I have been through the writer website experience a fair bit.
Let me take a crack at a new idea here.
Any time, another person comes to this website, and you are feeling unread, let's set up a "I NEED LOVE NOW!!!" topic for the unread person to post in. And for anyone, ANYONE that is on AS, to instinctively, CHECK this topic for unread writers who are circling the drain and go give them some love or attention or, if it's in you to do do, READ his piece.
Some days, it's just about being heard, I think. We don't ask for much.
I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY think this problem can never be solved. Why? Because the way _I_ browse (and I bet you do this too) is NOT IN ANY LOGICAL manner.
I mean, I came online tonight with a plan to look at Gary Barlow's songwriting style and check out this "Google" London youtube studios subject and here I am, on AuthorStand, reading posts.
I feel the internet makes us BROWSE this way. And whether you, personally, in your linear, "I am writing this story now someone please review it, this seems logic to me, why haven't you reviewed it, I reviewed YOURS" way are feeling UNREAD...
I don't think anyone is DOING this intentionally.
Another good example. I have all KINDS of people I subscribe on youtube. In the main, lately, all I DO is browse. And I'm NOT checking those subscription account. Hm.....
