One of my longest FB acquaintance, Doug, is agonizing over lack of blog readership recently and I just have to share my sentiments as to why.
“As a long-time WordPress resident, I’ve repeatedly observed how even the most popular bloggers lose their followers, one by one, over time — and the reason is seldom personal. Either the readers also obtained struggles of their own or became preoccupied with other pressing matters.
Typical to the grounds why highly-beloved TV shows get cancelled eventually. People’s interest understandably drifts off, not to mention their tastes keep evolving. But it’s hardly a reflection of the artist’s excellent skill.
I forgot to attribute the fair amount of camaraderie between those WordPress bloggers and their remaining followers. A two-way street, to boot, nonetheless.”
