Slumber blogging

It’s been a bit slumber on my part when it comes to blogging. Well, 7 days isn’t much of a break. It feels that I’ve already said everything I wanted here. Some days just are lazier than others. You can’t write a blog post properly if you slumber because then you get nothing done. Well, you can, but it won’t make any sense. I don’t slumber at the moment, but still, this post might look like it. You be the judge. This makes sense, or it doesn’t.

I can’t force inspiration to just pop up in my head. That goes with almost everything creative. I can slumber if I’m bored or when things don’t interest me. Or if I haven’t slept enough. Blogging is like driving a car. You shouldn’t do it if you’re tired or even slumber. You should have energy and have the feeling to do it. If you don’t, you should do something else instead. I have a few writing projects going on at the same time. It’s because I want a change from time to time.

When you see tips about writing a blog post, they say it shouldn’t be too short. It depends on what kind of blog you have. I don’t like reading long posts. They make me slumber. If the posts are interesting, then I might not. I don’t even like to read long articles. I just look through them. I might start to read them, but then I read something else if it’s not interesting enough. I especially dislike reading articles where you have to search for what is said in the title. Blog posts and articles of news are different things. I might read the whole blog post, but not when it comes to an article.

My blogging has been a little slumber this year. I have written 11 posts this year. A year before, I had written 18 posts. That’s how it goes. I hope no one of you feels slumber when you read this blog. I can understand if you do because that’s what I feel sometimes. A night of good night sleep is good medicine for that—so sweet dreams.

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,700 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Thank you all for 2014. See ya in 2015.

Blogging 201 (day 5): Give ‘Em what they want

Like in the Pet shop boys song I Don’t Know What You Want but I Can’t Give It Any More

Looking at my stats, the most viewed post of all time is this. Others are writing challenges. What I write by my ‘own devices’ seems to lack viewers. Even though if they have readers (viewers) But challenges has helped me get my blog out there (where ever that is) If people read this blog or not, that I don’t know. When I started blogging, I looked at the stats more seriously. But now they are just guidelines to me. So far the stats has improved. I’m not reaching for the stars so even a small group is welcomed.

From the starts, the blog has only been about things I like and it will remain so. Personal things seem to be an ‘In’ thing these days. But I won’t go there. Maybe once in a while I might go a little deeper to my soul a.k.a personal things. I want to write about things I want to write about, not because it’s popular.

My stats say Thursdays and Fridays are the busiest. So according to that I should only post on those days if I want traffic? No thanks, my ideas come every day of the week. My mind doesn’t work on schedule.

So like Pet Shop Boys, I don’t know what you want but I can’t give it anymore. But what I can give you, is a peak in my world. You’re welcome to stay.
