4 Ways to Overcome the “Nobody’s Reading My Blog” Blues
by Jennifer Brown Banks
Blogs are a great way to brand your business and create a buzz about personal and professional agendas.
But, let’s face it; the R.O.I. (return on investment) can be a bit low in the beginning.
In my many years as a professional writer and relationship columnist, I’ve started several, gotten frustrated, lost the momentum, and decided to move on to bigger and better things. Then I would visit other sites, love the energy, read the success stories of how Blogs were turned to book deals, and well, have since reconsidered.
After all, it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind. Right?
Here’s the problem: because I enjoyed a pretty good “following” as a relationship columnist and feature writer, I expected to have as much traffic on my site as Chicago’s Eisenhower Expressway during rush hour! Wrong.
I would devote hours to choosing a hot topic, penning my thoughts, finding the perfect graphics, and see 0 “comments” posted for all my efforts.
This happened for several consecutive months. I started to call it quits, but much like a romantic relationship, I felt I was too far in to throw in the towel.
There would be nothing to show for my sweat equity.
So the strategist in me decided to work smarter, not harder this time.
I started visiting other sites with a mission. I wanted to know what was out there, how it compared to my online journal, and essentially what worked and what didn’t as a reader.
Here’s what I discovered and you will too. Even Blogs that have huge followings rarely have a lot of comments posted. Readers either don’t take the time to post their thoughts, don’t know how to register their comments, or don’t recognize the importance of their input.
In fact, the only way I knew folks were even reading my work is that my friends would call me on the phone or send Emails to tell me how much they enjoyed my posts. Go figure.
So, the next time you suffer from a bout of the “nobody’s reading my Blog blues”
here are a few things to keep in mind.
1. Recognize that success doesn’t come overnight. Blogging, even more so than any other form of writing, requires a lot of time and patience before it begins to bloom and take off.
2. Know that numbers can sometimes be deceiving. Have you ever gone on a diet? Most folks who have can tell you that the scale sometimes will show the same weight even though you’ve lost inches and your clothes are baggier. Pay less attention to the numbers and more attention to the needs of your readers.
3. Write with the right purpose. Rather than penning your way to popularity, use your adventures or misadventures in Blogging to become a better story teller, or to write tighter, or to develop ideas for editorial pieces. No writing done well is ever truly wasted!
4. Don’t get bogged in the Blog. Work on other projects that provide immediate gratification. Write a poem, do research, say hi to your Facebook friends. Like all areas in life, balance is important.
Follow these four tips and even if you don’t “win friends and influence people” your blogging blues might make you a hit song writer or the next American Idol!
You just never know where space travels can take you.
korang ada tak masalah ni:-
setiap yang korang buat atau nampak atau tengok atau anak2 korang buat atau cakap, korang rase nak tulis kat blog, tp selalu nye masa tak mengizinkan (untuk aku lah).. pastu dah jadik basi..
tu yang kadang2 aku buat entry merangkum satu minggu.. sampai juling lah orang nak baca..
Anne, my DH nak yang Man U tuh.. kasik can la cos my notebook ni sayang plak nak boh skin since kaler sudah merah menyala.. i loike...
|Fatini & Haziq yang lebih excited.. Haziq saje buat muka camtu-- muka 'antu' katanye..|
|that's the thing -- nicely folded|
|ni tangan Faris dok dlm carrier tu (hands-in). Sebab carrier tu besar/tinggi drpd dia.. okey jugak, cuma kepala dia je terteleng sana terteleng sini.. and kinda kesian sebab cam dagu/leher dia cam sangkut kat kain tuh (if u can understand wat i meant)|
|macam carriers yang lain, Faris saaaangat la comfortable sampai terlena...|
|tu namanye sleeping hood.. patut utk prevent drpd kepala terlentok ke belakang.. utk case Faris, hood tu agak besar utk dia plus dia pon cam dah dok dalam carrier tu, kepala dia sah takkan terbalik ke belakang...|
|"apalah mummy ni amik gambar cermin plak nih??"|
|"ehhh ada gamba Payish la dalam tu.. cenyum cenyum..."|
|antara barang2 yang ku beli... bantal tok letak dalam keta...|
|"Payish happy hari ni dapat jalan2.."|
|"uhh.. hausnya... sib baik ada air apple nih"|
|"iskk... barang kakak mana, mummy??"|
|pape pon, Payish paling happy sebab dia tak penat -- kena dukung all the way, sempat lena, makan kenyang.. he had dinner rice porridge + spinach at 8pm okehh...|
nanti aku buat entry compare these 2 carriers (MT vs SSC) okeh...
|mei tai - square body & 4 straps (2 chest straps and 2 shoulder straps)|
|dapat2 je terus try balik dari keje.. tak reti sangat, tp try je...|
|DH tal balik lagi, so kena amik gamba sendiri|
|but guess wat?? Faris terus lenaaa... comfy agaknye|
|masuk je dia lena terus.. memang la dia ngantuk tp maknanye dia selesa sangat lah dalam MT nih|
|ni lah hasilnye... rase makin mudah bila dah banyak kali practise|
|cam citer 'Oshin' tak??? tp rase dia 'low' sangat...|
|please please ignore my 'poyo'ness.. just focus on the cute baby :p|
|gamba blur utk sembunyikan kepoyoon aku di pagi hari ehh tp dah mandi tau hehhe|
|this is how it looks from the back.. wahhh never take pic of my back before ihikss|
|ni 'luka' nye... cuba perhati betul2 yang kat dahi tu-yang cam dot dot tuh... rase2 landing kat mana???|
|close-up but bit blur -- susah la nak amik gamba si kenit nih!|
|sisterly love... 2007|
|a proud Daddy of 3|
|Abang & adik |
|a proud Mummy of 2 boys + 1 girl, Thank u Allah... for the most precious gifts|
HaziQ = yang bijak...
date of birth: 14 February 2007 @ 0614H; birth weight: 3.29kg; normal SVD di PPUKM
dia memang sangat bijak & sangat keletah... (aku rase sape nama Haziq ni mmg banyak mulut lah)
kalau sape sanggup nak borak dgn dia, sila kan lah.. sebab once dia dah start berborak, sure tak terlayan...
he's a charmer... semua orang yang jumpe dia akan suka kan dia...
baik hati & pemurah... sangat considerate..
banyak excuses / pandai menjawab kalau kena marah, sampai tak jadik nak marah dibuatnye
anda akan 'cair' dengan sengih dia... pandai ambil hati orang.. walaupon macam tu, hatinye keras...
macam mummy dia hehehthat's my BOY!!! I love u, sayang.. mwahhsss
babywearing, RingSling, baby pouch, mei tai, soft structured carrier...
|jumpsacbaby RS with its matching bag|
|tried kat rumah -- look how comfortable he was..|
|macam minah indon kaa?? dont think so... mommy VOGUE adalah.. kan..|
|who says work & pleasure cannot mix??|
|guess what he was doing inside the RS?|
|a peep.. that what he was doing...|
|having his evening meal -- in KLIA express|
|sunbathing @ beach in Besut (forgot the name lah)|
