Almost all blogs that I chance upon who happen to touch on the topic mention how much the bloggers enjoy writing because of the interactions their blogs allow them to have with their readers. This got me to thinking. How does having readers affect your blogging?
How does knowing that the words you published are seen by others affect the creativity or dedication that you put into penning those words? How does not having as many readers as you would like influence your writing? Are you discouraged when nobody comes by your blog? Are your spirits lifted by those who do come? Do you not care? Do you effect not caring? Do you take steps to discourage people from coming, e.g. marking your blogs as private or writing particularly unwelcoming “About” pages? What do you do?
Pray do tell.
