I don't mean to sound like a whiny little bitch, but...  
I feel this is something a LOT of people who post stuff on LJ, or anywhere else, may feel as well.

When it comes to my artwork, I have counters on the pieces on my site, so I see how many times people look at images on there. The same goes for images in the gallery updates I post here. As for my fanmixes, I can also see how many people downloaded them.

The last few walls I have done have gotten an average of five to ten comments on them.  They have been viewed nearly a hundred times.  My fanmixes rarely get any comments and the one with the lowest amount of downloads has seventy four downloads.  As for the gallery, I sometimes get one or two comments, but I feel people viewing those photos and screencaps hundreds of times.

All I ask is if you download a fanmix or take a look at my gallery updates or artwork, please leave a comment, either on my site or on my LJ. Again, I don't mean to sound whiny, but it's something that not only encourages me, but in the case of the gallery updates, keeps me going. I take a lot of time to get those and do screencapping and that is for all of you guys.

Thanks so much.

*hugs tight* Sorry, I didn't comment when I took two pictures of Kristen Bell, from now on I will though. Really, really sorry. I do appreciate it, it takes time and patience to keep a site up like you do.

Thank you, that's nice to hear that you appreciate the time and effort. That's all I really ask for. :) And I love your icon! :)

I am happy to have you on LJ again so that I can comment when checking your arts. =)

But I hear you about the lack of comments, I know that sometimes it can really bug me to see (for example) 50 ish members on my vidding community, and so few comments. >.>

Oh, I remember the lack of video comments too. And those things take SO much work.

OH yes I get that so much sweetie!!! I only get a few comments in my community and which sucks because I do good on my icons and everything it's just getting it out there and doing it countlessly is not my thing to post icons every day but I do it when I feel like it and it's hard not getting tons of comments. It feels like you shouldn't be doing this because of that and I get more comments in the art site than I do on the community and my journal when I did it that way...but I'm still hoping to get more people to comment and I've been wondering how to do that because some community's that do just art for just there stuff get's hundreds of comments and I only get 10 or less.... *hugs* love ya sweets. I love that you keep the site up you put great stuff in it like I said before. :)

To be honest, I'm not going to comment every time I take a scan or a cap from somewhere, be it here or elsewhere. It's cool that it's available, and obviously I appreciate things that I use, but to me, the comments aren't just going to happen.

On the other hand, I would rather comment on people's journals in terms of actual stuff that's happening in their lives. And to actually get "personal" (and no, I don't actually mean it badly, I don't care to be honest) but I'll say it anyway- I comment on your journal a bit. Not heaps, but from time to time, when you talk about your family and stuff like that- but I don't get a lot of comments back. (I don't comment on yours to get comments, so that's cool.) Now, it could be that you're not *that* interested in my life- and my life is not *that* exciting, so I do understand!!! -but comments do go both ways, so ask yourself, are you commenting everywhere that you could be commenting?

So yeah, my point? (And I swear, I have one!) I'm not going to comment on every art/gallery post. Because I don't have time and I don't care to make time. But, if you've got a personal thing going on, I'll take the time to give a damn. :)

You're actually one of those people that I consider like an actual Internet friend because you do comment on those personal posts. I do appreciate those way more than the other non-personal ones, for obvious reasons. As far as me not commenting back, I do my best to comment back. Sometimes I find it really strange on personal ones because they'll be times when everyone is saying the same thing but in different words, so I just feel weird repeating myself on the thank yous. I feel like it means nothing at that point. But in regards to that, know that I seriously appreciate those posts. :)

I feel so ashamed to be one of those people because I always encounter the same problem with my fanvids, arts, fics, etc. I've been so busy lately, but I will try to remember to just leave a quick note!
Lady Mansonladymanson on September 9th, 2010 12:52 am (UTC)
Oh, no need to be ashamed! :) You've commented on a lot of my stuff in the past, so I certainly don't consider you to be one of those people. :)

Don't feel bad. I think I've received maybe 3 comments in 2 years on my website. People just don't leave feedback very much. :(
