I'm a newbie here so I don't have a lot of data to compare over time. I can imagine how disappointing it would be to see the stats fall like that. Like so many things in life, what happens with the algorithim is completely out of our control.
I work M-F so I don't have a lot of free time. So I've decided to write and read when I can. There are many friendships I'm beginning to build and that's part of what keeps me here.
Hoping in the next few months things turn around for the best for you!
