i realize that a lot of factors contribute to comment-leaving, as it were.  if i haven’t written in a long time, there tend to be more comments when i do finally post again.  if i leave one thing up on the front page for several weeks, there are more comments, then, too.  there have also been several periods during which i’ve disabled the comments due to abuse.  leaving those things out, though, here’s the data.  of these 54 posts:

19 are stories
19 are sad
16 are semi-imaginary
13 have dialogue
12 are about food
11 are about friends
9 are about boyfriends
9 are funny
9 are one word or one sentence long
8 are lists
7 are about movies or music
6 are about my apartment
6 are about school
5 are about work
5 are about weather
5 are technical
5 are medical
3 are about birthdays
3 are photos
3 are old memories

does anyone know what all this data means?  i sure as hell don’t.
