Closing Time???

I used to write in my journal daily ...

then I moved into my own place and couldn't afford Internet ...

then I was having problems with my PC working when it wanted to ..

then I had to fix my alerts ...

so needless to say after all that (it took about 8 or 9 months) ..

I LOST about 90% of my readers ...

I used to write here because I felt inspired and important ...

however (call my self-centered if ya want) I don't get much feedback anymore ...

So I have thought about this long and hard ...

maybe it is time to say goodbye to my journals ...

move on and write in a REAL paper journal ..

at least then I won't be expecting feedback ..

I just feel like I sit here and type my life away for no reason!

I do understand that you all have important lives (unlike me) ....

but out of all the readers on my list I feel I should be given more feedback then I do receive!

I still read close to 30 journals ...

I comment in just about every entry in just about everybody's journal ...

yes there are times I don't ...

I am at a lost of words ..

I understand that happens to all of us ...

but when I sit here and pour my heart out to all of you and I get no comments, that hurts my feelings ....

so call me greedy if ya want ...

I don't care ...

I wish everyone the best!!!

Hey there!  I know how you feel sweetie,  but I want you to know that even though I might not comment all the time I do love you.  I was having computer problems myself.  Kinda got out of the habit of writing in my journal.  And then I was overwhelmed by so many journals to read.  I will try to be better from now on. Ok?  Hugs Barbara

hey girl, I know how u feel, I feel the same way. I was never one who got loads comments, but then it got to where I barely got 1 or 2....and yeah it hurts....and I've thought about just stopping writing in here....I even started a little private journal of my own....and was thinking of just writing in that one...but there have been people to say to me that they still read and want me to stay...so I will tell you like you told me....well, Im sure these were not ur exact words...but I love your journal and I read all the time, please dont leave...id miss u if u did.

Girl you know I busy I am sometimes and how sometimes when I am online, the kids are into things & I can't stay on or we are doing something online together. I'll try to be more attentive to your alerts & read them ASAP when I can. SORRY and I LOVE YOU!

I feel bad because I don't update my blog all the time and you may not get loads of comments, but the ones that you do get help put things in perspective, unlike a paper journal. I use both, why not try that?

Hey there girl~  I am here, now!  I read your journal all the time, but my AOL mail was messed up until like 2 days ago.  I had so many alerts and email it was ridiculous!  I know how you feel, I get less comments than you do and it does suck, that is why I haven't been back to my journal either.  I have a papre journal and my online one, try that.  Please don't leave, I would have my butterfly T. withdrawals.  :)  I wouldn't know what to do!!!  
Love ya, Vicky
