A Couple Issues and a Request.

First off, I've noticed that each day for the past week, I've lost one follower a day. What is up with that? It's quite worrying as I don't see what I'm doing wrong! I love knowing I have readers and the main way I figure how many of you there are is through followers, so please, if you read, FOLLOW. Also, I noticed that I'm only getting one person per a post who comments. That is so generous of her but where are the rest of you? If I am essentially talking to myself than I'm going to get pretty lonely :(.
Next, the request, I'm on a planning committee for the eating disorder awareness week (NEDAW) at my school. I'm trying to come up with polish names that encourage a thinner body type, so far I've got Essie 'Rock Star Skinny' (this polish is Essie, right?) and $OPI 'Iris I was Thinner'. Now, I know some/most of you all may not think that this is a big deal, you are entitled to that belief, however, I think that any product that encourages weight loss for cosmetic reasons marketed towards a young-ish crowd isn't right. Please, whether you support this or not, brain storm ideas for me. Thank you!

  1. I don't have any polish names for you.
    But I wanted to let you know that I do read =P and I am here although I am too busy with work to comment everyday. Sometimes it is hard to follow up on comments on my own blog.
    Just hang in there, and blog because you love it!

    I can't wear skinny jeans, for sure.

  3. I read sweety but don't always have time to comment on the 300+ blogs I follow.

    Seriously from experiance, blog for your love of blogging and don't count how many readers you have but look at how many views. I'm sure people are reading. I have about 5-30 comments per day but my page veiws are 10 times that. Some people just don't like to comment or are shy and some there is a language barrier.

    So hugs and just have fun!

  5. Try adding statistics to your blog. You'll be able to view your hit counts and have an idea of which posts are the most popular. You may want to do some research to see which statistics site would be best for your needs. A quick google search on "blog statistics" brought many options.

  6. I can't think of any polish names for you, sorry. I do want to say that I think that it is great to bring awareness to eating disorders, they are a lot more serious than the general public thinks they are.

  7. I read your blog on Google reader because I don't have time to visit all the blogs I read but I read every post. You are not talking to yourself!
    BTW my folowers seem to go up and down by one or 2 everyday. May be just a glitch?

  13. I'm not a follower but yes I read your blog. I think there is so many many awesome blogs nowadays(compared to how many there were a year ago or at least what I knew a year ago) that it is taking more and more time for everyone to try to keep up reading them all. And the language barrier - yes that's true. Writing comments in foreign language takes time. So many blogs, so little time :-)
