Taken For Granted? | Bloggie Thought

If I read people’s posts regularly and comment, will I be taken for granted? 

It is definitely a thought I have from time to time. But there are multiple ways to combat this thought.

People get busy. Just because I do not see the same person that tends to comment on my posts, something may have happened on their end. This certainly happens to me. I get a few days behind on someone’s posts to, yes, sometimes, a month or so.

People lose interest. Maybe my posts just are not their thing anymore. That’s okay.

I am being taken for granted. Oddly enough, I have noticed when I’ve stopped commenting on some blogs for some of the reasons I just listed…that’s when people start commenting again on my blogs. It happens, and it shows a selfish motive.

But it is a reminder to me, am I being selfish with how I comment? Is gain in the back of my mind, at any time? 

Humility, kindness, and encouragement go so deeper than self-gain. I want this to be my goal. So when I comment on someone’s post, I do not want it to be cloaked with “hidden gain” I want to support someone and be engaging in discussion.

That’s my thought for today.

  1. I agree with this post, T.R.! I don’t have this inner conflict for I know life can get busy on my end, or I may be unwell and I can only catch up with a few blogs, but I’ll always make the time no matter how many days or weeks or even months have passed to catch up with all of the blogs that I follow.

  2. That is a very good observation! You bring to light a latent subject that we feel but cannot put into words. I think people don’t comment a lot because of busy-ness or maybe they don’t know what to say. It certainly takes time to comment and there is the fear that other people will read those comments. For me, I just like to comment to say “hi” and to show my support!

    1. 🙂 yes!!! I know people who have shared they haven’t commented out of shyness or as you said, fear. It does take time too and I think people are concerned about not having the “perfect” words. I want to write a post on the encouragement of why we should comment, especially for people who are concerned about how others will internalize what they say. You are right, comments are a way to show support 🙂

  3. You seem to be upset with the blogging community lately. I am sorry to be hearing these things. At the same time, I say this because I resonate with a lot of your statements and, personally, have pulled away from blogging these past couple months because of an awry of circumstances, as you so caringly know. 🙂 I love your compassion and I hope you know I do try to look through the posts I have missed whenever I get on the site. Blessings! Xoxo

    1. Oh, I’m not :).

      Now, this month in particular I have had some challenges but I’m not upset at the community. Instead, I want to discuss these things because I know I’m not alone. I think it is important we discuss things bloggers may experience. Not a lot of people do. And I want to open those doors.

      But by no means am I upset at the community. 🙂

      1. No worries about the misunderstanding!! 🙂 I’m so glad these posts are helpful!! I actually have a post tomorrow explaining why I talk about the negative side of blogging and that I have horrible timing lol on talking about multiple negative parts of blogging in a row. I try to make those posts all positive with a productive way to go against the negativity be it thoughts or actions. However, being the topic may be negative I want to plan other topics in between. 🙂

  4. I agree with you. I do think mostly people get busy and blogging can be pretty overwhelming at times. When I don’t see comments from others, I generally chalk it up to busy-ness because with writing posts and keeping up with a growing audience, one could blog full-time… and most blog on the side of everything else they do. But as you say, dear TR, there are some who comment simply to receive comments and that’s a shame. 😔 They are missing out on this beautiful blogging community. I think perhaps that as your audience grows larger, the more of that sort of thing you see. Perhaps, that is what is occuring now? Your blog has become so successful that now there are people who follow for selfish reasons… hoping that your attention will bring them success. Dunno for sure, but it seems probable. One thing is sure: you are an amazing blogger!! I always find your posts interesting and encouraging!! Love you, dear TR!! Keep on keeping on!! You inspire us all!! 🤗🤗❤️❤️

    1. Thank you so much, Lynn!! Oh, I definitely get those comments and that’s ok, it is part of the process. I’ve been wanting to expose/discuss my weakness. Many people I have used to see blog have stopped blogging or stopped commenting for one reason or another, and I miss them but I understand we cant be everywhere at once. They can’t and I can’t. Which is when when I occasionally these thoughts I have to be focused on the truth of what matters. Often times, when I struggle with something it has been an opportunity to write and share with others. I know people enjoy posts on blogging and thought it may help to be completely honest with myself and others. 🙂 I’m grateful I’m not alone and sad at the same time others relate, but that we can share and grow together.
