Lisamm, who just commented on two of my own blog entries, is asking about blogging:How to Increase Your Blog Hits « Books on the Brain
Blogging is new to me. I haven’t learned the lingo. I don’t know the etiquette. I don’t know what a meme is (Do I want one? Do I need one? Is it fattening?) What is the deal with bloggers giving other bloggers awards? No one has challenged me, or tagged me, or whatever it is people do. I’m totally winging it.Someone told me recently that I could increase my blog hits with an intriguing title on my entries. Hmmmm. This one might get noticed. I guess we’ll see how it works.Speaking of blog hits, I seem to be getting a lot (I guess). What is a lot? How many do other people get?What is up with my obsessive desire to check my stats? How I love to see the blog stat graph go up, up, up. Is this normal? Why do I care? Do other bloggers do that? Will the obsession wear off soon????Experienced bloggers, I would love to hear from you. I’m hoping my insanity is only temporary.

Thanks a lot for your comment! And I happen to think that your attitude is sane. 😉
[Strangely enough, you’re the second WordPress.com blogger to leave a comment on my blog today without your blog’s URL being included with your comment. Usually, once you’re logged in as a WordPress.com user, everything is included with comments you post (name, blog link, profile picture). So there might be a problem on WordPress.com today. I’m adding your blog link, assuming it’s fine with you.]
Well, if I will only blog to see my stats going up I will be very disappointed as my traffic is pretty low, I am new to this….I try not to stress out over hits and I really don’t want to blog only to impress either…I go with what inspire me the most at the moment and it is the same principle when I reply to posts…I go with the flow and in my opinion it is not mandatory neither to post nor to reply…
Thanks for ur thoughts about blogging and ur summarized lessons on Facebook VS Blogs…
