I do watch my blog stats! I admit it. As a writer of a blog in a niche area with a potentially limited audience, I wonder if this limits me. Then I remember I don’t really care because the readers that I do have on a regular basis are awesome folks who actually engage…a lot. I read about the blogging ups and downs of mega-bloggers like a opinionated man (Harsh Reality) who have some of the same challenges that I do on my tiny niche blog. I also know this blog wasn’t started (like some other blogs I know) for me or my family, it’s truly meant to be a resource for folks if possible. But back to the question in the title: Are my readers fickle or are they just busy and overloaded with information? Even though we may follow a blog, I would venture to say we don’t always read it or even click on it some or most of the time. Reading all the blogs I follow would be a royal pain in the ass, especially as some of those bloggers post 5-8 times per day. I think I’m right….readers don’t always read our blogs even though they follow them; and THAT’s OK. I appreciate anyone who follows, reads, glances at or comments on my blog at all. It’s royally cool to have followers who comment back and I appreciate it.
