I know I get about 10-15 views for my "average" pages, and quite a few more for pages that I have patterns (especially linked to Ravelry). But I have 59 "followers". Why do people follow a blog if they don't read it? One-sixth of my "followers" read my blog regularly. I haven't had a comment since Oct 29. My most "commeted" month was January, and my post with the most comments? NO knitting/crocheting content at all :( All total, last year, I had 24 comments (including at least 4 that had nothing to do with knitting).
I write because I like to share knowledge and writing is an easy way to do that. It's a great record of what I've created, and hopefully inspires others.
But when you have very little confirmation that others find what you have to say to be of any value...it's really hard to keep going. At least, with my facebook page, I can get thumbs up (although pictures don't often show up in newsfeeds, and again, the number of real fans is quite low compared to how many likes you have). Maybe I need one of those little bars under the posts, where readers can click "like/funny/agree/learned something" etc. How do I do that?
On a positive note, my husband found a missing ball of sock yarn! I thought it might be in a suitcase pocket, but I guess I checked the wrong suitcase. I was so down about losing it since I had already started the socks, toe up, and was at the heels when I ran out.
