Recently I have started noticing how the views of my blog have been dropping drastically. Let me share the stats with you:
- Number of views in January -366
- Number of views in February-204
- Number of views in March-62
- Average views per day in January-12
- Average views per day in February-7
- Average views per day in March-2
What could be the reason for the fall in my views?
A big blunder that I did with my blog was that I made it private for more than a week (Thank gods, I was actually going to delete it but I didn’t.) because I was bored with it and wanted to make a new blog. This is the first reason.
The second reason being my long absence from blogging for a month since I had exams going on.
The third reason I guess is that I have been very active in the month of January. No, not by posting but by following blogs and liking posts. Now I am very inactive. Basically this makes other bloggers unaware of my presence and this ultimately resulting in them being oblivious of my blog.
The fourth reason is again a guess. I suppose that you readers find my content not very interesting. But then again, in January I don’t think that what I posted had great content so the fourth reason being true is tenuous.
I have noticed the drop in the views before but today I felt bad. I thought my blog was dying. Then I questioned myself ‘can my blog really die just because it is getting less views?’ No definitely not. I pointed out to myself that I started this blog for myself, not for the views.
And also, readers surely are an integral part of blogging because there are the ones who give you the much needed strength to continue blogging. But a blogger alone has that unrivalled power to kill their blog. No matter what the views, at the end of the day, it’s all in the hands of the blogger whether to continue blogging or not.
So is my blog dying?
No, absolutely not. I don’t plan on killing my blog anytime soon.
