Are You There, SCWW?

I struggle each time I have to write one of these blogs. I spend days or sometimes just hours wondering what I should write about. Then I finally settle on a topic and I sit down and compose something. Later I re-read, rewrite, re-read, rewrite, etc.

And then it’s posting day. I drop the words onto the site and sit back and wait for the comments.

The comments never come. No, never.

Then I start quizzing friends and fellow board members: Did you read my post? Was it any good? I struggle with the same unspoken fear of all writers: Is anyone out there who wants to read what I have written?

It makes me wonder: Are you out there, SCWW? Do you read our blog?

Take a moment today, leave a comment. Tell us what you want to read about on the blog, or even in the Quill. Your comment could just be “HI.”

This is your SCWW and we can’t do any of this without you.

So, talk to us, SCWW. What’s on your mind?

    True, true, so very true. We have to have member involvement if we are to be the workshop we should be.

    I hope there is some response from SCWW members…or anyone who reads this blog.

    Sorry to hear no one is commenting. I’m guilty of lurking and not commenting myself. But since you mentioned it, I’m changing my MO! Great post Kia!!

  4. Robin Olson says:

    When I blog I get so discouraged by the lack of responses that I quit. Then sits my blog with no words for months…hmm, maybe I lack patience!!!

    Another guilty lurker, checking in. Symptomatic of the digital age, I think. We read, we nod or shake our heads, and don’t take the time to leave our two cents worth.

    I’m here listening… er, reading your blogs, Kia. It’s just that you’re so thorough, I have no questions or anything to add. You’re that good. 🙂

  7. admin says:

    Mark, you always make me feel better. I’m that good because of friends like you.

    JM, I agree wholeheartedly, I find that I lurk on some blogs as well. I’m making a vow not to do that anymore.

    Robin, patience is the hardest thing to learn. As you can see, I feel your pain.

  8. I, too, deserve 30 lashes with the feathered quill. Always enjoy the posts here, promise to make time to let the author know-thanks for the nudge we all need, Kia.

    Oh, absolutely I read this. Wonderful content.

  10. I read your blog and my attention was drawn by the words “I struggle each time I have to write one of these blogs.” I was thinking the same thing since I was asked by Ginny to contribute a blog. I figured I check out to see what folks right about and the words caught my eye. Short and simple. 🙂

    I know exactly what you mean, Kia. I write notes to our line dancers and very seldom receive a reply; although, they do usually comment about the note face-to face.
