My goal getting: increasing my reply to view ratio
« on: October 26, 2014, 06:59:28 AM »
I am noticing that there are hundreds and hundreds of views to any given thread around but less than a handful of replies. Something is out of whack here (or at least seems to be).

Why is that? Why the reluctance to reply?

I think its human nature... people are after instant gratification, or perhaps just ways to further their own interests.

I guess you might get more replies if you ask more questions or get a bit more controversial. The question is then, are you after valid content or just replies?

I think it has something to do with a combination of things.

Part of it would be a lack of self-esteem.  We are dealing with topics here that are more than just simple fluff.  This is substantive stuff.

Another part is -- as Bob Proctor quotes Earl Nightingale -- "People don't think".  Because this is substantive stuff we are dealing with here,  it also requires some mental effort to digest it. 

Rather than think,  most people in the western/developed world,  would rather "like" a facebook comment or watch more silly youtube videos.

As for the replies,  just engage with those who are engaged,  and let the rest do their thing.

just a thought,

all the best,
