No, I am not going to give advice. I am still learning the ropes myself. Part of learning them is looking for good teachers, other bloggers who stand out and are an example to others. I often look in on others, it is a rewarding job. Today I was really impressed by a blog written about blogging by someone called The Jittery Goat. One of those that I admire. He has had some novels published and his blogs are entertaining and you often find some gems of insight. Today was no exception and there was a blog that really gives food for thought.
I would really recommend reading this. Jiggery Goat explains his blogging path and highlights some very interesting facts
Like Jiggery Goat I also have many followers, although the actual amount is a mystery to me. According to the statistics that appear on my page I have 2,354 follows. According to the official WordPress statistics I have 1,568, so where are the missing 786 disciples. Probably only looked in for the thrill of the ride. Basically it is not so important. Of course it is nice to be followed, knowing that your writing does not disappear in the sinking sun of the blogging world. Also Jiggery Goat talks of Likes and its meaning of being a DNA print, been there, seen it. I am happy for all your likes, and especially happy for the comments. My visits per day are approximately 100, sometimes more and sometimes less. I remember in the beginning, when I could be satisfied to have 3-4 likes and visitors were almost zero
He also talks of linking, pingbacks which for me show that I see you have written something because I visited your page and if I receive a pingback it means I have had a visitor.
All I want to say is read what he writes. There is a great deal of common sense there. It impressed me and I will certainly be referring to the wise suggestions made in the final paragraphs
