It's a cringey, boring stereotype of Americans that is no longer relevant because the Midwest is also no longer relevant.

Was the midwest ever relevant? Did anyone ever say "Go midwest, young man"?

When they still had jobs they were kinda relevant in an aw schucks kinda way. Now they're all dirt poor and voting for Trump which is the closest they've come to being relevant since John Candy ate one too many Twinkies or whatever the ****.

They/it are/is - don't you only have the one? You certainly put a lot of work into it, and your passion and commitment and interest shine through.
Well, when you have 10+ journals, the reward will never exceed the work. Just saying. I rarely get people posting in my journal and that hasn't stopped me from putting 100% of my effort into it. I never made a journal expecting replies because the point of the journal is for your personal interests and personal thoughts about things we don't talk about in the actual forum. At least not in depth. Getting replies and views is just a plus. That's my thought on it anyway. But again, I use my journal as more of a personal project so anything I put in there will usually get more involvement and effort than my usual posts on the forum.

Maybe other people see journals another way but that's how I use mine.

And I've never really looked at view counts for journal. More views doesn't necessarily mean it's full of stuff you'll like. Yes, I understand the irony as I used to write for views but whatever.

Oh I'm not saying it's a bad thing. It's always welcome and nice.

For me it wasn't necessarily the fact that nobody was commenting that made me stop, cos I did get a fair few comments, though usually from the same people. Sure, I did feel at times like I was writing for myself, but again, not the issue. It was I think just the sheer volume of work I was making myself put in, that then would perhaps seem not be have been recognised, and the idea that I could be doing other things. Look at the various Metal Months: I put so much work, effort and creativity into them that I was really proud, yet most of it seemed to just pass people by, and that was disappointing.

But eventually I had to make the decision to settle down and really try getting my writing going (which I have) as well as just, well, being able to enjoy the forum instead of making it a nine-to-five, which was what it was becoming. Ever found yourself turning off the TV and saying "better get working on that article now"? Or "I have to review this album before Tuesday" or whatever? Yes, all self-inflicted and nobody's to blame but me, but in the end I was putting too much effort into it, making it a chore and all the while thinking of the other things I could be doing. Had I got tons of comments, people asking when is this or that review up, would I have continued? Maybe. But the real writing was always waiting there, and I had to make a choice.

There isn't enough time in the day to read all your threads tbh.

True, true. I realised that after the last Metal Month. Too much content, not enough time. That's why even with the threads I'm running now, I'm not doing my usual ten updates a week or whatever, just taking it as it comes.
