When I started this blog almost a year ago, I publicized every post on facebook or twitter, and often on both. I got a lot of traffic, but my posting was not very frequent. In fact, the posting eventually came to a halt. Part of me didn't really know what to write. [A big] part of me just didn't have time to write (I was finishing grad school and planning a wedding, after all!). And part of me just forgot about the blog all together.
Since picking it back up, I've only advertised a few posts, but my posts have been significantly more consistent and frankly, just better. So, what's the difference? I think right now, I'm just busy blogging for no one. Don't get me wrong - I would eventually like to have consistent followers and input on the blog, but for now having just a few number of views each day gives me some breathing room.
I can play with the layout and design without being too concerned about someone seeing the "in progress" version and I can update and change the content often.
For those that are keeping up with our adventures - what are some blogs that you follow? What kinds of things would you like to see up here?
I plan to continue promoting this blog occasionally and will eventually determine more concretely what to focus on from a content standpoint, but for now - it's for no one. Except the faithful few. And I like it that way.
