No comment

Has anyone else noticed that no one comments on blogs anymore?  Or is it just me?  Maybe I'm the only one that's noticed, or maybe no one comments on my blog anymore.  I don't know.  Perhaps it's a combination of all of those things.


Whatever it is, I think it's a thing.  I know that my blog content hasn't really changed.  I mean it has over the years as I've explored more about fashion and my interests, but I think it's mostly remained steady.  I still share aspects of my life.  I still write about my kiddos.  Maybe not quite so intimately as I used to when they were babies, but I don't think it's because my blog is different, but more because who we are is different.  I'd like to think that I keep it real on here.  Do I?


 I mean, I do get comments.  Here and there I get one or two.  And, I get a few comments on Facebook where I share the posts.  And, I really am flattered when I get comments from people in real life about my blog content.  I know I have readers and I'm thankful for them.


 Maybe we're just too busy to stop and leave comments on blogs these days.  As I look at my own commenting behaviour, I think I comment less on blogs now than I used to.  I still try to leave them here and there, but not with the same verbosity as before.  Have we evolved into keeping up with each other and connecting via likes and shares?  Are we moving away from text and thoughts altogether and really just looking at images?  Why does it even matter if someone comments on a post or likes a picture?  Am I the only one who really cares?


I know some would say that these thoughts are trivial and why am I even dedicating a whole post to my pondering over this matter, but those are probably the same people who lament our whole social media age and frown upon selfies and selfie sticks.  So be it. Comments show engagement (I learned this at a social media workshop I did with my fellow Style by Asia bloggers).  And, I suppose what I wonder these days is this...if we look and like, and even share, are we really engaged?  Communicating via blogs is perhaps less personal and probably too public for people to want to put their response out there. Let's face it, people can be harshly judgemental in the comments section, right?  But comments and response are really just ways that we can feel heard.  And don't we all want that?

Sorry for all the rambling.  I've been thinking about these things for a while.  Maybe I should be glad people aren't commenting because they might point out that my dress and my handbag are too close to the same color and look bad together or how much I need a haircut (I've had one now).  Oh well.

I posted the same question a few weeks ago - it definitely is the way social media has changed. It's easier to "like" than to comment. And you don't want to sound repetitive hahahaha like "ohhhh gorgeous" or "cute". Also some people need to realise that word verification KILLS comments!

I always look forward to your posts. Each are special, inspiring, and very authentic sounding! I definitely also think your photos have improved so much throughout the years, as well as your modeling :)
