every now and then I try to get myself motivated to blog more often. There was a campaign doing the rounds when I first started a few years back now that set out a schedule for bloggers to write either once a day, once a week or month and so on. Well I tried the once a day and that didn’t work so I tried once a week but I found that because I’d set myself a schedule there was no way I could keep to it. Life always seemed to interrupt in some way or another.
Today I was thinking that I really should do this on a more regular basis and I think that one of the reasons I don’t, apart from the time constraints my job, writing my book and life in general place upon me, is that I don’t think anyone actually reads my blog.
That was until a few days ago.
A few days ago I posted my latest piece entitled ‘Where have all the hero’s gone?’ and a day later I dutifully checked my stats and the usual few hits were there, a couple from the UK where I live, which I put down to family and friends and then also a few from the US. This is not unusual as I’ve made contact with a few people across the pond and I put the figures down to those. The day after that though I registered a few from the UK and US as well as from the Republic of Korea and Mauritania.
I can now boast that I am an internationally read blogger. That may be small potatoes to those of you out there who have actual followers who make themselves known to you but to me this is a big deal.
That is why I am making a concerted effort to blog on a more regular basis. If these people take the time and trouble to read my work then the least I can do is give them something to read. I cannot guarantee the quality of the work but I can guarantee it’ll be there.
That’s all for now,
see you soon
