I don’t post much over at Marigold anymore. That’s partly because I have less time now, and partly because it seems that, lately, every post I make or thread I start is overlooked, or people just don’t respond, or something. I posted a link to my article about online friendships and relationships at womengamers, and 2 people responded, and they didn’t even have comments about the article. I feel as though they didn’t even read it, since I’m not one of the close friends group in the bulletin board. Maybe I’m searching for validation, or maybe I just want acknowledgement… all I know is that, while nobody’s playing favourites, I can’t help feeling like I don’t make the cut. I got the same sort of non-reaction when I mentioned the MSN chat thing… while it’s not really necessarily a big deal to anyone except me, it would have been nice to get one of those posts saying ‘hey, that’s cool!’ that I see so many other people getting.
Damn I’m obsessive sometimes.
