Blogging can drive us crazy if we let it.
We get one visitor, then we want two.
One comment, sale or ad click leads to wanting more.
Soon, more is never enough.
There’s a lot of talk in the blogosphere about visitor counts, page rank, subscriber counts, followers, blog revenues, SERPS (search engine result pages) and much more.
For some bloggers, these numbers matter.
However, if we get caught up in the numbers, blogging can begin to feel like a race; a competition.
Sometimes we’re competing with other bloggers, but oftentimes it’s an imaginary competition where we think if we don’t have big numbers, we’ve failed.
But what about the blogger who doesn’t want to be a star in the blogging world? Who doesn’t care about “the numbers” or making a name for themselves?
What about the blogger who just likes to write? To share? To publish their work online?
In some circles they might be labeled as a failure.
But, who cares?
If a blogger enjoys the process of blogging and isn’t interested in making money or gaining notoriety, that’s okay, too.
In the blogosphere, there’s room for everyone.
Are you concerned with getting more traffic? More subscribers? Making money?
Or, are you blogging for the pleasure of it?
Care to share?
