Title: Listener Interaction
Post by: Saltek on March 15, 2017, 04:26:44 PM
So on the most recent Blank Outsiders Michelle and John were asking how to get more people to interact with them.  I cannot speak for anyone but myself but personally I have been listening for eight years and can't remember ever sending an e-mail or really following a post on the forums.

The reason I have a hard time with it is that I do not have any social media accounts, I just never have found that kind of thing appealing.  Anyone I know and want to interact with I do so over text, in person or through gaming. So without any social media it falls to e-mails, voice mails or the forums.

I have rarely had anything to contribute to the show via voicemail or e-mail so never have bothered and as far as these forums I have never been able to figure out where I post something or do I make a new topic for it. I know you moderators are pretty cool but I find forums to be very congested and posts (like this one probably hahaha!) just get lost in the mass of other things going on.

Anyway I just thought I would chime in for why at least one long time listener never interacts with you guys.

Sorry for the long post love the show keep it up!

Well, thanks for saying hello and explaining, you're in the massive majority! Maybe a few more will try the Reddit thing, it's low commitment and a nice place to suggest news stories.

Helloooo Saltek.   Nice to digitally meet you.

I like the Reddit thing, but it kinda makes me feel like I'm renting space in someone else's house.
