Two More!

59 Comments

I need two more comments to get me to 20,000! Who’s gonna help?

commentsWhat also surprised me when I noticed how close I am to 20K, is that almost 1/3 of my views have comments. I think that’s pretty decent.

  12. Reblogged this on cognitive reflection and commented:
    Blog stat wise I’ve generally been pretty good. Good in that I don’t tend to look at them that often these days. Some people don’t look at them at all, they are not important to those people and that is fair enough. Other people swear by them and fret if there stats start to fall and there are others fall somewhere inbetween

    I tend to fluctuate, but currently and for some time I have been in the later camp, in fact the only time I tend to check my stats (barring number of followers) these days is when someone else posts theirs and so I check mine.

    It is generally 0.5 seconds after looking at their stats that I feel depressed about my stats. I say depressed but it isn’t like a woe is me let me throw myself off the nearest doorstep kind of depressed, more a β€œshit are mine really that low” kind of though before moving on.

    And so it is today, when I compare mine to Linda’s mine sucks big donkey balls.

    We are all out there doing our thing how we do it, and we hope we make connections and we like making connections etc. I don’t think that it is that we need to be validated or anything like that but it is more forming connections with other human beings and learning something along the way. I’ve always said that if I didn’t care that no one read the stuff I put up I would put it on a word document and save it on my hard drive.

    So I think that it is fair to say that when we put this stuff out there we want to be read, liked and followed (just not by those business/self help/ghost type blogs) and so out measurement on how successful or not that is we have the stats. That those show me in no uncertain terms that (in this example) Linda is successful (congratulations on that by the way) and I am not.

    • Sorry, I thought I was putting this wall of text on my blog

      • No problem – it was an interesting read. My fiction blog’s stats suck big donkey balls compared to here, and I’ve posted there at least once a day for the past 130 days. You’re not alone. Getting read is hard work.

        • I’ve only just started my second blog so that will have no stats to speak of, my one however has been around since about 2010 I think, so it is pretty dire reading; nd one I am not sure how to correct.

          I’ve tried advertising mine and all I get is loads of unwanted followers (business, self help and people that you never hear from) but the true litmus is comments and views, your blog, and least this one seems to have that nailed… well done.

          • The essential ingredient, I’ve found, is using the tags in the reader to find people who are interested in writing about the same things I am. So if I write a poem, for instance, I’ll go look up poetry and read and comment and sometimes follow.
            Best of luck, and thanks so much for your kind words. πŸ™‚

              • However you tag your own posts. Or alternatively, if you come up with something good to search for, make sure you tag your posts appropriately and it’ll help others find you.

              • yeah I did that, sadly all I seem to get from it were followers that had no interest in my blog but more wanting to sell me something, or self help, or people that follow you and you never hear from them ever ever again (I dont get that concept). So doing all that sadly didnt work for me, it gave me a glut of pretty useless followers (bar a few exceptions) and little in the way of comments and views.
