So, seems there are a number of milestones I have almost hit with my blog after some experimentation this month. I upped my outputs, introducing a couple of daily themed limericks and haiku and then looked to do at least one fiction piece and one challenge piece each day also and it has certainly kept me busy and given me the chance to write some different pieces.
I fiddled around with timings to see how and when they would get the best coverage and when I had a look today it seems I’ve doubled or tripled the views, likes, visitors and comments from month 1 to month 3.
I don’t think I like it though.
All seemed rather planned and thought out and it became something of a burden so I won’t be doing that anymore. I think I shall simply return to writing whenever I can and publishing it in the evening. Nice and simple, no compulsion to have to produce anything for any when.
I think I might write a little less too. Not that I don’t enjoy it I do – very much – but I think I need a bit more balance. This last month I have churned out a stack of stuff on all manner of things as I have really been enjoying the writing but it has got in the way of life and that just won’t do.
Looking back at some of the stuff I have written I think perhaps I might try focus a little more on a few of the pieces I’ve started but never finished and to try and be a bit more disciplined when it comes to finishing things before I head off on another tangent. I am certain I have quite a few ‘Part 1’ pieces on the blog somewhere that deserve a little attention.
On the plus side, I’m rather chuffed that I have done nearly 200 pieces and had more than 2000 visitors. who have liked my work plenty. Feels great to be able to connect with people who follow my stuff regularly and next week I am guest blogger for someone that’s been following me from early doors which I am looking forward to immensely.
I had always said to myself that I would give it a couple of months to see whether I could write a bit and whether I liked blogging and I think on the whole I do, so I think I will keep doing it.
I still have too many limericks about Donald Trump inside to stop now, and thanks for all of your support!
