Was just looking back a year from today and it seems like the daily entries have diminished by almost half...and thats not just for today ....last year it appears to have run consistently around the 63-65 ish entry numbers...now it seems to be in the mid 30's as an average....whats up with that???..people loosing interest??...grey matter and creative influences gone,found other avenues to post at...what the hell????

Talk to me people ...or is it just me and the copius quantities of livations I have consumed thats blurring my vision and my math skills???....Hic~up....

Just wondering !!!

couldb, things have seemed to drop off a bit, #'s across the board have gone down, even the #'s of votes has gone down...(especially for my works) Embarassed
I used to post every day, back when quality was not my greatest concern, over funny, but now I'm more picky on the source photos, so I guess I'm partly to blame for lower #'s Confused also, I'm in a choppers rut right now, I will make an effort to post more often, Very Happy wow! I feel better already, I just got some ideas Idea what were we talking about again Rolling Eyes

Definitely down to "time concerns" for me and sometimes chop block but also work effects i.e. I have to focus on small objects for 10+ hours a day, so my eyes are mighty tired after that most of the time. Shocked I'd love to post more.

Personally, I like it when there are less posts -

1) I post much less than I did before because, being self-employed, I have problems taking time off to GOOF AROUND (so to speak).

2) when there are 60+ entries I don't even START to look through them all - it just takes too long. And FORGET about voting.

3) at around 30 or so I might just start actually commenting and voting again.

4) I have no 4th point to make.

Good Night, Nurse.

Right, it's going down. Question

Yeah... being self employed... I recently worked between 60 to 100 hours a week.
Over that I moved 3 weeks ago and the house is still a big mess!
I also went often to Home Depot!
Laughing
And over and over and over... a new baby (another little girl) is coming next month.
Just no time at all... just voting a little bit... but I'll come back when it's possible... hope soon!
But now... tired... absolutely no inspiration!

My 2 cents...
I too, like Claf am doing the family thing and have little time to even get a clue as to what I am doing. even thought I have only been involved since October. and already took time off over the winter due to work restictions. I do this in my spare time and that is limited
( as are my skills LOL ) but I dont plan on going away totally any time soon... I need you guys to hang tough and stick around so I can better my own skills so keep coming!

Oh.... and could beMAN; it seems no one has directly answered your original question posed in the title of this thread:

so

Yes. it IS you.
Yes, you ARE going mental.

(Sure, I'm not a real shrink, but I play one on TV... so trust me on this!)
