You may remember how I previously mentioned I am a huge advocate of Supernanny and her Naughty Spot technique. In recent months it is even working supremely (not to mention frequently) well with Eli. I find it really gets the point across with my kids, both simply and effectively. Plus Eli has outgrown the stage where he would loudly mock cry and attempt to sit on Thomas the whole time he was on the naughty spot. Which Thomas clearly didn't really appreciate at all (though I did find it quietly hilarious).
So this leads me to the point of my post today. The nice people at Sitemeter recently sent me an email saying my blog had attracted 1700 visitors in the few months that I have been blogging. Obviously for a second I felt so incredibly special. Then reality sadly kicked in. If my blog has had 1700 visits then why oh why has it only had 182 comments? (Yes, I did count all of them specifically to reinforce my point and it was worth every single mundane second!)
Now I am happy to consider the point that sometimes people check my blog only to find it hasn't been updated recently, hence no new posts to comment on. But seeming as I generally blog thrice weekly or so I'll divide the 1700 visits by the 7 days in a week and multiply by 3 (I know I am a maths genius!) to determine that 728 times whenever someone checked my blog they would have been greeted by a brand new somewhat spectacular post.
I am not considering that what you read on my blog didn't deserve comment, that is not even possible. Especially considering I generally neglect keeping my house clean to update my blog (which I hasten to add is a very small sacrifice).
Commenting by the way could not be easier:
- You don't need a Google/Blogger Account,
- You can simply choose the name option and input your actual name,
- Or else you can do what Rob does and leave anonymous comments and claim it wasn't you,
- You don't even have to be someone I know, frankly I am more than happy for anyone to read and comment about my endless ramblings on life. (BTW I know you're out there because those nice Sitemeter peeps let me know location and pages visited of every single person who visits my humble blog!)
I am putting you on the naughty spot.
I am even dispensing with Supernanny's preferred manner of providing a warning to allow people a chance to change their behaviour. She says when behaviour is serious enough to warrant it skip the warning and get straight to the discipline. You have to be cruel to be kind after all you see.
(In a stern tone) You people haven't been commenting on my blog like you should and it is simply just not acceptable behaviour. Now you can sit there for x minutes (x being a minute for every year of your life, so for some of you that's a really LOOOOONG time).
So there you have it, while you're on the naughty spot thinking about what you have done (or failed to do in this instance) I am going on strike! No more blogging for me until previously mentioned behaviour is fully rectified!
I need apologies, hugs and kisses people! Then I'll happily forgive and blog on.
But until then 'Au Revoir' while I go cry into my pillow about not feeling the love.
