Yesterday my blog reached a milestone when it was being viewed by readers in Canada and the United Kingdom. It might not sound like it’s that big of a deal, but it is. I’ve had this blog for a year now and haven’t been able to do that yet. Since I started writing this blog I’ve always had this issue of not getting views or just getting very few. It’s a problem that all new bloggers get. Everywhere I look online I always see the same helpful hint that, “if you reach out to other bloggers then they’ll reach back.” I haven’t exactly done this but that may change soon.
I’ve also read that a way to get more views is to write often. I obviously haven’t written blog posts as much as I would have due to personal reasons. I also just don’t know what to write. I’ve been trying to find what it is that readers are looking for. For a time I realized that posting recipes would draw people to both read and follow my blog. But writing recipes for a post can be boring. After reading some wise words on another blog, I realized what to write about.
There’s a blog out there called Harsh Reality and I will admit that it can intimidate me. Laugh, it’s okay. The reason I find this blog intimidating is how often its author writes a blog post; which is like fifteen a day. What is there for me to talk about that much? I have trouble with just writing one post a week. This blog also gets so many views and followers, it’s crazy! I just try my best to keep up. This blog however has recently posted some very wise words. This blog stated that it doesn’t matter what I write. Meaning I don’t have to stick with one theme and I stated in the beginning that I wouldn’t. My thoughts can just be so random that there is no specific theme for all of them.
There are topics that I write about more than others. These would be my fandoms and I have specific pages for them. I’m just not going to worry about what will draw readers to my page because they’ll find it eventually. I will say this and I’m not surprised but Roman Reigns definitely brings me views. I wonder why, I write with a sarcastic tone. I just want to thank everyone who reads my blog and has followed it. Please continue what you are doing and I will do my best to write post on a set schedule.
