Why Do You Not Care?

Why do I write posts that seem to die when submitted to the host?

Why do I get so few comments and likes?

Sometimes I write posts that seems to be clear. In my mind they are, I hope, organized and dear. And in some respects, maybe even persuasive. But only a small group, I fear, will find them valuable enough to really read and maybe dare to care.

So how do I write something that is considered valuable to somebody? And what person, group, or whatever, should I target. The wisest of the wise; the lost and oh so lonely; the Wisenheimers like me; the forgotten phonies; or people who publish recipes about pizza, meatballs and macaroni with gusto and cheer.

Did you read this?

Was it clear, organized, or maybe even persuasive in some little way? Was it any or none in the above tier? Or just totally none of the above and/or of little value I mostly fear?

So! On the 8th of this December, I will be 79 in years: with ever diminishing health and dementia so-so near.

Should I give up; up chuck; just sit on my ass on the couch watching TV; pet my dog; stroke whatever and/or drink near beer?

Please let me know.

I won’t get upset!

I won’t upchuck!

But I may drink

Some Ever So Near Beer!

In Elon Musk and Google We Do Trust!

But Not Zuckerberg I Do Fear!

      Yes! Thanks!

      I should target people who like to smile and avoid those that married the same type who was a mean loser in the end.

  3. Sorry, but I Data is way too friendly to do something like demanding someone else things haha 😀

    Wow, you’re 79? I’ll be 36 in December 😁 Sorry, I got nothing to say about your questions because I believe that the best way to get the readers you like is simply write and share what you love. Pizza recipe or just some random things. I read anything, but I select what I share to what I love writing the most, mostly poems and stories (and 70s, 80s and 90s music) and I try not to focus on those who don’t bother to read what I share and simply appreciate those who care. So far though, I have no problem reading your post.

      So far? Lol

      I’ll just have to try harder.
      The post just came out of nowhere and was completed in less than an hour.

      And it probably shows.

      1. Yep. So far. I haven’t checked your post before I followed you, so the ones I’ve read are those after following you, so I’m judging those I’ve read. I don’t know what you should try harder, but your post is pretty clear to me. Light and easy read 🙂
