I don’t care about my stats anymore. I used to post twice a day for my stats, I used to relentlessly grind for my stats. And my reward? An arbitrary number of views a day, usually 50, and that was meant to make me content. But it didn’t. Because that’s not what I wanted. And it’s not what I want. I don’t want 10,000 casual followers, I want 200 regular followers.
Because in the end, nobody’s going to read quantity for the sake of quantity posts because Consequence of Sound, IGN and NME will do it ten thousand times better.
The same goes for music. I’d rather be a great obscure artist like Death Grips (not trying to say I’m anywhere near as good as Death Grips) then some insufferable mainstream semi mediocre sellout trash like Imagine Dragons.
There is one blogger who inspired me a lot with this decision, and that’s MisterAmazing. He has a YouTube channel with over 100,000 subscribers, but his blog has like 3 subscribers. When I first discovered his blog, I was thinking “Oh, cool, no one knows about this. But he should really have more subscribers”. Now when I look at his blog, I admire it, because even with only 3 followers, he produces quality content. And he doesn’t use SEO, featured images or tags because he doesn’t care about his stats. That’s probably the most admirable thing about it. He’s producing quality content for himself, not so 10,000 people can see it.
Now, I’m not going to do all that. But you can see not posting twice a day has had a profound impact on my stats:
I don’t care anymore though. So over time, you may see me making other statements against quantity content.
So for now,
Resist consumerist addiction and abritary numbers designed to suck you into a platform.
Oh, sorry, I meant,
