On Nov 4 2007, Washington Post reporter Dan Zak wrote an article entitled “Be More than a Blip in the Blogosphere“. For any readers out there contemplating blog-dom this is a useful article to read. Following is the first paragraph:
“For a rookie blogger, there’s nothing more disheartening than seeing “0 COMMENTS” at the end of a six-day-old post. Or checking your traffic stats on SiteMeter and finding you’ve gotten only three page views that day: two from your mother and one from someone who was looking for nude photos of Jennifer Lopez and Googled his way to your post about knitting booties for your infant niece”.
That’s funny… and true. It is amazing how fast you get hooked on checking your Blog Stats page to see who has visited your blog, from where and what keywords they used to search. (It’s fun to have a blog.) Thanks to Elyssa for the heads-up on this news item.
And for all the Americans who read this blog, please have a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends! See you next week.
