This blog is the first blog I have ever made, and perhaps the last. I’ve been less enthusiastic about writing it lately, but that is probably because I haven’t watched any politically incorrect films lately that would inspire me to write on here.
Another reason why I am not inspired to write more blog posts is the small audience that my blog has. I’ve only received 392 views for all of my posts since I started last September.
That is a shitty number.
Piss poor audiences result a low number of comments, which gives me little insight into the quality of my posts.
I know some of my posts vary in quality but I want to know what readers think about my posts and my blog in general. Receiving little to no feedback on my posts has caused me to care considerably less about writing here. This sucks because, I was excited to write (and rant) about something I’m interested in.
This is one of the great things about blogs. They tend to be personal and focused, which allow for readers to come across a wide variety of niche subjects and interesting personalities online. Within the CreComm Blog Network for Red River College, there are blogs on many obscure subjects, like rants, content marketing, and even “over-analyzing Jeff Goldblum.”
The personal, often subjective nature of blogging is highly appealing to casual writers who are interested in writing things online that could not get published anywhere else.
Tumblr currently has 287 million blogs, with 131.7 blog posts, according to its website (read more stats at https://www.tumblr.com/about). That’s a lot of writing, which shows you that blogs do matter. They matter to writers.
But how about readers. Do they care about niche subjects? Perhaps, if they are well written, focused, and the writers are committed to consistently churning out quality writing.
I personally will stick to podcasts, mainly because they can be extremely funny.
Here’s a hilarious, politically incorrect bit from an old Norm Macdonald podcast.
