I’ve noticed my posts seem to kill the comments and conversation. Sorry about that. I realize this is really part of the gig of the bigger megaphone, and maybe blogging about stuff people don’t want to comment on. Or that they find boring. Or that are too long. Or that are posted on days when people don’t want to read. Or something… Hmmm…
I’m not complaining per se, except I find myself surprised a little at missing the community I had on my pseudonymous blog. I felt supported there. Not so much here yet. I thought about what I would risk in my career by blogging as me — I hadn’t really thought about what I would lose in terms of my support structure.
This isn’t an invitation for the trolls to come out, by the way, and tell me how to just suck it up and cope, that I should stop whining and be a big girl. Develop a thick skin and all that.
Instead, it’s just an acknowledgement of an observation I’ve had, and a plea to please keep reading as I work out how to be in this new virtual space, talking to and with different people than I am used to. Thanks.
