So…. this post of a video got 16 comments, and this post which was all “thinky” (or at least attempting to be) about art vs commerce, got 4 (the most recent from mcurry and quite “thinky” itself). Now, with over 1000 readers currently “friending” this blog, and who knows how many non-LJ people stopping by* — these are hardly a representative sampling to draw scientific conclusions from as the percentage is far too small. But it would seem to indicate that a 30-second post gets 4 times as much attention as an essay. Is this a reflection on the worth of those posts? I’m guessing not, but it does make one ponder where one should spend one’s efforts. Not that I’m trolling for comments. I just find it curious.
And now that I’ve pointed out mcurry‘s comment, people should go argue with him. Or agree with him, if they must. *g*
*Just in case anyone wasn’t sure, you can make a comment whether you are on LJ or not — they get screened but I go through and authorize them frequently.
