Blogging, Readers and Six years
I just completed six years of blogging and surprisingly I realized it late. Off late I am not blogging that regularly. It doesn't mean that I have lost interest or I don't care. Blogging here is direct reflection of my mind and thinking. So its natural that I blog when I feel like sharing something and not to fill.
I agree with the way Matt of wordpress puts it
I used to think constantly about building an audience for my blog. But now my attitude is, If I'm not blogging for myself, it's not worth it. So I don't post once a day, only when it feels natural. Some people complain -- they say, "Write more about WordPress; we don't want to see photos of kids in Vietnam," but I don't really care. I really like posting photos of places I've been. For my 25th birthday last January, I published a list of 2009 goals on my blog. It included learning Spanish, learning how to cook, and posting 10,000 photos. The Spanish is going all right, but I'm failing the cooking one.
Its not that I am not worried about the readers or analytics. I keep looking at my Google Analytics account once a month at least. In fact the goal for me is to reach 1k rss readers by year end. Its just that its not the primary goal as it used to be before.
I will keep sharing my life, photographs, travelogues and technology notes as long as you read and I feel like. Thanks for subscribing to my RSS feed :)
And a very Happy Ganesh Chaturthy.
