My blog had minimal interest when I started 16 months ago – maybe a dozen visits a day, and most of those by my loving partner. And then I blogged about Hurricane Sandy and interest spiked, up to 80-100 hits a day. I tried to keep interest up with my thoughts on gun control and my Top 5 Lists. Interest slid back to 10-20 hits, and I reminded myself that the purpose of the blog was to focus on my writing process. And so I stuck to that.Interestingly enough, people have been visiting more over the past few months – with hits exceeding the days of Sandy, not that this means anything, especially when I admit that most searches are the same: Kesha naked, Nadine Velasquez and Jane Fonda Barbarella.
How anyone could find naked women more interesting than my reflections on the writing process, I will never know.
Try adding the words: “Rob Ford” randomly into your prose as I understand that when a Toronto Star writer did and did not use ‘Rob Ford’ there was substantial interest in and not in his Blogs,..(Blogging / Blog – said Rob Ford, I think.) ?
