I thought I didn't care, but no view count feels like crickets. It doesn't matter so much that folks respond, but if no one is reading, I feel less inspired to post.
That's what I always felt too - if no one comments on something I posted my anxiety level goes up slightly - is anybody reading it? how do I know? at least with view count I knew if people were reading which sometimes is enough - don't always need responses - just knowing somebody is reading - I feel validated.
