Why do we blog?
Well I don't know why You blog, but I blog for many reasons and yes I'll be honest and say it's also for exposure for my novels. Though that's not all it is about. I like to share, I'm a sharer. lol.
I share other peoples news and I share my own. I share promotions and announcements and practically anything I want to verbally vomit into the world wide web. But the funny thing is the world is ever changing.
When I fist started blogging maybe a couple of years ago almost, people commented all the time. Facebook wasn't huge and twitter was only for the famous. Now, I rarely see a comment, but because I feed my blog to my facebook I recieve plenty of comments there.
So this being said-is blogging a dinosaur act of technology and exposure now?
I say no.
Although I don't see many comments here I do see the traffic and holy cow is there traffic. average 40-80 visits a day lately from all over the world. Now tell me blogging isn't worth it any more.
I know where they come from and not just the country, but also from what site fed them to me and what computer program they used.
I know I still read plenty of blogs, I love reviews and tangents and general news. Oh and let's not forget the How To blogs, how many times have I used those in my writing career.
So all in all, just because you don't see comments at the end of peoples blogs doesn't mean what they have to say isn't awesome ;)
But I will say this, I mean to keep blogging and damn it, I am going to make you keep reading them because I like to share.
