One of our regulars, Debbie, asked me this question in a comment – why isn’t this blog bigger?
Well, I don’t actively seek to make it bigger.
I figure the right people will land here when they’re meant to land here. I’m taking a PGS approach to this. If their PGS brings them here, and tells them it’s right for them, then terrific. Similarly, there might be some who check out this blog and it doesn’t call to them. And so they go away. That’s okay too.
This blog is not to everyone’s tastes, I’m sure!
I don’t tag my posts, nor do I employ Search Optimisation techniques to drive traffic to this site. Occasionally I post on Ivar’s forum, when a milestone is reached. I did that yesterday, in his “Blogs and Photos” forum, to let them know we’d clicked over the 100K mark.
But other than that, I take the view that people will find us when they need to find us.
Also, my grand plan for this blog isn’t to get a huge traffic flow then put up advertising. No way. In fact I don’t have a grand plan. I just write here each day, and hope that every now and then something I write about has some relevance.
