First of all, I’ll let you in on a little secret: my first blog died a premature death, after only one month of life, five followers and absolutely no comments whatsoever.
Why is this important?
Well, maybe because the focus is not to be put on numbers.
Put too much emphasis on numbers, and you won’t have such a nice time blogging.
You kind of miss the point.
What’s the point, you ask?
Behind those numbers, there are people. Crazy, huh? Actual people, who actually read your stuff, who actually take the time to like or comment on your stuff. You wants thousands upon thousands of people who do that?
Ask yourself that.
Why is it so important to reach a thousand people? Why is it more important than reaching a hundred? Or just ten?
This numbers game is just that. A game. A rat race.
