What I’ve Learned After Three Years Of Blogging

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”

Double Digits After Three Years! /o/

I love to blog; I am addicted to it! But not to the extent that I can’t live without it :P If you are as addicted as I am, you would know how it feels when you see those statistical data (viewer counts) on your Dashboard, assuming that you’re on WordPress lol! I log in everyday to see how much of my content has been read, what’s been read and how frequently it’s been read. Then from what I learn from the data, I can partially see what I’m gonna write for my next blog entry. But another thing I noticed was the amount readers I’ve been gained over the years.

Before I joined the PostAWeek, my reader count have always been below ten each day. Now however, I’m getting at least 10 per day and at most I get 70 a day! That may not sound much to you, but getting 70 people to read about your opinions, your rants, your problems about life is something that I actually find incredible. 

I now feel really pumped up to write more and probably in three years time I’ll be getting triple-digit-viewer-counts :D

Things You Want to Say to an Ex (30 Day Challenge, day 5)

Dear ex-girlfriend,

It’s been quite a long time since we last communicated at all. I really don’t know what to say, but rest assured I am doing better than before. I won’t lie, I’m not doing fine nor am I doing great, but I am doing better. There have been many things that you taught me in the past and guess what, I’m still learning. I am entirely grateful that you came into my life. And I’ll keep saying this… I really do not know how to repay you, though I you’d say “Just live out your life and don’t screw it up” or something like. So now, I guess the only advice I could give is: don’t stop being who you are. You’re the sunshine in the room, in everybody’s life and that’s the one thing you’re really good at. I’m still amazed that it takes no effort for you to do that, anyway.. I hope you’re doing well, I wish you all the happiness. When we somehow cross paths again, I hope it wouldn’t be so awkward.

– Patrick

Spammers are a Good Sign for Your Blog

Ever since I started Post a Week, I’ve been generating a lot more page views (10 more people reading my blog is very significant for me HAHAHA) and I am eternally grateful for it. Although I did not notice the significance these numbers until I saw my Spam comments inbox. I’ve been getting a lot more spam comments after the start of my Post a Week and I think it’s due to the increase number of page views. I suppose spammers are attracted to blogs with large amounts of page views, and to me is a good sign :D If your spam comments increases over time, you’ll know that you’re doing something right! HAHAHA

PS.. I just love that picture above, don’t you? :P
