I still have a great love for numbers and find myself to still be a very competitive person, but when it comes to my blog; I just no longer care. I don’t have the time to check and see if I hit 1800 unique hits in a day or not. What does it matter in the end anyways. Nada!
My kids are what matter and saving that time that it took to look up every other stat page, has given me more time to be outside with them enjoying life. I’ve also had a lot more time to go and visit other bloggers. I’ve even had more fun reading everyone else’s posts than writing my own, which to me says I’m suffering from severe blogger burnout.
I look at the bloggers that are considered highly influential and I’m actually reading their blogs now. What is the difference between theirs and mine. They don’t write a gazillion posts every day. They write one or two. That’s why companies are working so hard to get on their blogs. That one post is more valuable because how can my readers comment on 3 posts a day. They can’t! They won’t.
I’ve been liberated! I’m free! I no longer care how I compare number wise. My new goal is to concentrate on content. Yes, I will still have giveaways all the time. I just love to give stuff away. I’m just enjoying me, my kids and plan on enjoying writing again. Zoe is going to preschool next year and I’m going to miss that time with her, so I have to stop taking my kids for granted, stop taking my time for granted and be present and live in the moment.
