FWIW.

    I’ve taken this philosophical attitude about the blog. As you undoubtedly know, I changed my URL in the beginning of May and experienced a drop in position for my name cf with what the placeholder was generating. Today I’m back on the first page. It makes me irrationally happy. Irrational, because as some people – possibly including you, have noted, ya gotta be blogging for yourself first. Is it working for YOU, numbers not withstanding? Are you happy to share your wisdom? I can’t answer for you, but I’m so damn opinionated, it was necessary, whether people read it or not, for me to blog.

    Roger, thanks. I knew you were here with me for the long run. I think you’re my longest running commenter. You should get a gold star. 🙂

    Hi Rose. Don’t worry your fans are still here Besides I’m two fat to hide behind a tree. I read your column religiously. (Oh there’s that pun)

    I try to comment on each one although not always. The ones who have gone will come back as soon as they know you’re blogging again.l
    Hugs and prayers for you family.

    Hi Rose.
    I’m still around too. No plans to fly the coop, though I’m spending less time online. You need to take care of more important things than your blog… life calls, right? I’m sure you probably miss the writing and blogging and eventually things will settle and you’ll find a comfortable rhythm.

    Hey Rose!
    Sorry I haven’t been by. I haven’t been doing much with my blog lately either. Been kinda busy with 4 kids and the family. I do want to get back to it just haven’t seem to fit it in.

    I do miss reading your blog and chatting back and forth. I will be around 🙂 Hope everything is ok

    People probably stepped away when you wrote the post about stopping blogging for awhile when you had to take care of your daughter. If they have readers, they’ll come back when they see you writing again. Heck, look at all the comments you got on the dog washing machine. lol

    I’m still here, just not commenting as much as usual. In fact, I haven’t really blogged in several weeks either. I think I’ve temporarily lost my will to blog. Sigh
