I'm a little baffled by the concept of followers. I've watched my follower count go up by about an average of 5 a day, and I'm approaching 140 now by the end of my second month. I thought that was pretty good. Yet, this has appears to have almost no bearing on my views counts, if referral traffic is anything to go by.
I do have a small steady group that almost always pop by to view my posts, and some people clearly enjoy them, but about 90% of those followers are no shows.
Today I finally fell off a cliff in terms of views. I can't blame it on today's post, as hardly anyone has viewed it, and I can't blame it on yesterday's post, as plenty of people viewed it and apparently enjoyed it.
So even though I enjoy writing for the sake of it, it's discouraging to think you had a steady growing audience only to find it was just a mirage.
Very sad, Woe is me. Maybe it's just a weird, off day. Maybe I need to stop worrying and just keep writing, but it's tempting just to switch the follow widget off.
The blog I need help with is theuglymoose.wordpress.com.
