One thing I find quite intriguing is how some blogs have a multitude of comments while others have close to none. Could it be the lack of quality that determines the desert of comments or perhaps its uninteresting topics? Could it be that the language was not rich or expressive enough? This led me on an investigative tour of some of the most visited blogs of Second Life residents. Much to my surprise, it was neither difficult nor time-consuming to conclude that the answer was in the type of blog. Anything remotely literary, writing and language-related has no comments. On the other hand, any blog with posts about Linden Lab’s or Second Life’s perplexing conundrums has a ton of reactions, even if graphically/content-wise they are of, let’s say, average quality. So people do have things to say after all! Yet, it is still intriguing how people who are usually so opinionated have nothing to say about the written word in an experimental or non-experimental context of creative writing. In that type of blogs, I often feel tempted to comment on every single post that does not have a comment, to be honest. Then I have a shyness attack and decide against it as it could be perceived as… blog stalking! So, if you see my name on comments all over a blog, it’s out of solidarity for its author, ok?
