    Smile It used to hurt my feelings

    when I would post a picture and a billion people would look at it, but only 20 would reply. I presumed that meant only 20 liked it. Until I realized I do the same thing sometimes. I always ohhh and ahhhhh but don't always comment in writing especially if many many others have.

    I'm guilty...yes I am...after 3 pages of "oh that's nice" I don't feel mine will have much weight so I just look and go to another.

    ::::: raising hand :::::: Sometimes I'm checking the posts, in a hurry, and don't stop to comment. :-\ Also, I don't always check the posts, past the first 3 or 4 pages, if I'm in a hurry.

    I agree with Neesie.. Usually I'm in a rush, and love to see the talent on the board.. I'm totally amazed with it.. There are some that I don't like, but not because of the quality, or talent, but we all have our preferences.. I'm sure that if some of you would see my work, your hair would stand up in fright.. Yup.. I'll get over it, as Im having fun!!!!

    I always value the people who view my posts just like those who leave a comment. People have busy lives and as others have said, sometimes you don't have anything to add.

    Yes, I think we all feel that after so many compliments that it sometimes feels like no one else will read it.

    You can see the amount of views your picture receives. I tend to thing the views are all positive with a few yuks thrown in.

    I look alot but it depends on my mood if I type any comments. I really have not found a quilt I haven't like. Some colors I would question but as my momma says., "If you don't have something nice to say, do not say anything at all."

    I don't post most of the time because I don't want all the emails saying "nice" or "beautiful" etc.

    I'm guilty of it too. If I'm not one of the first 2 or 3, I don't post a comment because I know someone else made the same comment I would have and usually in better words. And now since you have to type at least 10 characters, I can't even post a thumbs up!

    For me, mostly it's because I'm looking at them from my phone, and it's sometimes a pain to respond from there. Doesn't mean I don't love them though!

    I do the same thing - I read through all the comments & if someone has already used the same sentiment I would have expressed, I just don't write most of the time...

    I'm basically a quiet person, I like to sit and watch...and smile and nod when I see something I like. Unfortunately my smiles don't translate well online LOL...when I look at things and they make me smile or bring me joy...I don't necessarily comment so...it's a moment in time and the post made me feel good, and then I move on. Does not diminish the person's work in any way if I don't comment.

    When something has particularly moved me, I have sometimes PM'd or emailed the person directly, because I don't wish to "share"...I guess that says alot about my private side.

    On the other hand, when I post something I do like hearing that others like it!!!!

    If you type a period then the thumbs up icon it will post without out the 10 characters.

    Oh, glad you brought this up sweetpeaches....Like many here, I love all the quilts & such that I see. There's such a vast variety, abundance of inspiration, that you might be typing forever! I too don't post to everything, but I sure look at it all!
