2014 in review – is anybody listening?

The WordPress.com stats people prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. I thought I’d share it as it’s pretty, but it made me laugh at how pitiful it all sounds. It also has the opposite effect of the one intended – I feel so dis-inspired that I wonder whether it’s worth bothering to blog at all. Despite posting links to my posts on facebook and twitter, I have failed to gain many followers or many comments. Without interaction, blogging might as well be writing into a private paper diary. Perhaps I’m just not that interesting. On the other hand, I seem to be starting 2014 rather severely depressed, so it’s not easy to get any kind of perspective on reality. Anyway, here it is.

  1. I blogged for about a year and it takes time for you to build up a readership. Then as always happens, my life got in the way. So this year I restarted. My sole aim is to write the odd post and read, comment and enjoy other peoples. The more you like and comment on like minded peoples posts the more traffic and like minded comments you’ll get on your own blog and posts. We are all entirely unique, write about the stuff you care and feel passionately about in you own “unique” voice. Other people will also care and feel passionately about those things, the trick is to find them. Most of my enjoyment comes from being able to read others. If they like and comment on my stuff. BONUS! If they don’t that’s okay. Yes we are out here and yes we are listening. You just have to work out what your message is and what you truly are trying to say. Good luck. x
