Only the lonely (dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah)
this feelin ain’t right
     [Roy Orbison, Only
the Lonely

Blogging can be a strange endeavor. Sometimes you post something that you
know – you JUST KNOW – is going to be a big hit. The post is going to get lots
of comments. A ton of other folks are going to link to it. You are going to get
rich and famous as people offer you interesting opportunities after reading your
brilliance. You get the idea.

But then you get bupkis. Nada. Nix, null, the big goose
egg. Some folks read it, but you get nary a comment, nary a link. Your post is
lost in the Twilight
of the blogosphere. (And, then, of course, sometimes a post will
surprise you and get lots more activity than you ever expected.)

So… let’s give some lonely posts some love. Did you post something on your
blog that was really, really good but didn’t get much traffic? Did you run
across a great post somewhere that you thought deserved more commentary? Do you
know of a post that’s just itchin’ for some good conversation? If so, post the
URL below as a comment (please use TinyURL or
SnipURL) and let’s unearth some of these
hidden gems?

C’mon, each one of you can think of one or two. Take the time to share
‘em with us…

P.S. Speaking of hidden gems, remember that it’s never too late to recognize
