For all the members purportedly on PS I sure don't get many views.  Should I be offering a gift with purchase?

Best way to get views is to comment on others especially active community member. They 100% comment back. You get what you give here.

Dale, its the same for me and most others on PS, I have won contests with poems with zero views and have tons with none, one or two comment (partly my fault because I myself do not have time to comment on other poets very much) it seems to be the way of PS now, but I just keep writing because in the end I write for me, peace _Constance

It is an issue affecting us all Dale, over recent months I have seen a drop in reads in general over the whole site. I remember when I first joined I had lots of reads into treble figures each day,now it's around 40 unless I am very active with commenting which is difficult as I am busy with exam supervision. Will drop by , hugs Jan xx

The Soup it seems is no different to Facebook and Twitter. You have your little cabals, echo chambers and encounter groups who wouldn't know a good poem if they fell over one. You can either play the game or be true to thine own self and just write and post for the love of it.

hey man, why don't you just pop in and say hi? That's how I know when people are around. So busy and it's hard to keep up with folks. I'll come to you right now.

Perhaps they are all on hold waiting to schedule an appointment to get the Covid vaccination.
