    Interesting Phenomena

    I had just written on the group why I love Experience Project and wrote that I don't get comments and thought I was, 'too heavy' then when I was about to shut down the computer for the night I came across this group. Synchronicities! Perhaps you're right that people just don't...

    Do comments really count

    I Used to Care

    I would log in and get all excited if it said "New Sotry Comments", or get al down when it didn't. I would check to see how many views something I spent an hour writing would have. 3?Just THREE? Then I would take a break from this site because it would tick me off. One...

    It's a Feeling

    Is it nice to have comments on my stories ... yes. Even if I don't agree with them ... yes. It shows someone read my story, really read it hopefully. I do read all the comments on my stories ... even though I may not respond to them. It is nice to see my comments 'thumbed up...

    One Day At A Time

    I care. I like to see people read my stories. Cuz i know that in this place, EP, its not what you know but rather who you are that counts.   Anyone else notice that?

    I value everyone's opinion and I love comments, don't get me wrong... but it's not the end of the world if someone doesn't comment on them.  The stories one writes should be for his or herself.  It shouldn't matter if no one comments, sometimes people don't know what to...

    Rspnse To Niceleal20

    I cracked up laughing because I associated so much with how you used to feel that after pouring your heart out for an hour and no one responded you got ticked and left temporarily this site. How I can relate, really. This sometimes happens to me still. I think it's great...

    Comments Are Comments

    And they're just that. They're thoughts that maybe my stories have conjured from their minds. That's all.... And while we all love getting comments, it isn't like we'll blow up into pieces if we don't get one for every story...

    It's Not That Serious

    Life has enough troubles of its own without trying to create another. It's just not that serious. While it's gratifying to receive comments, I'm pleased to have the opportunity to express my feelings. That's what EP is all about. I'm not trying to build a fan base of story...

    If someone can't relate to a story I write, they probably won't comment on it, and that's fine. I don't comment on those that I have no experience with either.
