Whoever claims that all people should write blogs should closely analyze their current commitments. Writing a blog is time-consuming and demanding.
With the billions of people on the internet you might assume that you will have widespread viewership, yet you will probably only have 9 daily views – 8 of which are you re-reading your posts.
I have currently written 20 posts and accumulated 60 comments. 3 comments per post isn’t too bad, but I have also had 314 spam comments and 30 malicious login attempts. Yeah, writing a blog can be fun, but having spammers constantly linking to pornography websites is not so fun.
Therefore, I am opening up the books to display the Quarter 1 numbers for this blog – OK people with an MBA, these are actually stats from February 1 until today.
The above graphic shows users to this website between February 1 and today. On February 1, I was averaging 11 views per day. The breakdown was usually comprised of my Grandma, me re-reading my latest post 7 times, and 3 views from Sau Paulo, Brazil. The peak in the graphic (1,131 views) is where Bob Borson accidentally added me to his annual Best Architectural Websites list.
At first you might assume that nobody in Wyoming must care about architecture. But then a quick population search reveals nobody actually lives in Wyoming – and wolves do not yet have access to broadband internet.
