We are great believers in this notion: If you are incessantly preoccupied with your blogging stats you will fall further and further behind.
If you are completely engrossed with numbers from your blogging readership to your social media followings it takes away from the time and energy you need to spend perfecting your blog, resonating with your readership and bonding with your personal community. Essentially you’re robbing yourself of authoring the best blog you can.
The philosophy is simple: Forget the numbers and blog already! If you are overly absorbed in your numbers, you’ve already lost. It’s only when you let your passion shine through on your blog that you will truly become successful and you will see your blog stats increase.
Are you blogging because you love it and enjoy writing about that which you’re passionate? Or, do you experience an insatiable high when your stats rise and tumble into a dark pit of despair when your numbers plummet?
Remember, keep a keen eye on your priorities. If you don’t blog well because you’re fixated on your numbers, your stats will flatline or drop. Blog well and your stats will consistently rise. It’s the universal law of cause and effect.
Stick to the fundamentals. They will serve you well as you continue on your blogging journey.
