Have you noticed, over the life of your blog, that sometimes very faithful readers just suddenly disappear into thin air?
Over the last nine months, a very dedicated new reader went back and began reading my blog from the very beginning. Moderating the comments for those older posts caused me to go back and read a lot of my older posts. And I found in the comments from those posts, faithful readers who I had totally forgotten about. Readers who read every post, commented every time, for months. And who were now nowhere to be found. Where had they gone? Why had they stopped reading? Had I said something to offend them? Had I stopped being funny? Or interesting? Or relevant? Had I pushed the 12-hour lipstick too hard?
I just wonder. Has this happened to you? Has this BEEN you? Where do the good readers go when they disappear from your blog?
