10 Reasons my blog isn’t popular

  1. My version of ’10 Productivity Tips’ would be ‘pick a system and use it, stop wasting time picking a system, most people just need a list of things that need done that day’.

  2. I write about me. My thoughts, my life. Narcissism central round here.

  3. I don’t stick to one topic. When I’m not writing about me, I write about software I use, or movies, and by god I write about writing a lot of the time. Essentially this blog is a censored diary that I happen to publish on the internet.

  4. I don’t actually know WHY I keep doing this, and so I plod on just posting stuff to have stuff posted.

  5. I don’t post amazing examples of photography.

  6. I don’t (anymore) post reviews of gigs, or books, or movies.

  7. I rarely write about things that might be useful to others – Todoist, Podcasts, iTunes stuttering etc.

  8. I create blog posts that are just lists in an effort to pad things out.

  9. More reasons I can’t really be arsed to figure out at the moment.

  10. There is no number 10, didn’t you read number 9?

I’m sure there are other reasons, but that’s all I could come up with.

    I don’t know how many readers you call ‘popular’, but I like your blog and have read it for years. I confess that I sometimes read on a feed reader and I don’t always click through to links; also that I don’t have time to read blogs every day now and sometimes have a lot to catch up on, which is one reason I don’t comment as much as I used to. I do find that if I leave comments on a number of blogs, I get more people reading mine in the next couple of days, even though I have a lot fewer comments nowadays. I’m afraid personal blogging is, on the whole, in the doldrums nowadays, but almost everyone I know who has given up says they miss it.
