Pragmatic Compendium

inspiring the pragmatic practice of intimacy with Christ

blog stats are meaningless.

Me: I’m looking at my blog differently these days. I’m looking at it like writing instead of blogging.

FirstHusband: I thought that’s why you started to blog in the first place.

Me: Maybe. But then I got caught up with stats and comments and wanting people to like me.


Me: You know, this whole Easter Bunny Cake thing is a lesson. Nearly 1600 views in the last 30 days, and almost 900 of them in the last seven days. And look at my comments this last week. I hear crickets. Blog stats are meaningless gauges of success. I do need to go back to writing for me. I need to write about what I want, instead of what I think other people might want. I don’t know what other people want.

So, starting yesterday, I’m going back to writing for me. And I’m going to try my hardest not to care whether you like it or not.

  2. Always best to write from what amuses the writer, in my experience. At DadLabs we’ve tried to listen for things that would be useful to our audience, but we don’t write for the benefit of bots and search engines. That would suck.
