So…again…I probably shouldn’t post this, and if I do I might delete it afterwards but this blog has always been about keeping it real. I started this thing two years ago last June because it seemed like a good idea. It would give me a way to write about what I’m going through in real time, maybe get some feedback. It worked, I think maybe it worked a little too well.
Right off the bat, old friends were encouraging and I met some new friends. I was never happy with the lack of comments but I know people are busy, and to be honest I don’t always comment on your blog either.
But the views have been good. I steadily get about 30-50 views a day.
Now even that seems to be drying up. Most of the views I get these days are for tattoo fails, if it wasn’t for that one post it would be dismal indeed.
I started doing the random movie reviews because it was fun, but those hardly get any comments. When I called for somebody to write a guest review for me the silence was deafening. I’ve been thinking maybe my loyal readers and commenters have felt betrayed by me because I’m not writing from my heart anymore, but when I do write and post something from my heart like yesterday I get nothing.
I’m not saying this to make anybody feel guilty. God knows everybody’s busy trying to keep all the plates spinning in their own lives. But I’m just beginning to wonder if this blog has filled its purpose, and nobody (including me) needs it anymore.
Maybe it has become a distraction for me. Maybe I spend too much time on it that I should be spending on getting my shit together and getting my ass back to California.
Maybe I need to take a break.
Anyway, it would be good to get some honest feedback from those of you who do subscribe to the blog or check it out regularly about what you think? What’s going on for you from the reader’s perspective? Should I keep doing it? Should I take a break for a while? Do you hate the movie reviews?
Please write a comment, because right now a blank comment section seems like a vote of no confidence.

Don’t worry about hurting my feelings, I’ll get over it and I really need your feedback.
