Think about how many blog posts and Twitter updates you look at per day. Now think of how many times you either make a comment or view a post on any of them. Not that many, right? I would like to know why.
In my fairly young journey into the web 2.0 world I have read more articles than I can count. The amount of times I have commented on other people’s blogs or responded to a question on Twitter can be counted on one hand. Maybe I am alone in this respect, but I don’t think so. Here’s an example: according to Alexa.com, Twitter.com has upwards of 150,000,000 page views per day. I am willing to assume that there are not that many posts per day.
So where are all the views coming from? People want to know what others are saying, but I think that a lot of people aren’t confident enough in their own opinions and thoughts that they are willing to share them with others. It seems to be all about confidence in yourself and your own ideas. No one will know you have great ideas until you show them to the world.
The view to comment ratio on this blog is 64.4:1 … I realize this is a young site, but isn’t that a little skewed? People must have thoughts and opinions on the topics I write about. So please, let me know what you are thinking. As a matter of fact, comment on anything you read today.
Do you think you have the answer to this question? I always love to hear your thoughts and opinions.
