TEST

Someone recently informed me that the length of a blog post is inversely proportional to the number of comments I receive on said blog post.
Let's put that to the test:
HI!
(I suspect this post is already too long...oy...)

you're right the number of comments are inversely proportional to the length of your post

I think the number of comments is more closely linked to the topic of the post... blogging about your love life gives us much more interesting ammo.

I would have to agree with anonymous #2, it's kind of like rubber-necking, everyone slows down to check out a terrible accident even though we know it's wrong :)
not saying your love life is an accident, just a fender bender

I've found that asking for comments is a surefire way to get none at all. But, then again, I may just be an outlier.

I suppose I should also mention that I have comment-envy.

I agree with you but that's why I consider it a pleasant thought. It's a horrible reality because, well - it doesn't happen like that. It's all of the matrimonial - mom trying to set you up with Mr. Void of Personality from Harvard. You know?

I love your long and shorts musings...however i am more inclined to read the short ones when im in a hurry :D

I was just thinking the same thing! I posted a one liner and got 16 comments! Write a couple of paragraphs and people suffer from ADD, I got only 5 comments on my latest.

People read at work so I guess they have to read quickly?

I feel compelled to comment just because I want to skew the data. Please note this in your test results.

If a blog falls in the forest and there's no one to read it would it have comments?

still short from the post before this (by 4 comments) despite a MASSIVE difference in length. but if i ignore that, the theory looks pretty good :D

I figured the last 19 comments were getting pretty lonely... so I thought I'd drop by :)
