How do you judge the success of a blog piece? I’m being serious. I don’t know. That’s why I’m asking. It’s fine to ask questions, don’t be afraid to do so. As long as they’re intelligent and related to the subject at hand. This is a question I would think many bloggers have. I’ve had my blog since the end of May 2015, not even a full year. My main goal was to grow my blog in views and followers. There’s another key category, likes. Which brings about a level of confusion. It also brings up more questions. Which category matters more, views or likes?
People without a WordPress account can’t click the like button, or make comments. To add to the confusion, WordPress doesn’t count views correctly. I know they don’t. I’ve posted plenty of pieces with many, many more likes than views. How does that work? How can you like something you haven’t viewed?
I ask not so I can give an answer, but with the purpose of receiving one. Actually, more than one. An answer from as many of my fellow bloggers as possible. This is a universal question, and they don’t have a single definitive answer. They’re subjective by nature. I ask this question not only for myself, but for everyone with the purpose of starting a discussion. Each person has their own answer and knows what works best for them. For the people like me who aren’t sure which way the answer lies, we might be able to find a direction.
