If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

What Do Comments On a Blog and Sheep Have in Common?

May 7th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Sheep in a PastureYou might not think that there is a lot in common between sheep that graze in a pasture and comments left on a blog, but you would be wrong.  Or am I just be catty because I have hardly any comments on my blog?  Actually, I prefer to think of myself as observant instead, but that’s just me!

I visit other people’s blogs, some really good ones that have been around for a longtime and I’m amazed by how few people leave comments.  I’ve read somewhere that if one person in one hundred leaves a comment, then you’re doing very well.  Still No CommentsThe interesting thing that I’ve noted is; the more people leave comments, the more people want to add their two cents worth as well!  And that’s where the sheep come in!

If one sheep follows another before long you have all the sheep following along.  People are somewhat the same.  Are People Like Sheep?A good example is the blog, Stuff White People Like.  When they started their blog in January of this year, they got one comment in the first month, then a second comment one month later.  Then in March Oprah mentioned their blog on her show, (How or why, I don’t know, but I would love to find out!) and the following day millions of people were coming to read all about stuff white people like. 

As for the comments, well they now run in the hundreds and thousands!  My question is, who goes all the way down to read the 1438 comment at the bottom of a page?  No one!  But does that stop people from adding on what already has been said over and over.  Nope!  If everyone else is commenting, they have to follow suit.  Little LambAs for my blog, I’m just biding my time, I know eventually people will start commenting, or at least I hope they will!

Maya Muses:  Am I calling people sheep, you ask?  Well, think about it, there’s a lot of worse names than that to be called!  Afterall, sheep were once little lambs and they are nice passive animals.

    Thanks Tina, and all the best in Madrid. It’s a great city (a little too hot in the summertime when I lived there) but the beaches of Spain were wonderful! Compared to the weather in London, though, you probably aren’t complaining!
