As you people know, there’s something called the ‘WordPress.com stats helper monkeys’, which publishes a post about how your blog has been going over the past year. For the past 30 minutes, I’ve been trying to get my blog reviewed and have failed. Probably because my blog is less than a year old. Or maybe because it doesn’t have enough views. So I decided to write the review myself.
This blog, which was created to be a personal output site, has been just that. I have written posts without a lot of pretence, which I would have never done in my previous blogs. They were all about being cool, and not spontaneity. Here, I have written more honestly, or so I believe.
Being more honest, the blog is certainly meant for a smaller number of viewers. I lost touch with most of the people from my previous blogging groups. However, a blogging group, where every member reads the blogs of all the others, is one of the most important needs of any blogger. It gives a blogger the much needed “reason to write” by providing an interested audience. Hence logically, I’m a little bummed about the lack of a variety of audiences at this moment. But gone are the days where my ego would permit me to mass-spam my bloglink and ask people to read my posts.
Still, I have about 5 regular readers, which is kinda nice. Once in a while new interesting people show up too. Here’s an incident: in September, I received a mail from a blogger confirming my shortcoming regarding changing subjects during narrating. She had been kind enough to suggest some ways of improvement, too.
Overall, this blog has turned out like a personal diary, except it’s not personal. There are stuff which I want you to read and stuff which I don’t, i.e. unless you’re ready to get bored. There aren’t many readable posts here as of now, but I intend to keep this site for a long time, and things will eventually come up.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys did not prepare a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
“A Kanchrapara Bus with a seat capacity of 35 carries 75 people. This blog was viewed about 2,000 times since July 2011. If it were a Kanchrapara Bus, it would take about 27 trips to carry that many people.”
