Acck! When I got up this morning and looked at my stats on WordPress there was a flat line of zero’s across the page! Such a sad, sad sight to see. 😦
It happens sometimes and it’s all my fault. I take the blame! I haven’t been keeping to my schedule. Too few new posts, not tweeting on twitter, not reposting my link to Facebook very often, not reading and commenting on other blogs for days at a time, thus, not building my empire! Why should I be surprised?
So much to do and so little time! That’s what happens folks when you get caught up in other things and let WordPress fall to the back of your mind. You have consistently post with fresh content to keep those stats up and to keep your readers interested. After all they will only go back so far to read your earlier posts and no more. You can’t expect much more from them than that.
My regular blogging schedule is to post Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with Wednesday being my #reblogwednesday. On a good week I also post on Tuesday and Thursdays, but hardly ever on weekends.
I don’t think I even posted anything last Friday. That’s not good. I’ve got a lot of drafts started and just need to find the block of time to finish them up so I can schedule. How I envy those who post consistently every day come hell or high water!
But wait! Don’t leave me now. I have a legitimate excuse. Don’t we all? H is off for spring break – a whole week! We are having beautiful beach weather and I’m taking it easy.
Now, as I am writing this I notice my stats have started to rise and that’s because I have posted my re-blog for #reblogwednesday. Sometimes it’s up. Sometimes it’s down. Sometimes it’s flat liners. Bottom line is – it’s all in the way you post!
