Page views are a massive part of blogging to be honest, that isn’t me just putting it mildly either. When it comes to working with brands they want to know the ins and outs of your stats and that is natural, but it also puts some serious pressure on you to make sure that your stats are good. Having lots of page views is a fantastic feeling, mainly because you think wow someone is actually reading my blog and enjoying what I’m writing, lately however, I’m making myself understand that page views aren’t everything. So why have I stopped worrying about page views?
I write for me.
The reason that I started blogging in the first place is because I wanted an outlet for myself, and that is exactly what I have found, somewhere I can be myself, write what I like and meet new people who share similar views.
There is more to blogging than just page views.
Honestly there is, your blogging journey isn’t all about page views, it helps when it comes to working with brands but you shouldn’t write just to get good page views, it defeats the object and also you forget the true reason you started in the first place.
Quality over quantity
When it comes to my content I always try my best to be consistent, mainly because I bulk write to stay on top of it, but not everyone can do that. If you don’t post for like 2 weeks and your page views are down, don’t worry about it, you don’t want to post just for the sake of it!
Your worth isn’t defined by a number
We are incredible bloggers that work really hard, why should a number define whether or not we are good enough, because let’s be honest we are fantastic just the way we are!
Write what you love
When it comes blogging you should always write what you love, and that is one of the reasons that I have stopped worrying about page views. If people relate to what I write then views will come. I’m not forcing it.
High blog views take time to build
If you’ve just started a blog it doesn’t mean that you’re going to get 1000 page views in just 1 day, it doesn’t work like that. It takes hard work and time.
Overall I’ve decided that it’s more important for me to do what I love rather than anything else, I love blogging and it’s something that has helped me to learn more about myself, I’m not going to worry any more about page views.
