Changed my mind

I have a confession to make. Numbers have effect on me. I didn’t thought they have, but they sure do.

Every view or un-view, every like or no like, every comment or no comment counts.

When I read OMs number and stats post I often think – am I the same or do I think different when it comes to numbers in stats?

I don’t. I do check stats and find them amusing when they go up and makes me wonder when they goes down.

It’s like OM always says. It’s all about how much time you devote to your blog. He’s right.

When I don’t have enough time to write posts och read blogs and commment and like, my stats goes down. 

When I work hard with writing posts and show activity on other blogs stats improves.

Even though numbers in stats counts, I also blog because of you guys. The responses I get is really inspirering and kind of a nice company.

I like when my ipad says “pling” everytime something happens on my blog.

So numbers and “plings” do count. By that I mean, you all count for me 😉

  1. I am happy to give you a “pling” 🙂

    I have got to the point personally where I actually get to read whether or not people have read my blog… I am not sure when I actually reached the point of not worrying whether or not people are looking at my page. I think it is probably because I am writing more for myself than I am for other people.

    Having said that, of course I would love to get lots of feedback on the work, but I have stopped expecting it to come.

  2. I agree with you to an extent. I am a new blogger so i love to know that other people read what I say and that they like it. On the other hand a lot of time my posts are to record the thoughts for myself, because I think I forget so much. It helps me to remember even if no one else reads.

  3. I started out writing because I enjoy it and thought perhaps a few others might as well. Now I check my stats frequently, which is silly. I don’t know if I just want to see my efforts come to fruition, or if I need approval. I certainly hope it’s the former!

  4. Hey Anna! I have struggled with this a lot over the last year… the need for recognition via likes and comments. It nearly drove me from writing. I decided that I would just share on my blog the things that I enjoy and if people end up liking and commenting, then great… if not… oh well. I check my stats once a week and then review which days were the best and what content I posted on those days that people enjoyed the most. Then I work to include more of that kind of content. I will never reach the numbers that OM has, but it’s nice to have the small audience I do have. And I am trying so hard to be a better reader for those I follow and leave likes AND comments. It takes more time, but I like the personal touch of commenting. Have a blessed day, Anna! and !PLING!
