Look at my stats, and tell me something. Am I good blogger?
I’ve been blogging for quite some time, and one thing always escapes me, “Why haven’t I been on Freshly Pressed?” Or better yet, “Why don’t I have hundreds of viewers at a time in my blog?” Granted, I only stepped up my game a year ago. However, I see other bloggers gaining recognition after only 5 months of blogging (and they write you as u.) So what’s up with me?
Could it be my tags? I don’t think so, since I leave it to WordPress to tag my posts.
Could it be my titles? Probably. I still don’t get this how-to-attract-readers-with-an-attractive-title thing.
Could it be the content itself? According to the stats, it seems so:
The post “Why You Should Date a Photographer” has over two thousands views; I didn’t write it (the link to the original writer is in its post.) Continue reading “What I’ve Learned After Three Years Of Blogging”
Let me start this post with a quote.
The personal blog, an ongoing diary or commentary by an individual, is the traditional, most common blog. Personal bloggers usually take pride in their blog posts, even if their blog is never read. (Wikipedia)
This cannot be any truer. I am very proud of my blog, and it is a great miracle that I can actually reach out to millions of people with just a single click. Not many people read my stuff, which is okay. I only write stuff about what bothers me and what interests me. I write because it is a great outlet for me, and it is definitely better than smoking.
However, it has come to my attention that despite my valiant efforts in writing something that’s worth reading, the most viewed post in my blog isn’t even written by, your’s truly. The post I’m talking about is Why You should Date a Photographer.
This piece is excellently written. And I have to admit, I cannot write as good as this. Which then brings me to the next point, realisation. I am a terrible writer. It’s true! I’ve seen the statistics in my dashboard and Why You should Date a Photographer is the most viewed in the three years that I’ve been writing in this blog.
I’m not interested in how many views I get, I’m just bothered by the fact that something I didn’t write is the most popular thing in my blog. It’s like losing in dice rolling with your own loaded dice. It really stings.
PS that a picture from a JAV. It’s pretty good lol
I fear that these past following weeks have made me a sloppy writer. I fear that I may have lost my touch as a writer; as Austin Powers would say “I think I’ve lost my mojo”
All my recent post have been getting five to eight readers, and that really put a huge dent in my “pride”. It makes me wonder… I might be a terrible writer. I know I’ve improved over the year, but it just seems that people just don’t care about reading or something.
Even my previous post, which composed mostly of pictures, only had nine readers. That was very alarming since I know that I am such an awesome photographer, and I’m not even kidding.
One thing that distresses me is that I might have to change my style of writing all together just so that I have my 50+ readers again… But no, it wouldn’t be real me.
I gotta pull myself together and write something good before I get lumped together with those mainstream bloggers.
