Blogs: Do you really read them?

I have a number of blogs now. One for when my bipolar goes manic and i need to talk and no ones around. And a couple that I use to promote my website or the programs I am in that I really like. Now is it that no one rates or comments or is it that no one really reads them? I am thinking of getting a counter for them if i can, just to see if they get traffic. I love writing and contributing to forums and blogs what I know what I think and what I have learned. But there is a part of me thats like "well if no one reads them why should I put in as much effort as I do to make them readable?" I tend to write in what I am told is called stream of consciousness and thats suppose to be very hard to comprehend. I guess I am just perturbed today that while going threw and keeping everything fresh and updated I still don't know if my writing is any good.

yes I do read blogs... not everyday but ... you can add a counter to your blog and don't get discouraged as people may be reading just not leaving comments... if your are using wordpress you can see how many views your blog has gotten ...it will also show you a chart to see when they were viewed... I was in a forum this morning at FAN and was reading about something simular to this and they gave some great info there about this too... quite the popular subject lately ...lol here's the link if you would like to see the forum http://www.networkersdebut.com/forum/index.php?referrerid=1205 you will learn alot about blogs and blogging here....

yeah i read my friend's blog and some blog that is interesting me. If the blog's content have a nice story or good article , i never mind to put my eyes on them. But i seldom give comment to them, because i don't like to do it. i also have my blog and active in some forum, i think the writing is not be read by others, but for the hobbies of me (writing and reading).
