Feeling Ignored

Ok, so, I belong to about 23 teams on Etsy.  We play the games, you know, link exchanges, favorite this, favorite that, follow me etc, etc......   Well, out of the 23 teams that I play these games in, I am lucky if I get 1 person to return the favor.  So, what am I doing wrong?  Is there something else I should be doing?  Would love some feedback and advice.  Meanwhile, I will keep playing in hopes that people will start noticing.   


  1. Most people just post and run, that's just the way it is. I captain a team on Etsy (Etsy Hearts Beads Team) and I have the same issue with getting everyone to be active with games and discussions (and I too am guilty of posting and running now and again when I'm busy). I would focus your attention to a smaller number of good teams that are active (not necessarily a ton of members) and have a friendly environment. It's much better to have quality than quantity.

  2. I would agree with Heather. It's WAY too much of a headache to try and stay active in ALL the teams. I have 3 that I am very active in and poke my head in every once in a while to the others. Keep your head up!

  3. I'm new to this whole blogging thing, but I would listen to these two. Sounds like they know what they're talking about. You got three comments from Blogging Buddies, so that's probably a good team to stay on.

    1. Yes, I am definitely staying with Blogging Buddies. In fact, I think that is where most of my followers came from.

  4. Hi- I belong to Blogging Buddies too.. and I have 45 teams. I feel lucky to check in with all of them 3 to 4 times a month. I sometimes play the game about liking an item from the shop above you-- but most of the time I don't have the time.
    I probably should play more and this coming year I will try. I also need to blog more...(and there are 5 of those!!).
    don't let it get you down- every one is just busy.
