Hello hello hello?

I've realized that there's a bit of a feedback loop going. I feel like the number of people still readng this journal has declined in the last year or two, and that's made me less inclined to devote energy to putting together essays to post. This, of course, makes people less inclined to keep an eye out for my writing.

On the other hand, there's another explanation: maybe the little stuff I've posted has just been less interesting than I thought, and's that's why it hasn't provoked much in the way of comments.

So: Let me know. Are you still reading here? Is there a forum you like better? Should I be posting on Google+ or my own website instead? Or also? Don't be shy.

You can never tell what will set people off on a discussion.

My most discussed post on LJ was about ketchup! While when I do a very important video interview on the Chocolate Cult I barely get anything.

It is very annoying but as with teaching I've tried to realize that it isn't really about me, it's about those reading or the students. I can't control what goes on inside of them and since I'm grading anyone on my LJ I can't even use a stick to generate comments.
