Don't Play The Numbers Game

I have more than one blog. This one is more of my "business" blog where I write about writing and blogging and related topics. One of my other blogs, The Priscilla Principle Blog, is more about my theological take on current events, book reviews and speaking out on things important to me.

My blogs don't have very many subscribers. The Priscilla Principle Blog has a total of 8 followers, but I get a decent number of readers each month, which is quite surprising compared to my number of subscribers.


As you can see from this snapshot of my stats, I get a lot more than 8 readers on that blog each month. Last month there were 1,100, but I've seen higher numbers.

That being said, I don't care. I showed this stat to illustrate that you can have many more views than subscribers. In the blogging world, these are very small numbers. Most professional bloggers see numbers much higher than these. I am small potatoes.

But, I don't care. I may look at the numbers from time to time, but I will blog with or without the numbers. I write because I need to write, so I will write whether my writing gets read or not. Don't play the numbers game; write for you.

Write often.
Write well.
Just write.
