Nine days ago I decided to take a stab at this blog thing. It is definitely a work in progress and I have a long way to go to make ‘good’. It does seem like a vast majority of bloggers do not stick with it long enough to ever achieve the good status…there is a fair chance that I will join the millions of other would be bloggers & stop writing within a month or two.But until then, I have become mildly obsessed. I blame it on the WordPress’ statistics page. I find myself constantly logging in to see how many views, how people found my blog, etc. I was secretly thrilled the first time I hit triple digits. Then I topped 200 views a day for 3 days in a row – woohoo – I’m famous! The constant monitoring of my WordPress stats has replaced my less diligent, but no less obsessive monitoring of the DVIDS page where I post pictures to share with the world.
I will continue to watch my statistics (it’s a good diversion from the infinitely more important, but less fun things I need to do). I will continue to try to figure out what interests others, but at the end of the day, this is for me & what I feel like sticking out there. All the better if it is something others like too, but the goal is for me to figure out a forum to share my thoughts & my pictures. If it brings joy & entertainment to others, that’s a bonus.
You can help me be better by giving me some honest feedback: what do you like about my blog, what should I improve? Any layout tips from those that are more experienced? Anything I can do to find people that may want to read this?
Thanks & keep the view clicks coming…I will go over the 1000 view mark very soon!
