How I Went from 558 views to 97 in One Month

Hey everyone.

I guess I sort of took a very unexpected hiatus, huh?

I want to start profusely apologizing but I’m not sure it really matters. No one likes excuses. I definitely don’t think I hurt anyone’s view count, at least I hope I didn’t. I’m not sure I have enough followers yet to where people are keeping an eye out for my posts. If anyone was, I’m sorry for that also.

In February, I had 558 views! The most I’ve had since I started up in November of last year. Even though I was unbelievably proud of myself, I didn’t know what to do next. None of my content that I had been saving to post seemed good enough to share. I didn’t really have any great ideas of anything new to write.

I had great news to share, an engagement! But I didn’t know how to make a post about it without sounding ‘rant-y’. Then, the longer making a post explaining my absence was on my to-do list, the longer I avoided it. Can you tell that I run away from my stress and responsibilities when I’m not sure what to do?

Anyway, in March I went down to a whopping 97 views. From not posting anything at all. I think there’s a lot that can be learned from this:

  1. Even if what you’re posting isn’t your best work, it’s probably better than not posting anything at all.
  2. Don’t run away from your problems! You can still take a break, though.
  3. If you use writing as an emotional outlet for when you’re depressed, you’re gonna have less content when you’re happy. And that’s GREAT! If I lose views because I’m out enjoying life, that’s wonderful. Hopefully soon I’ll learn how to enjoy life and be consistent but for now, I’m a one-thing-at-a-time kinda girl ;).

I’m not necessarily unhappy now but I definitely am feeling an ounce of motivation to make some positive life changes, so I’m riding the wave and taking advantage before the energy leaves me!

I hope everyone reading this has a great weekend and can forgive me for being the terrible blog writer that I’ve been. I’m still kinda just wingin’ it.

  1. Congrats on the engagement! In terms of views, yeah, your views will increase if you’re posting more often, but you’re probably best off doing what feels right for you rather than guessing what might work best for others.
