I’ve realised recently that I seem to be checking on my stats a lot when I upload a post. I write, edit, post, tweet out, tell everyone I know and then rush straight over to my stats page to check how many people actually read my post.
Thinking about it more, I have also been guilty of writing content purely because I knew that it would be popular. Have you ever done this? I don’t want to be the only one!
What I’m trying to say is that I need to stop checking on the stats. I need to write what I want and not be worried about whether or not it got 10 views or 100.
When I first started this blog, I didn’t tell anyone that I was writing it. I just wanted it to be my space to share thoughts and life lessons with strangers. It’s only as my blog started to grow that I told people. I enjoyed talking to people about my posts and telling people when there will be a new one.
I want to go back to writing for me not for the stats.
