Is Blog Traffic Something That Takes Hard Work?

I’ve been blogging for around 8 years—3.5 on this blog.

I’ve tried many things to encourage folks to visit.

Most of them seemed extremely artificial…

I write the best content I possibly can—posts that have what I consider Value for the reader.

I don’t look at my Stats much anymore—just plugging away, saying what I feel I must say…


I thought it might be interesting to ask my readers what they’d like to see me do.

I’ve had many polls here—recently started a special Friday Poll—not for what I should post but other, more interesting topics.


This post will only succeed if I have a bunch of my 168 followers make a Comment—even very a brief Comment…

What direction do you wish I’d take on this blog?

Where Did You Come From?

If you’ve visited this blog between 12:01 am, EST, USA on 25 February, 2012 and 12:01 am on 7 February 2013, then you’re represented in the graphic in this post

I periodically do this, hoping that my readers will share their feelings about the global distribution of the traffic passing through this Space—the table shows “Views” by folks who may only stay for a few seconds

Of course, they may return and linger :-)

So, if you see any patterns or intuit any rationale in the numbers, please let me know in the Comments.
