Earlier this year I had a severe attack of vertigo which landed me in the hospital and pretty much put me out of commission for several months. So my blog, The Curmudgeonly Professor, went untended. Before the lapse, I was averaging about 180-200 page views per day. After trying to resurrect the blog after a lapse of several months, I've been struggling to get 50 page views per day and often lower than that. I've really been working to try and get my content back up to snuff and to get the thing moving again but it's been really slow and hard to recapture my audience. So here are the options:
- Bag the whole thing and spend my time watching Netflix movies and Hallmark reruns.
- Post once in awhile and care less about whether the blog is living or dying.
- Keep working at it and hope that the recalcitrant and wandering viewers find their way back so that my efforts seem worth while.
Blogging is a lot of work, either when writing or posting pictures. Taking and editing and uploading photos takes a lot of time to post something that viewers can whiz over in just a few seconds. So I guess I will soldier on and see what happens. I would really appreciate comments on what you are looking at, what you like and don't like, and your reactions to some of the thousands of photos that I post. Plus, if you have something you want me to post, send me an email with an attachment for the photo and I'll take a look at it. Thanks to all who have stayed with me. The not-so-Curmdgeonly Professor.
