Everyone likes to say they don’t blog for the numbers but that’s a lie. I do. We all do. There was once a point where I spent more time fretting over my page views than actually writing posts. And the thing I learned from that is it’s not the blog posts that make a difference when it comes to stats (though it does help). Really the thing you should be spending your time on is the social media side, interacting with other bloggers and getting your name out there so people will visit your blog.
And I really did enjoy doing that. It was almost like a game. I wasn’t in competition with anyone but myself. I was constantly pushing to get more page views, more followers, more everything. It has taken me a very long time to realise I don’t actually care about that anymore. I will always find the stats fascinating but I really don’t care if I get 50 or 200 page views a day. I’m doing this thing because no matter how many times I try to deny it, I actually quite like writing and I really don’t care how many people read it.
