  •  Garrett, this is an excellent point (4+ / 0-)

    It's true that there are quite a few people who comment but never - or very rarely - post a diary of their own. Often, their comments are more cogent and articulate than some diaries, so it's not a lack of writing skills that keeps them from posting diaries.

    It may be an unwillingness to subject themselves to the assault of poorly-behaved commenters, it may be shyness, or it may be the result of suboptimal experiences in their early days of posting.

    It is indeed a very widespread, but unspoken problem, and I fear that we are "missing out" on some wonderful voices who are out-shouted in the clamor of more "popular" voices.

    I have tried to focus my attention and limited time on lesser known diarists, tipping, recommending, and commenting on their work. It's much more gratifying than "drinking from the firehose" in a popular train-wreck diary.

    Some drink deeply from the river of knowledge. Others only gargle. -- Woody Allen
