Page views… Blog stats… The graph going up and down… I love ’em, I hate ’em. Confused? Don’t ask me to explain… Well don’t… Oh ok… fine…
There was a time, when I used to blog about things that really mattered to me – my life. What happened in my life. What I read, what I think… etc. It was completely satisfying when I used to get about 3 hits a day. I have come 50 times that. Then I talked with Harsh. He told me about monetizing blogs and I got crazy. It led me to a hit maniac. I started checking my hits every 5 minutes. I made a small program. It just checks how many times I have pressed what key – something like a key logger. I completely forgot about it…
Today, I just checked the log file that it has created. I have pressed the F5 key about 20,000 times. 😮 I am shocked and apalled. I have gone crazy. It roughly comes to about pressing the F5 key every 10 mins. I never imagined that my poor keyboard has suffered so much. :-(! No, it still hasn’t taken over the total key logs of other keys! Even then, I have become a stat-junkie, which is crazy, considering the fact that I am not making _any_ money out of my wordpress blog.
Today, I am getting back to my normal self. I am not going to be bothered about my stats anymore. It’ll go up, come down. Whatever. I don’t care. :-D!! I will not stop blogging about my life. I started blogging with 2 objectives
-> upgrade my PHP coding skills [done]
-> Maintain an online journal as to what I have been doing. [still in the process] ;-)!
Anyway, now I am just making sure that I will continue this blogging as part of its original program and not about blog stats. ;-)!
But, just to point out… I will be happy the day I touch 10,000 page views. :-D!! Let the good times roll….
Btw, check out the prestidigitator by PS. I like the way he writes. It’s not flowery, it’s powerful!! :-)! Keep it coming along dude!!
