I feel like an explanation is in order


I’ve been thinking about (and feeling guilty about) the fact I follow so many blogs, but rarely comment on anyone’s blog posts anymore.

It makes me feel bad too, because I don’t want any of you to think I don’t care about what you write or am not reading your posts. I am (when I can).

When I first started blogging, I used to read a lot of other blogs and comment a lot on other people’s posts, but due to the sheer volume of comments I have been receiving lately (and still having to work for a living, run a household, take care of pets, maintain this blog, sort through spam, write new posts, etc.), I simply cannot find the time to comment as much as I’d like to, because I’m so busy replying to mine.

I try to read other blogs when I can, but to read everything I want to read and comment on posts too, I would not be able to get any sleep! When I do read, I may “like” your post, but will probably not comment, because there just isn’t any time anymore. I’ve received so much inspiration from so many of you, even when I don’t Like or comment on a post of yours.

This is the problem I dreamed of having when I started this blog in September. Please keep the comments coming! 🙂


About luckyotter

This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

  1. Now that I’ve started back to work, responding is all that I have time and mind for! Don’t stress it too much ma’am, anyone who blogs knows the deal and understands.

  2. Don’t forget that there are only 24 hours in a day. You aren’t Wonder Woman and nobody expects you to be her! I love reading what you write and don’t ever feel like you have to comment back. WordPress is a stress free zone, that’s why were all here. 😉

  3. I think like everyone else, I would love my blog follower numbers to explode. Thankfully it hasn’t and commenting/replying doesn’t take up my entire day.

    Speaking personally, I would love for everyone that I am active with to also comment on my blog but I realize that we all have lives. Additionally we also blog for specific reasons and quite honestly I may not have been posting anything that had peaked their interest.

    It’s all good!

      I think you have a very good blog, Vic and I wish I could comment more. I do read your articles sometimes.
      Your blog may explode one day. If you want that to happen, linking your posts to social media helps a whole lot–I was afraid to do it at first, now it’s second nature. (I don’t link everything, though)

      • I accept the fact that my blog will probably be smaller because I choose to have no social media presence (WordPress and LinkedIn and that is it).

        My last two big bumps in followers occurred because of guest posting on OM’s blog.

          Oh yes, OM will definitely help with your visibility! I just love it when he reblogs something of mine.

          Now I’m just waiting for that incredible day when I get Freshly Pressed — IF that ever happens!

    I think a lot of us are in a similar situation. We all just do what we can when we can.
