How to know what we write in our blog articles are worth reading?
Does the answer depend upon the number of ‘likes’ or number of ‘comments’?
Many said that they spend so much of their daily life putting all their writing skill even at the cost of their sleep and food and a lot of hours spent in the research process on the internet…yet nobody notices their presence.
Some even grumbled that their family life is ruined because they are addicted to blogging, waiting for the people to appreciate their work.
Feelings I get after reading many comments from a variety of people on different blog posts of others
Some felt that the substandard posts are getting an enormous response in the form of ‘comment’ or ‘likes’.
Some question, as to who decides the standards of writing or quality content of the post?
What exactly ‘content is the king’ philosophy?
Some even went further and said that most of the ‘likes’ are nothing but…you scratch my back then I scratch your back philosophy.
Many of you may agree that ‘Likes’ are just a gentle reminder that hey, I clicked a ‘like’ for your post and don’t forget to return the favour!! or else…
A few even felt that blog reading is possible if one doesn’t cross 2 or 3 scrolls.
It’s also true that we do come across genuine ‘likes’ and friendly ‘comments’ and I am indeed fortunate in this regard.
So ultimately it boils down to who is writing for whom? or
Simply one writes for oneself? Or
Who is finding all the time available to read your story?
Some said that they read the post from top to bottom only if the post resonates with them.
How to reach such similar minded people from the crowd?
Many think that the number of ‘similar thinking people’ is too less.
Over the three years of my blogging career, I did a little bit of research and realized that Just less than 1% of your followers will respond to your blog posts either by ‘liking’ or ‘commenting’. I know that they are genuine and I love these people.
Where are the rest? I don’t know.
There may be thousands of reasons.
After all we are humans busy in our own way.
So coming back to the place where we left earlier…
Who is writing for whom?
Who is reading for whom?
I am confused.
Maybe I am abnormally normal or normally abnormal.
The choice is yours.
These thoughts cropped in my mind thanks to one very learned and good friend of mine by the name Pendantry, a specialist in Phlyarology.
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
Do you write blog because you enjoy writing or do you write blog because you want others to read your stuff or both?
Do you really spend many many hours to prepare a post as some expressed in the comment section?
Please share your thoughts, and please give me your frank opinion.
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
