When I was in high school, I must admit that I wished I was more popular. I wished that everyone knew who I was and I had a lot of friends. It turns out that many times, I had friends because I was very studious. And because I was so studious, I was voted Most Studious. Funny, eh?
Now that I’m older and in the real world, I’m finding that though I like my privacy, I also want people to see my photos and read my blog posts. I love meeting new people and talking to new people because you can always learn something from someone. So, it seems that now that I have set up my blog and my web identity, so to speak, I am craving attention. I would love to have more people visit my blog, but in order to do that, I have to find out how to drive more traffic to my blog.
I suppose I can use Twitter to help, but I seem to have a small following there as well. I don’t have a billion followers, but then again, I’m not following a billion people either. I suppose I can change that and see how that works, but what is the point in just following so many people and not really connecting to them? Isn’t the point of Twitter is to start a conversation? I still really haven’t had much of a conversation yet. Anyone wanna try? Tweet me!
I’ve also heard that in order to get more traffic, you need to visit more sites and comment on other blogs. I’m working on that. I have started surfing and looking around to find new and interesting blogs to read.
All of this traffic-driving is a work in progress. I’m sure I’ll come back and let you all know how it’s going. Hopefully, I’ll have more of an audience next time.
