I'm currently struggling to attract people to respond to my music posts. I can hardly be bothered to write about music when interaction/feedback is minimal.
I'm wondering whether I should discontinue music posts and just write album reviews for myself on Rate Your Music. Isn't worth the effort posting contents on a blog if the audience isn't there. Sorry if I'm playing the "hard done by" card. I just feel a little disheartened by the time I put into the posts and the lack of response. It's frustrating there are millions of music fans online yet I feel I'm unable to reach them.
Perhaps my content just isn't unique or personal enough, who knows. I can see there are lots of music bloggers who comment on each others blogs, many on wordpress, but I can't seem to get hardly any to swing by these parts, even though I've been on blogspot since 2010, and visited plenty of music sites. It’s been said blogging is ”dying” even if I think there is proof that it isn't dead.
Of course, it isn't only me, me, me, and my comment section that matters. 😊 Reading other music blogs is fun and educational, regardless if they comment back on my site or not.
To sum up, I’d like to increase the number of commenters. I can't force others to comment though.
Any suggestions? Do wordpress users avoid blogspot? Which friendly music bloggers should I seek out so as to expand my network?
