If you have been blogging for any length of time, are you finding out who really cares about your blog?

Who are your regular visitors?

Are they your family?

Are they your friends?

Do your family and friends visit your blog on a regular basis? Leave comments?

This is what I have discovered……

1) None of my friends or family read this blog. They don’t care about blogging, and have no interest in learning. Some have “popped in” to see what my site looks like, but the content didn’t appeal to them…….visitors….never to be seen again.

2) My second site, Observation Mountain.com, is read regularly by two of my friends. They check it on a weekly basis, and catch up on what I’ve written. Occasionally, other friends and family will drop in, but they are not regular readers. Some will leave a comment, others won’t.

So…………….what I have found is that the majority of my readers on both blogs, are basically cyberspace strangers. Strangers who come to read what I have written.

Now I am developing a network of Blogging Buddies. I can count on my blogging buddies to visit me on a fairly regular basis. They leave comments and compliments. They are my cyberspace friends. They care. And for that, I am grateful.

With that being said, ……..Don’t write to please your friends and family. Write for the whole world. Your readers will come from all walks of life, and from all countries.

Welcome them with open arms.

Leave me a comment, and let me know who your visitors are.

    That is so true. My friends do not really come, and my brothers even have not visited the sites yet. Having said that, last year, when my friend set up a blog, I did not visit it. I was like “wow that is a scary thing she is doing”. Most of friends are still like that, too….

    Asako,

    Thank you for the comment, and your regular visits to my blog. I see you are moving right along with your Before They Hatch blog as well. Your site looks great, and your business ideas are wonderful.

    Keep up the great work.
