While I was out on my trying to figure what is going on with my head, I have been trying for a good 25 years now, its the optimist in me that makes me think it is possible, I also read a couple of blogs and 2 main ones came to my attention and I can say that what they both said was true, the first one is Michael over at Michael’s Origins
he has done a couple which is worth having a look at recently
and it nicely leads on to Danny over at Dream Big Dream often who did this post
While I am never going to be able to do some of those how to blog posts. I personally do notice a difference in my general posting. Obviously if I dont post I get less vies, that is obvious but my best day was when I reblogged, I think 3 different posts. Now I am in no way saying you should reblog every single post you read, but if you really like it more than just pressing a button it is worth it and the one thing I learnt from Danny is to make sure you go in and edit the tags. I don’t know why this works but it does.
So this weekend I posted once, Danny very thougthfully reblogged me twice sometimes I get a massive view, sometimes I don’t but if I take out the views that wordpress says Danny sent over, I actually got very little traffic, which I do find interesting.
I might try a few other things to see if anything makes a difference but basically I have learnt I need to post to get views.
If you want proper good advice go and check both Michael and Danny who get why these things happen 🙂
