A friend of mine started a blog about six months ago, and when I talked to him about it back then, he was so excited to get going. When I saw him again last week, I asked him how it was all progressing. He told me that he spent a lot of time writing two articles which a total of 8 people read (not including his family). He was so discouraged by the pageviews that he decided not to pursue blogging anymore. He decided it just wasn’t worth his time.
It’s easy to feel lost in the world of blogging sometimes, especially if you are a new blogger. It can feel like everyone around you already has an established blog. If you have been blogging a while, you’ve probably already learned the idea that “if you build it, they will come” doesn’t always hold true. Sure, if you write some really powerful stuff, you will attract some new visitors from time to time, but if you want to build a more consistent, steadily-increasing blog following, it requires being proactive about getting your blog out there where people can find it quickly and easily.
What I’m describing is really the intersection of blogging and marketing. Does that mean in order to have a popular blog, you not only have to be a writer but also a marketer? I could argue both sides of that, but overall, I would say the answer is yes. For some people, pageviews don’t matter much and blogging is more of an introspective inspirational endeavor. However, if pageviews matter to you, it’s important to learn how to attract them from lots of different sources, or at least that is my experience from writing over 2,700 articles here on Bit Rebels.
