Over the last few months I’ve become less and less interested in the statistics of my site. I’m really pleased that month by month I’m seeing an increase in visits but I’d gotten to the point I was checking it obsessively.
What I’ve found is that now I’ve taken a step back I’m writing more. Yes, my posts are more micro than long form so I shouldn’t have an excuse not to post more anyway but I’m genuinely feeling less pressure on myself and writing more of what I want.
I’m not looking at trends or what my top posts are, I’m just writing.
Give it a go for a few months and see how your relationship with your blog changes.
