i don't mean to stir things up
but i think both hush and brad had a point
this is not going to reflect very well on me but oh well....
i was rather obsessed with numbers when i was still a new member..as a beginning writer, i had this attitude of wanting feedback from the world and i wasn't gathering many replies from my musings...being disheartened and later noticing that older members such as marge and denise would gather lots replies because they spent time reading others and encouraging them with positive comments, i replied because i liked to read and respond but because i wanted very much to boost my post count...
the numbers meant a lot to me...it was a way of distinguishing yourself from the rest...other times my works suffered the passionate plummet but whenever i reached a milestione, they stayed on top for a little while longer and i got slightly more comments and i was happy
because if i hadn't reached those 1000th, 2000th milestones, i believe i wouldn't have received so much replies, so much attention from the rest of passions...
i will like to think that i have matured a little now but to be honest, i am excited about my upcoming 3000th post...only this time, i hope to write something that will be worthy of the attention i know i will get...
so yup, i did reply superficially just for the sake of increasing my post count...here's one memeber for you
