When I started Pintucked, I told myself I wouldn’t focus on my numbers. Readers, RSS subscribers, that’s all just statistics. I was writing because I want to and I enjoy it. Still, I set up StatCounter and Feedburner to give me an idea how I was doing. (I also used Feedburner for email updates.)
Stuff About Cats was created a month before AmyNievera.Com. When I went to create the Feedburner feed for this site, I noticed Stuff About Cats had 3 subscribers. After I started advertising AmyNievera.Com, I checked Feedburner again.
Do you see what I see? Obviously, people like cats more than they like me and they like me and my cats a hell of a lot more than they like my style. That or I’m not a very good fashion writer. Either way? The message is: Amy, you suck!
But that’s okay. I acknowledge my lack of true, innovative fashion. I acknowledge my fairly crappy posts. I acknowledge I need to change how I deal with Pintucked. I think I know how. I don’t know if you’ll like it but I think I will.
Meanwhile, share your blog’s numbers. How many subscribers and how long did it take to reach this number? Would you do anything differently?
