Riding the tiger

Writing a blog can be a frightening experience. You’ve got no idea where it’s going and whether you’ll have anything to say after a week or two. The open-ended nature of blogging is a bit daunting, but like doing a long trek, it’s best to take it a day at a time and not think about any destination. I’m not sure that I’ll be able to match John Hee’s  370 posts in 2007. My aim is one a day, but there are bound to be occasional fallow periods.

It is enjoyable to get your opinions “out there” and fun to have feedback from other readers/bloggers. Since I started at the end of November, I’ve had over 2,300 page views. The surge at the beginning has settled down to around 40-60 page views a day. My record was 227 on 28th November. I don’t know how many unique visitors I get a week. As long as a few people look at my blog and get some enjoyment, then it’s worth doing.

For those of you who don’t blog, please don’t underestimate the pleasure for bloggers of receiving comments. So if you can spare a few seconds and have something useful to contribute or some encouragement, it’s always worth leaving a message. If anyone out there is thinking of joining the fraternity, I can thoroughly recommend WordPress. It’s very well thought out and a doddle to use.

  1. here here about the feedback
    It’s always nice to know that someone gets value out of our witterings, or even has some insight to add, or better still see improvements along the way

  2. In many ways this is more fun than the OM forums and I would encourage anyone who considering blogging to give it a go. The worst you can do is run out of ideas! A pleasant surprise has been the positive tone of the comments.
