Blogger's Lament

[hope this doesn't create two comments; blogger ate my first attempt]

That photo is completely hysterical--yet sad.

As to the title, are we talking about you?

It struck me the same way, Jason. It also hit a nerve, but not about this blog. I don't post consistently enough to attract any traffic, so it doesn't surprise me that friends (3D and virtual) rarely stop by these days, and very few visitors are not friends. (Even I forget to check to see if anyone has commented!)

It seems to me that most bloggers want traffic like Instapundit but will never get it, thus the title.

(FWIW, my gay-bashing post generated over 5,000 hits within a couple of days when linked by some popular site, and still gets a few dozen a day, but fewer than a dozen looked at any other page.)

Ah, yes. We all can't be blogging superstars, especially those of us who don't want to put up 25 posts a day.
