But after doing it for so long, I'm beginning to wonder (yet again) if there is any point in writing this blog, as I get very few comments about my posts or photos. I know from the counter stats that real people do visit my pages and not just web bots indexing my posts so that Google will find them. On a few rare occasions there has been a massive influx of readers, usually when I've cross-posted somewhere and told them I've got photos. But even then, few leave comments.
It's not surprising therefore that I have turned to Facebook and Flickr to get some positive reinforcement that someone, somewhere does actually appreciate what I do, even though I only really do it for myself. Perhaps it is far easier to comment on these social media sites rather than a blog, I don't know, but I certainly get a better response and consequently spend most of my time there.
I suppose I will keep doing it as it will last long after I have gone and maybe then even my wife and children will take some interest in reading it. They certainly don't at present as it's like pulling teeth trying to show them my photos or tell them where I've been.
Just my two penn'orth but I don't suppose anybody will read it.
