Blogging in vain!

What, for heaven’s sake, does one have to do to get one’s blog read? My posts hitherto have not, I think, been badly written. Some have been mildly provocative, a few even (I hope) amusing; yet they are seen by only a handful – if that.

So what do I have to do? Write with bad grammar, eccentric spelling and no punctuation? Make outrageous statements about politics or religion (and run the risk of attack and abuse from fanatics with opposite views)? I’ve tried the odd photograph, without getting any reaction – which is perhaps not surprising if only three people see it. And I can’t bring myself to give a detailed account of what I had for breakfast.

Should I be wide-ranging in my topics, or should I specialise (sorry, USA – specialize) in some narrow field?

I feel like screaming “My blog is at least as interesting as thousands of others which seem to be well viewed. For God’s sake, you f***ers, come and have a look – and say something!”

But I suppose a cry for for help is pointless; no-one will read the bloody thing anyway.

    Don’t loose patience. You only started last November.I got a google pr3 only after 9 months. sometimes, it do feel lonely and the stats make it worse, but keep writing 🙂

    Well, I read i dude so atleast that’s something! Anyway, it’s always a problem getting other people to read your blogs. There’s so many around at the moment and I think, in all honesty, people prefer to write their own blogs rather than read others. It’s just the way things are unfortunately. 🙂

    Cute photographs of cats and kittens in unusual poses with amusing captions seems to be the trick.


    Using irony to analyse traits inherent to white people works too!

    Thanks for the encouragement, folks. Don’t have a cat, so I guess I’ll have to try irony.

    I, of course, looked up Isaiah Chapter 30 verse 8. Most appropriate!

    When the Government got into electronic surveillance, I took heart. At least someone was finally going to read my blog!
