Many new bloggers love to read articles and blog posts about blogging. I have published many myself, on that very subject. One thing that disheartens so many bloggers, is how few views they get. Added to a lack of comments, they can often feel that the whole thing is pointless, their blog read by family and friends, and all their excitement about starting that blog has come to nothing.
One of the main tips I give them is to make sure that they are posting content regularly. Whether they have a niche blog on a specific subject, or a varied blog about anything and everything, new content may well find a new audience. One that the previous post failed to capture. Keep posting, continue to put your stuff out there, and it will hopefully get attention in time. But of course, many do not heed that advice. They post excitedly at first, then become dejected by lack of engagement. Their output slows down, and finally stops.
So I offer an example of how important it is to keep posting, irrespective of whether you have 4 followers, or 4,000+.
I recently put out a post explaining that I would be away from the blog for a while, and would not be posting much, or keeping up with everyone I follow. The day before, my main blog had received 338 views, higher than my daily average. Today, my blog has so far received just 38 views, back to the figures I used to get the first week I started out, in 2012.
But I understand why. I haven’t posted any content since a film review on the 19th, and in just two days, my daily views have dropped by 300.
Content is King. Good content is even better.
Learn by my own example here, and keep writing. Keep posting your photos, keep crafting, or whatever it is you do. No content equals no views.
After all, why should they bother, if you don’t?
