I wonder if I am just very uninteresting.

What is the point of keeping an online journal if nobody ever comments on your actual posts? I mean, sure, they reply to comments you make to their posts, but no comments inspired by something you wrote in your own.

Maybe it's because I don't talk about sex. Or because I'm almost 22 and I think I have a lot of things figured out, and everybody else looks at me as this little kid who really doesn't know anything.

Maybe it's because I don't have a webcam. So there's no pictures.

Maybe I'm intimidating in my writing. Or damn impressive.

Maybe I'm not as eclectic as I think.

Maybe I'm too eclectic, and nobody can relate to me at all.

Maybe I'm too ego-centric and I turn people off.

Maybe I'm too blunt and honest and most people just aren't ready to deal with it.

Maybe I'm full of shit.

Well?

Hey, I like reading your journal.... BUT, if you so must have posts in your journal... tip: write about all the stuff you've gone through throughout the day perhaps? Don't dwell on little teeny stuff. Say, dude I listening to so and so (band) or something. Actually I have no idea what the heck I'm talking about.... keep your journal how you want it, therfore your journal=YOUR journal!!! roc on!

I don't need comments. I just wonder I guess what good it does to bother online journaling if nobody seems to care what I have to say. Does that make any sense?

To be perfectly honest, I am less interested in journals that do simply talk about the day's events, and that is the same reason I try to avoid doing that in mine whenever possible. I try to write things that I find out of the ordinary, intriguing, or just weird, in hopes of stimulating thoughts and discussions. Most of the time I fail.

Do people actually care what goes on in my day? That's a good question that I pose to readers of my journal. It seems like the kind of thing that attracts people to watch "reality TV" since it's more or less voyeurism into another person's life.

I am self-conscious. And I want to feel apprciated in more aspects of life than my fucking job. That is the crux of this dilemma.

But thanks for your input. :)

Re:

Well, in saying all of that, I guess my journal sucks. I never know what to write when I open up the program. I always say to myself, "how should I start this entry out?" or something.. and just write what comes to mind, mixed stuff. Intriguing thoughts, days events, future events, things that have been on my mind.

that's a good thing. your journal doesn't suck. nobody's journal can suck. it's what a person is. some might find it subjectively less interesting than others, and vice versa.

perhaps i am making a bigger deal out of this than is necessary.

taken under advisement. we will pass this on to a committee and see if they can do some market research and opinion polls to get the root of this.
