it’s always like this

Filed under: perfect strangers — notsojenny @ 8:52 am

so i’ve realized that not too many people read this blog.  it goes in spurts and ever since it became super wedding-centric the traffic has definitely gone down hill (it also happened when i removed it from search engines).

this really means nothing to me.  of course everyone who posts to a public blog wants to feel like they’re writing for someone’s eyes other than their own, otherwise we’d use paper journals.  but in reality i’ve already gone through my “should i keep doing this” crisis.  okay, crisis is a TOTAL over exaggeration, it was really just a fleeting question to myself.  it happened when it seemed like even my 4 regulars weren’t even reading.  but it really does all coincide with so many people jumping the blogging ship.  it’s lost it’s luster a little.  plus so many people i started off reading had been doing it for so many years by the time i started mine that they were all kinda over it and dropped their blogs (some i miss dearly!). 

why bring this up?  well i’ve made a couple of decisions based on the above info…

1) i’m sick of having to create new pictures and edit out all my personal info just to be able to share something i’m excited about.  it takes so much away from all the hard work we’ve put into everything to make it look nice.  so going forward i’m probably not going to do that… it’ll just be private, for those people who i feel are not crazy internet nutjobs who will track me down.  don’t hesitate to ask for passwords, but also don’t be offended if i decline when your personal info is suspicious : )

2) i’ve been working really hard to create posts to cover the time i’m gone for my wedding and honeymoon.  i recently canned all of these, they’ll be posted at other times.  as much as i hate to be on hiatus for a while i also know that people never feel compelled to comment when they know people are not really around.  and really, a post without comments “is like a night without stars, come, hahahaha”  okay, i don’t know where that came from, but you know what i mean, they always feel so unfulfilling like no one read or cared about anything you just said.  so i’ll be gone for a bit but i promise i’ll be back with plenty to talk about (ie. wedding recaps, how fantastic HI is, and moving drama i’m sure) so don’t take me off your google reader when i go dark in a few weeks  : )

3) i think that’s it, this list just seemed kinda sad with only 2 points so here’s where i’ll commence babbling.



~ today i learned…



  1. I’m really glad you’re not leaving! I would be sad. :( I always read, trust me. And I promise I won’t track you down. ;)

  2. Nothing wrong with any of this. Seeing as how I just decided to come back you know I don’t have a problem with any breaks you feel you need to take :)

    Plus I’m super excited to see unedited wedding details :)

  4. I think many of us read blogs on blog readers, which probably mean the stats indicate lower readers than you actually have :-)

  5. you know, I’ve started feeling the same blog ambivalence recently. It’s definitely not something I’m planning to give up … it’s just not the priority it used to be. I started mine up when I was in a really different place, and I needed it for different reasons.

    I get the same sad feeling re: comments, especially when posts I think are ridiculous get everyone talking and ones I really care about get, like, one. After two days. But I just remember that I’m writing for me, and it doesn’t matter, and all that. I don’t really know where I’m going with any of this anymore, but yeah. I’m seriously excited for your unedited details!
