Two weeks after I first decided to blog my whizzy wordpress stats tell me that I’ve had 278 views! I find this hard to imagine but am happy enough with that. My busiest day was a Sunday when I first started and I had almost half of my total visits that day (118). So what I hear you say…so what is right, but despite 278 views, I’ve only had nine comments.
That’s right….NINE comments, that’s 3% of my visitors. So just as I was about to get indignant I realised that I’ve been reading blogs for years and have only ever commented on three! Those belonging to @rufflemuffin, @fergusbisset and @amcunningham as it happens, all people who I follow on twitter and all people who I feel like I have already got a dialogue with.
So I guess I’m going to now engage in the most pointless thing I’ve done in a while…ask on here why people don’t comment 😉 Ahh the irony. No seriously, if you are reading this (and I know someone, somewhere is) then please let me know your thoughts, either here or over on twitter @georgejulian as to whether there is anything I can do to improve my rants or to get a conversation going with you 🙂
Failing that go leave a comment on someone else’s blog – really – it makes it so much easier to bother to do this stuff when you know someone is vaguely interested.
