Is There Anybody There?

By the way, it seems that only a few people leave comments here anymore, compared to the past. Well, there is still a lot of traffic here on my weblog, even more than before actually, but all the very commenting kind of shifted to Facebook etc, didn't it?

Anyways, I'll keep posting here, thanks everyone!
