This week Dr Tanya’s questions are
How important is your blog traffic to you?
How often do you check your stats?
Which part of your blog traffic, the views, likes, comments or follows, is important for you personally? Which of these do you think is most important for your blog? (these could both be the same)
It’s nice to know that people read my blog, so traffic is important.
However, not all posts appeal to everyone so something I may have written that I was pleased with might not get such as good a response as something else.
I check my stats every day, but they are not the be all and end all of my blog. It used to be when I started as I didn’t understand anything else. Then figures started dipping and I thought I’d ‘lost it’ until I realised that the way they were being recorded had changed. I was still pleased that people read my writings though.
Comments are most important to me as I like to know what people think, even when they don’t agree. We all see things differently, but even if we don’t agree with the writer, there are ways of saying so without being nasty. I appreciate constructive criticism and take such comments on board. Likes are always nice though!
