NOT FINDING ANY SUPPORT......

I just have to say that I am very disappointed in the lack of support I've received on Cafe Moms. Any time I read someone else's post, I usually, untill lately try to say something to them so they will at least know I've read it and care, even if I don't have an answer for them. When I post things, it will say 15 or maybe 25 views and I'm lucky if I get one comment. Where is the support we are suppose to have for each other ? And I've posted some pretty serious stuff. At least it is too me. I hate to sound like a whinny baby but I'm just expressing my feelings and wodering if anyone else feels the same way. I don't want to leave the group but at this point I feel like it really wouldn't matter. I could just be writing all this in my journal if all I wanted to do was write. Really, is it just me or does anyone else feel the same ?

 

Should this post be popular?

yep been there done that wrote the book. But I have learned that sometimes who comments on it is not as improtant as who may have seen it. I know that I have written several things being led by my spirit man and it be weeks before anyone even comments.God knows what He is doing and just pray for those who read it that even if they said nothing it touched them or gave them something to think about..

Oh yes I know what you mean. I've written many journals and got only a couple responses at best. This is my new profile though, I deleted the other because I had some weirdo harrassing me. So I haven't written any with this one. Don't feel bad! Everyone is just wrapped up in their own issues. They should be giving advice and supporting other moms, that's what cafemom is all about, but I have learned a lot of things aren't like they are supposed to be. If you ever need to talk or vent, you can PM me anytime. I am a good listener and love giving advice and support. =)

Sometimes I, too, get more views than responses. But that's okay with me...because at least I know that someone took the time to read something, personal of mine...something I was feeling intensely/not intesely at the time. It just makes me feel that I am voice that is being heard...when they don't respond, I just feel that maybe somethings are better unsaid...or maybe they just didn't know what to say...either way, I am writing my journals because I need to unload something...and the regular hand writting one has well...maybe become too primitve for me...I

  well just so you know,I care .I think alot of people just don't comment to things they can't relate to. Sometimes I get no comments but I think that people that get alot of feedback are the ones that spend alot of time on here.I hate to say it but I think it's just  the same as every where else .."popularity "and I've NEVER been a popular person. Anyway if you never need a friend look me up I'll try to support you the best way I can.GOODLUCK Tammy

I can't really relate because I don't care about getting views or comments.  But, if you do care, there are ways to go about increasing that.  First, get to know lots of moms here.  Join and participate in the groups that interest you and form friendships.  Invite all those people to be your "friend".  I noticed that you don't have a lot of friends on your list.  Journals get posted constantly and things get bumped down reallky quickly.  If someone is on your friends list, your journal title will appear in their homepage when they log in and they are more likely to see it and respond.

Thanks ya'll for at least letting me know it's not just me. We all just need to support each other more, even if its nothing more than a darn hug sign, and just say I don't have any answers for you, but I'm here. Gosh I sound soooo whinney now. LOL

But, if you have read my post you'll understand what a hard time I'm having right now......Love to all who at least take the time to read it. I know we are all fighting our own personal battles.
