Talking to yourself

puppy has been writing in this journal now for a little over a month, but with little to no feedback, it’s hard sometimes to know that what he’s saying is getting through to the right one.  Sure, for a little while there was a lot of spam coming through, as one entry was found by someone and used as a link for spammers to try to get their advertisements pushed out somewhere…though in a space like this it wouldn’t mean a whole lot, but spammers don’t care about that.

For the most part, it feels like puppy is talking to himself.  Yes, there’s one comment from his Miss, but that was something that puppy posted himself.  So there’s been virtually no commentary from anyone.  So again it seems like an internal conversation that puppy is carrying on with himself.  A little like the probes that have been sent out by NASA.  The Voyager 1 & 2 probes have been traveling since 1977, and haven’t been transmitting data for the last couple of years, since there’s not sufficient power on board to send anything, not to mention since they’re long past transiting any planetary body, there’s not much to phone home about.  Still, they’re moving along at a good clip, and carry on board information so that anyone (or anything) that finds them can understand where they came from, and what life was like on the little blue orb that they originated from.

Sometimes it’s like being in an echo chamber.  Knowing that the message is getting out, but not sure what sort of impact it’s having.  Kind of like that.

  1. I don’t see a ‘like’ button – perhaps if you had one you might get feed back in that manner?
    I went for a while with my blog getting not visible views either but anything found in the ‘reader’ can be accessed that way by bloggers and doesn’t show in your view count! Perhaps there are more people reading than you realize 😀

    1. Been looking for a ‘Like’ button on WordPress but it doesn’t seem to be easily available in the settings. There are plugins that can add one, but would rather do something a little more ‘in-house’ if that makes sense. Certainly there’s been a really large uptick in page views today, not really sure why, could be your readers are coming over and having a look-see. Still doing some tweaking on this blog, so things will change as time goes on. boy has never been one to leave things be…he’s always tinkering.

      1. Try going into your ‘dashboard’ and then to ‘settings’, there are a variety of things you can set and change for your posts and blog – perhaps you will find what you are looking for!
        Good Luck 🙂

        1. Found a plugin that worked fairly easily. Haven’t found anything that will easily allow someone to reblog, that’s the next step…amongst others.

  2. My precious boy I hear you loud and clear! I also read every one of your post. As you know we had some technical difficulties but my boy (smart buger that one is, so proud!) Fixed the bugs. So rest assured my boy I do hear you.
