Bloggers beware: there is a tendency in our hobby of blogging to get caught up in the hype of statistics. How many views did I get? Likes? Reposts? Comments?
Yes, it gives me a warm fuzzy when my blog gets lots of traffic and positive feedback. But, is that the point of my writing? Not at all. I want to help others with my words. Lessen their pain, encourage them to go on and prosper.
So really, does it matter if I get 1,000 views or just one? As long as I spread encouragement to the one who needs it, the numbers don’t matter.
