I realize I’m not here as often as some of you are and have not been an active contributor of late.  But I get the feeling that my presence here is no longer welcome.  I always believe I have something relevant to say but I noticed that my blog posts and community posts rarely get read anymore.

I believe we all have something to contribute to this site but if I have worn out my welcome, I will step aside and fade into the distance.

Thank you for allowing me to have my say—-and please don’t patronize me with “We love you” because that, to me, would be an insincere reaction.

    • Beverly, If I had felt like this I would have left a time ago. Some of my blogs maybe get one reply.  

      The dashboard and home move quickly and constantly. Sometimes the blogs go down fast.

      I honestly do not think it is personal at all.

      I have looked for your contests and have not seen a post for that in a while.

      I am sorry you feel this way.

    • Beverly, I’m not a big one to throw out the random “I Love you’s,” anyway estatic but I’m sorry you‘re feeling this way. I do not think you’ve worn out your welcome, I’ve never seen you post anything that was negative.

    • No!! Gosh just the other day I sent you a message asking how you were feeling. I have never forgotten your blog about heart failure. I hope you decide otherwise, Bev.

    • I’m sorry to hear that you feel like that. Why do you think that is, because it is a funny feeling when people don’t respond to your blogs, but I’m sure they are reading them.  I read alot on here but I don’t respond all the time, but I guess I should at least acknowledge that I’ve read them huh?  

      I think you may have opened my eyes to something, thanks....please don’t leave.

    • Ditto to MZtracy....I am here mostly for me...not others. You know ...it‘a all about ME!! LOL...no really I have become very fond of some of my new friends and concerned of their well being. ANyway....the beauty of this site is come and go as you please.  I have some special connections with some ladies and others just passing connections.  The blogs, questions and postings do move fast and if you miss a couple of days...you can spend hours catching up.  If I have the time...I will, otherwise, I just start off where I left off.  No pressure....equals real beauty of online relationships.  We have enough pressure day to day.  Please keep in touch...don’t take that no one responded personally...and go on.  Just think...you can’t respond to everyone of your online friends posts..can you? It okay.  Have fun and keep in touch when you need a friend or a pick me up.  You know...if I need a laugh...I can alway count on reading a post from chinadoll...and I am laughing.  If I need some advise... I can alway count on daphne,ingrid or lori to pipe in..and the list can go on....If I need some shock therapy...there is always beachbum!!!  I get out 20 times what I put in!  Thanks to you all!

    • I just thought of something else. Sometimes my blogs are only on the front page for a short time. There are very few responses. But when I go to my dashboard and look at my blogs it shows me how many views they had.

    • Dear Bev,

      Don’t know why you‘re feeling this way today but you have to know that you‘re not alone, just before I read your blog I was feeling as though my words would go unheard and consequently get no response so I convinced myself that I had nothing to write about. Please don’t fret too long because it’s obvious that your presence has been missed.

      love Donna

    • There is a new member who has posted a number of blogs boom boom boom, and most had no reply because they spun thru the cycle too quickly. I only noticed them when I clicked on the “view more” link in the blog header column.

    • Teeky: Didn’t you ask once before on what makes us view the blogs, etc?  There are a lot of answers on that one.

    • You know, sometimes it could be our hormones, too.  I feel there are days I am more sensitive than others.  I am glad you have brought this to our attention.  I think we all try and somehow, someday, someone, something fall thru the cracks.

    • No,no, no! You are more than welcome here! I know what you mean, sometimes my blogs, and even posts illicit no response. Sometimes I revive them to give them a second chance.  

      Don’t give up, continue to let your voice be heard. And thanks for being brave enough to let us know how you feel!

But trust me we all sometimes feel over looked at some point on this site but its a big place and many join daily we have lots of room and love to share with all we welcome you as well as anything you have to contribute, so I hope we‘re reaching you with sincere comments wanting you to know we want you here.

    • Honey,

      I’m sorry you feel this way.
      I think a lot of this is too do with the layout and we automatically press dashboard and the last commented blog hits the top ... its not anyone ignoring you and people just follow a particular route.

      Do stay honey - I’ve been away for a few days and I’m trying to catch up and read everything - somedays it’s liek there are a mass of voices chattering and others just a few.

      I look at it as calling in my favorite coffee shop and somedays it’s full and the bar is packed and others quite and you just nod to the regulars ...

    • I am pretty new here, and I have noticed that things move quickly...there are times I have seen a post and wanted to comment, but by the time I can, it has cycled through and I have to go find it. happy

      Seconding onevision’s comment, I will try to look for you!

    • I’m with mztracy...If I felt like that I’d have been gone a long time too...My posts don’t get a whole lot of ‘action’ at times too...and to be honest there are blogs that I might read but can’t find the words to say...(I do try to support everyone in what they have to say though)..Just sometimes..I’m all out of words...

      Someone (I think it was teeky) wrote a blog about this a few months ago...The question was something like, why is it that some blogs get a lot of responses while other’s don’t?. And I found that to be a very good question.

    • Hi Bev:

      This is one of the reasons why blogs sometimes are missed..this blog was posted on Thursday, I haven’t been on the site probably since Tuesday, if someone had not responded to this today, i would had never seen this.  I have posted and got one or no reply, but like the others said, I moved on.  It really isn’t personal, I try to respond to all as much as I can, but unfortunately, I am unable to.

      I hope you will decide to stay...as for your christmas contest, it is possible that I might have seen it, but since I don’t celebrate christmas, I would have definitely pass over it...happyhappy

    • I agree with the bunch....I’ve posted stuff that has gotten lost and others that has attracted attention. I have been gone for last 2-3 days so haven’t been a contributor or poster....just have to jump right back into the pool when you get back.

    • Beverly ...many times I have had posts and/or blogs get buried in the days events and not get responded to. It happens. I will never forget the day you sprang into action for me when Fab40 was not on line and I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t get on. Please do not leave. I am not patronizing you, I really like you! I hope you reconsider!
      Have a great weekend!
